A Tag......

So sorry I have been AWOL for a while, this time of year is so busy I have not had much time to make anything. Hopefully I will get back on track soon.

Last night I made a little tag for Claire's challenge on her Waltzingmouse blog.  I do love making tags (probably because they are quick to make!!) and everyone knows how much I love Waltzingmouse stamps so I stayed up late to create this one.

I used 3 different sets on this little tag, firstly I cut out the base with Labels one dies and stamped a border using Vintage Labels one set. (note to self - I must use this set more!!). I  then used Text It with rhubarb stalk memento ink on some red card before cutting a few poinsettia flowers out using a nesties set. I wish I had clear embossed the text as this morinng I realised it doesn't show up very well on the flower. Lastly I used Festive Foilage to stamp some holly leaves on various scraps of green paper and then cut them out to embellish the flower with.  I am hoping that Claire will start to sell dies to match this set at some stage as I use it loads and it would be a lot quicker than cutting all these leaves out.

I finished off with a velvet green brad and a large check gingham bow with a button.
Very quick to make.

Thanks for looking
