12 tags of Christmas week #3

I am working on my 12 tags of Christmas with
This is week #3 tag. Will get back to week #2. Was excited and inspired by this one. Loved the Funkie Junkie sweater look. i also took inspiration from Autumn and used border stamps for background. I inked a tag I made from upcycled x-ray folders with warm red Color box chalk ink. Then stamped with Christy Tomlinson border stamps with the Ranger sandal acrylic paint dabber which I love. I painted red bells with a brown copic marker to make them blend better. Tied the bells around the reindeer die that I had cut last year. Inked some paper green and punched the pine. I sometimes just ink paper with whatever is handy instead of looking for a paper that matches. I love that look of painted or inked paper. Also did that with the paper I used for the TH Merry Christmas stamp. Inked my ribbon at the top and added a bit of black that I cut from the ribbon i used on the bottom of the tag. I love making these tags.. The 25 is from a ruler strip i had.


  1. So pretty! The sweet deer in music sheet paper is adorable!

  2. You used some of my favorites here, Carol. The reindeer made from sheet music and the Christmas stamped ticket - fabulous. And the strip stamps are such a clever substitute for the Holiday Knit die cuts! Terrific tag for week #3. Thanks so much for joining the fun.


  3. Great take on third week, love the "music reindeer"!

  4. Love the music paper for the reindeer and the black trim!
