Happy Monday! (That's not always the case right? It's Monday for crying out loud!) So happy Monday anyway! And what makes it even better is a new sketch from Kazan....AND the last sketch until the New Year as Kazan and Laura have decided to take the holidays off!
I was so inspired by the PTI blog hop this weekend that making a tag was super easy! Here is my take on this weeks sketch...
Now, like my blog hop tag, this tag is another big one! Again measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, this is the size of a regular A2 size card. I decided maybe I am "mini-tag" challenged.
So for this tag I used various background stamps and embossing folders. I attached each strip on to a smaller tag (tags were cut using SCAL and my Cricut!) and then matted the whole thing with the larger Kraft tag!
OH...Can you see the little piece of bakers twine? I thought that made a cute little loop on top of the stocking!
I used SU's embossing folder for the stocking! I was just telling Ingrid that I had never used PTI's Stocking Prints yet and was so excited to ink it up because of her inspiration! Well, I still haven't used a stocking from that set! But I did use the die!
You can see I used the die 2 times! One for the full stocking in red and then I cut the top and toe off of the stocking cut in Ripe Avocado! I stamped those smaller pieces with Polka Dots Basics II.
As far as the ribbon on the top, I used Maile's little knot trick and then added a little more! Instead of cutting off the twine I used to tie up the ribbon, I brought it around and through the button and tied a bow! I liked Jen's button she used HERE so I had to add one too!
Well, that is it for me today! Hope your week is fantastic! I have lots of Christmas shopping to get done! And cleaning...I am still working on it...but I hate that part!
We will see you back for the next sketch after the holidays!
