Christmas tag card set...


It's time for a new ColourQ challenge and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

The fabulous Tracey McNeely is having a fun event over at her blog at the moment called the 25 Tags of Christmas and she invited the ColourQ team to play along. Unfortunately I have been SO busy this last week that although I made a tag with this in mind, I didn't get the chance to get my tag to her in time so I'm not officially playing along but I do recommend popping over to her blog for a chance to win lots of cool prizes!

Anyway, for this challenge I made a tag, then decided to add it to a card, then went ahead and made a whole set...!

Here's the tag by itself...

These cards were nice and quick to put together - I just cut some Gold Soiree with the Party Pennants Bigz die and used those pieces as the background for my tags, along with embossing the white card base. The trees were stamped with Garden Green (the closest I have to Handsome Hunter) and the baubles stamped with second generation Tangelo Twist (again, the closest I could get to Peach Parfait!). I added some rhinestones to the trees and coloured them with an Old Olive Blendabilities marker which made them look very similar to Lucky Limeade.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Endless Wishes, Festival of Trees
Ink: Garden Green, Tangelo Twist, Real Red, Old Olive Blendabilities
Paper: Gold Soiree dsp, Whisper White, Old Olive, Project Life journalling card
Accessories: Real Red 3/8" ribbon, rhinestones
Tools: Angled Tag Topper punch, Tree punch, Large Polka Dot embossing folder, Party Pennants bigz die, banner framelit

Make sure you check out the fab creations from the rest of the design team this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
