Christmas Cuddlers!

Sherry here with you today.  I hope you’re enjoying the Christmas Blog Hop and you’ve kindled your creativity along the way!  It’s still not too late to follow along with the hop and get your name in the drawing for a grab bag of Quietfire Design rubber stamps.  In case you missed it, and want to go back and look things over, here’s our schedule for this week:
Since you are here today anyway, you need to hop over and check out what Suzanne has done for her project!

I have one more project this week for you using the new Christmas Cuddlers Word Set!  

ChristmasBlessingsTag

I used a manila shipping tag for the base, which was inked with the Wrinkle Free-Distress Technique using Iced Spruce and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks that were misted with water containing Gold Perfect Pearls.  Once the tag was dry, it was run through the Grand Calibur with Spellbinders Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities.  

The sentiment Christmas Blessings was embossed in Gold and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels One.  The same Wrinkle-Free Distress was used on another tag for the sentiment.

The embellishments for the tag were also made from manila tags that had been inked first and then die cut.  The evergreen branches were inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and highlighted with Crystal Stickles.  The pine cones were inked with Gathered Twigs, stenciled with Forest Moss, then highlighted with Crystal Stickles.  Both the branches and pine cones were die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Fall Foliage.

The ornament was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders 2012 Holiday Tree, colored with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, then covered with Milled Lavender Distress Stickles.  The seam binding ribbon for the pine cones and the top of the tag were dyed with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. 

That’s all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and remember you have until midnight tonight to leave comments for the Designers during the Blog Hop.  Each Designer will be drawing a winner from the comments left on their blog.
