Twinkle & Sparkle


Hey Quietfire Fans! It's all about Christmas in July this week on the blog and I'm excited to share my Twinkle & Sparkle Tag. 


My tag features a variety of Quietfire Stamps and A Way With Words Dies. Grab a cup of your favourite Christmas beverage and learn how to recreate my Twinkle & Sparkle tag at home. 


To start, die cut the Flourished Oval Frame die out of the middle of a tag. 


Set the Flourished Oval Frame aside. You'll need the tag with the frame outline. Apply Emboss It Ink to the Merry Christmas Background stamp and stamp onto the tag. Reapply the ink to the stamp and stamp again on the remainder of the tag. Sprinkle Glacier White Embossing Powder over top of the tag. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of the tag. Use a baby wipe to wipe the ink off the embossed words. Spritz the ink with water.


Grab the Flourished Oval Frame. Apply Emboss It Ink to the frame. Sprinkle Charred Gold Embossing Powder over the entire surface of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Next you'll need a plain tag. 


Using a blending tool with foam and blend Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink in the middle of the tag. Spritz the ink with water. Dry the tag with a heat tool. Apply Emboss It Ink to the Twinkle & Sparkle stamp from the Bright Holidays Word and stamp onto the middle of the tag. Sprinkle Doubloon Emboss Powder over the word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Apply Emboss It Ink to the dot stamp from the Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Stamp set and stamp randomly around the Twinkle & Sparkle sentiment. Sprinkle Iridescent Shimmer Embossing Powder over the dots. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Adhere the Flourished Oval Frame inside the tag that has the Flourished Oval Frame cut out. 


Distress the edges of both tags. Ink the edges of both tags using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Foam square the tag with the frame overtop of the tag that has the sentiment on it.


Die cut three snowflakes from the Brr word die out of white cardstock. Add a glitter dot to the middle of each snowflake.


Use a paint brush and Black Soot Distress Spray Stain to splat the ink randomly on the tag. Adhere one snowflake in the top right corner of the frame. Adhere the other two snowflakes on the bottom left side of the frame. 


Tie a white ribbon at the top of the tag. To finish off the tag, choose a couple of metal snowflakes and tie them to the middle of the bow with a piece of twine. 

Here are a couple of close up's of the Tag.




Thanks so much for joining me today and taking a look at my project! I hope that I've inspired you to want to recreate my Twinkle & Sparkle Tag at home.

  1. I’ve been trying to decide what made this lovely tag stand out for me and then it suddenly hit me: although you’ve used some wonderful, traditional Christmas colors with the shades of red and gold, you’ve done a gentle mix-up of the expected. Snowflakes are usually seen with blue and silver— but yours works beautifully! I would probably not thought to do that and seeing is believing. Your creation is stunning!

    Thanks for a jolt of creativity to help get me out of the rut!
