Advent Day 17 & 18: Catch up with Tags

img_4220

Sorry about skipping a day.  Unfortunately I had gotten sick so lost several days just staying in bed and recovering.  Still trying to get better, however, at least I am able to get some more posts done.

This year I really played with my embossing folders and coloring the embossed areas.  It was my goal to use things that I already have but really expand with how it’s being used.  Coloring the raised areas with Distress Oxides allowed me to make plain paper into festive backdrops.  For this one, I made a simple shaker card. To make it a bit more special, I stamped a sentiment inside the shaker for added interest.

Both of these projects featured are great for using up scrap paper lying around.

My Day 18 is a long tag using Tim Holtz foam stamps.  I really love the retro flavor of this stamp set and using Distress Inks really gave it a kid’s paint sort of feel.
