Tag Tuesday on Wednesday


Nuts, I'm a day late with this, but it just would not photograph!!  That's what I get for making an acetate tag, I guess, LOL!  Anyway, this is my entry for this week's Tag Tuesday Challenge at Kard Krazy, which is to make an entirely paperless tag.  What a fun challenge for us papercrafters, eh?  So I used acetate for the base, stamped with the Swirling Snowflakes backgrounder from CHF in white StazOn.  The Santa image is by Artistic Outpost, stamped on Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas using Memento dye ink in London Fog.  I used some Vintage Photo to color him up a bit (Distress Ink).  I think the fuzzy brown and white trim is May Arts, but I'm not sure (I could cuddle that stuff all day, it's so soft! :) ).  The lace is vintage, the rhinestones are from Kaiser, the posy is from Prima, and the rust-colored petals are off a bloom from a big box store (love to ravage those blooms for my flower stash!).  Thanks, Louise, for another fun challenge!  And congrats to Louise on all of those Stampington publications (it's the Louise show lately, I tell ya - fabulous work!)

What a fun tag! The stamped acetate is beautiful, even if it wasn't cooperative!

This is wonderfully original....so many rich embellishments on acetate!

(BTW...aluminum of soda cans embellishes beautifully!)

Jean, in the first place, it's not late. It's only late if you post it after I put up the next challenge..lol.
Secondly, I am amazed at the way you turned a piece of plastic into a wonderful vintage creation. Love it!
Lastly, thanks for the nice comments about being published:)
