Paper craft project no. 470: Jingle bells tag for Holiday TAGplorations

Hey guys! I'm back with another tag I made for the Holiday TAGplorations blog hop and linky party at STAMPlorations. Hope you'll check out the event -- 10 crafters who leave comments and/or link up their holiday tags (any holiday!) by November 25 will win gift certificates and some sweet CUTplorations tag diesFor the full details, click here. :o)

Get ready for our 1st Holiday TAGplorations event!

For my holiday tag, I used the largest die from the CUTplorations Luggage Tags nesting dies for my tag base (a thin kraft chipboard). Then I stamped "CHRISTMAS" (Trendy Christmas Trees) in pumpkin pie ink -- on white CS, it would be a dark orange-y color, but on my chipboard, the ink came out a nice brown that's slightly darker than the base. Then on mixed media paper, I stamped the large Christmas bells, colored them with Zig markers, and then fussy cut. I die-cut the Jingle Bells die three times and layered them or dimension. I wanted to emboss the top layer but I couldn't find my Versarmark inkpads. I have one big one and 3 small ones but since my work area is such a mess, who knows where they are. I did find my Delicata golden glitz inkpad and thought that might work so I swiped that on then heat embossed Jade Pearl (green) embossing powder. I rather liked the hint of gold undertone (you can see it in the photo).

I hope you'll check out the tags that the STAMPlorations girls made for the first Holiday TAGplorations event. And we'd love for you to join in on the fun and share your holiday tags -- remember, your tags don't have to be Christmas tags...they can be any holiday you celebrate!
