Santa's Tags with a Twist


Hello..hello...Joni here for your Monday post! So excited today for this is my very first time post as a new DT member here at Neat & Tangled. 

For today I would love to showcase the Neat & Tangled Santa's Tags stamp set. I know that the December holidays are in the past now, but I want to share the dandelion image I create using the two asterisk or snowflake image from this set...which I really love. You can easily create different colors of dandelion image you like :)

Here's how I did it....

1. First I created a circle image with a pencil very lightly, you can draw this or trace it (you will erase this anyway after all your inking is done). This will be your guide where you will put your alternating images of the two asterisk or snowflake. You can use different colors its really up to you <3.

2.For the stem of my flowers I used the line image that is also part of the Santa's Tagset where you can see
below.


3. For my leaves on my flowers I just cut a piece of white foam and adhere it on my acrylic block temporarily and use this as my leaf image.



For my card I first created a card from a white cardstock then cut a panel same size as my A2 card and started distressing the sides of my card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peacock Feathers.

Then start stamping my images like from the above photo. As for the sentiment "magic inside" is also from Santa's Tags, stamped it with Delicata Gold ink.

Lastly, I added some clear glitters from Martha Stewart on the individual asterisk image, for added touch
when it hits the light :)


Here's the bottom of the card. You can also see I fussy cut my leaves and adhere it for added dimensions.


Here's the full view of the card.


For my next card have the same concept, I am not sure if you guys have seen the lamp from Ikea just a little inspiration for my next card.


For this card I added a gold string and a strip of patterned paper at the bottom and voila, really simple card.


Can you tell I really love this stamp set? For my last project I created a tag for my treat bag using again Santa's Tags. This time I used the tag that came with the set and stamped it in black ink. Then die-cut the foil cardstock with Wplus9 Stackers: Hearts and added some cut image I created using the asterisk or snowflake image and create a subtle look for my dandelion, for it not to steal the spotlight from the foil heart and the gold embossed fussy cut sentiment :)

Lastly, I added some sequins, vellum, gold twine, and black and white chevron twill to finish off my tag.



Here's the treat bag all packaged up with my tag for the day of hearts :)


I hope you guys enjoyed!
Have a Wonderful week :)

Thank you so much for visiting !
