Festive and lots of techniques! I just had to play in Loll’s Twelve Tags of Christmas! I LOVE tags!
Getting a good photo of all these techniques was almost too much for a very amateur photographer like me! I have a terrible time giving up though! lol So, the top two close ups are to show the gold embossing powder on the embossing paste.
I cut a tag with the largest MFT pierced tag die in white 110# cover card-stock
I did Loll’s pearl background technique on it next…the only thing I changed from what she does is instead of using plastic wrap, I used a plastic bag and put my hand inside it, scrunched it up a little, picked up the pearl mixative and pounced, keeping my hand clean! haha The right one anyway! lol
Next, using the ink blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress ink pad, I inked the whole tag.
Over the top of that I placed the Tim Holtz stencil and applied white embossing paste. Cleaned it up then…
I dumped Ranger Queens Gold embossing powder over the whole tag, removed the excess and heated it with a heat tool.
I LOVE the look of the powder on the paste!
I die cut the Seasons Greetings Avery Elle die from gold metallic card-stock
I did cut the Penny Black holly die from Copic coloring card-stock.
Color the holly cut with Copic markers
Then with the matching Penny Black holly stamp, I stamped the colored die cut, after stamping off on scrap paper, with Gathered Twigs Distress ink pad. This stamp is from several years ago and they don’t advertise that it matches but it does and looks so awesome! Another, exclamation when finished!!! LOVE it!
I adhered everything to the tag with mounting squares cut to fit.
I think I will hang this on my Christmas tree, that’s how happy I am with it! : )

Wow, what a gorgeous tag Pam!
Love this tag…tho I don’t make tags this would work on a card…
Thanks for the link and explanation too…This is very cool…love the gold!
This is gorgeous! Did you add something to the holly die cut to get it to have a sheen? And I didn’t know that the die fit with the stamp – great tip!
Such a gorgeous and classy tag, Pam!!!! I hope you don’t mind, but I had to download it for future reference! I love tags and this is phenomenal!
Beautiful and looks like lots of fun!
What a cool couple of techniques you used on this Pam! Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial and your tag making steps. I am going to have to try it.
WOW !!!! Pam you have outdone yourself on this tag. It is totally awesome and I LOVE it !!!!
AMAZING!! Gorgeous tag Pam … love all the layers. And great idea to use a plastic bag for the faux mother of pearl technique … good way to keep those hands clean! 🙂 LOVE all the wonderful texture from your harlequin stencil paste and glitter on top. Beautiful colouring of the holly and berries and the gold die-cut sentiment is icing on the cake! 🙂 Thanks so much for playing along with my Christmas tag event! Loll xx
Pam, I echo Loll…this is simply amazing. Love the harlequin stencil with the paste and the silvery look. All the additional embellies further ‘iced the cake’ so to speak, and it’s just beautiful with all the various techniques you’ve explored during the creation. LOVE IT! TFS
Forgot to mention, the Queens Gold is my fav of all the gold embosses I’ve used to date. It always shows up with a wonderful sheen.
Very very pretty and so festive. hugs, Ruth Ann
