Gecko Galz Christmas Tags



 Here are two tags I made:





Tag 1: Small Tag

Products Used
------------------------
Sizzix / Tim Holtz Tag and Tie Die
White Cardstock
Gesso - white / meduim thickness
Close To My Heart Reinker Crystal Blue
Close To My Heart Saddle Brown ink
Snowflake Stencil
Winter Tree Stamp / by Rubber Stampede
Liquid Applique by Marvy
Copic markers
Pop squares
clear rhinestones
Ribbon
I used gesso to texture my white tag to give it a snowy look and then after drying I took some gesso and tinted it blue with some reinker and took a snowflake stencil and dabbed them on the four corners of the tag. After it was completely dried I took a stamped image of winter trees and glued it in the center of the tag, using liquid applique I dabbed it over the tree branches so they looked snowy. I colored my snowman from Gecko Galz Dec, Digital Stamps/Snowman Way with my copics and fussy cut it, then pop dotted it on the tag. I put a small clear rhinestone in the middle of the snowflakes. Lastly I used a ribbon from my stash to use as a tie.
 
Tag 2: Large Tag
Products Used
---------------------------
Sizzix / Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplates Die
Cream Cardstock
Gesso - white / meduim thickness
Close To My Heart Reinker Crystal Blue
Close To My Heart Saddle Brown ink
White Doily
Snowflake Stencil
Pop squares
clear rhinestones
Ribbon
This tag is cut from cream color cardstock and I used gesso that I tinted blue to stencil on snowflakes in each corner. I put clear rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes. I inked around the tag with Close To My Hearts Saddle Brown ink. I inked around a white doily with the ink and glued it to the center of the tag and glued a inked scalloped blue flurry circle in the middle of the doily. Then glued the image to the center of the scallop. The image and words are from Gecko Galz Winter Wishes 1 collage sheet. I fussy cut the words, inked around them and pop dotted them on the tag.
