Funkie Junkie 12 Tags - Tag 8

Hello Friends

Yeay!  I am up to number 8 of my 12 Tags of Christmas with The Funkie Junkie.  As I have previously mentioned, this Challenge is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

As I have done on all previous tags, here is Linda's tag.....

I just love the fun and red on this tag. 

I was on a bit of a roll last night and actually made 2 tags though I wanted to ensure this was all adhered securely before I moved it to take it downstairs and take some piccies.  So without further ado...
I took some SU Vanilla cardstock and cut it with my TH Tag die.  Then using an Inkadinkado stamp and Vermillion Archival Ink (AI) I stamped then clear embossed the Santa image, heat setting it with my heat tool.  I then made a mask for the stamped image and swooshed some Bundled Sage Distress Stain (DS) before adding some Vintage Photo and Pine Needles Distress Ink (DI).  I then splashed some water over the tag, just cos I like the look!  I masked off the the word Believe on TH Silhouettes stamp and inked with black AI.  I then stamped the background with Pine Needles DI and Black Soot DI using a mixture of TH and Barn Door Stamps. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI.
After drying with my heat tool I inked the TH Holly leaves with Pine Needles DI and clear embossed it.  I cut the Poinsettia using some felt (the snowflakes were already printed on there), using my TH Tattered Florals die.  I added some red jute which had been sent to to me in my package from The Funkie Junkie Boutique recently. The snowflake was also in the package and I thought looked it looked perfect on the Poinsettia along with a wooden star button tied with some burlap string.
Some ribbons, bells and another piece of burlap string and some TH Forever Red Perfect Pearls mist.  

Thanks for calling by.  Hopefully I shall be able to find time to make the other three tags this weekend.  Unfortunately our central heating pump has been playing up recently so we bought a new one last weekend and Hubby is fixing it tomorrow, but it involves removing half the bathroom wall of tongue and groove, a lot of swearing and cups of coffee.  No doubt the bathroom will need repainting then and all before Christmas!

Oh my goodness...another fabulous tag. You are rocking the tag world this week.
Sorry to hear about the heat pump...that sounds like a lot of work. You are lucky your husband is so handy...min would have run for the hills bright about now!

I wen to the sale and got some of the Ranger Distress stain. I bought the beige-y ones as I thought they were versatile and I do have some of the inks in brighter colours so will check out Utube to see if there is a way I can incorporate those.

Fabulous tag, I love the idea of stamping in a different colour to black (something I tend to forget) . Great idea of using the tattered floral as a poinsettia, it had never dawned on me....I think I shall be using yours as inspiration later today.

Good luck with the boiler, what a bummer, but great that your hubby is handy and can fix it (these things always happen at the worse time though!).

Good luck with the other tags....your gonna be busy today!

Another brilliant tag Sam, the green and red is so Christmassy. Love the tiny bells too. I think l own about three distress inks but may get them out in the NY for a bit of a play. It's time to get inky!

Hope the pump replacement goes ok, l don't envy you.

Big hugs xx

Sensational! Your background turned out fabulous and I love your Santa stamp. Beautiful work with the poinsettia and burlap too! The jingle bells are the perfect finisher for this tag. Glad to see you sprinting toward the finish line!
