Craft It Up & Link It Up!

Happy Monday! Craftin Desert Divas' Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party is in full swing! Welcome to week 2. The party theme is TAG YOU'RE IT. The sponsors for this party are Too Cute by Jessica ($20 gift card) and Cardz TV Stamps (one stamp set).

Here's my TAG YOU'RE IT project to inspire you to come play along and LINK IT UP!

This was inspired by a YouTube video by Darlene DeVries.

Stampin' Up Stamp sets:
Gorgeous Grunge (snowfall)

Stampin' Up Cardstock:

Stampin' Up Ink:

Other Stampin' Up items used:

Non-SU products used:
Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink
Red Sharpie for tree ornaments
Velvet ribbon from stash
Crop-a-dile to punch hole for ribbon
Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles for tag shape

First I cut out the tag shape and stamped the tree. Then I stamped the snowflakes inked with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. After that I used the Wild Honey distress ink to ink a nighttime glow around the tag not getting too close to the tree to give it a highlighted affect. Added the SVG JOY word with my 2-Way Glue Pen and put the velvet ribbon on the top. LOVE IT!

Thanks for stopping by today! :) Janis
