Lit up for Christmas




Happy Friday … I have to be a little bit different… everyone is always saying Happy Monday… or happy that day… but HAPPY Friday!!!!  It is a wonderfully sunny day here in Western NC… and the sky is really blue… love these kinds of pretty days… 

Tim’s tag today was really wonderful… and so are Mr and Mrs Stamp Anonymous…   Love them all… and it was a tough call… as to which one to follow along with …
Tim’s background I had done… so that was out… and I didn’t have the candle stick… so it was between the other two…  Birds… hmmmmm well…. I went with the street light as I hadn’t used that one yet… and I was really wanting to… also the background was so very interesting to me.. I love a free flowing background… and really enjoyed creating my own for this tag…  Each one was created a little bit differently… 

One thing I have to say is that when you buy a die cut plate… you are also buying a stamp and a stencil… using a piece of fun foam… you cut your own stamp… and then using plastic you cut a stencil…. So I always cut out both the first time I use a die cut plate…  so now I had my holly ready to go… and mounted on a little piece of plastic ready to be used… I also cut the lamp post out.. but didn’t mount it… as I used it freely as a shadow stamp… so much easier without it being mounted… 

I also had bought a roll of tissue from Direct Market… and I love it… it is a HUGE ROLL…. 25 feet long… of sheet music.. so you will be seeing a lot of that on my projects now…  I do love music with my work… in all ways..

 I really did enjoy making these tags... that is why there are three of them... the backgrounds kept me going... and even though I am only showing you three there are more... LOL... 
I used my little holly stamp that i made from the die cut... and a few of the distress stains and decorated the edges of a few tags...
A little of this and that also... like a little words... and then some sheet music... (tissue paper)  and then our course each tag has the light post... which I put a little bit of tissue paper behind the light area and colored with markers...  

My Holly leaves on all them are about the same too.. some with distress stains... some with Glassine kraft paper that was distress stained too... and even some all black leaves as a shadow... 
 LOVE
Some have tiny bells, gold or red... and some have pearls.  
Plaid ribbon or seam binding... and also some of the black plastic letters to write a message... love those letters... they are great.... 

Okay... this one I used a 6x6 Impression Obsession Pine Bough stamp... and then also the another one... called scratch... love playing with those stamps... 

Also used some Icey Spruce ink too... love that stuff too...  

 
   You can see the background here a little better... 

Having fun is the best part of it all..  

I also used a glitter on most of the areas where I wanted snow... but this one I used picket fence Distress stickles... LOL... never can tell what is going to create a snow storm... can you...

I love all the tags for one reason or another ... but this one has more of things I really love on it... the balance is the one thing that I love the best of all the tags... but this one is my favorite... as we all say.. for TODAY....  


The light even looks lit.... wow... and the snow is really falling on the leaves... actually the glitter container fell as I was putting it away and it created most of the way it looks... LOL...  love it anyway...  

Don't you just love the sheet music???? I love it..  
Great Stuff.. you can use as little or as much as you desire...  

Well.. what do you think... ??? Are you going to try this tag...??? It is really a fun tag to create...  Easy as pie...

 
This tag also appears on Inspiration Emporium… so please take a few minutes and check out all the WONDERFUL tags there… they look so different and I personally think there are some there that are not on Tim’s … but check it out…

Thanks Shelly for telling me about this site… I love it… will be going there often…  that is for sure… my kind of site…

Hope that you have a fun day no matter what you get into... and that you enjoyed your stay here... Thanks so very much for stopping by for a visit...  
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
