Snowflake Ribbon Tag

 It's Day 7 of Loll's Christmas Tag Event.


I'm having so much fun making these tags!

I've again pulled things from my UFO box.  It's fun to challenge myself to use these bits.

The background is a piece of Inka Gold Smoosh.
You can find Loll's video tutorial here.

The snowflake ribbon was cut from a piece repurposed from something.
I don't remember where it came from.

I've cut the joy from foam and glimmer so I could get some extra dimension.

I realized I didn't have any stamping so I added a "to you" at the bottom
and embossed it with silver.  If you don't look close, you'll miss it!

So I have stamping, heat embossing, Inka Gold smoosh, and die cuts.



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

LOVE that Inka Gold smooshed background. Such deep, vibrant colours that really play off the silver glitter background, snowflake and sentiment. LOVE the shape of this sweet tag ... need to get some tag dies!! :) Gorgeous design, gorgeous tag, my friend. Thanks for sharing at my tag event. xx

This is some really rich 'smooshing' and I love the swirls of color all through the surface of the tag. Liking the shape of the tag very much as well, and the silver swirling star looks grand & sparkling. I saw the stamped embossing sentiment at the bottom. Lots of fun & beautiful techniques on this pretty tag! TFS Have a great week coming up. Hugs

Bonnie, I just love the use of the glitter paper on this! The colors in your Inka Gold smooshing are just gorgeous! I did chuckle about the no stamping too since I had that happen a couple of times! Nice save on that though!

Another good one. Love the smoosh background colors with the silver glimmer. Hooray for your UFO box -- seems to have a lot of usable goodies tucked away in there (!)

Gorgeous! That background is quite stunning. I could get lost in it, just staring at it for hours. Plus the rest of the tag is so sparkly! Very, very cool!

Beautiful little tag Bonnie! Love the inka gold smooshed background and the glittery silver shadow. The snowflake ribbon is just gorgeous, I have had my eye on that die for a while now. The jem in the center really makes this snowflake shine. Love the joy and your "for you" as well. Hugs, Brenda

Great contrast here between the silver glitter background and the jade green over the top Bonnie, and adore the sparkly snowflake and sentiment too. x

Way to go on adding that stamping... It's often the thing I find easier to ignore. X
