Jingle Bells ..................

Jingle Bells............................

Two posts in one day Wow unheard of for me lol; 
I have had a lovely day today crafting and wanted to share one of the Tags I made which also fits in with Crafts-Too Challenge You for November Twist 2 - Polychromatic - 3 colours I have used green red and gold very traditional colours which I love.

A sprinkling of Tim Holtz and stickles glitter and my tag was born.  Santa's face isn't really green ....honest but for some reason photo turned his beard green.  (see photo below)as I can't take another as it's dark now, think the light was going when original was taken which was probably the problem.

Distress inks pine needles, olive and barn door were used, also festive greenery die, bakers twine and Gold embossing powder.  Tags are creative expressions stamps with gold EP   added.  Red one reads Hope and Green one Dream, TH Bingo embossing folder was used for the 25 which I cut out and added barn door and a little pine needles.  Red and gold ribbon were added (gorgeous red ribbon was in my prize package from C2CU October challenge).
Lastly I added 2 old bells I have no idea where these came from just found them in my Christmas bits and bobs I would think I recycled them from something...sometime...well Santa has to have Jingle Bells ......doesn't he?

Look I told you his beard wasn't green lol, but this photo was blurred so I didn't us it as main image just wanted you to see his white beard. lol.

  1. Just love this, Maggie - I may not use the traditional red & green much, but I love it when I see it... perfect with this vintage Father Christmas, and gorgeous dimension from all those tickets and leaves. And the embossed flourish is fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Artistic Stamper.
