Christmas Tag Set {Love - Wish - Cherish - Joy} for Scrapmatts Chipboard




My daughter has just downloaded a Christmas app on her phone &
 delights in reminding me daily how many days, hours & minutes are
left until Christmas!  I don't know about you but for me that is STRESSFUL!!  


Anyway, fortunately Scrapmatts set the Design Team a
challenge to create some Christmas tags this month &
I ended up having a lot of fun getting these made :)


You can see my post @ Scrapmatts HERE - where you will find all
 the product codes & links to the chipboard items in their store.


I started off by painting the Scrapmatts chipboard tags with white 
acrylic paint then created a collage effect using torn strips 
of paper, misting, stamping & embossing.


It really was fun using all the same type of product on these
 tags but mixing & matching them so they were all unique
 & individual yet still very definitely part of a set.


I used Lindy's Stamp Gang mists in Cheshire Cat Cherry
 & Tea Pot Purple,  Flat Fabios Pink Ladies Pink & 
Embossing Powders in Candy Cane Red, Magic Moon Pearls, 
Ghouly Green Goblin & Twilight Jade Slate.


The leaf you see above is metal that I embossed - love how that turned out!  Now that I am designing for Lindy's Stamp Gang I am getting to play about with Embossing Powders a lot more than I used to & they are very cool!!


Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!!

If you are looking for challenges to play at don't
forget about the current one at Flourish with a Bling HERE,
the colour challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang HERE & last
but not least the Mood Board challenge at my own challenge
blog, Scrap Around The World HERE.

All closing midnight EST on Monday :)

Eeek! don't need the added stress of having an app reminding me every day of how long it's to Christmas. Swedes are rather traditional in their Chrissie colours so these are really so refreshing and fun! Marvellous tags all of them, just like a bunch of Christmas candy in vibrant colours. xoxo
