Last Day Of November

Bring on Christmas.  November is over!
If you follow my blog, you will know that I have been making tags - my one attempt at getting ready for Christmas.   Tomorrow, Dec. 1, I will get out the decorations, buy the tree, and start getting in the mood in earnest.
But for today I am still in "tags mode" and also very pleased to be the guest designer again at Crop Stop.  Here is the Christmas tag I made inspired by Theresa's Love, Joy, Peace tag on day 2 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags challenge:
The front tag and the green backing behind it is cut with an Elizabeth Crafts Design tag die.  The leaves are also cut out with one of the dies in the set leaving a negative cut to show the green behind it.  The two pieces are adhered together with Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent Tape.    The ornaments are stamped with Great Impression stamps, colored with Copics.  Then I added Ranger Glossy Accents (my favorite brand) to each ornament.  Using  Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Applicator and Tim Holtz Distress Ink , I sponged on color on the edges and toward the center of the tag.  The last touch was to make the little bows for each ornament - impossible without the Craft-Dee Bowz tool.

Again, a big thank you to the Crop Stop team for asking me to be a guest designer this month.
Head over there to play their challenges.
