This tag was created using Mark’s Finest Papers new stamp set – Seasonal Poinsettias and the sentiment from another new set called Time to Chill. The manila tag was colored with the smoosh technique using re-inkers with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist and water. I then stamped the wreath image and the sentiment using versamark ink and embossing with gold detail powder. I then used a craft knife to cut out the center of the wreath. I stamped JOY using versamark ink and Rose Red ink onto another tag and clear embossed it before using foam squares to mount it behind the wreath so the word would show through. I added this luscious bow through the hole of the tag.
This is my creation using the new set - Time to Chill
Is this little penguin cute, or what? I love the ice flows behind him too. I stamped the image onto a flecked natural cs with black ink and clear embossed. I then colored the ice with a Copic marker, cut out and popped up onto the front of this little treat container.

Now here are all the other designer's blogs. Go visit and leave a little love to be eligible to win a new stamp set!
