Louise - 3 Tags for Christmas

Hi Louise here with a few gift tags to share with you.  I have actually made these for my children as decorations for the tree, hence the monogram letter on each one.

Firstly we have Connor's Tag.......

 For all three cards I cut 2 labels on my cricut with the George and basic shapes cartridge and stuck them together to make the tags a bit firmer.   For this tag I embossed a background in white ep with the music notes  stamp from the December 25 clear stamp set by KaiserCraft, I then painted with glimmer glam be positive, once the glimmer glam was dry I buffed with a chux cloth to bring out the white embossing. I stamped the  "25" from the December 25 stampset with versamark and embossed again with white EP, I then inked over with Distress ink in Fired Brick. I finished the tag with some spotted organza ribbon, bakers twine and an AC Thickers letter.
 Angus' tag took a lot longer to complete and looks very shiny and textured in real life.  I started by inking the tag with a sponge with Distress ink in Fired Brick, I then stamped the flourishy stamp from December 25 stamp set in versamark and embossed with copper ep, I then painted over with be positive glimmer glam, once again I burnished when it was dry with a chux cloth.  I then sprayed with glimmer mist in iridescent gold and dried with my heat gun, I brushed the edge of the tag with glimmer glaze in sea kelp and stamped the sentiment with black stazon.  The chipboard star is painted with glimmer glam be positive and covered with royal coat gloss, once dry I I edged it with a gold inkpad.  I used a kaisercraft wooden flourish and coloured it with a gold inkpad.  the A is another AC Thicker.
And lastly Jodie's tag.  Painted completely with glimmer glam heffalump and I  then stamped the angel from December 25 stamp set and embossed in silver.  The roses and crystals were attached with my heat gun and a pink organza ribbon tied and bowed at the top to finish.
