joy to the world tag...

hey!! popping in on this sunny, but cold day here in the PNW with another tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  I have lost count of how many tags I have made, but this one is for day 5.   Julie and Brandi created some amazing tags and challenged us to create something icy or frozen.  I was totally inspired by Brandi's beautiful tag to create my tag.  I used the Essentials by Ellen Season of Sparkle and Brushstroke Christmas stamp sets along with the Essentials by Ellen Brushstroke Joy die.  The layout for my tag is based on the current CAS(E) this Sketch so I will be adding my little tag to their line up.  I started by stamping snowflakes from Season of Sparkle on white cardstock using VersaMark ink.  I applied iridescent embossing powder and heat set.  Once that was done I die cut the tag from the cardstock and applied Distress ink in Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough to my tag fading it out at the bottom.  Joy was die cut from white cardstock three times, adhered together and then adhered to the tag.   I then covered the word with lots and lots of sparkly Ice Stickles in Diamond to give the tag an even icier look.  I stamped the sentiment (from Brushstroke Christmas in black and then trimmed it out.  Once the Stickles had dried I attached the sentiment and then added the ribbon and trim.   I think I will also be adding this to Lori's Visions of Sugarplums challenge which closes soon.


Hope you have a wonderful day...
Supplies: Cardstock: MFT white; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen; Dies:  Essentials by Ellen and ODBD; Inks:  Ranger, VersaFine and VersaMark; SU! iridescent embossing powder; Midori white ribbon, tinsel trims; Ranger Ice Stickles

I love these colors and how you've done them in ombre fashion. The snowflakes are a great background to the sparkly joy sentiment. But I think your ribbons steal the show! I love how you've mixed sheer ribbon with that frayed ribbon - it's a fabulous look! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch!

Just gorgeous, Rosemary ... you've captured the sense of frostiness so beautifully with the cool ombré over the snowflakes, the deliciously shimmery die cut and that fantastic icy looking trim! Hugs, Anita :)
