one final tag...

Hello... another cold day here in the PNW!  I managed to complete one last tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  This is for day 6 to use purple and gray.  The tags that Lisa and Jill created are absolutely gorgeous!  Both tags used a mix of the colors and that is where I took my inspiration from.   At the start of the Thanksgiving/Christmas season my local grocery store always has some of those "painted poinsettias".  Most frequently the colors are purple and teal and that is what I thought of as I came up with an idea for my card.  I used MFT's Mini Modern Blooms stamps and dies as one of the flowers in the set looks a lot like a poinsettia.  I inked up the flower in two different shades of purple, stamped and then die cut them.  I added the centers using a medium shade of gray.  The leaves were stamped in a light gray ink, the veins added with the medium shade and then die cut.  I used a small Spellbinders square die to die cut the squares.  The tag was die cut from a light gray cardstock and then the squares and flowers were adhered.  I die cut a small MFT fishtail flag, stamped the sentiment (from a SSS stamp set) and then adhered that to the tag.  Some Diamond Stickles was brushed on to the flowers to give them that glittery look that the painted poinsettias have on them.   Finished off the tag with purple ribbon and twine.  The layout for my tag is based on the current MFT Wednesday challenge so I will be adding my tag to that gallery as well.  I have included a close up of the flowers. 



Hope you have a wonderful day... and stay warm!!
Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog, white; Stamps:  MFT; Dies:  MFT, Spellbinders, AJVD;  Inks:  PTI, Memento and Simon Says Stamp; Diamond Stickles; PTI ribbon; purple twine

Beautiful card, Rosemary. I love the diecut tag and the beautifully colored flowers. We don't get the painted poinsettias on the East Coast or I haven't seen them in my neck of the woods. Thanks for sharing!
