JINGLE BELL-JINGLE BELL


Hello crafters friends, followers and visitors.
My name is Agnes and you know me as flowerdisco from 

Come and visit anytime. I am always making "this n' that" but mostly cards I like to share with you since nobody else here at home cares, lol.

I am one of Pam's Gyptian's designer and today is my turn to share a project with you.

I am in the "easy tag making stage" right now, :) 
We all know the holidays are very close and WE, the ones that procrastinate a lot, HEHEHE, don't have a lot of time to be making very detailed cards/projects these days. At least not me, ;)

BUT, In my efforts to be ahead of the game this year, I decided to start making my holiday tags for some special friends and family. I am also thinking to make two small garlands from this cut and use them for the two doorways that lead to my kitchen and dining room.
I used the Christmas Noel Solutions cartridge for this project and I believe this cartridge is retired but I am not 100% sure of it.

I introduce to you  now my beautiful

Jingle Bells Tag
cut at 3.5 inches high
This cut is number 12 in the cartridge.
You can click on the photo for a bigger view.

I used all the features, including shadows, blackouts, shift and non-shift ones but only two different papers.

The red patterned designer paper is from My Mind's Eye and its thickness is more like cardstock and it already has all the bling you need for this tag.

 The cardstock I used for the blackout and shadow features is a thicker cardstock from the Martha Stewart brand I bought a while ago on sale.

 I inked both sides: front and back.

 I used foam tape on most of the layers for the dimensional effect I always try to incorporate in my projects.

 The button is a vintage button I inherited.

As you can see, it was a really fun cut that became in a pretty and easy tag, and it will beautifully compliment some of those special gifts for some special family and friends.
I made another tag for my Thanksgiving hostess and you can see it here. I hope you enjoyed them both and maybe they help you with your handmade holiday projects.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and I do not know if I will be back here at Pam aka The Bug Bytes before next year so I wish you a very Happy and Merry Christmas!!! too.
Love you and my best wishes to you all.

Thanks Pami for having me over once more. I sincerely appreciate your kindness.


NOTE: No Gypsy screen photos since all I did was cut and nothing really fancy. I know you will be glad I did not add more photos to this post, lol.

I am having some drama from the lady having a fit (totally unexpected and don't really know whats going on there, nevr expected that!) but drop me an e-mail with your e-mail (I can't find it on your blog) and I can give you some directions if your still interested and I can kind of fill you in on what's going on. Boy I don't like Drama and not sure how all this started but......What can I say but "Oh My"! LOL
