Tim Holtz Purple Snowflake Nordic Christmas Tag


I'm skipping around a little and sharing Tag 10 for the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.  I have been doing tons of deer projects, so I decided to go a snowy route with this one, but was inspired by Linda's Tag 10 stenciled background, use of snowflakes, sentiment banner and most of all her use of GLITTER PASTE!  Woo hoo!  I'm so happy that she announced that she's now carrying it in the Funkie Junkie Boutique (check out the new products tab).


My friend Madelyn had this exquisite set of Tim Holtz snowflake stamps, so I stamped and embossed lots of tags and cards (more to come).  To create the dimension Linda had on her tag, I layered with a Paper Snowflake die cut and a Tim Holtz button (shank cut off).


My background was inked with Milled Lavendar and Dusty Concord DI to create the embossing resist.  I used the Holiday Knit stencil and BoBunny glitter paste for the bottom portion.  The stamped sentiment is from an old TH set.  I layered some snowflake washi tape at the bottom and mounted my tag onto silver metallic kraft core.


I used a simple seam binding bow and silver embroidery floss with a couple of bells as my topper.  I made this tag especially to inspire my friend Madelyn, who loves the color purple and always shares her stamps with me!  Thanks doll!  <3  I hope you'll play along with Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge, which is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Perhaps you will win either the $50 or $25 gift certificate prize!  To see Linda's tag, click HERE.

Gorgeous snowflakes in the back ground and layered up with that beautiful button! Oh, and the sweater knit in that paste is STUNNING! A great design! Oh HOW I LOVE this! Hugs!

Who would have thought those colours could look so festive!! What a beautiful feast I see before me, the contrast between the white snowflakes against the background is so inspiring Autumn and beautifully embellished. Thank you for sharing another gorgeous tag.

Thanks for visiting my blog recently. After a short vacation, the death of a family member and the holidays quickly approaching I have been out of touch. Working my way back :)

The only word I can think of is sumptuous - the non traditional colouring looks fantastic and really makes those beautiful snowflakes pop and I love the Nordic pattern at the bottom - a gorgeous tag! Hugs, Anne xx

Helen Wallace said...

This is a standout for me Autumn. Who knew that colour would look so festive and Christmassy? The silver is a wonderful foil for the intense magenta and I love that elegant button in the middle. Going to look around for some of the BoBunny glitter paste which you use to perfection.

Sandra said...

Susan said...

Gorgeous tag! Looks pink on my monitor, but whatever color it is, it's so non-traditional and pretty.

Marty Fishman said...

I love your "pink" and silver tag, Autumn! The Bo Bunny glitter paste is gorgeous - I bought some 2-3 years ago and have yet to use it. This inspires me to get it out!! Beautiful...hugs!
