Inspired Stamps Xmas Tag

If you came here from Deneen then you are in the right place. I hop you are enjoying all these wonderful tags. I know I am. So without farther ado here is my tag.
How cute is this tag? I love how it came out. This is the fanciest tag I have ever made. There are so many details that went into this tag that I broke it up in sections.



I started with decorating a manilla colored large store bought tag with Xmas paper then inked the edges with a maroon ink. I took a white circle sticker (bought at Staples) and punched a hole in the center. Then dabbed alcohol ink on it to make it red. I added that to were the original hole in the tag was. I added a few bells on the tag tied on with twine. This beautiful stamp is from Inspired Stamps. His Little Ones: Holly, Jolly Christmas Girl is her name you can find her here http://www.inspiredstamps.com/servlet/the-99/His-Little-Ones-cln--Christmas/Detail
I colored her with Copics and cut her out.  
The center I tied a ribbon around the tag and added the bottle cap on top of it. Seebelow how I made the snowman bottle cap. I stamps Joy to the World on white card stock then dotted it was red pepper alcohol ink using the Ranger Rick dabber.

For the flowers-well they started out white then I dropped drops of the alcohol ink (picture below) on the flowers until I liked the color of them. Then I took red stickles and rubbed it around on the flowers. I love how they came out and think I am going to buy me a bunch of white ones and color them myself the color I need. 

Now for the bottle cap I bought a pack at Hobby Lobby. I believe it was a 24 pack for $9.99 but I used a 40% off coupon. I bought the clear stickers that were made specially to fit on top of the caps, they are sold right by the caps. I stamped white card stock with the 1 inch snowmen (you can find them here http://www.inspiredstamps.com/servlet/the-33/1%22-snowmen/Detail
I colored the snow woman with Copics and used a 1 inch circle punch to cut her out. I love snowmen (they are my Xmas obsession) so I had to add one on here. Here is a link to where I got the idea for the bottle caps. http://inspiredstamps.blogspot.com/2011/10/12-weeks-of-inspired-christmas_14.html
So there you have it. Now head on over to Jenn's blog and see what she has done with her tag.

I love the idea of buying supplies in a neutral color and coloring them with matching colors as you need them. I buy clear rhinestones and color them with my Copic markers to match. I did that on my tag project, but forgot to mention it.
I love your tag and your snowman on the bottle cap. Have a great day!
