Fa La La La La

Hello.  Welcome.  I seem to be on a bit of a tag extravaganza at the moment.  Saw these lovely xmas tags by Anneke over at the PaperArtsy blog and thought I'd give them a go.   Really liking the grey and red combo.  

I started by cutting my tags from charcoal grey card and then I sponged on some pale grey acrylic

I spritzed the tags with sparkle shimmer mist and then stamped with the leaf stamp from PaperArtsy USNT4 set and Memento London Fog.  I added some white paper at the bottom.

I didn't have red/white tape so I have used bits of DCWV papers.  The tree is from PaperArtsy SIEN10F, the car is a sizzix die cut coloured with the same pale grey paint and stamped with the brickwork stamp from PaperArtsy HP1105.  The mistletoe is a Kaisercraft stamp.  And the greeting went a little bit wrong LOL.  I added some stitching with a red sharpie and some rhinestones.  

The tree is a MemoryBox die wraped with embroidery cotton.  more DCWV paper and a Kaisercraft greeting.  Then I went a little mad and did some stitching around the edge.  

The same mistletoe stamp and another KC greeting.  The deer is a Spellbinders die.  Build a Deer.  I had a slight challenge with his legs!!  Sorted in the end.  A bit of embroidery thread around his neck and he's good to go.  The tag ties are all from the 'pretty wool' box.  

Quite pleased with my grey and red trio.
