As promised here is my grandson’s tag for his present from Brian and I. These tags I am making this year ARE over sized … why …. cause it’s more fun! The background on this one is the “rollersmoosh” technique I shared with you in the chapter “3D Abilities” in Vol. #6 of “Canadian Scrapbooker Basics”. I actually used the same roller stamp that I used in those projects. The colors I choose were yellow cadmium, amber clay, olive pastel (all of which are available in the autumn pastels, Fluid Chalk, petal point from Clearsnap) and then I added maroon, Fluid Chalk. I added more stamping with a spectacular, funky snowflake from Stampendous and of course the Judi-Kins, peace and love stamps brought the whole think together. The pine bough came from Dee’s Distinctively dies and the mini tag die that is so perfect for all my tags is from Impression Obsession. What a combo.

Yes, everything "except for "Mr. Grandhandsomeface" started out as white Superstock. Even the ribbon was simply white when I started. The background was achieved with yellow cadmium, amber clay, olive pastel and maroon Fluid Chalk from Clearsnap. The ribbon and one of the frames was brought to you by Clearsnap's, chianti, pigment ink and the yummy green frame and pine bough is Clearsnap's. silk green from the brocade, petal point. Now, that's a petal point EVERYONE should have ... and re-inkers of course!

My “Spellbinder’s dies, provided the frame and the frame, pine bough and tags are all embossed multiple times. One frame and ribbon were brought to you by chianti, pigment ink from Clearsnap  … yummy color and the green was the silk green from the brocade, metallic petal point …. this is a MUST have stamp pad and the re-inkers too of course! The face … well that is my handsome grandson, the “best embellishment” on the tag. This tag will look awesome on my daughter’s tree cause that’s where they all go! ENJOY!
