Christmas collage tags

Yesterday I received a phone call that the Machine which is used for radio therapy was 'en panne' which means not functioning so I have my second free morning this week. Probably just as well as I am red and itchy after 23 sessions of breast targeting!

So I have been making Christmas Tags.



I stamped an old Collage Christmas stamp from Hero Arts directly onto patterned paper and white embossed.
Cut out the size I needed to fit inside the already stamped Simple Frame from HA onto PP and cut out frame. I adhered paper to the back as well to strengthen it.
Added a little vintage image which I punched out and some snowflakes punched out of vellum.



This one is made in the same way and I think I will continue making these as little Christmas gifts while I am still inspired.


Now, the other day I downloaded the December calender from Mary Green here. I had an idea with a vintage image I had, so made this card with it.

Thanks for your visit!

Een onverwachte vrije ochtend dus, en je hebt hem goed gevuld! Wat een mooie dingen zeg!
En wat fijn dat het nu niet meer zo lang duurt allemaal, de behandeling!
Goed weekend,
liefs,
Wilmi

I adore when you white emboss your creations. And the way you used the shape of the frame stamp to create your tag works so well! Enjoy your little break from treatment!

These cards and tags are fabulous Jacqueline.
You will be pleased to know my mojo is on the way back and I have made two cards with my village stamp. I have also use the same gorgeous frame stamp, I am so pleased you inspired me to but it. I will post them tomorrow!!

I've been making gift tags for presents for family and friends and I've been using bits and pieces left over from Christmas card making. This was all inspired by you as you use up your bits and pieces! Thank you! It's been so much fun and I loved seeing gift tags on your blog today!

waue beautiful and adorable tag and your card is very sweet

Paula said...

lovely tags, and I like your scarf storage. I admired all the ladies in Europe wearing their scarves so cleverly, and I bought 2 to wear while we were touring, but it is still too hot in Florida to wear them. I felt very chic though.

JeanFB said...

These are wonderful! I love your design on the tags, very clever to layer the frames, backgrounds, and images like that. And the card is beautiful! I downloaded that calendar, too, but never thought to use it this way. Thanks for the inspiration, as always, my friend. And enjoy your days away from the radiation! :)
