Stamptacular Challenge 14

Hi girls, I can't believe we are onto Stamptacular Challenge 14 already! This week our theme is "Christmas in July" so dust off your christmas stamps and DPs and pull out your punches and join in with the fun. We have a fab prize this week sponsored by the DigiStamp Boutique and the DT have done an awesome job as usual, so be sure to check out their blogs too.For my DT project this week, I have made a tag. Last year I was very short on tags as I left them all until the last minute, but I'm going to be prepared this year.... famous last words! Apologies for the bad photo, my camera just wasn't playing not sure what was wrong!

I'm planning to make several sets of tags using my PB 12 days of christmas set. The stamps are ideal as they are a perfect size for a gift tag and instead of starting at one.... I went right in there at 5!!! The stamp is coloured with distress inks and I have used gold stickles all around the ring and red stickles for the bling and the number on the sentiment. The papers are DCWV and my MS punch has finally arrived so I couldn't resist using it to make a border for the bottom.

Card/Paper: Red and white card, DCWV - Christmas Wishes
Stamps: Penny Black 12 Days of Christmas
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, weathered wood, spiced marmalade, fired brick
Embellishments: Ribbon, brad, jewels, red and gold stickles
Tools: MS doily lace punch, cuttlebug, nesties, water brush.

Thanks for looking x
