Week 4 of CCCB Tags Challenge

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.  We had Christmas over two days so that we could spend it with both sides of the family.  We had a lovely time.

We have a few days left of our Tags challenge.  We would love for you to take part.  For some reason I was a bit ahead of myself and I posted my tag in week 3 and I was thinking I had posted it late!  It must have been the lead up to Christmas that got me all confused. 

The rest of the samples from our design team are now showing, so please pop by and take a look.

Remember to also drop by The Crafter's Cafe and join us in our Open House.

I have the privilege of hosting a game  - the ABC Game which has now started and runs for the next three days.  Come along and take part and go into the random draw of winning an image from The Stamping Boutique.  You also get a token for taking part and you can see here how the token game works. 

Enjoy the rest of your week.

CCCB - Christmas Tags - Week 4


Sorry my post is late this week. The tag includes an image is from The Stamping Boutique.  Unfortuantely The Stamping Boutique is closing its doors on 31st December.  They have such wonderful images and I am sad to see it go.  So make sure you drop by and buy any you would like before they close.

For my tag this week I have gone for the same style as my earlier one this month, but in green.  I wish I had used the same red marker in the stocking as I did in the other tag, but I didn't check until it was too late. 

Here is my tag for this week.

Cardstock: Gumball green, Whisper white
Image: Christmas Stocking from The Stamping Boutique 
Stamps: Stampin' Up - Come to Bethlehem - for senitment
Other: Stampin' Up markers, white ribbon, Sizzix snowflake embossing folder

Our sponsor this month is R J Jackson.

You can see the other wonderful creations the rest of the team has made here.  

  Here is the pair of mine together. 

Also at The crafter's Cafe we have Open House from 25th Decmeber to 1st January.  Come also at any time and take part.  There will be games and challenges.

Thanks for dropping by.  Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

TCCB - December Challenge is Tags

It is now week 2 of our final challenge for 2012.  Time for Team B to show you some examples of this month's challenge which is to create a tag.   You can use any images, stickers, embellies, etc... from any company and make any kind of tag you like. 

The challenge will run until midnight 31st December so there's plenty of time to enter.  Please be sure to read all the rules before entering.  You can find them here.

My tag features an image from Robert Jackson our sponsor.  
This is a simple, but effective tag.  I have printed and coloured the image, then fussy cut it.  I have adhered it to the white cardstock which has been dry embossed with a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder. I sponged the edges before adhering it to the red tag.  I also added the sentiment and ribbon.
Cardstock: Red, white
Image: Candy Canes from Robert Jackson
Stamps: Come to Bethlehem from Stampin' Up for Sentiment
Other: Sizzix snowflake embossing folder, Real Red and Gumball Green Stampin' up Markers, white ribbon and sponge. 

Take a look and see what others in the design team have made. 
Remember to come back next week and see what Team A have for you.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.
