On The First Day Of Christmas The Queen Gave To Me...



I'm on the wagon with the rest of my QKD Girls!!! We're rockin' out the 12 days of Christmas and we're doin' it in style!!

I'm making 12 tags...each one will be a surprise!!! They will all be using QKD stamps and I will be posting a new one for the next 12 days!!!

Here is my first tag!!!I used my Cricut and my Doodlecharms cartridge to cut out the circle tags plus inserts. I inked up the Fantasy Christmas Tree in Inky Ocean Green pigment ink and heat set it with a dusting of red, sparkly embossing powder. I then added gems as the ornaments and lightly colored in the rest using colored pencil. The sentiment 'Magic Can Happen' is from THIS set. I inked it up in the same green and heat set it. I then ran it through my scanner, enlarged it in MS Paint, and printed it out. I trimmed it out and then used my SU! ticket punch to trim the corners.

(I always have candles lit in my studio when I work and I LOVE how you can see the flickering of them in the face of the brads!!!)

I then took my glue pen (A MUST HAVE) and green glitter and blinged up the sentiment!!

I added the tree with pop dots to give it some nice dimension and lastly added 2 green polka dot brads for some purposeful imbalance.

I stitched around the perimeter of the tag in a zig zag pattern with green thread. Lastly, I added gold cording as the holder for this tag.

I hope you enjoy and don't forget to check out my other team members who are in this challenge with me!! They are all listed on my side bar!!! Go give 'em some love!!

Thanks for visiting!!
