Hello friends and welcome to new followers, so happy to have you stopping by today! I have lots to share with you today. First these fun country style tags that I made with the new Artistic Outpost release Christmas Chalk. If you haven't seen this new plate, you should check it out! It's very versatile and will be great for Christmas crafting this year. I chose to go the chalkboard route on most of the samples I made with it and really love that look.
I'll share the details on each tag but before I do, I wanted to also take the opportunity to tell you that tomorrow, Monday, September 23rd, I will be kicking off my annual 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. You can check out the links on my sidebar to learn about last year'schallenge. And come back on Monday to read all about this year's challenge and to see my first inspiration piece. But basically, the way it works is each week I will post a tag. You will find something on it to give you inspiration and make something to link up. It will run every Monday from now until a week before Christmas which will help you get your tags and cards done for Christmas. And if you complete all 12 weeks by the deadline and follow all the rules, you will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I'm giving away three GCs - one grand prize for $50 and two runners ups for $25 each. And as little gift, anyone who plays and completes all 12 entries will receive a coupon for 10% off their entire purchase at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, good for the month of January 2014. So come back on Monday to see my first inspiration piece and learn all the challenge requirements. Please note: You must have a blog to play in this challenge. Sorry, but I'll explain in the rules on Monday.
And the last one, just a quickie, cut with the ornament die from white CS and stamped with the ledger sheet again, this time in Coffee archival. Plus I stamped the pine tree and holly leaves from Chirstmas Chalk. I quickly finished it off with a few gold ballls and a piece of knotted twine.
And that's it, my friends. All the supplies and tools that are available in my store are listed below. Be sure to come back by tomorrow for the kick off of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style.
These products used to make the tags are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, where Tim Holtz/Ranger products are always 20% below MSRP!
