Twelve Tags of Christmas with Viva Las Vegastamps! - Day #8

It's Day #8 and Eight is GREAT!!!
Twelve Tags of Christmas with
Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team!!!
Myself along with members of the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team
will each be making tags every day December 1st thru 12th,
all using the same plate of stamps

Thanks for stopping by! To get back to the top of the hop,

Here is my creation for today....

Back to something a little more Merry and traditional today...the man in the red suit. I used two stamps by Viva Las Vegastamps!, "Santa's Coming" sentiment from plate 1363 and Santa Foot through Ceiling #5395. The background is a creme cardstock run through cuttlebug with distressed brick embossing folder and then rubbed with a variety of distress inks to bring out the detail. Sentiment is stamped in red ink and embossed and rubbed with my gelly hologram pen for some extra shimmer. The edges torn and distressed with distress inks and antique gold dew drop ink. The santa foot is stamped on gloss cardstock and colored with Marvy markers using watercolor technique with water brush. I stamped an additional one to cut out the top where ceiling is broken to layer up on 3-D dots for added dimension. Both Santa foot and sentiment are popped up on 3-D dots. Ceiling is finished off with a great find from Dollar Tree - small pipe cleaner size faux tree branches [love it!!!]. A sheer organza bow tops off this gorgeous tag. I just love all the detail the embossing adds!

  2. I recognize this Santa foot from the great tutorial on the Viva blog--VERY funny!

    Your tag is marvelous, those bricks have such great texture and color, Susan!


  3. Santa's coming, boom! he's here! Your tag captures the moment. Great work!

  5. There's that other foot going down the chimney! Great tag!
