E ora il mio progetto! Una Etcetera tag a tema.... ovviamente Natale!
My project: an Etcetera tag themed.... obviously.... Christmas!


La mia Etcetera tag è tutta a tema natalizio con palette kraft, bianco e un tocco di rosso! Ho usato come base per coprire la tag un foglio di Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain Cardstock Ranger che ho colorato con Distress paint e Distress Stain Spray.
Ho proseguito preparando la parte centrale passando un foglio di cartoncino kraft nella Big shot con il folder 3D mechanics. Lo so che non è natalizio, ma mi piace così tanto che lo uso dovunque! E poi si abbina bene agli splendidi fiocchi di neve di Tim holtz Stampers Anonymous!

For my Christmas  Etcetera tag  I chose kraft, white and a touch of red! I used Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain Cardstock Ranger as a base to cover the tag, which I colored with Distress paint and Distress Stain Spray.
I continued preparing the central part with a sheet of kraft cardboard and Mechanics  3D  folder. I know it's not so festive, but I like it so much that I use it everywhere! And then it works well with the beautiful snowflakes of Tim holtz Stampers Anonymous!


Ho tagliato il fiocco di neve centrale con  Tim Holtz Sizzix Snowflake Rosette Decorative Strip. Ho usato un pochino di Grit Paste e Distress Dry glitter Clear Rock candy per renderla più natalizia!

I cut the central snowflake with Tim Holtz Sizzix Snowflake Rosette Decorative Strip. I used a little bit of Grit Paste and Distress Dry glitter Clear Rock candy to make it more winter!


Ho inchiostrato il folder Mechanics con inchiostro bianco e poi l'ho passato nella Big Shot. Per colorare le parti in rilievo ho usato Distress Oxides Iced spruce,  Hickory Smoke e Gathered Twigs.

I inked the Mechanics folder with white ink and then I passed it in the Big Shot. I used Distress Oxides:  Iced spruce, Hickory Smoke and Gathered Twigs to color the embossed parts.


Qua e là alcuni fiocchi di neve dal set Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Swirly Snowflakes usati con Versamark e White Ranger embossing powder.

Here and there some snowflakes from  Tim Holtz Stampers  Anonymous Mini Swirly Snowflakes set  used with Versamark and Ranger White embossing powder.



Per la neve Grit paste e  Distress Dry glitter Clear Rock candy come per il fiocco in alto! Questi due ragazzi sono adorabili!

For the snow Grit paste and Distress Dry glitter Clear Rock candy as for snowflake on the top! These two guys are adorable!

Hi Barbara!! Once again you have outdone yourself. Of course, I know how much you love Tim Holtz and Christmas (two of your favorite things). This was a dream challenge for you as a SSS Monday DT member ;) Where to start. First I love the colors! That burst of red on the kraft tag is lovely. Then using the Mechanics 3D folder was so unexpected and genius on this tag. Great on the back drop of the wood grain texture!!! (I just got my 3D Woodgrain Texture Fade. You know I'm going to love playing with it!). then that rosette snowflake at the top ... sigh. So wintery and beautiful!. Your details, like the stars in the middle of you snow flakes, just make this tag exceptional. Love Love Love it!!! Hugs my friend -- Mary Elizabeth
