Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge Tag #1

I have accepted the challenge of The Funkie Junkie for her 12 Tags of Christmas.  Please check out her instructions, requirements, and guidelines for the challenge HERE.  The Funkie Junkie will provide an inspirational tag to inspire you. Create your own tag using some element of inspiration from the sample tag.  The challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I have created my first tag based on the sample tag seen HERE.  I love chalkboard and was thrilled to see that FJ had used it!  I gave my tag a beginning layer of paper using teresa collins "Santa's List" collection. Next, I used chalkboard paper from MME Chalk Studio.  I embossed the Santa stamp, which is a very old D.O.T.S. stamp, using white embossing powder.  The sign and LET IT SNOW stamps were then embossed using white embossing powder.  I cut snow flakes using my Cricut and the Let It Snow Christmas Card.  The snowflakes were white embossed.  I added buttons and twine to give them a pop of color.

Participating in this challenge has already given me so many NEW ideas and techniques.  The supplies needed for some of the techniques are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Give the shop a visit - you will be mesmerized by the many products FJ offers.

  1. You definitely achieved a beautiful chalkboard look here Jayne! The colors are wonderful, the Santa is cute as can be and I love the touch of glitter and the red & white striped paper. A wonderful tag - so glad to have you playing along with me this year for the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style!
