Inspired By All the Little Things #72 and The Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll - 3

The inspiration photo at Inspired By All the Little Things gave me the perfect outlet for my NBUS Concord and 9th tree die.
My card is my usual literal translation. ;)
I cut the tree from some new metallic paper from Neenah that I got at WalMart.  The embossing lines come with the die and I used Stickles for my 'ornaments'.  Once I had the tree done, I struggled with how to do a sentiment.  W&W to the rescue.  I stamped the peace, love, joy on Smoke cs with Smoke ink.  The tree is popped up on some gray fun foam.

Next up is the tag for the Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends.  I started to post yesterday with this tag.  Notice anything missing? 

The rules say you have to have stamping and I forgot that little detail.  Fortunately I had a way to solve it and here's the revision.
On day three Loll made a tag using glass bead paste.  I bought some a while ago and so I thought I'd give it a try.  First I masked off an area of a TH stencil and inked it with Distress Ink.  Before removing the stencil I went over it with the glass beads, then lifted the stencil and let the tag dry.  I added a sentiment from TH cut from gold foil.  The stamping is part of a sentiment from PB.

I'm so glad you dropped by today.  Be sure and leave a comment so I know you were here.


  1. These are fabulous! Loving that glass bead paste on your tag!

  2. Great save! The second part of your sentiment on the tag works to perfection! Love the look of that glass bead paste. Might have to give it a whirl. Sweet white tree. It really pops against the gray base (with its sweet sentiment) you've created. Love them both! Bev

  3. I like the script in the background Bobby, this is so pretty! Lovely little tag too!

  4. Good morning, Bobby! Guess what finally arrived? three days worth of blogger comments, posts by email, and a partridge in a pear tree! thanks for your hand-holding yesterday!
    The best is getting to see this gorgeous tree you so kindly shared with me on Monday! The tone-on-tone stamping is fantastic, my friend.
    That PTI tag - still a favorite, and your quick fix was just what Doc Loll ordered!
    and beautiful to boot...

  5. Wonderful take on the inspiration photo, Bobby! I love the script background!

  6. Gorgeous your beautiful Christmas tree!

  7. Yum ... grey and white, Bobby ... so cool! Love how the style of the sentiment-stamped background mimics the embossed stitched detailing on that fabulous tree! Great save on your shimmery, glisteny tag ... it's gorgeous and touchable ... and I do love that delicious scalloped shape! Hugs, Anita :)
