2S4Y :: Rejoice tag + Extra Extra…Read All About It
Hey there, Bleeps! Today, I am sharing a Christmas tag with you featuring Starving Artistamps. I stamped the angel, colored her in and added some stickles to the wings to make them pop. I added it on to a tag, which I cut out on my own, stamped with polka dots and a music background. “Rejoice” is highlighted in the background off of a decorative frame.
- Cut cream cardstock into a tag by trimming a rectangle. Draw a line with a pencil about an inch or so from the top. Marking the center of the paper. Draw two diagonal lines from top tag center point until you reach the paper edge/pencil lines. Trim off triangle at diagonal lines and erase pencil lines or flip over.
- Stamp polka dot background and ink edges.
- Trim cream cardstock and stamp music background.
- Distress and ink edges.
- Stamp “rejoice” and add frame.
- Stamp angel, color, ink her up, and cut out.

- Punch circle at top of tag, add eyelet, tie ribbon.

Blog Break Alert
Until the end of the year, I am going to have irregular posts. I usually post every day of the week, but I am going to take a holiday break from the blog. I could pre-schedule posts, but that wouldn’t be a real break! Now, I am addicted to blogging, so don’t be surprised if you do see a post, just don’t hold me to it either! I’ll be traveling over the holidays and working on some projects, so this time will be great!
