Christmas Tags Day 2

Hello Delight friends and family!  Has this week flown by or what?!!
Just a quick post to share 3 more tags I've made for the Ladies Ministry Christmas Party. I try to make a little something for those that attend as a thank you for their continued prayer support for our church.
I am so grateful for their prayer support!!  It's not always easy being a pastor's wife but they sure make it a joy when I know they are praying for me!

I've entered this tag in the Try Stampin' on Tuesday - Tag-Stravaganza 

This stamp set is from Our Daily Bread Designs (Luke 2:11).  I stamped the poinsettia twice and popped it up after coloring it with Copics, then added Glossy Accents to the center of the flower.  Distress Inks Fired Brick and Vintage Photo were used around the tag, Memento Ink Northern Pine was used to stamp the Scripture verse.  The tag was also spritzed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to add a bit of shimmer but the photo doesn't show it, it really is a pretty finish to the simple tag.

The first tag with the large holly berries was stamped with Memento Northern Pine and Liquid Pearls were added to the little berries on the Merry Christmas (I've torn the edges and then distressed them with ink).  Sorry, can't remember the stamp set but it is a coordinating set.  The large berries were stamped with Distress Ink - Fired Brick, then Glossy Accents was added for dimension.  The second tag was covered with Designer Paper (from my Christmas stash) and the Jar and Topper is a stamp and Die set from Taylored Expressions, I paper pieced the mini tag and hand wrote "To" and "From".  The pleated ribbon is a technique I used and then I made a bow using my Bow Easy and positioned it on a button.  There are a few layers under the ribbon but  the pic just doesn't show the details very well.  The Holly Berries stamp in the jar are also from Taylored Expressions, the Merry Christmas stamp is a wood mounted stamp I've had for a few years. Both tags were embellished with Liquid Pearls.   (In my first Christmas Tag post, I shared the inks and stains I've used for the backgrounds of most of the tags and the ribbon at the top of each tag is seam binding that I've dyed)

That's it for me!  Thanks for visiting.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory.  No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
