Hero Arts Poinsettia & Happy Holly Days

SURPRISE…I have another tag for you, BUT I did step out and make something different this time – you know, to go along with the theme ‘ANYTHING BUT A CARD‘! 😀 Yay me!

Have you joined our challenge this month; we’d love to see your creations, you can link them up HERE. And don’t forget, you can receive 15% off your order of $25+ at our Etsy shop; just use code: MicheleG15! And if there is something not available, they do special orders, just ask!

So let’s go with the non-tag creation first! I stamped the huge Poinsettia stamp (looks like it might be out of stock, but the dies are available, just ask for a special order if you’d like the stamp) on some artist grade translucent shrink plastic in Hero Arts Intense Black; I knew that wasn’t going to dry for quite some, if at all, so I added some Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder and hand cut the images after punching a hole in the shrink plastic. I used my heat gun to shrink the images and the embossing powder really made them sparkle. I wasn’t worried about them being perfectly flat, I like the dimension just as they are.

Once cool, I painted on some Lindy’s magicals – the colors are really a hot pink and lime green but I barely added any water so the colors are a bit stronger and nope, I didn’t worry that they weren’t perfect, just wanted to have fun! I tied on some small jingle bells and silver twine to finish them off; they will be a perfect touch to a few of our Christmas gifts! I tied one on to a gift for our son’s girlfriend, just a cute little touch!

And yes, I created ANOTHER Hero Arts Happy Holly Days tag, I can’t help it, I am seriously in love with these images! I had bought a small gift set from Bath & Body Works for my personal trainer and kept it simple by adding the tag as the finishing touch.
