(step 1): working on your craft sheet – apply snow cap paint dabber to edge of tag creating a dry brush effect around all edges.  let dry.

(step 2): apply lightest shade of red distress ink to the tags using an ink blending tool leaving an area in the upper left for our image later.  *i started with barn door.

(step 3): apply additional shades of reds for shadow.  *i used fired brick and aged mahogany.

(step 4): mist towel with water from mini mister.

(step 5): swipe the edges of the tag with a damp cloth to remove the distress ink and reveal the white dabber (the paint works as a resist).

(step 6): stamp santa with archival ink in the center of the tag.

(step 7): stamp holly on the edges of the tag with archival ink.

(step 8): apply peeled paint distress stickles to the holly leaves and fired brick to the berries.

(step 9): dry with a heat tool. *one of the great things about distress stickles is that you can dry with a heat tool.

(step 10): apply snow cap paint dabber to the craft sheet.

(step 11): rub finger in the paint.

(step 12): rub paint over the stamped image to highlight the beard and the top of the hat.

(step 13): dry with a heat tool.

(step 14): stamp merry christmas to bottom of tag with archival ink.

(step 15): highlight stamped image with a white opaque pen.

(step 16): die cut a piece of grungepaper using styled labels die.

(step 17): apply a thin layer of distress crackle paint to grunge.

(step 18): dry with a heat tool – this will only crackle a little since we've applied a thin layer.

(step 19): sand the edges with a sanding grip to expose the grungepaper.

*just be sure to sand the edges and not the entire surface.

(step 20): ink over the grunge with forest moss and vintage photo distress ink using ink blending tool.

(step 21): tear a strip of music paper from paper stash.

(step 22): ink edges of the paper with vintage photo distress ink using ink blending tool.

(step 23): adhere paper to the grunge with glossy accents.

(step 24): apply glossy accents to the back of the grunge.

(step 25): adhere the grunge to the center of the tag.

(step 26): cut the excess ends with your scissors.

(step 27): ink the edges with distress ink with ink blending tool.

(step 28): open the pack of numerals and take out the 2 and 5.

(step 29): to create a faux enameled numeral, paint the numeral with snow cap white paint dabber.

(step 30): IMMEDIATELY apply white UTEE over the wet paint. *it's important the paint is still wet for the powder to stick.

(step 31): press the UTEE down into the paint.

(step 32): heat emboss the numeral with a heat tool by holding it up high to begin with.

(step 33): as powder begins to melt on the numeral it will become bubbly, move heat tool closer.

(step 34): continue heating until the powder is completely smooth. *do not touch – the metal is very hot.

(step 35): once the numeral is completely cool, gently scrape excess powder from the edge with your finger.

(step 36): apply a small amount of black paint dabber around the edges and immediately rub the paint off of the numeral.

(step 37): once desired look is achieved, set aside to dry.  *how cool is this?  looks like vintage porcelain numbers!!!

(step 38): place numerals on center of grunge and pierce through holes with craft pick and secure with long fasteners.

(step 39): to create textured enamel metal flowers, begin by pressing the foliage piece on to a distress embossing ink pad.

(step 40): shake distress powder and apply powder over metal.  remove excess powder and replace into jar.

(step 41): heat emboss with a heat tool until the powder melts and darkens.  *do not touch – the metal is very hot.

(step 42): allow to cool and rub excess powder off metal foliage with your fingers.

(step 43): stack foliage pieces on to the tag and pierce in the center with a craft pick.

(step 44): secure to tag with a long fastener.

(step 45): ink trimmings with distress ink (*follow steps in the previous tags to do this).  attach bells to trimmings with a jump ring.

(step 46): apply zig glue pen to top of santa hat.

(step 47): while glue is wet, apply sparkly fluff and press to adhere.

(step 48): replace excess fluff and place back into the jar – now santa's hat is perfect!

*in the details: the texture on this tag provide such a nostalgic look with the crackle paint, sparkly fluff, UTEE and distress powders.  i like the vintage enamel numerals, and vintage colored metal foliage simply by using embossing powders.
