JnW Crafts "Thankful" Tag

With Christmas and an imminent move just around the corner, I find myself under pressure to be ready for the holidays NOW!  My crafting supplies will be packed for transport within the next couple of weeks and I am trying my best to work ahead.

My guest spot for JnW Crafts is coming to an end also, and I wanted to use one of my favorite templates before my time is up...the teddy bear.   The teddy bear is synonymous with the holidays...soft and fuzzy wearing a stocking cap and scarf, nestled among the presents, or the topic of a Christmas storybook.  I chose to put my teddy bear on a gift tag to be used on a very special gift.


Before I made the tag, I covered the acrylic bear with PVA Glue and Flower Soft then set it aside to dry. I adhered holiday patterned paper to the tag, created some additional layers, and inked all of the edges to give the tag a vintage look.  Next, I die-cut some pine branches and hot glued them at the top of the tag along with a couple of pine cones and red ribbon.  The teddy bear, with a red bow tied around his neck, is glued on top of the tag layers along with the sentiment, "Thankful for you this holiday season!"   A little red acrylic heart embellishment is the final touch.

I am super happy with the way this tag turned out.  It has the vintage look I was going for and lots of dimension and texture.

Craft-Dee BowZ/Diemond Dies "Thankful" Card

I'm back with yet another project using the awesome Diamond Dies from our Craft-Dee BowZ sponsor for the month of November.


"Thankful"

This card was created using  browns and golds, embossing and my awesome Diemond Dies Fall Leaves SetFern Leaf, and Pine Branch.  The fern and branch were a perfect accent for my stamped flower image.  I can't say enough about these wonderful Diemond Dies.  They release paper so easily with beautiful cut lines!

The double loop, organza bow was easy to make with my super, duper Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool.  It lives on my craft desk and travels with me wherever I am crafting!

The designers at Craft-Dee BowZ will be posting throughout the month, both on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and their personal blogs, using different Diemond Dies (some designers will be posting several times) to inspire you.  To be eligible to win the beautiful die set pictured in the post at the top of the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog, be sure to come back to THIS POST  in the blog and leave a comment.  Since there will be many projects posted in the blog throughout the month, for every comment you leave on that post, your name will be put in a pot, giving you more opportunities to win.  And don’t forget, give the designer some love on her blog too.

Don't miss the opportunity to win this Diemond Dies  Fancy Flower Set!


Thanks for stopping by to see my Diemond Die inspiration this week!
