Christmas Tags/Poinsettia Flowers

I have been playing with the Spell Binder Poinsettia flower dies - and I decided to put some on a tag for the gifts the boys are taking to their teachers. I decided against cards. I really like how these tags turned out. I probably could give more info - but the pain meds are kicking in and I am not thinking too well. Beyond my normal "not thinking well" sort of day.  If you have any questions -- ask and I will let you know!
 The tags are done with a stamp from CTMH and it has white embossing powder. Then I used TH distress inks to color the tag. I just used the pad and wiped the ink on. Then I used a spritzer bottle of water with the pearl shade of the Perfect Pearls in it.
 This is a mauve irredecent paper that shimmers (the flower) I added Stickles in rock candy and it just didn't have the shimmer I wanted. So, while the stickles was still wet, I dumped some SU glitter on it -- and this is how it came out. The picture really doesn't do justice, I am so excited how it turned out!! This is for our "lady" teacher.

 This one is quite plain - but still very pretty. Braden has a male teacher this year, so I was trying to be festive and classic with it. No glitter, frills -- just simple. The center of the flower is a Martha Stewart sticker dot - it has a frosted sort of finish. I LOVE THESE!!

These are done on the Ranger tags. They are bigger - I think #8? I don't remember and I can't find the packaging!

These are 2 extra flowers. The silver/mauve one has lavender centers and the red one is out of SU cardstock and then I added the rock candy stickles -- and still wasn't what I wanted. I wanted to play with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam glaze and this color is the Twinkle Toes shade. It has a gold glimmer to it. REALLY REALLY cool!!  By the time I was done shaping this one - the finish reminds me of leather. Weird, huh?
 Leave me notes-- ask questions -- what ever - thanks for stopping by!
