12 Tags of 2016 - January

Howdy Blogaroos,

Playing along with Sir Tim again this year. Let's hope I'll actually get 'round to posting them all this time. I think last year I managed 3 or 4 (though I made all of them!)

I LOVE, love, love, LOVE this month's tag. I adore the chalkboard technique, and have used it with the blueprint stamps several times already, and I'd been wanting to try embossing with foil tape for soooo long. Lucky for me, hubby had some stashed away, so now I could.

And this is how it turned out:


How cool is that? Apologies to all the males (and probably most of the females) in my life, but you'll probably all get something like this on your birthdays this year. Love it.

Love the tag. Just one problem. Now you have me thinking about doing another metal embossing project. Smile. They are fun to do.

I think that the males (and females) in your life should be delighted with a tag as cool as this on their presents. The embossed foil turned out so gorgeous and goes perfectly with the chalkboard style stamping...a really fab design :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Huge congrats on your Tim win! I read your profile, and have to laugh about your unhealthy obsession with paper...take a number! And I NEVER use it!
