12 Tags of Christmas - Tag#8- Reindeer Tag

We hope you are enjoying our version of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Chsistmas.  Sherry has been working hard to bring you these super-cute creations.  Here is one of my favorites!

12 Tags #8
Reindeer Tag

Product needed to complete this tag:

Tag: 3 1/8x6 ¼
Archival Ink/Sepia (Ranger)
Distress Ink Pad (Gathered Twigs/Tim Holtz)
Mr. Huey spray ink (Blizzard)
Reindeer/25 Mini Mover & Shapers Die Cut (Sizzix for Tim Holtz)
Wood Veneer Star (Studio Calico)
Adage Tickets (Wish)/Tim Holtz
Die-Namics Die/Let it Snowflake
Natural Twine (Hemtique)
Blending Tool (Inkssentials)


Choose two or three pink distress inks.
Stamp pads directly on craft mat, do not overlap the pads, stamp a little away from each other.
Spritz with a mister filled with water the inked area just enough to completely moisten.
With the water spritzer lightly cover the tag.
Drudge your tag through the ink covered craft sheet, keep swirling and moving the tag through the
ink until the tag is full of ink. (Your tag will curl at this point, heat dry or air dry till the tag flattens out.)

Die cut a mini reindeer using music print patterned paper, a number 2 and 5 using hot pink cardstock.
Distress with a brown ink pad and blending tool.
When dry stamp a wood grain background over the pink tag using a brown archival ink pad.
Spray with a white or iridescent ink spray.
Heat dry or let air dry.

Cut a section of patterned paper from the Merry & Bright/Tinseled Tree collection (Carta Bella) cutting just below the presents and at the top just above the banner, cut another piece using the reverse side of the
paper about the same width and height.
Cut the top part of the tree/presents paper close to the banner, scalloping the top edge.
Distress both pieces using a brown distress ink and a blending tool.
On the reverse side of the patterned (turk/dot) stamp a title in the upper right side using a small stamp.
Cut a section of the new Tim Holtz Frosted Paper the size of the turk/dot paper.
Adhere the 25 to the left side of the paper and place the film over the whole section.

Die cut a small snowflake using white cardstock and distress with brown distress ink and a blending tool.
Stamp a ticket with Wish in the center or use a ready made ticket.
Pick a tiny veneer star and a mini paperclip.
Cut a thick section of twine and pull it through the top of the tag.
Cut a thin section of twine and knot it around the deer’s neck and adhere the star using glossy accents.
Paperclip the wish ticket to the tag and adhere the snowflake about the ticker
