Funkie Junkie Christmas Tags Week 9

Published December 18, 2013 by isisimaginings

Hello, thanks for very kind comments on my last blog post. Tonight I have quickly made a card for week 9 of the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas challenge. Yes, I am behind, but only by three now & I am determined to have those three made & blogged by Sunday.

The BIG news is that Linda is extending the challenge into January, with two extra tags. So, if you think you can get fourteen tags made in the next few weeks, you’ll find the details about that HERE. The requirements for all tags are HERE. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring the challenge & there are prizes & a very generous discount on FJ products if you complete all fourteen.

For this card I was inspired by Linda’s background, the snowflake on the label & the heart. Her week 9 tag is HERE.

Funkie Junkie Wk 9

I used Faded Jeans & Brushed Pewter distress stains on the background card, swiping & dipping until I was happy. I applied a little Star Dust stickles to add some extra bling. I cut the snowflake from a heavyweight card, using a Memory Box die. I heat embossed it a few times with silver embossing powder. The final time I added some blue fran’tage EP, but that wasn’t very successful. The sentiment is a Chocolate Baroque stamp & the music score on the label is a Crafty Individuals stamp.

You can see the shimmer from the stickles here.


I thought long & hard about adding extra embellishments to the card, but I think I like it as it is. The snowflake is so detailed I think it should be the focal point.

Thanks for looking & thanks again to Linda for the inspiration, see you next time.

  • What a gorgeous snowflake die cut. Love the size, the beautiful embossing and the wonderful center you gave it. I agree, this needs nothing more. Sometimes simplicity can be powerful and I think that’s what you have achieved. Beautiful sentiment stamp too. Lovely take on Tag #9! And just to clarify, only 12 tags are needed to qualify as completing the challenge by January 8th. The extra two are a bonus.


    • Thank you for the lovely comment Linda, I’m pleased you like this one. Thanks also for correcting my mistake about the challenge. It occurred to me afterwards that I’d got it wrong, but I was too tired last night to check. I’ll make sure it’s correct in my next posts.

  • This is lovely & special – I love the way the Blue Frantage adds just a tiny hint of texture & is echoed by your netting under the bow. The silver of the bow picks up that of the snowflake beautifully too & I love that centre. Your brown music panel really gives a lovely backdrop to show off the silvers & blues. Nothing else needed on this – it would have been a bit cluttered I think. Your corner rounding is a super touch.
