Marker POP challenge: Any Shape But A Rectangle

Hello everybody welcome back to Crafty Time 4U, crazy weekend over here if you ask me! But let's start the week with a new at the Marker POP blog, this time we are hosting a very exciting one, "Any Shape But A Rectangle" how fun is that? I have some inspiration for you using Mama Elephant stamps and dies.
I made this ornament-tags using the adorable "Reindeer games" stamp and die set by Mama Elephant, I used other elements that I'll list below. Let me show you and I will tell you all about it!

DSC_8242To cut the base of this round tag I used the large of the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Circle Tags" on white cardstock. Then I cut the Snow caped mountains by Mama Elephant and I inked the stitched tops. Then I cut a snow border using the Mama Elephant creative cuts "Landscape trio" to set the little deer. I inked the little snow border a little bit to give it some of dept. 

DSC_8253I stamped and colored all the images using Copic Marker, then I die cut them, using the "Reindeer games" Creative cuts coordinated dies. I set the scenes, and I adhered all the elements using foam adhesive and liquid glue. I also added some details to the deer using a white gel pen.
DSC_8222To finish the tags I die cut a the smallest bow out of red cardstock using a "Dienamics Beautiful Bows" by My Favorite Things," but you could used any bow you have handy or even ribbon. Then I thread some red and white bakers twine through the tag's holes. At this point, you can decide, if you want a tag, then stamp the words "to and from" in the back, or you could make an ornament out of it, by inserting the tag in the middle of one of those ornaments that come in two halves, these tags fit perfectly in the 70 mm. ornaments

I hope you got inspired to enter this challenge clic HERE, you'll have until the Friday November 13th to enter.
