Here is my project for the reveal.
I used the stamp set Autumn Berry Wreath,
making a tag.
I love giving a special tag with a gift for a friend or family member,
in hope they will keep it and treasure it.

For my tag I stamped the Autumn Berry Wreath 
but first using  an anti-static bag on my paper.
I embossed with Gold Fine detail embossing powder,
then began coloring the image with Copics.

Once completely colored,'I used Tonic Mini Scissors to fussy cut the image out.

Next I used a Darice Snowflake embossing folder,
die cut a tag with Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Tags
then used a Nuvo Glue Pen Medium tip to go over
each snowflake (you can do several at a time),
then sprinkled with Sparkling Snow glitter, and
repeated the process until all the snowflakes were done.
This is actually very easy to do and takes no time at all.
Once completely dry, I used my Glitter Brush to clean away all excess glitter.
Tip:  I use a scrap paper, folded in half to glitter over,
then use it as a funnel to put the glitter back in the bottle,
then just toss the glittery paper away!
Another quick glitter clean up tip is to use a Swifter cloth and
run it over your work area, it cleans up all the glitter!!
I just cut mine in half and use one at a time when needed.

I die cut a smaller version of the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Tag die,
then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and 
embossed with Apple Red embossing powder.
I achieved the perfect placement of the sentiment by using the new
Tim Holtz Stamp Platform (LOVE that thing)!!

A ribbon was added to the tag top.

Make sure and leave a comment on each and every designers blog
for YOUR chance to win the entire release!
Next on the hop is the very talented and lovely DONNA.
