Happy Chanukah!

I've been itching to do some of the cool techniques featured in Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas feature on his blog, but couldn't because I didn't want to stain my hands with alcohol ink before my nephew's Bar Mitzvah last Saturday.

Anyways, I finally got around to doing the alcohol-ink-plaid-on-glossy-paper technique and was really happy with it.

Here it is!

The dreidl stamp is from Sparkle & Sprinkle, the swirl stamp is from Fancy Pants, and the Happy Chanukah sentiment is from Paper Trey inks. The ribbon and metallic floss are from my stash.

I added a piece of backing cardstock to the tag and sent it to the Sophomore as one of her Chanukah gifts. I do hope she doesn't peek inside and opens only one gift per day as per our family tradition!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Gorgeous tag Kathi! I still have to try this plaid technique.
    What a fabulous color combo you have here!

  2. What a fun tag! Love the plaid and the color combo!

  3. Kathi - your tag is amazing! The plaid colors are perfect and those swirls make my head spin they're so wonderful! Love it!

  4. I think this is great! the first thing I noticed was that your lines were not perfectly parallel, but then I saw how much cooler it looked that way - I think I will try that for my own stuff. All your stamps seem to go together, too.
