Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist Challenge

Tags, Tags, Tags, everywhere you look are beautiful tags.  Ellen Hutson is hosting her annual 12 Tags of Christmas and sponsoring an inspiration challenge to go with it. 
Background airbrushed with Copics; dies include Small Deer and Fir Trees both by Impression Obsession, Tall Birch by Memory Box, and Stitched Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn, sentiment by Stampin' Up.  Accents added with Wink of Stella Clear Brush Tip pen, and Signo Uniball White.    


 My tag was inspired by this beauty by Sandy Allnock.   (To say I love her work would be a slight understatement.)

Gold & Platinum

"Festive Sparkle" paper pad by The Paper Studio, sentiment from the "Christmas" set by My Favorite Things

Saturday, December 6, 2014


word dies by Simon Says Stamp, scalloped circle die by Spellbinders, embossing folder by The Paper Studio, and glitter sticker purchased at Hobby Lobby

Just trying to use up some random stickers.  This looks really weird on screen, maybe because of all the reflection coming from the card, but it does look better in real life.

Ugly Sweaters

Stamps used: Simon Says Stamps "Ugly Sweater" and a Lawn Fawn set for tiny snowflake
Sentiment printed from computer
I have had a blast with this stamp set by SSS.  My craft desk has about 10 more little ugly sweaters colored, glittered, flocked & just waiting to be put on cards.  (These are pretty tame, but some of the others got really wild.)
I'm entering this in the SSS Wednesday Challenge -Christmas/Holidays
