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

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

Under the MIstletoe

We had 2 trees taken down this past week & some mistletoe fell out of one of them leading me to want to make this simple, but hopefully sweet card.

Snowflakes & Sparkle

Oh the just have to trust me on this one.
Crystal Flurry Snowflake die by Cottage Cutz, sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day stamp set
I love snowflakes and I love glitter, but for the past couple of years I have stayed away from using my beloved glitters because the biggest majority of my cards have been going to OWH, and glitter is a big no-no.  This has been really hard for me, especially at Christmas time when I want everything to sparkle & shine, BUT I have resisted.  Well, something happened this past summer with a box of cards I sent in to OWH that was devastating to me & led me to completely fall off the wagon and go into a big sparkly downward spiral.   I broke out my precious glitters and have been putting it on just about everything I can get my hands on.  Since I collect snowflake dies but haven't been able to enjoy them in their full glory till now, (snowflakes need to glisten,) I have been cutting them out left and right & glittering up a storm!   MAJOR dilemma, my craft room is now (by OWH standards)  completely & hopelessly contaminated, meaning covered in glitter, and I don't know that I will ever be able to get it decontaminated again.....seriously.
