Heat embossed the image with white WOW high definition embossing powder and then sprayed with some Heidi Swapp Shimmer Mist in Seafoam.  Added the sentiment which was stamped on vellum and heat embossed with white ep.  The twill ribbon was misted with the same Seafoam shimmer spray and looks much darker in the photo than in real life.

Thanks for visiting!

The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 8

On to Day 8 of the Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist at The CLASSroom.  Watercolor is the theme of the day with some beautiful inspiration from

Carly Tee Minner & Kelly Marie Alvarez!


Inked the leafy branch stamp with Distress Ink in Forest Moss and misted with water.  Stamped onto some Bristol and used a clearWink of Stella pen to blend out the color, then highlighted with a green Wink of Stella pen.  Added the little berries with a Sakura dimensional gel pen.  Stamped the sentiment, cut it out and placed on the tag.  Finished off with some Tim Holtz tinsel, some twine and a little silver bell.

Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 7

On to day 7 of The Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist at The Classroom.  It's a sketch with inspiration from Heather Campbell and Melania Deasy.



Metallic washi tape was used to make the stripes on the background.  Lined up the sentiment with my MISTI and stamped in Memento Nautical Blue on the aqua tag.  Stamped, cut out and colored the little reindeer and added some Stickles to the nose.  It seemed to need a little something, so I added the green squiggle for a wreath in lime green.  Added a red Raindrop circle to the tag topper and finished off with a aqua baker's twine bow.

Thanks for checking it out!

The Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 6

It's Day 6 of the Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist at The Classroom.  There is some beautiful inspiration by  Lisa Adametz and Jill Foster.


Using some dies from Reverse Confetti cut the tag from some metallic purple cardstock and the dotted cover plate from some darker purple.  Die cut the squiggle (wreath) from some metallic silver.  Punched out the little branches in purple and white and covered with Stickles.  Stamped the sentiment on some gray with Memento Elderberry ink.  Added a couple of Raindrops dots and open circle and tied on some silver twine.

I can't wait to see what they have for us tomorrow!

I also made a card for the sketch challenge at Reverse Confetti playing with a new die and cardstock from them.


My new sand dollar die is front and center die cut from ivory cardstock, sponged the edges and the center with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and added a kraft circle behind it.. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 4

Day 4 of The Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist at Ellen Hutson's The Classroom.  It's a Technique challenge - felt with wonderful inspiration from Jennifer McGuire and Clare Prezzia!


I really thought I was going to have to sit this one out, but it is a challenge after all!  Die cut the tag and sprayed with coral and yellow shimmer mist and when dry, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Sepia.  Adhered some brown felt to some cardstock with an adhesive sheet and die cut the Tim Holtz deer.  Added a little black to it's hooves with a Touch Twin marker.  Added some Tim Holtz tinsel in a light green and die cut the little red bow which has some red Wink of Stella on it.  Die cut the big star from some white glitter cardstock and put it all together.

Thanks for visiting!
