Day 9...Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas

Day Nine..Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends.

You have until Nov 23rd to link your tags:-)

My Day Nine Tag!

I was inspired by Loll's Day 7 Tag.
Loll gave me this Gorgeous Die Cut Deer and Trees tag last Christmas:-)

Isn't Loll's Tag Stunning!

I changed the background and colored the deer with Zigs.

Loll die cut her deer scene with white paper and added a torn snowbank.

I added my die cut watercolored deer over the top of the Strathmore Mixed Media 
die cut deer family and tree scene and did not add a snow bank.  

For my background I used more of the SU Specialty Paper that I used on my 
Day 8 Peace on Earth Tag.

The dots on this sheet of the specialty paper reminded me of snowflakes 
even though they are a metallic copper color.

I stamped the Penny Black "Happy Holidays" sentiment on the smallest
Stitched Tag die and heat embossed in SU Copper EB powder.
Then attached small tag using SU White Twine to large tag. 
Next added SU mini dimensionals behind the small tag.

Then I added 20 year old SU white Organdy ribbon to the tag and Done!
I was pleased with how my bow turned out as I have not made a bow in ages...lol!

You still have until the 23rd to link your tags to Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas. 
Be sure and check out all the Stunning tags by Loll and her GD friends and
in the amazing gallery! Hugs and Happy Tag Creating!

Day Eight...Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas

Day Eight..Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends.

You have until Nov 23rd to link your tags:-)

My Day Eight Peace on Earth Tag!

I got this pretty metallic silver embossed SU Specialty paper a couple of years ago
free with their Sale-A-Bration sale.  The leaves are metallic grey and leaves gold.

It was a 12" x 12" package of 12 sheets..2 ea of 6 designs of silver and 
 copper metallic designs.  I wanted to make a card with DSP and
this beautiful paper popped out at me.  
It is not Christmas paper,  but with the added Nuvo Red Berry Crystal Drops,
SU Real Red Cardstock die cut CUTplorations sentiment (unavailable) and SU red retired ribbon,
I think it made a gorgeous Christmas tag!

I die cut the heavy designer paper with CUTplorations Stitched Tags Nesting Die and
attached another die cut stitched tag using SU Whisper White Thick CS.

A QCAS tag design,  with such beautiful shine and texture, 
which showed up in my photo:-)

Hope you get to play along in Loll's TTOC too:-)
Happy Holiday stamping my friends.  Hugs..

You have until Nov 23rd to link your tags:-)

My Day Six Tag!

I had so much fun with my new STAMPlorations New Release
The set includes the open lined coffee mug 
and 4 Fall and Winter designs to stamp inside mug.

I used MISTI to stamp the mug and heat emboss and then
stamped the poinsettia and snowflake image that fits beautifully
inside the mug and heat embossed using Versafine black pigment
ink and SU Clear EB powder.

Next I colored the image with Zig markers and SU Aqua Painter 
for a watercolor effect.  Fussy cut stamped and colored mug.

using Strathmore Mixed Media paper.

Then die cut CUTplorations Peace Love Joy Phrase Die and
attached with SU Fine Tip Glue Pen and weighted down with acrylic block.

and poinsettia and 2 snowflake sequins from stash.

Day Five...Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas

Day Five...Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends.

You have until Nov 23rd to link your tags:-)

I have 2 tags to share.  The Positive Die Cut Tag!

I love how this beautiful SSS Snowflake Block Die turned out!
My die was a gift from my special friend,  Loll:-)

I die cut the SU Whisper White Thick Cardstock tag using 2nd largest, 

Then die cut the snowflake die with the same CS.
Die cut a 2nd snowflake Die with SU Champagne Glitter Paper.

Then began popping out the open pieces of snowflake image,
next popping out glitter negative image and adding to positive image,
just like a jig saw puzzle.

I attached block die image using SU Fine Tip Glue Pen to
SU WW Thick CS to secure all pieces.

Popped up image with Foam Tape.
Added stamped PB Happy Holidays sentiment,  SU retired Ribbons and Done!

The Negative Tag.

I used the same products and techniques, but used the glitter paper 
for the positive snowflake images and the white cardstock for the negative images.

Added glitter paper to frame the sentiment.

I am so pleased with the result of each tag.  I liked the snowflakes blocks
so well I ended up making 2 Christmas cards too:-)

Hope you get to play along in Loll's fun tag event too.
Happy Holidays creating, my friends.  Hugs...

Day Three..Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas

Day Three--Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends.

Such a fun time of year to enter your tags for Loll's tag challenge.
You have until the Nov 23rd to link your tags:-)

Here is my Day 3 Tag..Enjoy

I found this green and yellow Alcohol Ink on Yupo in my stash.
It was perfect for a tree Christmas tag design.

I wanted to try the Alcohol Ink Lift technique with a TH Woodland Layering Tree Stencil.
I used a sponge dauber to lift the ink with TH Alcohol-Lift Ink.
Worked great!

I then stamped the text thru the stencil using Archival Jet Black ink and MISTI.
The text is from the SU "Evergrees" retired set.
Doodled around the border with Staedler waterproof marker.

Stamped my PB Holiday Snippets sentiments.  
Added a die cut layer of SU Whisper White Thick CS to add strength to the tag.
Then added a ribbon from my stash and Done!

Enjoy and do check out all the Gorgeous tags in Loll's Tag Challenge.
The Gallery is growing daily with amazing and creative tags.

Happy Holiday Tag Creating, my friends.  Hugs...
