Day 6 Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends!

Loll is half way thru her Twelve Day Christmas Tag Event!

Six more days of inspiring tags from Loll and her Guest Designers.

But you have until the 24th to link your Christmas Tags!

Here is my Day 6 Holly Tag!

I love how my sweet holly tag turned out using a favorite SU retired 2 step stamping set..."Watercolor Winter".  I used it with a trendy technique...placing my die cut tag in my MISTI and arranging the solid leaves and berries stamp and coloring with Garden Green and Real Red markers then spritzing lightly with water and stamping.  

Next I arranged the lined stamp and stamped over the leaves and berries with Archival Jet Black ink.  I loved the watercolor effect.  I used the same steps for the stamped upper part of the tag.

I kept the tag in MISTI and arranged 2 sentiments from Penny Black "Holiday Snippets" stamp set and stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.  Added Real Red silk ribbon and white twine.  Done.

A pretty little tag for a tray of cookies:-)

Hope you get to play along in Loll's tag event.  A fun way to get your Christmas Tags done ahead!
So much awesome inspiration from Loll's and her Guest Designers daily Tags!

The guidelines for the challenge are that it must be a mixed media Christmas Tag (any style/any size), which includes stamping,  plus two mixed media elements (techniques or products).

Happy Holidays my friends...Hugs!

  1. Nancy, this is so clean and crisp- LOVE that, a style I struggle with. Those stamps are fantastic and love the look of the offset stamping!

  2. Love this sweet tag, Nancy! So fresh when the white, red and green. Great technique with watercolour spritz. The 2-step stamps are perfect for this! And I love how you've added a second branch of holly at the top that goes off the edge. Wonderful design! Thanks for joining my tag event! xx

  3. Super cute shape and tag design Nancy.
