Day 12 Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas 2021 Challenge

I made it to day twelve! I have a big mess and a lot of pain but it was so worth it for all the fun I had. what a nice cheery song to end the challenge; I had too many ideas floating around in my head and not enough time so I went with the lyrics, “I don’t know if there’ll be snow but have a cup of cheer.”

as an homage to designer Julie, I die cut her snow globe die from purple mirri paper and used another of the sweet mama elephant hot cocoa images, painted with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper. to finish off, I attached a doodlebug paper background, sponged with distress ink and a light purple seam binding. I had the perfect size gold peel off sticker for the sentiment.

I painted the mama elephant hot cocoa image with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper, fussy cut, added nuvo shimmer pen to the cream dollop and popped it on foam tape. a Studio Katia slider tag die was used for the tag and the sentiment and a lawn fawn small snowflake was die cut to embellish the mug; I finished off with some free ribbon from Ellen Hutson.

Have A Good Sleep

it’s world sleep day, “an annual, global call to action about the importance of healthy sleep.”

I don’t think these little guys have any sleep issues.

painted sloth bookmarks

I fussy cut the mama elephant sloth agenda characters, painted with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper. they were attached to green striped bases, cut with the mama elephant bookmark dies and stamped sentiments from the mama elephant good reads stamp set. the stack of books images is from the book worm set.

I’m playing along with these challenges:

Art Impressions Stamp Challenge #303 Itty Bitty
As You Like It Challenge Favourite Way To Cut Your Image (& Why) I like to fussy cut, but only if I use my arthritis-friendly tonic spring loaded scissors and because I can decide how much of a border I do or do not want to have.

Snow Bun Fun

this is the card that I made a set of eight for my daughter to send to her fellow animal lovers for the holidays.

I have to thank Keeway for this design; I loved her card but i made mine a bit smaller so i could just focus on bunnies. the sky was sponged and the bunnies were painted with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper, fussy cut and popped on foam tape.

December 2 – The Little Drummer Boy with Ardyth Percy-Robb. Ardyth’s tag is whimsical with a gingerbread playing the drum. nothing similar in my stash although I did create a whimsical tag for the phrase, ‘the ox and lamb kept time.’ this mama elephant lamb looked like he would enjoy a beat; plus, I attached a mini wobble to see him in action. I painted with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper and cut with coordinating dies. I used a sunny studio tag die that includes a die to add a border and the reinforcement; I thought the red glitter was festive.

Numbered Thank You

i needed a masculine thank you card for a number cruncher so i kept it clean and simple.
