i was inspired by the warm yellow lighting that both Sharon Harnist and Jean Manis, Day 11 designers, used so i painted a yellow glow around this indoor creature, a penny black mouse, and watercoloured with twinkling H2Os. i used a bright pink permanent marker to change the gold peel off sticker to pink and added some ribbon.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 9

this is my tag i created for day 9 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge and it’s another fun sketch; once again, i literally followed it.

6a00d83451614969e201bb08971080970d-320wi-2

i love both designers’ tag shapes, but i was inspired by Heather Campbell’s use of designer paper for the background.

i created the sky with distress inks, die cut the marianne design tree and the my favorite things die-namics snow drifts from white glitter paper and popped the tree on foam tape.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 10

i made up for lost time yesterday and created a tag for day 10 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge.

6a00d83451614969e201bb08971171970d-320wi

my tag is a literal interpretation of the sketch and was inspired by Kelly Alvarez’s tag; i like how she created a scene inside the circle so i did that too, but with a setting sun. i used lawn fawn dies and white glitter card stock for the trees and mini snowflakes and coloured with distress inks.

the sentiment is an inky antics stamp. thanks for popping by.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 7

i created this tag for Day 7 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge and look who the inspiration is for today.

6a00d83451614969e201b8d17cad56970c-320wi

i was inspired by julie ebersole’s watercoloured tag and miriam prantner’s santa’s scene she created so i put santa in a snow globe and watercoloured with twinkling H2Os; this image is actually three stampendous stamps from one set: santa, the snow globe and the sentiment.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 8

my RA symptoms are a bit exacerbated today, so i only got one tag made for day 8 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge and this one was really challenging.

6a00d83451614969e201bb08971156970d-320wi

i was inspired by day 8 designer jill foster and her cute penny black image, colour palette and all the dimension.

i watercoloured this adorable snowman (snow woman?) with twinkling H2Os in pink, yellow, orange, purple, blue, grey and some burgundy for the heirloom carrot nose. i embossed the kraft paper with a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and lightly applied white ink; the image was die cut with a my favorite things stitched circle die and popped on foam tape. pink and clear stickles were added and i coloured a gold peel off sticker sentiment with permanent markers to make it orange. to finish it off, i added two ribbons. this is going to my daughter because she loves silly snowmen too.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 6

i created this tag for day 6 of Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge and it was fun learning a new technique by Jennifer McGuire.

6a00d83451614969e201b7c7f2ef0a970b-320wi

i usually use stickles and don’t have a lot of loose glitter, but i do have a blue and a green ritz glitter and used both of them on this tag to alternate the colours.

i added two strips of scor pal tape, also covered with the blue glitter, rounded the corners and added my ribbons. thanks for popping by.

6a00d83451614969e201b7c7f2ef00970b-320wi

6a00d83451614969e201bb089710f9970d-320wi

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 3

it was a lot of fun creating this tag for day 3 the ellen hutson’s 12 Tag of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge.

6a00d83451614969e201bb089710e1970d-320wi

i was inspired by Laurel Beard’s stocking tag so i die cut the memory box stocking and free hand cut the toe and heel from glitter paper; the letters were also die cut from glitter paper using the memory box alphabet die.

i finished it off by quilting the stocking, popping it on foam tape and adding ribbons. thanks for popping by.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 2

i’m slowly creating tags for the ellen hutson’s 12 Tag of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge and i finally finished my tag for day 2.

6a00d83451614969e201bb089780aa970d

i was inspired by both designers’ tags for Day 2; i like the dimension Kittie Caracciolo achieved and Dina Kowal’s watercolouring. i used twinkling H2Os as usual to paint what i’m calling a christmas rose and all the leaves and i created the woodgrain pattern with pumice stone distress ink.

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Day 1

i love making tags so i’m playing along with ellen hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015 Challenge. last year was the first time i joined in and only managed to create a couple; i’m not sure how many i’ll get made this year, but it’s fun getting lost in the creative zone.

6a00d83451614969e201bb089780aa970d

i was inspired by both designers’ tags for Day 1; i liked the bright pink and trees Carolyn Peeler used and the larger die cut sentiment on Stephanie Wincott’s.

i created the background with distress ink, die cut everything with glitter paper, layered the snow drifts and trees and added some snow and ribbons. thanks for popping by.
