Another Tag and 2 Cards

My friend, Rosemary, has made a ton of incredible tags for The 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  Didn't plan to make any more, but she inspired me.  One of my favorites was by Angie on Day 11.  I love the unique tag shape, blue/green color combo, wreath & letter die cuts. 
My version is done with MFT dies & Lawn Fawn plaid paper.  The blue paper is from a printed paper pack I got years ago in a close-out & the silver glitter paper is Heidi Swapp.  The letters were brushed in Wink of Stella & covered with Crystal Laquer. 
I added a white shadow making them pop off the background.  Love the white/silver twine which matched great.  I'm also entering Stamplorations TAGplorations.

Next, here's the card I made with that tag. 
Gave me a chance to use my newest embossing folder, Lumberjack Days.  I "had" to have it after seeing it on Carol's blog.  Oregon is known for the timber industry & produces the most real Christmas trees in the US.  I'm entering CropStopMFT Sketch ChallengeSSS Monday & SSS Christmas Card Day.

My last card is a Valentine made for PTI CAWULizzie Jones made the card that inspired me on day one of the release.  I used PTI Rosie Posie original stamps & the step 2 stamps with Lovely Lady & Autumn Rose. 
The PTI love die was cut from the solid side of the printed paper & several times from white cardstock.  The roses & heart were brushed with Wink of Stella & the word was covered in Crystal Laquer. 
Finished off with  PPP stitched edge die & soft pink sequins.  This is really quite flat for mailing, but still has plenty of interest & dimension with the layers, I think.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies & SSS Wednesday.
Hugs To You Card 3
Hope you're enjoying the holiday season.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
