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 CropStop, MFT Sketch Challenge, SSS Monday & SSS Christmas Card Day.
My last card is a Valentine made for PTI CAWU. Lizzie 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.
Hope you're enjoying the holiday season. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
