Day 3 – 6 Days of Christmas Tags 2022

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post. Unfortunately I only had time to make 6 tags this year.

Day 3’s inspiration is Day 14, 2012.

For my tag, I used a tag die by Marianne Designs plus a Sleigh die by My Favorite Things.

Bright Chinese Lanterns

Happy Sunday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of blue, orange, cream and kraft.

I’ve noticed that I have been using blue/aqua backgrounds a LOT recently so I was determined that my background would not be blue – instead I sponged some Antique Linen distress ink on my card base and lifted some ink using water droplets. Next, I cut my Poppystamps Chinese Lantern die from some kraft card and coloured the lanterns using distress oxide ink and Prismacolour pencils. I used the mason jar from the My Favorite Things Farmhouse Foundations die set to cut some blue patterned paper and adhered my die cuts to the card base. Finally I added a Hero Arts sentiment.

Mischievous Hello

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I just received the fun Tim Holtz Mischievous cat die set on Friday so I really wanted to use at least one of them this weekend! And I did for this card! I love the silhouette dies but decided to add some eyes and a nose from another cat die for this card.

I created the wall from an ink blended panel cut with a My Favorite Things background die. The sentiment is also by MFT

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 31

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 31 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge.

It should come as no surprise that I chose the middle row – die cutting AND a chance to use some of my patterned paper mountain? Yes please! I chose an older die by Lil Inker Designs, a few sheets of blue patterned paper and got to work! It’s quite weird that my card for Day 31 uses the same technique that I used  for Day 1! The sentiment is by Mame Elephant.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 16

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 16 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the CAS Colours and  Sketches challenge.

I embossed white card using a Crafter’s Companion folder and adhered it to my card base. I added a couple of snowflakes plus a sentiment My Favorite Things to complete my card.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 11

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 11 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Add Ink sketch challenge.

I embossed a white panel using a 3D holly embossing folder by Creative Expressions before adhering it to my card base. I then cut a section of brown paper from my patterned paper mountain but decided that it needed a little something more so I stamped a My Favorite Things background stamp using versamark ink – I’m pleased with how this turned out, a subtle bit of interest.

I coloured the Memory Box Holly Branch die cut with distress ink before adding a My Favorite Things sentiment to complete my card.
