Day 26 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

Day 26 is a bonus day with A Jillian Vance Designs as sponsor. As usual, the designers had come up with some amazing inspiration and I was particularly taken by two tags using a deer head with glasses! So quirky! Now, unfortunately I don’t have any glasses dies, but I decided to create my own take on Rosemary Dennis’s tag.

I used an old Tim Holtz/Sizzix die that I have had for AGES, but rarely use nowadays as it’s one of those thick BIGZ dies and has been banished to the depths of a cupboard. So glad I came across it by chance on Saturday and that I can use it so quickly after!

I added glitter ornaments from my beloved Pretty Pink Posh Festive tree die set and adhered the whole image to a tag cut from Basic Grey. Ah, I still miss Basic Grey! Just as well I have a small mountain of it still!

I’ve loved this challenge even more this year! It’s been such fun stepping outside my comfort zone from time to time and using a variety of my festive supplies – old and new alike!

Thanks to Tracey and all the designers who made this such a fun event!

And thanks to you, of course, for stopping by!

Day 22 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 22 was Waffle Flower and the team had many colourful tags – such great inspiration. I decided to base my tag on Channin Pelletier’s fun tree tags.

I used my new Pretty Pink Posh Festive Tree dies again and got to work! I loved the soft aqua tree that Channin created and it looks like she either inked the edges in white or only coloured part of the tree. I reckon she did the former!

I actually coloured each layer of the tree using an Altenew Alcohol marker and then added a few Nuvo Jewel drops and a glitter star to complete my tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 12 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 12 was Pretty Prink Posh. I love this brand so much and have been able to add a lot more of their stamps to my crafty collection as I discovered Dies to Die For sell them here in the UK! I have just bought the new Layered Tree die and I couldn’t wait to use it for my take on the gorgeous tag by Caly Person.

The most time was spent choosing the green cardstock to use for each layer! Once cut, I lightly sponged some distress ink over each section before sticking them together. Finally I added a glittery star and some Nuvo Glitter Drops to complete my take!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Autumn owls

Hello everyone!

I’ve been wanting to ink up my Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Wreath stamps for a while now and today was the day!

I coloured the wreath with my Twinkling H2Os and then cut it with the coordinating die. I created a watermark-effect background by stamping some of the single images from the set onto my card base in Versamark ink.

I then cut a couple of the Poppystamps Whittle Owls and coloured them with distress oxide inks. To finish off the card, I added a die cut sentiment from Memory Box.

Thanks for stopping by!

Geranium blossoms

Hi everyone!

I’m so happy that Die to Die For here in the UK is stocking Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies as I love them!

Anyway, today I used the fabulous new Geranium flower stamps and coordinating dies. I coloured the images using my Zig Colour brush markers – I definitely need more practice with them but I enjoyed playing with them.

I stuck them to a base that I’d created by smooshing distress ink and thenadded a sentiment die’ also by Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by!
