Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 23 was Penguin Palace. There was so much inspiration from the designers! I particularly loved Bobbi’s tags – all that texture!

For my tag, I created a base using my new Rustic Wilderness distress oxide and black soot oxide. I then applied Nuvo embellishment mousse using a Uniko stencil. Finally I added zillions of branches cut from a Poppystamps die and added a sentiment from a very old Hero Arts wood-mounted set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 7 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 7 was Uniko – they have some fabulous stamps and stencils and the inspiration tags were fabulous! I loved Lindsey L’s stencilled inspiration and used the same stencil, with a smaller colour palette for my tag.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant

Day 6 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 6 was Stamplorations. The inspiration tags were amazing and I was particularly drawn to the tag created by Shery Russ.

I don’t have many of their products, so I used an Impression Obsession tree die, Echo Park stencil and a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 5 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 5 was Ellen Hutson. I haven’t bought much from Ellen H in recent years, but when I saw the inspiration by Lindsey L I knew I had to pull out the Home & Hearth die set for my tag! I created my own stencil from post it notes to recreate the snow/paths and added a Neat & Tangled sentiment that I got in a set about 5 years ago!

Thanks for stopping by!

AAA Cards One Corner challenge with cosy twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using one corner of your card base only; our sponsor is Stamplorations. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘cosy’!

I decided to use one of my vast collection of Newton Nook stamps for this card – there are a couple of sets that would work really well, but I love this image of Newton in the laundry basket – he looks so cosy, I knew it would be perfect for the challenge. I used a stencil by Newton’s Nook to ground my image which I coloured with my Twinkling H2O paints and fussy cut. The sentiment is also by.. yep, Newton’s Nook!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, and one of my favourite cardmakers, Angie – go check out her blog, it’s so inspiring!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
