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

Christmas Card Throwdown Guest Designer

Hello everyone!

During Christmas in July, I discovered a new-to-me challenge, the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! I love the idea of creating one Christmas card each week and hope to continue to play along throughout the year!

I’m honoured to be the Guest Designer for their current colour challenge; this month’s palette is orange, green and gold.

What an interesting combo for festive cards! I actually worked with a similar palette during Christmas in July. I liked the idea of having a green background again but I wanted to switch it up a bit this time….

So, I created a blended background using Spiced Marmalade and Carved Pumpkin distress inks and a Taylored Expressions oval stencil.  I splattered and then lifted some water droplets before using a Uniko stencil with some green Nuvo embellishment mousse – love the shimmer from this paste!

I added a gold Impression Obsession deer and a Memory Box sentiment to complete my card.

The Design Team have some amazing inspiration over on the challenge blog – you must check it out! Hope you can play along with the challenge – I can’t wait to see how this palette is used!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 4 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 4 was Uniko. I don’t have many Uniko products but when I made this tag for last year’s challenge, I put the Rustic Christmas set on my wish list and picked it up during the year! I knew I wanted to use the beautiful tree this year so for my tag, I drew from the inspiration tags created by Hannelie and Rahmat.

I stamped the tree using distress ink spritzed with water and added a couple of red birds by Memory Box. I fussy cut the tree and added it to a base that I had stamped using an older Hero Arts background stamp.

Christmas in July – Day 3

 

Hello everyone!

Here’s my card for Christmas in July Day 3 (Day 19 of the colouring challenge) using one of my very first Penny Black stamps! Isn’t that deer the cutest?!

I coloured him with my Twinkling H2Os this week and then created the background using a Uniko stencil with some distress ink covered with glitter paste.

Thanks for stopping by!
