Day 5 Challenge: Theme-Frozen

Whew!  I made it!  This is my 12th and final tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 series at Ellen Hustson.  My tag was inpired by Brandi Kincaid's tag, which you can see here.



I used a tag from Lawn Fawn, and stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn too.  The bottom of the tag is made from clear acetate, colored with alcohol inks from Ranger.  The ice float is stamped vellum colored with Copic markers.  Finally, there are a few glittery snowflakes silently slipping down from the sky.  I hope you like it!

Day 8 Challenge: Watercolor Technique


My 3rd post for today for the 12 tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist Series 2016 at Ellen Hutson was inpspired by Carly Tee Minner.  You can see her tag here.  My tags use Distress Inks, stamps from Lawn Fawn, and Copic coloring. I couldn't stop at just one!
Tomorrow is the last day to link up your creations for the chance to win a great prize!  I hope to complete the last challenge tomorrow, so be sure to stop by, and see what I have to share with you!

Day 6 Challenge: Color

Today's second post for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 over at Ellen Hutson is another color challenge.  I have to be honest.  This is a difficult one for me, because it includes colors I hardly ever use:  purples and greys.
My tag was inspired by Lisa Adametz' tag, which you can see here.  I hope you like what I came up with!  I used Distress Inks and Simon Says Stamps, as well as one from Hero Arts.  The glitter on the star is Zing glitter embossing powder.


Day 9 Challenge: Color-White

Good Evening!  I am trying to complete all of the 12 days of Christmas with a Feminine Twist Series challenges, and today I have 3 posts with different tags!
 My tag was inspired by Sharon Harnist's tag, which you can see here.  I used a gold metallic tag that I die cut using a Paper Smooches die and DCWV foil paper.  The tree and deer dies are from Papertrey Ink, and I used Prismacolor Ultrafine glitter.

Day 10 Challenge: Color Palette

I'm having so much fun today!  This is my 3rd tag post today for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist series! The day 10 color palette is below.



My tag was inspired by Kryssi Ng's tag, which you can see here.  I chose to use the color palette, and be inspired by the little sprig of greenery and the "with Love" sentiment to create my tag in a similar theme.  You can't really see it in the photo, but I also added dots of Antique Lined Distress Stickles to my sprig of greenery.  

The stamps I used are from Papertrey Ink.  I think they are in a set called "Two Feet Deep"
am kind of laughing, because the majority of my tags seem to be almost masculine.  I have more men to give gifts to than women, so I guess that might be the reason! The whole family is currently adults, and I hope it will be a while before there are little children, as the kids are all quite young adults!




Day 12 Challenge: Color Palette

I have another tag for today's challenge in the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist series at Ellen Hutson.  I absolutely love this color palette!


I simply stamped two Tim Holtz stamps onto a light blue tag in my stash.  I then applied dots of Glossy Accents from Ranger, and dipped my tag into various colors of Distress Glitter.My tag was inspired by Angie Backman's tag, which you can see here.  Her lovely sprigs of evergreen reminded me of the tree in the color palette photo. I absolutely love this palette, and my bedroom is done in the same colors, with just a splash of yellow!  Here is my tag:

Day 11 Challenge: Country Theme

So, I am all out of order, but I have a tag to share today for 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist series. The day 11 challenge was a Country Christmas theme, and here is what I came up with:
My tag was inspired by KIttie Caracciolo's tag, which you can see here. Kittie's tag is done in greens and browns, with a pop of red, so I used that as my starting place.  She also linked to a bow-tying tutorial on her blog, so I decided to give that a try, and I think it turned out quite nicely!  I have had these stamps from Close to My Heart in my stash for years, but they don't get much use, so I knew what I wanted to do for  "Country Christmas". I colored the scene with Copic markers.  Aren't those bunny slippers sweet?  I couldn't resist giving them rosy little cheeks!  I added little pink "lights" to the tree, and then backed the tag with a sweet calico pattern of holly leaves, berries, and tiny snowflakes.
