12 Days of Christmas – Tag #5

Continuing with the 12 days of Christmas tag challenge!!!

12

 

Todays Challenge comes from Kelly Alvarez from Lawn Fawn.  Here is her tag.

 

 

Here is mine.   I really wanted to try to use glitter foam and saw that this card was the opportunity!  Considering that it was a video from Lawn Fawn that showed me a placecard using foam, I think it is appropriate.  For those who care, Walmart has a nice selection that is heck of a lot cheaper than Michaels.      I swore I had the stamp set from Lawn Fawn with the trees.  Maybe I do, but I could not find it.  So I used those Lovely Trees from Stampin Up! again!    At least I use it!   LOL

 

I made my little fox a girl by adding eyelashes!  Thanks for the idea Kelly!!!  You can barely see  the snow falling, I discovered that white pigment ink does not show up well on this light blue so I ended up adding stickles to make the snow.   I probably should have used embossing paste!

I wish I had that wonderful birch tree die, but I made do with a simple bare tree die.  I liked my final product.    I found that I had a die from Papertrey Ink of a sledder.  What a great find!!!   If I look thru my supplies, I am always surprised by what I have!!!!

12 Days of Christmas – Tag #3

December 11th, 2013 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Tag Challenge No Comments »

I really had fun with Day 3, this was out of my comfort zone but really liked what I created!

Todays inspiration is from Rhonda Palazzari

 

Ronda Palazzari Joyeux Noel Tag

And here is mine!!!!

I did not have gesso, so I used new Mod Podge with Glitter.  I did not have tissue paper so I used some white tissue paper with gold and silver dots on it from the christmas wrap.   I had fun cutting out burlap and painting it with Distress paint and then covering it with Gilitter Mod Podge.  I did not have a small cookie cutter or a wooden bird, so I used a glitter pick from Michaels and twisted it around the pinecone.    So basically I made do with what I had on stock and I really liked how it turned out!!!!  I dyed the ribbon with the distress paint so it matched perfectly!   It was a real treat to create this tag!!!!

!2 Days of Christmas Tag #2

December 11th, 2013 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Tag Challenge No Comments »

So day #2 took me a while….ugh….  I really really really liked Julie Ebersoles version and struggled to come up something that was similar and was a great Inspiration!!!!   Julie always amazes me on her creations!!!  So I was a little intimidated!!!

Here is Julie’s Inspiration!!!

Here is mine!!!

I had this awesome stamp with a tiny little santa and his reindeer and just had to use it!!!  Fortunately I had a die with a small village to cut to make the village.

But something sad happened!  I was washing the stamps and the tiny tiny stamp of the three stars was lost down the sink.  I am heartbroken.    Every time I look at the stamp set I will think of those stars washing down the drain!   Boo Hoo!!!!  Of course everything I make from now on will need tiny little stars and I will not have the stamp!!!  OK, enough of the crying and carrying on!!!

12 Days of Christmas Tag #1

December 11th, 2013 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Tag Challenge 1 Comment »

I love Ellen Hutson, I also love that she ships ASAP, and I love her Classroom where I learn new and exciting things.   This year she is doing the 12 Days of Christmas Tags with a feminine Touch!

The First Tag was from Jennifer McGuire

 

Final-1

 

She used embossing paste to create a dimension for the wreath.

I used silver embossing paste to create dimension of the tree using the Hero Arts Stencil.   Similar to Jennifer I used a distress pen to create the blue around the tree.  I wanted some extra sparkle so I used a nice silver thread from my embroidery collection.

 

Thanks Jennifer for the Inspiration!!!!!
