I have been making some holiday tags and a few Christmas cards (I need to make a lot more Christmas cards!!!).
I made this card for the Outlawz Paper A La Mode Challenge. This week's challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and I used their Sweet as Holiday Pie image. That pie was an adventure!!! I messed up the coloring and then sponged it and messed that up so I covered it all in Stickles and it seemed to work! You still have all week long to play in the Christmas Themed Paper A La Mode Challenge if you want to join us and have the chance to win one of the awesome Sassy Studio Designs images (I love them).
Have you checked out Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas Event? I have totally loved all the great mixed media tags everyone has been making! I decided to play a bit too. I made these two simple tags:
I took some corrugated cardboard and peeled off a layer. I then painted it with some white acrylic paint (which I also dabbed on the SU! Wooden snowflakes too). Then I stamped the DRS Designs Small Merry Christmas Greeting and made it into a small banner. I added a little Stickles to the buttons on the left tage and some to the actual tag on the right. Fun!
The tags were so fun, that I made a Thanksgiving Tag as well and then put it on a card:
I used the new DRS Designs Cattail Milk Pail image and fussy cut it after coloring it up. I took some different corrugated cardboard (I collect all kinds of boxes- lol) and I painted it lightly with the brush leftover from my Christmas tags. After the paint dried, I sponged on some TH Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the edges. I then added some Bronze Gilding Wax to a bit of the edges and to the cattails along with some brown glitter pen. Then I added a bit of white gel pen to highlight the leaves and the pail and added a piece of the DRS Designs Grateful Heart Thanksgiving Greeting as the sentiment. Nestled the whole thing in some glitter straw and matted it. I love tags!!!
Hope your weekend was wonderful and your week is going well. I have had that horrible cold/sinus infection going around and it has really slowed me down. I am on the back side of it and I am certainly glad of that!
