I'm delighted to be today's guest designer participating in the 12 Days of Christmas Tags with a Feminine Twist challenge, hosted by Ellen Hutson, LLC. For 12 days, an EH designer and a guest are sharing tags made using a specific theme. Today is Day 11, and I couldn't be happier to be sharing a couple of tags I designed with Impression Obsession product and today's theme of Country Christmas with long-time friend, Kittie Caracciolo!
Catch up with all the previous days shares at the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog -- you are sure to be inspired! And play in the challenge for your chance to win a $150 gift certificate from the Ellen Hutson shop! Wowza!
For my first tag, I die cut Layered Tree from Classic Cream and Caramel Apple card stock. Using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, I stamped the cream colored tree with the French Script stamp. I inked the edges of the die cuts with the same Distress Ink, and added spritzes of mica spray to add a bit of sparkle, and blur the ink of the script stamp impression.
I die cut the star from the Christmas Shaped Tags die set from gold glitter paper, and added it to the top of my tree with twine and a pretty red button. Finally, I die cut Patchwork Holly from the same card stock colors and adhered the holly leaves to the bow tied around the top of my wrapped gift.
I couldn't complete the Country Christmas theme without throwing in a chicken, so here is a bonus tag design for you!
To create my Chicken Snow Globe tag, I started by die cutting the Deer Snow Globe and one of the chickens from the Roosters and Chickens die set from blue card stock. The snow globe design actually features a deer in the center, so I snipped the deer from the die cut shape and adhered the blue card stock die cut shape to white glitter paper. I used sharp scissors to cut around the die cut to leave the white glitter paper as the back layer of the ta. Finally, I adhered the chicken in place with foam adhesive.
