Tim Holtz Christmas Tag

Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist
Tag #8  Challenge :  use floral elements

I do believe that Tim Holtz is the best salesman in the universe.  I watch his FaceTime Live and he can convince me that I can't live without ALL of the products he is releasing.

This tag is made entirely of Tim Holtz products.  In fact, I think they are all from his holiday release.
Sheri Carroll gets credit for the composition of this tag.  Collage is beautiful when it's done right.

My clear element on this tag is acetate.  I stamped flourishes on it in white.

The angel is from my stash.

Tag #10 Challenge:  use non traditional colors (No red or green)

My granddaughter wanted a purple Christmas tree.  At the time she was the only grandchild.  So of course I got her a little 3' purple Christmas tree.
When this challenge said non-traditional colors I immediately thought of the purple Christmas tree.
All elements are from My Favorite Things.
Die ornament is from Spellbinders.

Neutral Snowman Tag

Day 11 Challenge:  Neutral colors

Wow!  This was a tough challenge!  Thank goodness green was approved as a neutral.
The cute snowman stamp and trees are from MFT.  The background stamp is from Hero Arts.
The snowflake dies are from Tim Holtz.

I somehow managed to not put sparkle on it to keep with the neutral feel.

Tag 6  Challenge:  Use Woodgrain
Inspiration from Amy Yang

This MFT stamp set was the first one I bought this holiday season.  There is a bird house in the set that will make a perfect New Home card for friends who have just moved.

I distressed the woodgrain cardstock with Distress Ink.
Birds are colored with Copics and slammed up with Stickles and Glossy Accents.

Paint splatters really made this tag feel wintery.
