Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist - Day 11


Hi friends!  I'm so happy to be taking part again this year in Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist event.  Each day from December 1st - 12th, two designers are sharing tags created with a common theme in mind.  You have a chance to play along and link up a tag as well as comment to win prizes.


It's the penultimate day of the event, and I'm paired with my good buddy Elena Roussakis today.  We're both featuring tags using Neat & Tangled products and our theme is neutrals.  Here's a look at my tag:


It's a double-layered tag created using the Classic Tag 2 die.  I just wanted a little bit of texture and dimension for the back layer, so I cut a tag using white cardstock, and spread white texture paste through the Fa La La stencil.

The top layer was cut from a very light gray cardstock and I used the circle from the Card Front Designs die set to cut a window/opening in it.

Then I stamped, colored, and die cut that adorable fox couple from the Merry Kisses set along with the sprig of mistletoe.  I used Warm Gray Copics for the foxes. 


The sentiment is from the Scandinavian Prints Christmas set, and was stamped on one of the banners from the Scalloped Die set.

I thought the tag looked a little stark when I was arranging the pieces, so I used the stamp with all the tiny dots from Ellen Hutson's Abstract Paint Strokes set to stamp 'snow' at the top of the tag.

I finished things off with a green hole reinforcer (also from the Classic Tag 2 set) and a bit of twine.


Those foxes always make me smile!  I hope you like the tag, and that you'll play along!  As I mentioned there are prizes to be won.  For all the details, check out the introduction post at EH:  https://blog.ellenhutson.com/?p=1352.

  9. These foxes are so loving and look so FA LA LA LA Happy! I really like how you used the paste on the stencil (when I first saw it I could not tell how you did it-so thanks for divulging your secret!) I like the warm gray you used for them and how you make it look like it was snowing too! Super great!
