Welcome to 12 Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends ..... Day 11

Whoo hoo! .... hello again

Welcome to Day 11 of one of my favourite Blog events of the year.  Yes ......Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends is currently underway .......


When Loll invited me to be one of her Guest Designers again this year I immediately said Yes!
It's always a pleasure to be part of this fun event ....... and you all know how much I love making tags!


I'm loving Kraft card at the moment and I think it goes so well with white to give a real snowy look.


I cut my tag and heat embossed in white, some pretty snowflakes onto the background .....


and then added some texture paste through the Tim Holtz Speckles stencil .... I love using this to create the look of falling snow.  I sprinkled the texture paste with fine crystal glitter while the paste was still wet to add a touch of sparkle

White ink around the edges, applied with a stencil brush, finishes off the snowy sky.

I die cut some white card stock with the CUTplorations Stitched Snow Hills dies and layered the pieces onto the bottom of the tag, stamping and heat embossing the sentiment in gold


I finished off the tag by adding a beautiful die cut snowflake .... cut from white card and glitter card, layering them together to add dimension ...... isn't it pretty!  I think it's a Memory Box snowflake but I'm not sure ..... I haven't got the packaging!!


A simple white pearl in the middle adds the final touch.

I hope you're enjoying the Tag event as much as I am.  There's been some amazing tags created by Loll and her Guests over the last 10 days and it's not over yet.
There's still time to play along ....... just create a mixed media Christmas tag, any size, any style, which includes rubber stamping, plus two mixed media elements ..... that can be mixed media products or techniques.  Go on ...... join in the fun!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
I've been busy prepping a workshop today for the weekend ..... we're going to be playing around with Galaxy Backgrounds ....... it could be a messy one!

Cheerio until next time ........

  1. I had never thought about Kraft being a colour that is elegant. I do now after seeing your beautiful snowflake tag above, and the lovely winter scenes you made last year. This is so pretty with the embossing paste falling snow and that gorgeous large glitter snowflake. Amazing design, as always! Thanks so much for being a Guest Designer, my friend!! xx

  4. What a beautiful tag! Love the embossed stenciling with the extra white ink added for the background - great with the stamped and die cut snowflakes. I've pinned this as I want to CASE it for a card! Aren't we honoured to get to be Guest Designers for Loll's tag event? I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's creations.

  19. Your tag is so cute, Linda !! Paper crafting makes the white elements not very contrasting, but at the same time they are so beautifully highlighted. Coloration edges textural paste by stencil makes the whole becomes hazy. I love this dreamy effect. White snowflake with pearl looks stunning. Exceptional tag, Linda!
