Hello once again. There is a new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge, and as I’ve got quite a Christmas card stash going on from creating all year, I turned my thoughts to tags. As the challenge is anything goes Christmas – I created these penguin tags:
I was inspired to make these penguin tags after watching a YouTube video from Jamie Magrich and seeing what she did with the Stampin Up ‘Menagerie Mix-up‘ stamp and die set. I had a lot of fun making these little penguins.
I wanted to create a little scene behind them, so I stamped and die cut the Lawn Fawn ‘Over The Mountain’ scene – not colouring them in as I wanted the penguins to stand out.
I don’t make many tags, and struggle with such tiny projects – but I am having a go this year – seeing as how we can’t go out and do anything – I have more crafty time to experiment.
I added a variety of shabby ribbons from my stash – I have a lot of different colours of these shabby ribbons – loving the creases and colours in them, and some patterned paper from Clearly Besotted to mimic snow……I know it’s red – but artistic license at play here!
I hope you can come and join us with your ‘anything goes Christmas’ makes. I look forward to seeing you in our gallery.
