Penguin Tags

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.

CAS Christmas Cheer

Hello there. I have a CAS card to share today utilising some new goodies. Here is my card:

Using the colours for the current challenge at Color Throwdown, I first stamped the Stampin Up trees using Concord & 9th inks cubes, then die cut them with the matching stitched triangle dies – also from Stampin Up.

As these trees had a pattern, I die-cut the Tim Holtz deer – a new die set just released – out of dotty paper from Clearly Besotted. I die cut all the deer, but these are the two I chose for this card. The rest I put back into the packet of dies for future uese.

I placed them on the card, then decided I wanted to created a hillside, so as this card measures 7 x 5 inches – my go-to card size – I find the slimline dies more than adequately cut the length. I used the Lawn Fawn die set, decided which part of the hillside I wanted, then stuck down as you see here.

I didn’t stick the deer down fully, as well as the feet and legs being quite thin and narrow – I like to leave them and the antlers unstuck. I think it creates some movement on the card.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
