Merry and Bright Tree Tag

The final challenge for day twelve at Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas is use a clear element.   I was inspired by Amy's tag today and how she used her clear acetate. I cut out a tree with my Silhouette Cameo3 and then backed it with clear acetate.  Next I mounted the tree on a tag with foam tape for added dimension.  For the final touch, I added a clear glitter glue on top of the clear acetate portions of the tree (so clear on clear).  I have enjoyed doing all 12 days of Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas so much.  This is an event I look forward to each year because making tags to add to packages or your Christmas cards is just plain FUN!  :)  I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and getting ready for jolly old St. Nick.  I have finished all my Christmas shopping and now need to wrap!  Then I need to get in the kitchen and get to baking and cooking.  So much to do but I'll get it done.....I do every year.  ;)  I'll be linking my festive tree tag up at:

Birch Tree Holiday Tags

Day eleven at Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas is a Neutral Color Challenge.  I was inspired by Miriam Prantner's tag with the grays.  I die cut a gray cardstock tag.and put stenciled music strips on it to resemble birch trees.  I had a new die of birds by Memory Box which were the perfect size for these tags.  I stamped the sentiment (Reverse Confetti) with red ink.  I'm linking these up at:

Elf Joy Tags

I have been having fun today getting my tags done for the final three days of Ellen Hutson's 12 Days of Tags.  For day ten, the challenge was to use non-traditional colors (no red and green together).  I was inspired by the pink in Brandi's tag and the turquoise in Julie's tag.  I used stamps and tag dies from Reverse Confetti on my tags.  Colored the images with Copics and then cut them out using my Scan N Cut2.  The alphabet stickers are by My Mind's Eye.  These feisty elves are going to link up at:

Feel The Joy Tag

It is a watercolor challenge for day ten at Ellen Hutson's 12 Days of Tags.  I managed to make this tag in between ironing three hours (yep, it had piled up) and fixing a breakfast casserole.  My bunch likes to have "breakfast" suppers and I do a mean Sausage, Biscuit and Gravy Casserole.  I stamped the image on watercolor paper with a black VersaFine ink pad.  I watercolored the image using Spectrum Noir Aqua Watercolor Markers.  I applied the color to a clear acrylic block and used a small artist brush with water.  I was inspired by Kelly Griglione and the way she layered her tags.

Sending Love At Christmas Tag

The challenge for day nine at Ellen's 12 Tags of Christmas is create a tag with floral elements.  I was inspired by Sharon Harnist and her beautiful tag.  I had fun getting caught up making my tags today for Ellen's 12 Days of Tags.   I'm linking this one up at:

Black and White Holiday Tags

I'm playing catch-up today for Ellen Hutson's 12 Days of Tags.  I didn't get to make tags yesterday as I finally got around to decorating our Christmas trees.  Yay!  Sometimes you have to do other things besides create in your craft room....wink.  :)  Today I woke up early to a cold and rainy day, got a cup of coffee and headed to my craft room.  Day seven's challenge was a black and white color scheme.  I was inspired by Lisa Spangler.  Once I got started making these tags, I couldn't stop!  Fun, fun, fun!

I even made 54 of the tag which says "no peeking."  Now all I need to do is start wrapping presents and use them!  :)  I'm going to link these tags up at:

Let It Snow Mugs Card

All good things come to an end and so this is my last card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I wanted to stay in my craft room today but my little voice (do you have one of those?) told me to "get to work."  Time to get trees decorated and rooms back in order (toting ornament boxes back to attic).  So I was good and listened to my little voice (but still would rather have been in my craft room drinking coffee and making coffee cards).  Thanks to Amy for putting together another FUN blog hop.  I've had a good time and hope you have enjoyed seeing all my caffeine fueled inspirations.  :)  Until next time........
