12th Tag of Christmas

Hello!  I am happy to say I have finished my final tag in Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.  Her challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I have had fun playing along as Linda is always inspiring in her beautiful artwork.  Week #12 tag had a pocket and some fun inserts. 

 I decided to go with my neutral colors again just because I love how they look.  I did layer my background following Linda's inspiration.

I took a jumbo tag and folded the bottom up.  I stamped the holly in the background and embossed with ivory embossing powder.  I then stamped a script across the background.  I mixed a variety of sprays over the backgrounds of all my pieces. 

The bottom flap got a layer of embossing paste spread over the surface.  I then laid the concerto stencil into the paste to create an imprint. 

To apply the sentiment I stamped it onto tissue paper with versamark and heat embossed with the ivory embossing paste.  I then used fast finish to collage it over the bottom.

Well I hope you are all staying warm. We are below zero right now with the wind chills. 



  1. Very pretty! Could hold a gift card, also, I think.

  2. Brilliantly put together Suzz, another wonderful creation xxx

  3. This last one is just as beautiful as all the others have been, love how you adapted Linda's original, the neutral colours are just beautiful!!

  4. Love the, Suzz! Your background is fantastic - especially how you used the Concerto stencil to stamp into your embossing paste. That made a terrific texture. And I love to see the Artistic Outpost stamps used to create the ephemera in the pocket. The whole thing is just beautifully done.

    So glad you played along with the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style again this year. I'm always thrilled to have you joining in.


  5. Yay! Congrats on making the finishing line, and with a wonderful gilded finale. I love this take on Linda's original. I'm almost there - done Tag 12, and all the rest are made... just got to photograph and write them up. I'll be back to check on the ones I've missed as I post my versions.
