For those of you who don’t know about Ellen Hutson’s Classroom, you are missing a great blog where so much creativity is offered and taught. Each year Ellen hosts her own version of 12 Tags and asks they have a feminine twist. I was inspired by Kittie Caracciolo on Day 3. There was something about the window that caught my eye. Initially when I created my card I left the window open with no backing, but I didn’t like the look so I created some “wallpaper” from Basic Grey’s “Aspen” collection to frame my pink window which I sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray. The deer is from Ellen’s Essentials and the trees are from Impression Obsessions. The date is a wood element from KaiserCraft I kindly received as a freebie from Simon Says Stamp in my last order that I sprayed with Tarnished Bronze Distress Spray. The snowflakes are embossed with white using the My Favorite Things “Christmas Ornaments”. The red ribbon is another Freebie, but from Ellen Hutson’s store. I just love the personalized cards she sends with each order. Thanks Ellen! The small Poinsettia die is Memory Box and the gold ribbon under the window is from Darice called Sparkle Tape in Yellow Amarillo. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my feminine tag!
Happy Saturday! I’ve finished the majority of my Christmas cards and now able to get back to some generalized crafting. Today I am using Operation Write Home’s Sketch 244 for the December Our Daily Bread challenge that calls for primary colors. Love cards are always needed at OWH so I used some Lilly Bee design paper and a Paper Smooches sentiment to make this card. The wood elements are Studio Calico and painted with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Flat Magical’s (non-shimmer). Each entry in the ODB challenge will help with shipping costs so please join us in this challenge.
