Good morning! I am super excited to be kicking off Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist series today with someone who started off as my biggest crafty idol! Four years ago when I discovered her online I never ever thought I’d ever be in a position to guest with her anywhere! And while she’s still my crafty idol I’m also honored to call her a friend, too! 🙂 So, I am absolutely thrilled to be the guest designer for the amazing Jennifer McGuire! Each day for the next 12 days there will be two designers sharing tags created on a similar theme, technique, color palette, etc. with the same company focus. Today’s technique is three-dimensional and our company focus is Hero Arts!! And amusingly enough, with all the paper-layering dies that Hero Arts creates…Jennifer and I both ended up making tags using other dies. 😉
So here’s what I created:
I’ve been on quite the pink and gold kick these days so I wanted to keep that up! I started by laying strips of Be Creative double-sided tape onto a piece of bristol smooth cardstock. I used varying widths of tape and different spacing. Next I blended distress inks in worn lipstick, picked raspberry, and candied apple across the paper to create an ombre pink to red look.
Then I die-cut the paper with the Hero Arts Snowflake Infinity dies three times. I carefully scored each snowflake in half and then peeled off the backing of the double-sided tape. I sprinkled Wow Sparkles premium glitter in truffle over the tape and burnished it in with a bone folder! Next I folded each snowflake in half and adhered them together to create a three-dimensional shape.
I die-cut the snowflake once more from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from the Hero Arts Christmas Christmas List Stamp and Cut set. I heat-embossed them with gold embossing powder and then adhered them to the pink and gold snowflake! I finished the tag with a little gold ribbon and now it’s ready to adorn a Christmas gift! 🙂
Make sure you head over to Jennifer’s blog to see what she’s created and then check out all the tags at the CLASSroom over the next 12 days!! 🙂 Many thanks to Ellen and Jennifer for inviting me to be part of such a fun event! And thanks to you for stopping by…have a wonderful weekend!!

Gorgeous tags! I love the strip of glitter and those colors are beautiful together.

This is lovely! I think it would be fun to also make several of them and attach them to the top of a present wrapped in kraft paper.

So pretty. I have found that using tape is the easiest best way to add glitter without it ending up everywhere.
