Addicted to Stamps and More #367


Here's my Make Your Mark project...for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More
This challenge requires a card or scrapbook page or tag... using markers or colouring pencils or the like - making your mark...

I have made another page for the 'Snowman' side of my scrapbook.


This image is Twistoon's Snowmandaloony  Digital image coloured with Copics and cut out.




I then added a scatter of snowflake confetti.


 Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge! Do hop over to see the fabulous inspiration from my team-mates!

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 4

I came across this for the first time last year - and really enjoyed it  - and when it came to Christmas I had more than enough tags made!!

It is hosted by Tracey McNeely and you will find the main hop post here
She works really hard to organise this hop and secures many sponsors!

Last year I didn't get started until the 11th day - this year I made sure I got started on the first day!! Each day I will CASE or be inspired by at least one tag...!

OK - I'm already on catch up...
  
Here is my tag for Day 4!




I was inspired by Izzy Scrap on Day Four with this super tag!



Day Four showcases Uniko . I have used products from different companies to make my tag...


Recipe:
  1. I used a Tim Holtz tag die (Sizzix Stacked Tags) to cut a tag from watercolour paper that I had smooshed with Distress Inks.
  2. On this I used Stampin Up snowflake stamps, embossed in white.
  3. I then die cut Paper Smooches snowflakes in white card.
  4. Joy is a Tonic die.
  5. Finally I added the ribbon and gems.

I will link this to the main hop post

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 3 revisited

I came across this for the first time last year - and really enjoyed it  - and when it came to Christmas I had more than enough tags made!!

Last year I didn't get started until the 11th day - this year I made sure I got started on the first day!! Each day I will CASE or be inspired by at least one tag...!

OK - I'm already on catch up...

The thing is, with each post there is so much fabulous inspiration - it is hard to choose just one (or two).

  
So this is my second tag:



I was inspired by Joyce on Day Three with this super tag! I remember being inspired by lots of Joyce's tags last year...



Day Three showcases Newton's Nook and I certainly have some of their products on my wishlist now!!





Recipe:
  1. I used a Tim Holtz tag die (Sizzix Stacked Tags) to cut a tag from a watercolour paper that I had added smooshed Distress ink to.
  2. I stamped Santa in the sky - Inkadinkadoo stamp and black Versafine.
  3. But the houses - I used some unbranded dies with black card.
  4. Finally a length of twine...

Here is my tag...



I was inspired by Jennifer Jackson on Day Three with these shiny deer tags!




Day Three showcases Newton's Nook. I would have loved to have used a Newton's Nook product but I had to use another brand for this shiny deer...





Recipe:
  1. I used a Tim Holtz tag die (Sizzix Stacked Tags) to cut a tag from a checked paper from my stash. I liked the little red tag idea at the top so I designed something similar.
  2. I added a strip of red card across the bottom.
  3. I added the silver stag's head (die from The Works).
  4. I added the sentiment also die cut in silver (Craftstash die).
  5. I added the ribbon tied with twine.
