Hi everyone. Welcome to Day Eleven of my "Twelve Tags of Christmas" Event. We're getting down to the last few days of tags for this event. It has gone so quickly!! Each day of the event, I'm posting two mixed media Christmas tags (one made by me; one made by a friend). Each Guest Designer has a unique and creative style ... and I hope that our tags inspire you to show us your style! Come join in the fun and link up your Mixed Media* Christmas tags below.
For those of you that are interested, I have set up a Pinterest Board with the tags from this event. So fun to look at them all together!! Check it out HERE. If I've missed adding your tag, please let me know :)
* For this event, Mixed Media is defined as stamps + ink, plus two other elements which add texture and/or dimension.
Here's how I made Tag #11:
This tag (2 1/8" x 3 5/8") has a raised brick background made with a stencil and Sparkle Texture Effect (Martha Stewart) ... the bricks are very sparkly IRL. Several pine sprig die-cuts were "frosted" with the same sparkle texture and glued onto a circle frame. "Merry" was die-cut from red glitter paper and mounted on top of the wreath, and small red rhinestones were added for the berries. A simple banner with "christmas" was added to the bottom and a misted and scrunched ribbon was added to the top to finish.

Today's special Guest Designer is Vicki (All I Do is Stamp) ... perfect blog name for Vicki!! :) I first saw Vicki’s cards on SCS (yes, many of my friends are from there --- it’s a wonderful crafting community). I was drawn to her bold style with her mix of saturated colors and her keen eye to balance and design. She is so talented and also a very prolific crafter, making cards almost every day … and sometimes several cards a day. Vicki is currently on the design teams for the following companies: Inspired by Stamping, STAMPlorations, Add A Little Dazzle, Dare 2B Artsy, and A Walk Down Memory Lane. And she is on the Design Teams for the following challenges: Just Us Girls, Addicted to CAS, AAA Card, Cardabilities, Muse, The Male Room … and she is part of the team that organizes colour challenges at Splitcoast Stampers. Whew!! She is one busy lady!!
