Hi everyone. Welcome to Day Seven of my "Twelve Tags of Christmas" Event. In case this is your first visit, I am posting twelve days of mixed media Christmas tags. And I have a special Guest Designer joining me each day. We hope our tags inspire you! Come join in the fun and link up your Mixed Media* Christmas tags below.
* 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 #7:
The tag (2 1/8" x 3 5/8") was sponged all over with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. Forest Moss Distress ink was sponged around the outside edges to add depth. Several pine sprigs (Watercolor Winter stamp from SU!) were stamped around the tag using second generation stamping (stamped off once onto scrap then stamped onto the tag). The ornaments are 5/8" circles cut from red glitter paper and covered with Glossy Accents for shine and dimension. A silver metallic pen was used to draw in the hangers for the ornaments. The sentiment was stamped at the bottom with Forest Moss ink. And finally, two strands of 1/4" Real Red ribbon was tied to the top of the tag.

Today's special Guest Designer is Bonnie (Stamping with Klass). The first time I saw Bonnie's cards was on SCS, which led me to her blog. She is on the Design Team for Merry Monday Challenges, and I was so inspired by Bonnie's beautiful Christmas cards, I entered the challenges and eventually joined the Merry Monday design team for six months. She makes gorgeous cards using lots of different techniques, and holds regular classes to teach others. Bonnie still works hard for the Merry Monday Challenge team, producing gorgeous Christmas cards every week throughout the year ... that takes dedication!! I hope you'll check out her fabulous blog, and spend some time perusing through her amazing creations. Details on how she made the beautiful tag below are also on her blog --- don't miss it!
Here's Bonnie's tag ....
