Today I'm joined by my friend, and fellow team mate at HLS, Hazel (My Card Attic).  Hazel is so talented.  I'm always in awe of her gorgeous cards and tags ... her designs speak to me. :)  Drop by Hazel's blog to find out the full details on how she made the beautiful tag below.

LOVE the soft colours and bokeh design of your background, Hazel.  And I love all the special touches you've added with the glitter snowflakes, stenciled stars, and black accents --- GORGEOUS!  Thank you! xx

I'm also joined today by Susan (Cardmaker's Garret).  Susan is a CAS girl at heart, but is experimenting more and more with mixed media.  We live fairly close, so we get together to exchange ideas, share products that we've bought and what we've learned using them, and we demonstrate favourite techniques.  It's been a lot of fun and I have learned a lot from Susan.  Check out her blog to get all the details on how she made her beautiful tag below.

LOVE your design Susan ... and love all the sparkle and shine from the gold.
So pretty!!  Thank you! xx

Loll, I think this is my favourite of your tags so far! Love the embossing paste and powder background - perfect to set the gorgeous sparkly poinsettia on! And I was so excited to see my tag on today's post - thank you so much for inviting me to be a Guest Designer and for writing such nice things!

What a beautiful stencil, Loll! I love that sparkle an gold and the gorgeous poinsettia! LOL, you have me addicted to these tags. Even after having a room of stamper today, I had to make a tag when they left!

Nancy Stislow said...

Loll, of all the gorgeous tags you created, this is my favorite! It's SO elegant and that poinsettia is so beautifully formed and just exquisite! Love the color of Hazel's tag with the Dymo labels! Cool idea and Susan's is just fantastic. Love her background. What a fantastic collection this year!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I always think the same thing each day, Lolly - and may have said it in my comments - and that's, "Mmmmm!" That's how I react to such amazing texture and dimension. Neither comes easily to me so I'm all about oohs and aahs when I see it done brilliantly like you and your GDs have done today!! Hugs, Dolly

My Paper Epiphany said...

I agree with Darnell - I think YUM! I just love the texture, but do struggle! # more beautiful tags today!
Wonderful contrasting colours and the bokeh is fab as is the combination of green and gold!

Mac Mable said...

Love the stenciling and embossing powder heated for your background and the pop of red in the poinsettia is gorgeous. Fabulous inspiration again from your guest designers too...so enjoying this tag extravaganza of yours x

Karen B said...

Love your tag Loll, the texture is amazing with the embossing paste and then the embossing powder - not a method I've tried but rest assured I will be soon!!! Love seeing the entries increase every day - great inspiration.

Hugs.
