12 Tags of Christmas 2015 - Week 9

We are rockin' and rollin' now.  Only 3 more weeks to go.  I loved, loved this weeks tag.  I am a long time coffee drinker, and the new die cuts by Tim Holtz have been so fun to use.  I definitely used them as my inspiration for this week, although, I pretty much copied her tag completely.  To see Linda's tag, hop on over to her Blog.  Her online shop, Funkie Junkie Boutique, is generously sponsoring this 12 week challenge, and offering amazing prizes as well.  I am having a blast creating each week as well as waiting with anticipation every Monday Morning to see what Linda has created to inspire us.  A BIG shout out of Thanks to Linda!

This card just looks like Christmas Cheer to me.  What better than to celebrate with a Peppermint Mocha.  I followed Linda's example almost completely.  I used the Tim Holtz holiday words stencil and texture paste to make the background.  Once it was dry, I sprayed it with Barn Door and Mowed Lawn Distress Stains.  I also rubbed Treasure Gold over the top for some sparkle.  I cut the mini fresh brewed dies from Coordinations Red cardstock which was sanded to expose some of the craft underneath.  I used some texture paste to simulate whipped cream.  The holly and saying are both from the Tim Holtz collection.


  1. Oh I love how you've used two tiny cups on this one, great design! The tinsel is so pretty and I agree about anxiously awaiting Monday mornings! :)

  4. Oh, I love the mini Fresh Brews - so adorable. Your background came out perfect! Terrific take on Tag #9! So glad you are continuing to forage ahead on these tags! Sorry I've taken so long to come around for a first hand look!
