12 Tags of Christmas - Week 3

The time is flying by - so don't get too far behind - Linda over at the Funkie Junkie Blog is already on week 3 of her challenge.    She has all the rules posted, as well as each week's tag for you to use as inspiration.  She's giving away some great prizes from her boutique, who is sponsoring the challenge, so gather up all your supplies and get started!

This week, I didn't really have any of the items she used in her tag, but that's half the fun.  It forces you to look through your 'collection' and see what you might be able to use instead.  I loved the holiday knit die cut that she used this week, and the gold colors again inspired me to search out what I had that I could use.  Woo Hoo - I had the Holiday Knit stencil.

I taped down the stencil over my red cardstock and used the mini blending tool to pounce embossing ink through the stencil.  I used my all-time favorite embossing powder from Judikins - Egyptian gold.  Don't you just love that sparkle?  The holly is Tim Holtz Holiday Greens sprayed with Meadow Color wash and Heirloom Gold.  My flowers - quite an addiction of mine, are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  They have the most amazing flowers in every color combination and style imaginable.  The reindeer is the mini reindeer mover and shaper from - who else - Tim Holtz.  The saying is die cut from a Tim Holtz paper stash.


  1. This is beautiful! I see you've just started blogging here again and love what you're doing! All of your cards are fabulous! Love that Egyptian gold by Judikins too! I used the same thing on mine. :) The floral arrangement and deer are so pretty on this one! TFS!

  2. This is wonderful - love the Holiday Knit no matter if it's the die, the texture fade or the stamp - all fantastic. You did a gorgeous job with the red and the wonderful Egyptian Gold EP! Gorgeous flower and embellishments tooQ Such a pretty card, sure to be treasured by the recipient!
