Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas Day 7 - Cool Yule



It's Day one of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas event - this year we are using our favourite Christmas songs as inspiration. Be sure to go to the Ellen Hutson blog for all the details and daily inspiration from the Design Ambassadors!



Today's Christmas song inspiration is Cool Yule. I took it to mean 'cool' design, and created a rainbow wreath with the snowball die from the Snow Buds dies. I cut it once, then turned it and made sure that the two end snowball cuts were overlapped with the same two snowballs in the die, to create a circle. Then I used copics on the snowballs and inlaid them back in.

Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas Day 6 - Midnight Clear



It's Day 6 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas event - this year we are using our favourite Christmas songs as inspiration. Be sure to go to the Ellen Hutson blog for all the details and daily inspiration from the Design Ambassadors!



Today's Christmas song inspiration is It Came Upon a Midnight Clear. I knew I wanted to make a night sky with the new Altenew Metallic Watercolours (for a video showing how I made a similar card, click HERE.)




Modern Poinsettia


Good morning! Today I have a (almost) flat card that uses layered masking to create a multi-layered look.

I started by creating masks for the 3 Stitched Poinsettia dies from Pretty Pink Posh. I laid the negative mask for the largest poinsettia on a panel of white cardstock and then put the small one down in the centre of the open space, and finally the medium one over top of the small one (don't worry, there's a video!).

I blended Rouge ink through the stencil, and then removed the medium mask and blended Samba ink. Then I removed the smallest mask to reveal the white poinsettia underneath.

Then I used the postivie mask for the largest poinsettia, and ink blended some leaves around one side of the flower.

I used the sentiment from the Winter Wreath set and then backed the panel onto a gray card base.

I added Marigold jewels for my flower centre.

Here's a video:

It's Day 4 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas event - this year we are using our favourite Christmas songs as inspiration. Be sure to go to the Ellen Hutson blog for all the details and daily inspiration from the Design Ambassadors!



Today's Christmas song inspiration is Deck the Halls. I stamped and coloured some holly with Copic markers before coating the whole tag with Moonstone Glimmer Paste. Then I created a long top layer with my sentiment.

Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas Day 3 - I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus



It's Day 3 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas event - this year we are using our favourite Christmas songs as inspiration. Be sure to go to the Ellen Hutson blog for all the details and daily inspiration from the Design Ambassadors!



Today's Christmas song inspiration is I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

I focused on the mistletoe and kisses and I used a mistletoe die and the new metallic watercolours from Altenew over top of my Copic colouring.




I made the tag without checking whether the die was still carried at EH. So I've linked other mistletoe dies below so you can get a similar look if you wish.
