Christmas Wishes

I think I'm just about Christmas themed out....
but I have a tag/card today inspired by Loll (below) on Day 11 of her Twelve Tags of Christmas event...I'm too late to post but have enjoyed making lots of tags.
I am posting this tag to four challenges... Stamplorations Sketch and Theme November challenge - Stamps & Tags.  To Happy Little Stampers Christmas November challenge - Optional Twist -Tags, Happy Little Stampers Watercolour November challenge - Optional Twist -Tags, and lastly Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies November challenge.
First I die cut my tag shape and then used part of a Tim Holtz die to cut my diamond shapes. Next I created a panel using DOX in Antique Linen and Seedless Preserves and lots of water smooched on my plastic work sheet.  When it was dry I spritzed it with Perfect Pearls to give it that lovely sparkly finish.  I stamped my poinsettia flower in Frayed Burlap DOX on this panel and roughly cut out the image. I added a very small touch of DOX to add depth to the flower and leaves and used the rest of the smooched panel as background to my diamond cut outs. To finish I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed it in silver and added a bow - then framed the tag of a pink panel on white card. Thanks for taking a peek



  1. Hi Robyn, Love this tag. Sue

  2. What a beautiful Christmas card Robyn!! I love the monochromatic colour scheme of your design and the flower with the hint of colour is gorgeous. And I'm so jealous of your bow tying skills too. So glad you joined us this month at Happy Little Stampers!

  3. Don't you just love Tim's Oxide inks. Love your colour choice Robyn and of course a poinsettia. So so pretty. Thanks for sharing with us at HLS for our November Christmas Challenge.
