Guest Designing for Twelve Tags of Christmas

I was so honored when Loll of Stamping with Loll, 
asked me to be a Guest Designer for her
Twelve Tags of Christmas Challenge.


It was a great excuse to order these tag dies that I'd had my eye on.


I really went for the shine!

Since Loll asked us to use mixed media on our tags,
I had an excuse to order this wonderful stencil too.

So I've stamped, heat embossed, stenciled, die cut, punched and then
 added bling for extra dimension and texture.

* For this event, Mixed Media is defined as stamps + ink, plus two other elements which add texture and/or dimension.

The inspiration tags by the designers will be showcased from the 4th-15th of November and the linky will remain open until the 22nd November so it gives you plenty of time to enter.

Here is a list of prizes! 

Winner - $40 gift certificate from STAMPlorations
Top Three - $20 gift certificate each from STAMPlorations
Random Draw - $20 gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers
Random Draw - One Christmas stamp set from Dee's Artsy Impressions
Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!
