High Hopes and 2 more tags

Hello everyone....

Well... I am terribly behind this week but
I have been fighting a nasty virus!!!
I think I am on the mend now.....
keeping my fingers crossed!!

It's meet the Diva's over at the
High Hopes Blog this week.

The featured Diva's are
"Anna and Jeanne"

So be sure to pop on over and check
out their bio's!!

I created an easel card candy box to share
with you this week. I just love this adorable
moose..."Hopeful Moose" he's an oldie but
goodie!! I also used the "Merry Kiss-Moose"

I created the box first and then made the
easel card to fit the top. I embossed the image
and sentiment with black and painted the
image with Tombows.

I hope you like it!!!


I only managed to get a couple more tags
from Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas finished...
but it is more than last year!!

I might be able to a few more done...
but with the days getting busier before
Christmas that probably won't happen!!
I will post them if I!!

Thanks so much for stopping by
have a fabulous day!!

12 Tags of Christmas

Hello everyone....

I have good intentions of playing along with
Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas this year.

I managed to get the first one wish
me luck on doing all 12!!

I didn't have some of the products needed so
I did some improvising for this tag.

I stamped the Peace with perfect medium and
embossed it with silver EP. I fussy cut it out
and then covered it with silver glitter. I adhered
a grunge board flourish to the bottom also embossed
with silverEP and covered it with silver glitter.

I needed some pine cones but I didn't have
the die cut for it so I had to resort to my
"pear punch". I punched out the pears from
vintage photo core'dinations that I lightly sanded.
A great tip that I learned today was to glue
the pine cone around a wooden toothpick.
I shaped the pears and one at a time glued them
around the toothpick until it looked full enough.
I used 11 pears for each pine cone.

I'm thinking they look a little like brown
roses more than pine cones but like I said...
I had to!!

This was a lot of fun to make!!

I was trying out my Rosette die last week
and thought it would make a great ornament!!

I wanted it to be 3D so I made 2 pieces and
adhered them together and running a chain
through the center and adding a Hanger clip
to the top to hang it on the tree.
I stamped the Noel onto 2 small pieces of metal
and adhered them together front and back
of the hanger.

This is the side view.

I was pleased with the way it turned out.
I hope you like it!!

Have a wonderful day
Thanks so much for stopping by....
