TAGplorations Challenge – All About Winter – Non-Shaker Tea Kettle Tag – January 2

 I am happy to be here with you for STAMPlorations first tag challenge of 2018!

I hope you’ll join us for our fun tag challenge, TAGplorations.

Our Theme for this month is:
 
with an optional twist of Texture Paste

Here’s my non-shaker red tea kettle tag, using CUTplorations Tag O’Coffee & Let it Snow Dies.I love this little kettle! I have not used it before, but plan on using it again soon.

We’ve been having a very wintry winter here so far in Maine with 2 major snow events. We got 16″ (40.6 cm) of snow on Christmas Day and have been having daytime temperatures in the single digits Fahrenheit for over a week. Here I am (wearing the red coat), standing on a frozen lake, with my family on New Year’s Eve. We had lots of cold fun and then came in for a hot mug of chocolate.IMG_5499edited2

Lots of cups of tea and chocolate are surely in my future if this weather continues.

I added Glossy Accents to the red ink sponged tea kettle, blue Smooch Spritz to the blue sponged “Let it Snow” and sparkly snow. 

I’m happy to be part of this fun Tag challenge at STAMPlorations and hope that you will join in the fun.

Stencil Sunday – December 17, 2017 – O Come All Ye Faithful Tag

 Hi! I’m here with a quick post for today’s STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday.

I have a Clean and Simple Mixed Media Christmas tag to share with you.  I used the ARTplorations Floral Flutes stencil.

I die cut the tag twice, first in vellum and then in white card stock. Then I stenciled onto vellum and heat embossed the sentiment in gold.

I used CUTplorations Tags #1 Nesting Dies and STAMPlorations All Ye Faithful – Typografia Christmas. I love this sentiment stamp and the carol.

 

To me, Jesus is the most memorable gift that I have been given.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop over and check out my Design Teammates’ super creations!

Grace & Peace,
