12 Tags of Christmas - Day 1

Merry Christmas! 
I can hardly believe that December is here. I am really excited about what I have to share with you today. As most of you know, Tim Holtz decided this year to not do the 12 Tags of Christmas anymore, but instead do a tag each month. I was so sad when I learned this because the 12 Tags have become just as much a holiday tradition as putting up the tree! So I decided to do my own 12 Tags this year! ...and I have had so much fun playing. 
So without further ado... 
Day 1! 

The Details:
I used Archival Black Ink to stamp my background. Then with Salty Ocean & Shaded Lilac Distress Ink, I inked up my tag. 

I then stamped using Perfect Medium and added Perfect Pearls.

This was the first time that I used Mirror Paper. It's awesome! I cut the snowman, the snowflake, & the snowflake border out of this awesome stuff! 

Using Alcohol Inks, I inked up the snowman. Here is a great video about Alcohol Inks

The snow is made from Stampendous Mica Fragments. I added some glitter for the snowman's hat and Tinsel for his scarf. 

I hope that you have been inspired to create a Christmas tag or two this season. Please come back tomorrow to see Day 2's tag... 


  1. Wow, Christine. This is beautiful. TFS

  2. Beautiful tag. I love those fragments...had to get quite a collection of them.

  3. Awesome!
    Congrats on your 12 Days of Tags!
