We also have the 24 tags of Christmas, where each day leading up to Christmas Day we feature a different designer tag. Do pop over and take a look.
As always, we have the monthly Image Challenge, the monthly Christmas Image Challenge, the monthly Stamp Challenge, a Steampunk challenge and a Gothic Challenge on the blog, as well as 4 Facebook challenges.
We hope you can find some time to join in the fun.
The winner of the Customer challenge will get a $25 Gecko Galz Etsy Store voucher and the runner up a $12 voucher. There are plenty of free Gecko Galz images if you don't already own any. Each blog post has a free image to collect and, if you sign up for the monthly newsletter, there is the chance to claim a free collage set each month. Also if you make any purchase of $2 or more you receive a free image.
I made a couple of 3D Tags that double up as tree ornaments:
I used die cut ovals as the base, covered in gold card and placed an oval of paper from the Christmas Traditions ATC Collection as a background. I fussy cut the images and popped them on foam tape with inky foliage dies behind them. The winter sentiment is stamped and the edges inked with Candied Apple Distress Oxide. Gold tinsel was threaded through each to act as a tie.
I also made a selection of cards:
This is such a lovely image from a beautiful collage set called Nature's Winter
. I teamed it with paper from the Starburst ATC
set. Crystal glitter was added to the image and a little sprig of gold and white foliage along with a sparkly flower. The gold glitter snowflakes have a gem at their centre.
This cute snow bunny is also from Nature's Winter and again I used the Starburst ATC papers. I used the Facebook challenge card sketch (see the poster at the end of this post) turned on its side for the layout. I die cut the letters to spell Joy from gold card.
Here are a couple more tags:
And finally, this was my card for the customer challenge inspiration.
You can see more details here.
