Ellen Hutson… 12 Tags of Christmas

Ho, Ho HELLO! I’m thrilled to be participating as a guest designer for this year’s 12 Tags Of Christmas event over on the Ellen Hutson LLC Blog! Each day, one of the EH Design Team members has been paired with a guest (which today is MEEEE!) and I’m so happy to be sharing the stage today with the fabulous Lisa Spangler!!!

Each day the tags we create are inspired by a classic holiday carol or song. Can you guess what today’s is? That’s right ….


Lately I have become re-obsessed with my Gemini Foil Press and so the first thing I thought to use for my snowy-themed tags was the Essentials By Ellen Snowflake Hot Foil Stamp. I used the Essentials By Ellen Farmhouse Tags Dies as my base.

I created 4 tags using different coloured foils and embellished them using the Sweet Snowflakes Dies from My Favourite Things with glitter paper and white card finished off with some gemstones in the centres of the die cut snowflakes.

The foiled sentiments on each of the tags was created using the gorgeous Yana’s Christmas Sentiments Foil and Die set from Spellbinders.

The last of the tags I created uses the foil sheet negative space left from foiling with the Snowflake Hot Foil Stamp. For this I grabbed the Pinkfresh Studios Solid Foil Plate and foiled the tag so that the solid area foiled leaving the snowflake as the negative space. I love how there’s no more waste of the precious foil!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit! And thanks to Ellen and the team for letting me play along with these fantastic products.

All products I’ve used to create the tags can be found at the Ellen Hutson Store. (Affiliate links are used at no cost to you xxx)
