Hi there, Carolyn Peeler with you today to share my 12 tags of Christmas project with you. I love this yearly celebration and was excited to design my contribution. Before I could get started, I was tasked with finding an image that Angie and I could use as color inspiration for our tags. I spent some time browsing through Pinterest and was so inspired when I came across this image. I love how bright, light and shabby-chic this image is, while still being unapologetically Christmasy. The image is by Maria from the blog/shop Dreamy Whites. If you love shabby chic style, you MUST check out her blog and instagram feed - it's serious eye candy people!
So onto my tag. In an ode to my fellow designer today, Angie Backman from Concord & 9th, I combined an Essentials by Ellen Stamp, "Elf'd" with the "Stripe Builder" background stamp set by Concord & 9th. These two stamps really play well together and helped create a tag that is full-on Christmas! Check it out!
And, here's a video of the creation process:
And here's one last look - isn't that elf so stinkin' CUTE! I can hardly stand it!
As we close out the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist for 2016, please join me in thanking Ellen for creating such an amazing Christmas tradition. It has been a pleasure to log into the CLASSroom each morning to see what theme each duo of designers worked with and I think that you'll agree that we have been given some fantastic inspiration through their projects. And, thank YOU so much for joining us each day. Please be sure to play along and enter your tag for a chance to win one of the giveaways. (More info can be found here.)
We are pleased as punch to welcome Angie Backman, one of the co-owners of Concord & 9th, today! We just adore the stylish & fun designs by Concord & 9th and we think Angie, & co-founder Greg, are awesome!
For the color challenge today, Angie said: "I LOVED the color combo! It was fun to use it along with JOY to make something wintery vs traditional Christmas colors." She featured her "Joy" Stamp set and co-ordinating die to create a tag that is versatile enough that it could be used to decorate a either a Christmas or Winter themed gift.
