Today is the final day of posting a tag to enter Ellen Hutson's Annual 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. My tag today is inspired by Kelly Alvariz of Lawn Fawn. Her tag presents a fierce Yeti in feminine holiday style. I don't have any stamp creatures close to an Abominable Snowman and this is very much a stretch for me. But I just had to give this tag a try since Kelly's gave me a big hug smile. Here is my tag with an alien snow angel. Thanks Kelly for the fun!

Ellen Hutson continues her annual 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. My tag today is inspired by Kittie Caracciolo designer for day 4. I have enjoyed her scenic stamping designs for several years. And now she creates dimensional works with die cuts.

Ellen Hutson is hosting another "12 Day of Tags with a Feminine Twist". It has become an annual favorite tradition of my holiday season. Daily for the first 12 days of December she provides very inspiring tags created by fabulous designers and then it is our turn to create and share our tags. This is Julie Ebersole's Day 2 Inspirational Tag: A newer holiday tradition for me is to be in line for Ellen's Black Friday sale which begins at midnight PST. This year I was ready and bought my goodies before dawn Friday morning...and then amazingly they arrived in Tuesday's mail. So my thoughts immediately went to breaking out my new dies...so a girl does what she has to do-LOL! Julie's tag featured a window with a mini scene with layers of dies cuts so it didn't take but a few split-seconds to be inspired! Here is the tag I created:

Here's a favorite technique to add glitter sparkle without glitter all over me and every little thing I come near. I use this technique with artsy layer backgrounds I create but it certainly can be used with any embossing you do. I personally didn’t worry too much the precision of the coverage since any extra white inks or glitter blend with my mottled background.

It has been a spell since I last posted but I found that retire life is a whole lot busier than working! And here I thought it was the other way around when I was working! Just recently Joan Petty my stamping pal from across the pond gave me a nudge to take a look at The Outlawz an active daily challenges site. So here is my first CAS challenge card to sing a happy note back to the many folks who sent me welcome notes.
