Cool Bear Tag – 12 Tags of Christmas 2019 Challenge

Ellen Hutson is having her 12 Tags of Christmas 2019 Challenge again this year. I always love to see what her designers create. This year, the daily themes are inspired by Christmas Carols.

My tag was inspired by Day 7, Cool Yule with Heather Meeson . After I saw the title, “Cool Yule”, Baloo from the animated version of The Jungle Book was stuck in my head.

So, I colored the MFT sELFIE bear similar to Baloo. Who could be cooler? Shoobie doo bop!

Stenciled Snowflakes Tag and Card

I got a new snowflake stencil from Gina K. Designs last week, and I combined it with a GKD wreath maker template that had smaller snowflakes. After the stencil inks were dry, I stamped Hero Arts snowflakes in VersaMark and covered with good old Iridescent Ice embossing powder from Stampin’ Up. I finished with a sentiment and a few sequins.

Kissing Bears Card (featuring OLD mulberry paper!)

This image and sentiment were part of my Sunday morning scavenge.

I also unearthed a scrap of pale blue mulberry paper that must be 15 years old.

Here we are, the Friday before Thanksgiving, and I still have so much to do! (and WHY did my dryer pick this week to stop working???) I don’t think I will be blogging next week – I’ll be back the first Monday in December.

If you celebrate, have a great Thanksgiving.

No One Elf Gift Tag

How many gift tags do I have left from last year???  I will need to dig them out to count them!
