Rox used a Tim Holtz Sizzix Vintage Sled, coloured with Distress Inks and added some elements in Gold Metallic Card. She layered the sled onto a background created using a Woodgrain Texture Fade Embossing Folder and added some Christmas Ephemera pieces and stitched the border to finish. 

Andrea made a tag using Simon’s Label Tags dies, Clean Line Christmas Stamp Set, Circle Loops Dies, Mini Stars Party Die, and Falling Snow Stencil.

Anna-Karin made a tag with trees die cut from Simon Says Stamp Vellum and Glitter Cardstock. The trees were made with Simon Says Stamp Party Hat and Fir Branches dies. Tim Holtz Metallic Droplets are perfect baubles.

Barbara loves so much to use dies of every kind! She created two Christmas tags using Olive Leaves by Simon Says Stamp and Big Tidings by Sizzix for Tim Holtz. In the background she used Stampers Anonymous Stencil Twinkle together with Ranger Ink Embossing Powder Vintage Pearl.

Cheiron finally managed to use her Simon Says Stamp Wonky Tree-O dies. She painted some Dina Wakley Gloss Spray onto tissue paper and adhered it to cardstock using Distress Collage Medium. She cut them out and then added some doodling with Posca and Moonlight pens and added sentiments from the CZ Design Christmas Typewriter stamps.

Emma is getting ready for Santa’s arrival and she made a vintage style Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag using the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp Fretwork Snowflake to create the background which she then painted with Rustic Wilderness Distress Paint. To complete the tag she used Tim Holtz Christmas Ephemera, Festive Marquee and Holiday Bells.

Kath decorated a gift bag using Simon Says Stamp Willow Snowflake, created shimmery texture on the background with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Pine Branches 3D Texture Fade and Sterling Foundry Wax, added Walter and his Mrs, the DieCember exclusive surprise from Tim Holtz and Simon Says Stamp, Hero Arts Holiday Message Strip Rub-Ons and Trinity Stamps Candy Apple Heart Sprinkles to send warm wishes to the recipient.

Macarena made a pinky sweet shaker card using Simon Says Stamp Nested Domed Arches dies for the window and Etched Laurel Leaves with Outline Clustered Leaves for the decoration. For the pink background she used Tim Holtz Ranger Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink.

Maura made a simple tag using the DieCember Simon Says Stamp Long Leaf Pine Sprig die, Simon Says Stamp Label Tags die, a new favorite ink – Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink, and added a bit of sparkle with Wink of Stella.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2023 Christmas Layer Frame on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix FEATHERED FRIENDS Thinlits Die and Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2023 Christmas Adornments Deck The Halls.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Framed Tag as the base of her tag, then used Tim Holtz Big Tidings as main focus. She also used other dies to decorate the tag and used Statue Foundry Wax to add some highlights.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
