Holly in your heart

Here's a fun little holly-day tag:

Supplies and notes:
  • Old library card base colored with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Crayons and blended with a bit of water
  • Tree cut from BasicGrey paper inked with Pine Needle Distress Ink through a STAMPlorations heart stencil
  • Both background and tree spayed with Dylusions spray in White Linen for a subtle snowy look... IDK... successful?  
  • The bird is a Dina Wakley stamp on BasicGrey striped paper
  • The holly stamp on the bird's chest is very old... no packaging... I added some Stickles for the berries, and I colored the leaves with a colored pencil then added Glossy Accents
  • The star atop the tree is an oldie found at the school... it's a lick 'n' stick!
I plan to share this cutie at Jingle Belles...



  1. Great contemporary style, love the way you cut the tree, looking good with the stenciling and white spray for snow. A fun, festive tag!

  2. ooooooh! a 2nd helping of crafy mimi xmas awesomeness?! yes please! i love this one... those dina birds were already a fave, but now i'm wondering WHY i've never used them on holiday cards??!?!? gotta fix that ASAP! (ps: i love the "subtle" background snow... it really IS subtle... so i wasn't immediately thinking SMOW... but i did notice and like it a lot!) <3

  3. that should be SNOW and not SMOW. tho, in fairness... i wasn't immediately thinking SMOW either... :0

  4. I love that awesome sprayed effect on your tree ... and what a fun little birdie ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.
