52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Day 3 of "24 Days of Tags 2022" with Karen Telfer

How December is starting to fly! 

After making the third tag of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2022" challenge, I decided to put the Christmas tree up.  This tree is usually in the craft room, we deliberately chose one that didn't have to wide a base, so that it took less space, but as the three Grand Children will be here for the first Christmas with us, I decided to put it in the lounge, so they have plenty of carpet area to play with their new toys.

I've not managed to decorate the rest of the house yet.  I'll leave that excitement for another day!

Anyway, returning to the tag.  Tag three is about using patterned paper on kraft card.  Here's is Karen's demo if you would like to take part.

I more or less followed Karen's instructions.  It was nice to use some of my patterned paper as it seems ages since I delved in to that drawer and used some.

I have an old picnic hamper that holds my Funky Fossil MDF shapes, so I had a rummage in there finding some stars and a stag, so decided to use them.  

Using Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink, I stamped the "T'is the Season" sentiment, which is part of a Simon Says Stamp set called "Tiny Words - Christmas".  You may notice I like using these small sentiments on my cards and tags.  I want it to speak but not shout... if you know what I mean.

Right, I need to go and hoover all the glittery bits on the carpet and tidy up a little.  I'll catch you for tag four tomorrow.


  1. Your tag and tree are just lovely

  3. This has a wonderful rustic look using the kraft card and the MDF stars and deer Sam, and only brown ink and with the colour left to the holly and berry background paper and the tree trunks. x
