Dragons Dream TIO–Christmas

No recipe to follow this fortnight at Dragons Dream Tag It On  – just the requirement to use at least one “real” stamp and to make a Christmas themed tag.

I have been playing along with a group of NZ Girls and the Elf on a Shelf so I  thought my tag was quite appropriate.



The tag was stamp with wee stars and I used an embossing powder called Bridal Veil which is very pretty but doesn’t show up in the photos and the Elf was from the same stamp set.  It was a freebie with a magazine (Australian I think).  I used Distress Markers to colour him in and also to colour the sentiment.  That was a Silhouette shape that I used a pen with rather than a blade.  The lamp-post was also cut out on the cameo.  The charm was from a pack that I got at one of those cheap import shops.

Here is my elf giving me some advice on my almost finished tag.


I will take this opportunity to wish One and All a Very Merry Christmas! Hoping yours is both fun and safe!

Cheers, Esther  xoxo
