ABC Christmas 'N' and 'O' Challenge

Hi all and welcome back to a new theme on the ABC Christmas Challenge! If you have been joining us from the beginning of the year you should have a healthy box of cards ready to use! If not then maybe you should think about joining in, there are only 174 days left to go!

The lovely Helen is our hostess for this month and the themes are 

'N'  for Name
and/or 
'O' for On something, 
(Skates, Sledges, Trees etc)

 For the 'N' for Names I made a pair of tags using a Neat & Tangled Winter Wishes Stamp Set 



I used Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks for the background and when the ink was dry I used White Pigment ink and 3D Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder for the image. 

'O' for On On Dasher, On Dancer, On Prancer and Vixen ;-) 


I used a Tim Holtz Globe and Christmas Village Die Sets. For the background I used the same Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks, masking the circle behind the globe so that I could separate the colours. I then spritzed and splattered with water and inks. I used a Simon's Exclusive Falling Stars Stencil and White Embossing Paste to create a starry sky and while the paste was still wet I sprinkled with dark blue and aqua glitters. 



We are sponsored by the lovely hostess Helen and she is giving this fabulous stamp away to one lucky winner

I love blue at Christmas and your gorgeous tags and card are fabulous examples, Lorraine. I haven't seen that globe before and I love how you masked off the centre to create a dual coloured background. Such a great design!
