Ciao a tutti! Questa settimana doppio post per il mio Blog! Ogni primo Venerdì di ogni mese potete trovarmi sul Blog A Vintage Journey con una nuova sfida insieme a tutte le nostre Guide Creative e le loro magnifiche ispirazioni! Oggi il tema è inevitabilmente Holly Jolly Christmas!

Hello everyone! This week double post for my Blog! Every first Friday of every month you can find me on the Blog A Vintage Journey with a new challenge together with all our Creative Guides and their magnificent inspirations! Today the theme is inevitably Holly Jolly Christmas!

Per questo tema ho utilizzato un set di Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, Modern Christmas CMS 388, e ho realizzato quattro tag, una per ciascun soggetto! Sono ossessionata dallo sfondo nero e ho voluto provare di nuovo a vedere quali effetti si possono creare con questo colore come base!
La realizzazione è semplice! Una base embossata con alcune fustelle a tema e i miei soggetti timbrati con inchiostro bianco e poi con versamark utilizzando come colore una polvere da embossing diversa per ogni tag. Giocare con le polveri è stato davvero fantastico, ne ho mixate tante e mi sono proprio le Divertita! I risultati di colore e abbinamenti sono particolari, due molto tradizionali e due un pochino più azzardate! Sull'embossing a freddo ho utilizzato per evidenziarlo le cere di Prima Marketing. Ecco fatto! Semplici e veloci !
Spero vi piacciano, vi lascio i dettagli!

For this theme, I used a set of Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, Modern Christmas CMS 388, and I made four tags, one for each subject! I am obsessed with the black background and I wanted to try again to see what effects can be created with this color as a base!
The realization is simple! To create the background I used some themed embossing folder and my subjects stamped with white ink and then with Versamark using different colors of embossing powder for each tag. Playing with embossing powders was really fantastic, I mixed a lot of them and I really enjoyed it! The results of color and combinations are particular, two very traditional and two a little more untraditional! Over on the embossed backgrounds, I used Prima Marketing wax to highlight it. Done! Quick and easy!
I hope you like them, here the details!

Spero di essere riuscita a darvi qualche idea per questo Natale! Vi aspettiamo con i vostri progetti su A vIntage journey Challenge Blog!Grazie di essere passati ci vediamo qui prestissimo!

I hope I was able to give you some ideas for this Christmas!  We are waiting for you with your projects on A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog!Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you here soon!

All four tags are stunning Barbara. Such a wonderful use of colour - the green just jumps out! And such wonderful textures too .... I think the crackle embossing folder will be dropping into a basket sometime soon! Have a lovely weekend xxx

Gorgeous tags Barbara, I am loving your use of the black backgrounds and how you have used the embossing folders and embossing powders, so much texture and interest! Love the Modern Christmas stamps too, they are one of my favourites of Tim's releases this year. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely Christmas tags, Deb xo

I've only just realised that I never caught up with last month's AVJ inspiration (and now the new challenge is almost here!)... what wonderful card designs, Barbara - so original and different from anything else I've seen. They have such drama with those dark, shadowy backgrounds, with sudden hints of light and colour, and the Modern Christmas stamps really look amazing.

I hope you are enjoying some rest and relaxation as well as plenty of fun and creativity in this festive season.
I'm still in Christmas hibernation (don't come out fully until after 12th Night on 6th January!), but am trying to do a bit of catching up with people even so. Happy New Year!
