ABC’s Blog Hop ~ X

 ABC's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “X”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “X” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from DIANA SANDERS Blog then you are in the right place.

The letter “X” is a difficult letter to come up with paper, stamp or embellishment as there is only a limited number of words which begin with the letter “X”.  So I had to get a bit creative…. We are heading into the holiday season and since Christmas is often abbreviated X-Mas, I thought this would be perfect.  What would make great gifts for X-mas presents but a bottle of wine. Yes if you follow my blog or this hop then this will sound familiar as I designed a wine tag for the letter “W”.   Well here is another one I designed.  I have to say I love this concept and you will be seeing more.

To created the soft color of the polar bear I used a bit of reindeer with a blending pen.  It created a softer look than using the alcohol marker which was the look I was going for.  You could use watercolor pencils too but my blues did now match the way I wanted.

For this tag I used the following products:

  • Paper pack~ Snowhaven
  • Cardstock ~ Daisy White
  • Stamp Set ~ Polar Bear Holiday C1557
  • Shimmer Trim ~ Red
  • Stickles
  • Ink/re-inkers~ Black Momento, Glacier, Ruby and Whisper
