The Twelve Kits of Occasions: December Edition!

The month of December and the year of 2019 draws to a close.  We are all ready to celebrate the coming of 2020, but first it's time to celebrate December's 12 Kits of OccasionsMarcia is our host this month, and she sent us the most amazing package of items to create Christmas tags!  I think I used almost every little bit of this kit and created sixteen tags!

All of the supplies Marcia included helped make each tag unique:

I am in love with this sweet scarf donned owl!  He's colored in Copics and the tag is ink blended over a SugarPea Designs stencil.
I adhered the Tim Holtz tissue paper that Marcia included to make this quick tag!
A little masking and ink blending was all it took to finish this car with tree scene.  Of course, those snowflakes that Marcia included in the kit completed the look.
I used a couple of stencils on both of these tags.  The white tag received DI Festive Berries, and the red tag received SU! white ink.  I added some SugarPea Designs holly and berries.
I decided that this bear was enjoying a cup of peppermint mocha.  Those peppermint candies that Marcia included are so adorable!
This polar bear sits on a masked and ink blended background too.
Marcia cut out all the pieces for this shaker jar!  I added a LF sentiment and a little ribbon.
Marcia's packaging included this wonderful washi tape which I added to the top and bottom of this tag.
These deer were shaded with DI Gathered twigs.  I stenciled a bit of snow on this beautiful gray tag and added a white cs snow hill.
Such a fun llama to color!  The white tag was ink blended with DI Mowed Lawn.
Such a sweet little snow globe!  Marcia even die cut that snow bank for us!
This tag started out white.  I ink blended it in DI Festive Berries and then Aged Mahogany through a stencil.
This is actually a cute tiny little tag.  You can see how it compares to the others in the group photo at the top.
A little kraft/white/red combo for this polar bear mamma and her cubs.
This tag was colored using Derwent Inktense pencils and then ink blended with a bit of DI Chipped Sapphire.

Thank you, Marcia, for all of the fun little bits and pieces!  All of the products in the kit are listed over at the 12 Kits of Occasions blog.  Please stop by for much more inspiration from all of my teammates!
