Eleven and Twelve

What a brilliant twelve days. I've tried out so many new techniques and materials, but I think I'm going to have a little rest after today (except I really must make something for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge).
Anyway, here are tags eleven and twelve.
I wish I'd used whiter paper for my background on tag eleven, but did have fun making my own stamp.

The top of my tree looks a bit wonky because I made it last night, and when I came to assemble my tag this morning the top had been chewed off!! I think my kitties have been up to no good over night. I did find it halfway up the stairs, so it probably didn't keep them amused for very long. A little bit of ink and it doesn't show too much.
Definitely had to use improvisation on tag twelve as I do not have that die, so cut out a bauble and inked it with Firebrick red, but it's come out really dark, and the crackle paint has gone blobby.
I used a 50p Christmas decoration for my foliage, and cut it up to get the desired effect. The photo looks a bit blurry, but this is about the fourth attempt so I don't think it's going to get any better.
