Day 25 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 25 was Hello Bluebird. This is quite a new company that has some really cute critter stamps! I have to be really strong whenever I see their product as I’d love to get a set, but I know I’d probably just look at it as I don’t tend to use many cutesy images.

There was so much inspiration from the designers. I particularly loved Francesca’s CAS pom-pom tags, but unfortunately didn’t have anything suitable in my supplies (HOW?? I HAVE SO MUCH STUFF!!), so chose Caly’s fabulous pink and purple tag as my inspiration.

I started off by embossing snowflakes from the Simon Says Stamp Lots of Snowflakes set and a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp/Avery Elle Stamptember 2016 collaboration. I then blended the same distress oxide inks that Caly used (Abandoned Coral and Wilted Violet) over the tag. I rubbed the whole tag with a cloth to remove any ink from the snowflakes and then added a few splatters of water.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Looks great, Lucie! Tags don’t need 15 layers and several different elements to be pretty-that’s why I kept mine pretty simple! I wanted to make something that inspires others create using what they had and I am so glad to have inspired you!


  2. Beautiful translation of Caly’s tag, infused with your special touches! Your ink blending…WOW! Another gem in the 25 Days gallery!
