Day 25 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

WOO-HOO! I made it to Day 25 of Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event, people! My Christmas Eve should be much calmer this year as I won’t be rushing to finish my tags! Mind you, I’ll probably be rushing to finish something else instead though!

The sponsor for Day 25 was Pink & Main. There was so much inspiration from the DT – so many beautiful tags! Pamela Peese’s tag really stood out to me and so I just HAD to CASE it, using regular distress ink and stamps from Create a Smile and Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 24 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 24 was Right at Home. There was more great inspiration in the gallery and I particularly loved the tag that Tracey created for this day! As I don’t have many Right at Home products, I used a die from Impress Cards and stamp from Simon Says Stamp for my take.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

Pretty Pink Posh was the sponsor for Day 23. Such fabulous inspiration from the DT too! Unfortunately, I don’t have any PPP stamps as I haven’t found a UK supplier, but I do have A LOT of PPP sequins so I knew I wanted to do a shaker tag. I was inspired by the cute purple tags that Amy Yang created.

For my take, I used the stamps and dies from the Hero Arts’ November My Monthly Hero kit and distress inks to create the tag. The sequins are from PPP’s beautiful Winter Sparkle mix.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 22 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 22 was Stamplorations. Linda Walmsley was my inspiration for this tag – I loved how she created her tag on a kraft base!

As I don’t have any festive stamps by Stamplorations, I used one of my little-used Penny Black sets. Don’t know why it doesn’t seem to get much use – don’t you think the tree is fabulous? I didn’t have any red embossing powder for the sentiment so I decided to try my new red Delicata ink. Just look at that fabulous shimmer! Love these inks! I am so happy they are producing more colours!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 21 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 21 was Uniko Stamps. I don’t have many Uniko products, but I do have my eye on some of their fabulous stamp sets!

As I don’t have any Uniko Christmas products, I used stamps from Clearly Besotted and Penny Black for my take on Jane Taylor’s cute tag! I love how she put a wreath behind the tree – such a great design!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 20 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 20 was Waffle Flower Crafts. I was so shocked to discover that I don’t appear to have any Christmas sets from Waffle Flower – I’m sure I have and they are just hiding somewhere in my craft room! As I decided at the start of the challenge that I was going to use my festive stamps rather than repurpose my non-festive sets, I turned to my Ellen Hutson stamps for my take on Lindsey M-P’s cute stocking tag!

I enjoyed working with non-traditional colours so much yesterday, I turned to some more non-traditional colours again today!

I stamped and embossed the stocking before masking it off and smooshing some abandoned coral distress ink onto the background. When I removed the mask, some ink had bled through it, but I simply lifted it off using a bit of water. Once it was dry, I coloured the stocking using my Twinkling H2O paints before stamping a sentiment from the same Essentials by Ellen set.

Thanks for stopping by!
