Hello and welcome!
Today is Day 10 of my lovely and amazing friend Tracey McNeely's 25 days of Christmas tags event. I cannot believe it's been on for 9 years!! I am so honoured that she has asked me to join her these past few years. She really is the QUEEN of Christmas tags.
Today's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp so I made my tags with some of their great line of products. To give you an idea of just how excited I am, I made two tags for today. 😊 So without further delay...I will show you the tags already! 😂
My first tag:
For this first tag I used two dies. The -Christmas token die- and the -Maryanne snowflake-. I cut the Christmas token out of blue glitter cardstock 4 times. This die has a big snowflake in the centre that I didn't want to use so I used a circle die to cut it out. I wanted just the words as a frame where I could suspend the smaller snowflake inside. Once I had just the frame I glued them together. I cut the smaller snowflake out of silver glitter cardstock 4 times. I glued a piece of silver thread in between the layers so I could attach it to the frame I created. Once this was attached, all that was left to do was attach a loop for hanging. I added some bells and a red bow for a pop of colour. Easy...Peasy!
My second tag:
For this tag I stamped the image from the -Winter Hugs- stamp set onto a plain white ornament tag that I die cut from Neenah white cardstock. I masked the image off and ink blended the background sky. I used some Studio calico shine spray to make the snow drops. I coloured the image in with copic markers and used a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to add some shimmer to the image. I used a WOW! embossing pen to add some puffy embossing powder to the hat. I heat embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock and attached it with foam tape. To finish it off I attached a white silk ribbon for hanging.
Phew! I think that took longer to explain than to make. 😝
Now... wouldn't you love to win one of the awesome prizes that have been so generously provided by the AMAZING sponsors? If you would then hop on over to Tracey's blog for all the details on how you can get init...to winit!
Well that's it from me for today. Happy hopping!
