The 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Don't miss out on our November 2017 Release Premiere Day No. 4 HERE!  
25 Days of Christmas 
Hello loverlies!  It is Shay here today with a very fun post.

Tracey McNeely has a wonderful event called The 25 Days of Christmas Tags in which for 25 days she features Christmas tags.  There are lots of guests and giveaways along the way!

One of the first things I learned to stamp was tags so this is near and dear to my heart.

We are just wrapping up our November 2017 Release today (products are available tonight, November 10, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. CST) and we happen to have some fun tag products releasing this Release.

I used the largest hexagon from Essentials: Josephine Cutaways to cut out 2 hexagons from colored cardstock.  For each I kept the two layers together with washi tape on the back.  Then I used some sheer shimmer spray with the Scenery: Rugby Stripe Creative Screenings to spray stripes of shimmer on the hexagons.  I let it dry and then shifted the stencil so the plastic was covering the shimmer stripes and used ink of a shade similar to the cardstock to add more depth to the stripes.  Next I used a black pen and used the stencil to trace the lines of the shimmer stripes. Over the lower shimmer stripe I stamped the sentiment from In Bloom: Debra's Poinsettia with Lydia Evans in black ink.

I then cut out In a Word: Believe Cutaway 4 times from white cardstock.  For two of them I sprayed with shimmer sprays and then inked up a bit with black.  I added one of the white believes over the sprayed believe slightly offsetting it to give it dimension when I adhered them together before I adhered them to the tags using foam dimensional adhesive.

To make the hexagons tag I added the tiny sweet little tag that comes with the Essentials: Josephine Cutaways.

Now you have some simple, bold and vibrant tags to add to gifts or to a project.

Heather and Kate also played along with a truly magnificent tags using the November 2017 Release products.  CLICK HERE to see Heather's and CLICK HERE to see Kate's!

Happy tag making,
Shay

  10. These are just spectacular, Shay! Love the cool, icy colors and the fabulous shimmer.

    Confessions of a Crafter: I have to be honest...I don't "get" tags. I don't even really understand how to make them!! lol... And I wouldn't have a clue how to use them, unless I just put them on a card. But your tags have inspired me, Shay. I might actually be able do a much simpler improvised version of your tags. But, wait....what would I do with it once I made it. Help!!!
