The 25 Days of Christmas Tags

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.


As I mentioned in our Rerun post this month featuring for In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez, when I have several projects to work on at once I like to use the same materials and see where that leads me.   

I actually began by stamping on a manila tag using In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez with abandoned coral, fossilized amber and cracked pistachio Oxide Distress Inks and black jack along with flicking some gold spray.  I stamped "joy" onto a manila tag and cut it out using the coordinating cutaway and adhered it to the tag using foam dimensional adhesive. 


This tag inspired me to create the same background with the stamp set and I used abandoned coral, fossilized amber and cracked pistachio Oxide Distress Inks and black jack along with flicking some gold spray on a piece of white cardstock. 


On a couple of larger manila shipping tags in black jack I stamped the solid woodgrain from Scenery: Into the Woods and then adhered a strip of the stamped background to the bottom of the tag and then also added a scalloped border cut using Georgette Border Cutaways over the seem.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental: Winter in cracked pistachio.  


Hope you get inspired to make some tags!

Kelly has an awesome tag for you HERE.
