Christmas Tags Challenge 3

I’m back today with not only the next five cards inspired by Tracey Mcneely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags, but also with a few tags I was simply just inspired to make.

Day 11

Day 11:  Today’s tag was inspired by Galina’s cute tag featuring a festive character set back in a hole.  I used this unique tag shape from CDD instead of a circle, and this fun snowman from Stampendous instead of an elf.  I colored the image in with my copics and added some 3D adhesive squares and finally added a sentiment in some blue archival ink.

Day 12

Day 12:  For this day I was inspired by Samantha’s star shaped tag with the yellow distressing.  I followed her example using my seven point star dies and a Honeybee Design stencil to distress my yellow ink.  I finally added a festive character from a Stampendous holiday stamp set!

Day 13

Day 13:  I was inspired by Elena’s CAS tag with the plaid base and sweet little rabbit.  I added a little more complex plaid and a fun skating bear that I colored with my colored pencils.  I finally added a ‘to/from’ from an incredibly old stamp set and added a touch of distressing around the edges of the tag.

Day 14

Day 14:  I was simply enamored with Concord and 9th’s CAS kraft tag with the white snowflakes.  I followed the inspiration tag’s example and added a silly little sentiment.  I heat embossed some snowflakes on in white, added a stripe of washi tape and a few drops of Nuvo Drops.

Day 15Day 15:  I found myself completely drawn to Tracey’s distressed ornament tag.  I pulled out a circle die and die cut some bristol paper.  I heat embossed some clear embossing powder over the sentiment and snowflake impressions and then distressed some Mustard seed, Festive Berries and Salty Ocean distress inks onto the tag.

Extra 1I was completely inspired to make some of my own tags, and started with a wine bottle tag die cut from a HoneyBee Designs die set and a sentiment from Inkadinkadoo.

Extra 2

And if one wine tag wasn’t enough, I needed more since, lets be honest…how many wine bottles are given out during the holiday’s.  The circles and scalloped edge are die cut from a CDD die set and the sentiment and glass are from an Inkadinkadoo set.  I colored the glass with my copics and heat embossed the gold lettering!

Art Impressions

Finally, I did these two tags for Art Impressions current challenge, a TAG IT challenge.  I die cut the plaid card stock with a Honeybee Designs die set and added the sentiment and images from AI’s Southwest Christmas stamp set!

I will be back soon with more tags.  Till then…happy crafting!
