25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 16...my 26th and final TAG!!

My 26th and FINAL TAG for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! On Day 21, Tracey featured inspiration from Lawn Fawn! I am a big fan of Francesca Vignoli's sweet style and was inspired by her sparkling pastel unicorn tag!


I used the robot from Lawn Fawn's set with Chibitronics called "Charge Me Up" and paired him with mini lights and a sentiment from Hello Bluebird. The top of the tag was made with a snow stencil and white texture paste. The robot was stamped with clear ink and embossed in silver.


The robot was colored with Zig Clear Color markers and a waterbrush, then covered with Wink of Stella pen glitter. The lights were cut from colored card stock then coated with Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter. The light string was cut from silver card stock. The snowflakes came from Lawn Fawn's limited edition " Snow Bunnies" set created for Simon Says Stamps' Stamptember.

Thanks SO much to Tracey, her designers and ALL of the companies and Design Team members for putting on a fabulous tag show for us! It's been so inspirational  and fun! Also, a thank you to all who visited my blog and left such sweet comments ❤!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 24

Day 24 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags featured design by Heffy Doodle! I was inspired by Cassie Tezak's sweet pastel scene featuring Santa's Workshop with a pink and white awning!

I made another North Pole village stop...Mrs. Claus' Sweet Shoppe, with Papertrey Ink's Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe...


I used a snow stencil from KaiserCraft with white texture paste over a background sponged with Distress Oxide Inks. Stamped a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


Used Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe stamps and dies and PTI's Tinsel & Tags kit stamps and dies for my little shoppe tucked in the snowy hills of the North Pole!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 16


On Day 16 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, there were sweet designs from Waffle Flower! I
was inspired by Carol Mayne's sweet bear tag with the navy plaid background...



I colored Waffle Flower's adorable "Bear Hugs" image with Zig Clear Color and Tombow markers and placed it over a background made with Hero Art's "Star Light Star Bright" background. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


I cut the whole scene out with a scalloped square die from Nestabilities, then added Stardust Stickles on each and every little star! 😊🎇

25 Days of Christmas. Tags- Day 20

Day 20 at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags brought fun inspiration from A Jillian Vance Design. For the first time, I combined ideas from two designers to make my tag...Jillian Vance and
 Bunny Vance! I love Jullian's buffalo plaid and greenery, and Bunny's fun baked confection tag with a sweet greeting!


I used Papertrey Ink's Christmas Tree Shaker and Holly Jolly dies. I linked the plaid with the Honey Bee Stamps plaid stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


I filled the shaker with the coolest "Polka Parade" rainbow sprinkles from Little Things from Lucy's Cards. Added some Nuvo Drops and baker's twine, and this yummy pastel treat tag is ready!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Bonus Day 26

I'm still posting out of order as I check off my list for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! I skipped ahead to her bonus day 26 so that I could use some cute Hello Bluebir stamps! I chose
 Marine Simon's cute corrugated tags with the adorable snow angel-making deer from "First Snow!"


I had some cream colored corrugated cardboard, and I die cut the deer from two pieces then placed the die cut inside. The added layer makes it seem like the deer has sunk down into the snow.


Added a snowflake cut with a L'il Ibkers die and a tag from PTI stamped with a sentiment from the Firat Snow set. I colored the deer with Zig Clean Color and Tombow markers and a wet paintbrush. Added lots of Sakura Stardust pen in the space around the deer for snowy sparkle Such sweet and fun images and sentiments at Hello Bluebird!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 25

Day 25 at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags brought designs from Honey Bee Stamps.I loved Bobbi Lemanski's winter foliage tags so much that I made two...one inspired by her pine cone tag and the other by her greenery tag.


I loved Bobbi's black woodgrain background, so I made mine with Stampin Up's 3D Woodgrain embossing folder, brushed with white ink. The pine cone and bough were made with The Greetery's new "BotaniCuts Pine Bough" die set. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.


The second tag is made with The Greetery's "Winter Sketches" pine bough and the older Gingham Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms. The sentiment is from The Greetery's "Christmas Eve" set. One of my favorite things I learned from Bobbi's blog is that she colored a stamped woodgrain background from Honey Bee Stamps with Copic markers! I had never done that before, so I stamped a Hero Arts background with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with brown Copics. I love how it looks!

25 Days of Christmas Tags- Day 22

Day 22 at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags brought lovely inspiration from Birch Press Designs. I was inspired by Ashlea Cornell's pretty die cut tag with the glittery sentiments!


I wanted to make a tag with the die cuts left in the frame and neutral background colors like Ashlea, so I used Neat & Tangled "Warm Winter Scene Cover Plate" die again.The pieces were cut from the "Gingham Farm" patterned paper collection from My Mind's Eye 🤗!


I cut some mini stars from silver glitter paper and added a pop of red with a red heart covered in Glossy Accents. The "joy" sentiment is cut from some glossy cream patterned paper with PTI's "Headline Alphabet" dies. Now I have lots of little leftover houses for more fun tags!
