The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019- Day 15

Alrighty,  welcome, welcome one and all,

Today is day 15 of Tracey McNeely’s The 25Days of Christmas Tags.

Today’s sponsor is Concord and 9th.  My tag was inspired by a special guest designer- Laurie Willison.  Several elements in her tag caught my eye.  One of which were the colours- Red, Black, Green, and White and using the silhouette trees.  You can find her beautiful tag here.

Here’s what I used to create my tag: White CS, My Minds Eye 6x6 Christmas paper pad, Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) stamp-Reindeer Flight CMS 052, Gina K’s Amalgam ink, Jute, and twine.

Have a good night everyone, chat tomorrow...

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019- Day 14

Howdy folks.  
Let get it started with Tag or Day 14 of Tracy McNeely’s The 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Click here to find out all the details.  Today’s sponsor is Paper Sweeties and my tag was inspired by Lindsey from the Paper Sweeties DT.  Click here to see her tags.

I really like the gold and silver embossing on the black tags she did.  I created my tag base using my Cricut Maker.  I used Our Daily Bread Designs’ Flourished Alphabet (Item #H675).  I believe Our Daily Bread Designs is now Divinity Designs.  I stamped the alphabet using Color Box white pigment ink, then heat embossed one in gold and one in silver.  I made the ribbon opening using a retired Stampin’ UP! Punch.  Of course, you can use any punch that makes a hole big enough to insert your ribbon of choice.  I just used that one because I saw it a couple of days ago when I was looking for something else…lol.    I added some black Chiffon ribbon and there you have it! Silver and Gold just like Burl Ives sang about in the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Claymation…which be coming up soon.   See you tomorrow!

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019- Day 13

Hello All,
It's Day 13 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Thank you again to Tracey McNeely for putting this event together and to all the supporting sponsors and design teams.  For information on how you can participate click hereThe sponsor for today is CAS-ual Friday Stamps. 

For my day 13 tag, I was once again inspired by Carol.  A pretty little Christmas Tree stamped on a plain white background, one in red and one in green. You can find her tags here.

The supplies I used for my tag- Avery-Elle’s Stitched Rectangles, Stampin Up retired stamp set Evergreen, Stampin Up ink Handsome Hunter also retired, Color Box white pigment ink, and some white seam binding ribbon.   I stamped the tree, then used my pigment ink to stamp the Silent Night overlay, then I heat embossed it.  Quick, clean, simple, precious…works for me.  Well, mon amis that is it for tonight.   Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll visit again soon.

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019- Day 12

Hello my friends, thank you so much coming back to see me.  We are on day 12 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags hosted by Tracy McNeely. We are half-way through and I am still hanging in there posting a new tag each day!  There is still time to jump on board and just in case you are interested in doing so; you can click here for the details.  Today’s sponsor is STAMPlorations! 

My tag was inspired by Carol from the STAMPlorations design team.  Carol did two cute tags, just click on her name to check them out.  Tag 1-Stitched Snow Hills Reindeer and Tag 2 she called a Majestic Deer.  Both are really, really nice.  I especially liked the Majestic Deer.
My tag was made using the following supplies: Base tag is Craft cardstock cut with an Avery-Elle’s Double Stitched Rectangle Die, I used Basic Grey’s Jovial 6x6 pattern cardstock, and Hampton Arts #SC0712-Reindeer stamp and die set, The sentiment and the background are from the same stamp set.  The back ground is stamp with Versa Mark.  All edges (base tag, deer, and sentiment) are inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink, I used Gina K’s Amalgam ink to stamp the sentiment.  I completed the tag by punching a whole with my Crop-A-Dile, adding a 1/8” black eyelet, and adding some natural Jute.  Note: to make the Reindeer stand out, I cut  him out 2 times in Craft cardstock and once in the patterned cardstock and layered them together.   The sentiment is popped up on foam tape.  I love the rustic feel.  So pleased with this one!   I believe that is it for tonight.  Thanks again for stopping by.
