Hi, friends!

I am super excited to share a tag inspired by Tracey McNeeley’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

What is Tracey’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event you ask? Well, for quite a few years now, Tracey has invited folks to create Christmas tags in November. It’s a super fun event with lots and lots (and lots) of tag inspiration.

Technique Tuesday is sponsoring her event today, and I’m super thrilled to contribute a tag of mine to the fun.

Created this little guy with the new Christmas Cocoa set, which just came out on the 1st. (Confession time: I designed it myself.)

I stamped the mug on cardstock, colored in with markers and then fussy cut it with scissors. I applied a bunch of glue to the foam and dipped it in glass glitter to add that touch of sparkle.

I sponged some blue ink on a rectangle of cardstock and added the mug, some stamped hearts and a few drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Then I cut a shape and adhered the panel to it with Crafty Foam Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I finished the tag by stamping a few words and popping a hole the top of the tag and adding some red twine. I think it turned out pretty great.

I’m planning on using this tag on a holiday package, but I think it would look pretty swell on a card too.

By the way, don’t forget to comment over on Tracey’s blog post. There’s a Technique Tuesday gift certificate up for grabs. It’s always fun to have a chance to win something. for just saying a few kind words and all. Fingers crossed that one of you takes it home.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I sure appreciate it when you do. It’s always a treat! See you again soon.

  1. I don’t care for Pumpkin and I don’t drink coffee but I love Peppermint so I wait all year for “Merry Peppermint Everything” and Christmas Cocoa (plus a little Eggnog too) lol. Your tag is awesome, the Christmas Cocoa Stamp Set is definitely a must have for me! Thanks for sharing your tag and the inspiration. (mardy14@bellsouth.net)

  2. This is SO cute, Teri. I’m inspired by the raised portion on your sweet tag. Thanks for sharing!
