Two More Christmas Tags

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi, guys!

It’s been a few days. Got a couple more tags to share as my sharing stopped with the Thanksgiving holiday happening here.

These two tags were inspired by Tracey’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. So sad the inspiration is nearing a close, but what fun it has been! Thank you again for putting together such a fun event, Tracey.

Meet Tag No. 1.

This one was inspired by Julie’s tag here. The bright snowflake against the white background just really caught my eye.

I cut a couple wreaths (with an older Ellen Hutson die)  from watercolor paper and colored them in with watercolors. Then I stacked them on top to make the one big wreath.

It’s really hard to tell from the picture, but I added a hint of sparkle to the wreath by spreading a thin layer of Stickles on it with my finger. It’s really, really subtle but fun.

To keep the background of the tag somewhat interesting but not too distracting, I dry embossed a piece of cardstock with this embossing folder from Sunny Studio Stamps.

I also added a sentiment stamped on cardstock (with the Feeling Frosty set from Sunny Studio Stamps).

And meet Tag No. 2.

A Christmas Tag by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

This one is hard to tell but it was inspired by the retro feel of Hannelie’s tag.  If you placed them next to each other, you wouldn’t be able to tell… but I can assure you, that retro feeling got my creative juices flowing.

This is a simple tag that really took just a few minutes to make with simple stamping and embellishing. So, so simple. All the images are from Wonder and Magic of Christmas set from Hero Arts, by the way.

That’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping on by! Don’t forget to check out the link up on Tracey’s blog. There are just so many amazing tags linked up that were inspired all the tags shared. It is cool to see.

A Word-y Christmas Tree

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi, all!

Well, surprise surprise! I’m back with another tag… another Christmas tag. Shocked, right? Ha! Wink!

Today’s tag was inspired by a combination of tags shared during the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. There were a few tags that featured text mainly as the design element on on them (for example, Debby’s Cheer tag here) that caught my eye. And there was Joyce’s Tree tag on Day 12 too that made me say, “That’s cool!”

Collectively, the text tags and Joyce’s tree tag inspired me to make this simple little tag. So let’s take a look at it. 🙂

It’s a simple little tag, really.

I simply made the Christmas tree by stamping words and stars from the Spreading Joy stamp set from Paper Smooches on a die-cut tag.  Then I stamped a heart in the middle of the “o” in Joy. To sauce it and the stars up, I applied a thin layer of Stickles onto them. I love the little glitz the glitter adds.

I thought about using another word stamp to make the tree’s trunk, but I instead went the easy route. I freehand cut a simple trunk from kraft cardstock and plopped it in place.

I finished the tag off with by tying some jute throught the top of it. I purposely chose jute because it matches the color of the tree trunk. I think a nice red and white baker’s twine would have looked swell though as well.

Alrighty! That is it for me today. I’ll be back again later. Pretty sure I’ll be back again in the next couple days with another tag or two. I just can’t stop. Having so much fun. Thanks again, Tracey, for all your efforts in putting this fun event together… and for the flood of inspiration to play!

And a big thanks to all of you out there for swinging by, as always. It’s always a treat!

Silly Christmas Tags

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi again, friends!

I’m still making Christmas tags. I’m still having a lot of fun checking out this year’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags from Tracy McNeely (and her host of stampy friends)!

I made two tags today that are kinda similar, but this is the first one.

A funny Christmas tag by Teri - terisplace.wordpress.com

Just being goofy with this guy! I stamped the alligator awhile back (from the Animal Sweaters set from Flora and Fauna) and colored him in. I thought how fun it would be to dress him up so I added a stamped sweater, boots and reindeer antlers (all from the stamp set) to him. I also added the big old red gem (or Rudolph nose) to his face. Hee!

I was inspired by Carol’s tag here to add a few stamped snowflakes on the background. They did a nice job completing the scene as the tag seemed a little bare without them.

This tag made me giggle and resulted in me making a second silly Christmas tag.

This time I used the adorable pug stamp set from the same stamp set, along with sweater pants and reindeer antlers. I once again added a red gem for his nose. (Hee!)

The tree (as well as the snowflake) is from a different Flora and Fauna stamp set called Unicorn Ice Castle. It’s super fun too.

Alright! That’s it for me today. Be sure to stop by in the next couple days. I’ll be sharing another tag or two. Been having so much fun, playing along and all!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Tags Technique

Hi, guys!

Looking for a little extra inspiration? I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today, sharing a fun technique for making Christmas tags. I’m showing how to make  window tags!

Here’s a little peek at my tags.

Christmas Tree Window Tags by Teri for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stop on by over there for the scoop on how to make your own Christmas Tree Window Tags. They take a little more time than one layer tags but they are so fun looking when put together. It’s so worth the extra time!

I hope you’ll check out my post!

See you again soon, friends!

25 Days of Christmas Tags… Paper Smooches Style!

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi, friends!

It’s another day of 25 Days of Christmas Tags fun! Today, Paper Smooches is the sponsor! And I’m geeked to share a few tags I made in honor of the fun.
Give it up for Tag No. 1.
TeriSantaPawsTag-1
I created the base of this tag by cutting a tag base from with the To From Tag Dies and then flicking a teeny tiny amount watercolor paint on it. And, no, I didn’t use watercolor cardstock. I used plain old heavy cardstock. Since it was such a little amount of paint (and thick cardstock), there was no warping.
The stamps are from the Merry Motifs and Santa Paws sets from Paper Smooches. It’s a wee bit hard to tell but I colored in Rudolph’s nose with a red marker and then added a layer of Glossy Accents right on top of it.
Here’s Tag No. 2.
TeriSantaPawsTag-2
Once again, I used the tag dies to cut the tag base and then added little patterned paper on top. I stamped Santa (from Santa Paws) and then cut him down to fit on my tag. Just for fun, I added a teeny tiny pompom to his hat.
The sentiment is from the Enchanted Elves stamp set.
And, finally, here’s Tag No. 3.
A Christmas Tag created by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com
This one is the tag I created last. I had stamped several images from Merry Motifs, including this bulbs. I had them sitting on my desk and thought, “Well, those sure would be cute on a tag.” And, so, that’s what I did. I made this tag with them. 😉  To make them “pop” off the tag, I secured them onto it with a couple 3D Foam Circles from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I always love adding a little pop with their 3D Foam products.
The sentiment? It, too, is from the Merry Motifs stamp set.
Ok. That’s all the tags I have in me for today. I’ll be back later with a few more… because tags are just so much fun and such a good creative way to play. Anyone else out there feel the same way? High 5. A big old high 5 to you.
Oh, and be sure to stop by Tracey’s blog today to see all the Christmas tags (today, yesterday and so many days in a row… wink!) … and to learn more about this fun event. You’ll also want to check out this post to see the awesome link up to all the cool tags that were inspired by this year’s event. Good job, everyone!

PS… there are PRIZES to be won… so you really, really, really should check out Tracey’s blog!  (wink!)

A Joyful Wreath Christmas Tag

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi, everyone!

I’m back yet again with another Christmas tag.

Today’s tag was inspired by a couple different tags shared as part of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags from Tracey McNeely that had wreaths on them: Lin’s on Day 10; Dana’s on Day 9; and Lindsey’s on Day 9 as well.

This tags made me just want to explore my stash of holiday stuff and find a wreath (or wreath’ish) stamp or die and make something… and so I did.

A Christmas tag by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

The wreath (or wreath’ish thingy) is from Ellen Hutson, as is the “joy” word. To make the word pop, I cut it twice from red cardstock, layered the words on top of each other and then added a big ol’ coat of Glossy Accents to it.

I also added a little random color with green markers to the edges of the wreath.JoyWreathTag-2-teri

The tag base? It’s from an older, discontinued (but still fun) tag builder die set from My Favorite Things, while the stamped words are from the Simply Winter Sentiments stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

Super simple tag, although it did take a little time to dry with the Glossy Accents and all. 🙂

If you haven’t already checked out Tracey’s fun event, I encourage you to do so now. So many wonderful tags are uploaded each day, plus folks are sharing tags that have been inspired by them. That makes it super duper fun.

Anyway, that’s it for now. I’ll be back later, friends.

 

A Wreath Card and Tag

Hi, friends!

Looking for a little Christmas card and gift tag inspiration? I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today, sharing a couple new projects. Here’s a little peek at the goods.

TeriAnderson-WreathCardAndMatchingGiftTag-1

I’ll give you the scoop on how I made the little wreaths. Yes, they might look simple but, wow, they took quite a few steps.

Plus I’ll tell you how I used some of the awesome products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to really make the wreaths pop off the card and tag. Talk about time savers!

I’d be tickled if you’d check the post out. Thanks for stopping by, friends. I’ll be back later in the week!

 

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Jillibean Soup

44525104_10213456480951907_1009268704120143872_n

Hi, friends!

I’m thrilled today to share a couple tags inspired by Tracey McNeeley’s 8th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

Today, Tracey and friends are sharing tags that feature products from Jillibean Soup.

I’m contributing two tags for today’s fun. Both of my tags were created with Jillibean Soup’s Holiday Shape Shakers collection.

25Tags2018-Jillibean3-teri

This little tag was created with a couple of their new stamp and die sets: Llama Holiday and Be Tacky. I gotta tell you that little llama just slays me. Such an adorable little dude to use on holiday gift tags…. and Christmas cards, too. 25Tags2018-Jillibean4-teri

This next little tag uses the Merry & Bright stamps and dies to do the trees , plus the Llama Holiday and Loads of Cheer stamps and dies to the sentiment.25Tags2018-Jillibean1-teri25Tags2018-Jillibean2-teri

One thing I feel the urge to say is how much I enjoyed mixing and matching the stamps and dies from Jillibean’s Holiday Shakers collection together. They all are really fun to mix and match…. and I’ve always had a soft spot for doing that when I craft.

Alrighty. That’s what I have. Be sure to stop by Tracey’s blog for tons more holiday tag inspiration. So, so, so many great ideas to be had. So much inspiration!

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for be-bopping on by. It’s a total treat when you do.

 

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Technique Tuesday

44525104_10213456480951907_1009268704120143872_n

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.

25Tags2018-TT-Cocoa-teri

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.

25DaysTag2018-2-TT-teri

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.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi guys!

Happy to be taking part again in this year’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event with the awesome Tracey McNeeley! Today, the Technique Tuesday crew is joining the fun by contributing some tags.

Here’s my take on a tag!

A handmade tag by Teri for Technique Tuesday // terisplace.wordpress.com

Just had some fun with this one. Created a base with Technique Tuesday’s Story Card dies and then cut a bunch of snowflakes with the Snowflakes and Sparkle and Shine dies to place on the label and layer under it. I think the ones under it look kinda like lace doilies. Kinda fun, right?

You might wondering about those words? They are from the Being Unique stamp set, also from Technique Tuesday.

Alright. That’s what I have for you. Be sure to swing by Tracey’s blog to see what the rest of the team has cooked up!
