Inspired by 25 Days of Christmas Tags | Tag 1

Hi, guys! Back at the blog. Have you been checking out Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event? Tracey puts this event on with loads of tag inspiration annually and gets all kinds of people sharing Christmas tags. It’s always fun!

I’m going to spend some time over the next week or two, creating some Christmas tags inspired by ones shared during the event.

So, with that, here’s my first tag.

This was inspired by one of the tags Joyce shared on Day 8. I dug Joyce’s blue inked background and did something similar for my tag here.

Avery Elle was the Day 8 sponsor of this year’s event and that felt like a great reason to dig into my Avery Elle stash to make this tag so I did just that! 🙂 I pulled out the Christmas Magic set (which I think might be retired) and stamped and die-cut the little snowman and light pole. Just a little basic coloring to both. To create the look of glass, I did add a light layer of Glossy Accents to the light.

To finish off the tag, I stamped a few snowflakes and a sentiment, plus I added the white pompoms.

Alright! That’s it for me. Be sure to check out this post on Tracey’s blog for details about the event, as well to see how others have been inspired by this year’s tags! (A big thank you to Tracey for continuing to put this event together! The time and effort is so appreciated!)

Snowman Holiday Tags

Hi, everyone!

Here today with a couple holiday tags. These two tags were inspired by the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event from Tracey McNeely!

On Day 7, there were some cute holiday scene created with the Feeling Frosty stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. Love the stamp set and was inspired to make a few scenes of my own on tags.

Please give it up for tag no. 1.

Pretty much every image on this tag was stamped with the Feeling Frosty stamp set. It’s just so cute! I added a little color to the images with markers. Rather than stressing out over the markers’ numbers, I just randomly pulled light and dark markers and ran with it. Easy peasy!

To add to the feel of the snowy scene, added some mini white pompoms to the skies. I love the pop they add.

And meet tag no. 2.

I decided to things a little different for this one by added the coffee cups to the snowmen’s hands. I wanted it to look like they were chilling, hanging out and talking. Wink. 😉

Again, I colored the images in with markers and then embellished the scene by adding some white pompoms to the sky. Love that look!

Alright! That I have for you today. Be sure to check out Tracey’s blog to see the latest tags on this fun challenge. Be back again later, friends.
