The 25 Days of Christmas Tags
I'm happy to be participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event.
Today some of the Neat & Tangled and Little Tangles DT members are sharing tags.
I really enjoy making tags, and once I got started, it was hard to stop! I ended up with three.
I used the new Classic Tag 1 die for each of these. For this first one I clear embossed Origami Map on a tag cut from watercolor paper. The map was colored with Inktense pencils using a pencil to brush technique (where you just pick up color directly from the pencil using a paintbrush).
The embossing was ironed off, and then the sentiment, using Christmas Journaling and Bible Journaling Companions was stamped using Versafine and clear embossed. I used Kuretake gold paint to color in the Joy.
Next up a super simple tag design that is perfect for mass producing and easy enough for your kids to help. I used watercolor paper again, and randomly stamped the circles from Dala Horse in Delicata ink. The circles were watercolored with Inktense pencils again using the pencil to brush technique.
The sentiment is from Bright Baubles and embossed in gold.
Finally, I had to pull out the Dala Horse Dies. I created a tag for the N&T release with the Dala Horse stamp set here, but I wanted to show how perfect the dies are for Christmas too. This was pretty simple. The tag was die cut from a panel created using the Graduated Stripes Cover Plate.
The Dala Horse was popped up with some foam tape and then the sentiment, from Happy Holidays, was added.
Hope this gives you a few ideas for Christmas. Be sure to stop by the Neat & Tangled blog, Danielle has a tag up there, and of course stop by Tracey's blog as well. There are a whole lot of sponsors for this event. You can leave comments on her 25 Days posts to enter as well as link up a tag. Good luck!
