25 Tags of Christmas


I am so happy to be joining Tracey McNeely for her 25 Tags of Christmas!  If you haven't seen her blog, make sure to check it out for loads of tag inspiration.  I made 3 tags using each of our Christmas/Holiday stamps.  There is also a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate on Tracey's blog.  I invite you to go to her blog and enter!

I used the Stocking Peekers set to create this adorable tag with the mouse peeking over the edge.  I also paired it with the sentiment to say "Merry Christmouse."

This elephant from the Christmas Critters set is one of my favorite critters, so I had to include him on a tag.  I colored the image in with Copic Markers and I adhered it onto circle die cut that I made into a tag.

I wanted to keep this tag really simple so I heat embossed the snowman and sentiment from Snowmany Hugs onto a kraft tag.  I then adhered some Snowflake sequins and matted the tag onto a piece of red patterned paper.

Don't forget about our Black Friday sale that is going on now!  Use code FRIDAY15 to take 15% off your purchase.  The ever-popular Thoughts and Prayers set is back in stock, so pick up your set before it sells out again!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I used the Ballet Love stamp set to create this adorable birthday card!  The background was done by blending Distress Inks.
