Christmas Tags Day 15

Here we are at Day 15 for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely. My inspiration today came from Yainea Nunez. She has two snowmen but  I decided to add different friends for my snowman!

Christmas Tags Day 20

Today's tag is modeled after Tracey McNeely's. She used the beautiful poinsettia from Altenew as the focal point. I am sorry I could not copy and paste it here for you to see. You will find it here: 25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 20 and all of the other tags for this terrific challenge. Here is my tag inspired by Tracey's -

Christmas Tags Day 14

Hi Bloggers and Friends, Tracey McNeely made a tag with Santa as the focal point of course! I looked though my Santa stamps and selected one which I really like for my tag today. It is My Favorite Things. It turned out to be one of my favorite tags this season. I'm entering it in Tracey's challenge for Day 14 on her blog - In My Creative Opinion - 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Check out all the tags from this challenge and you can't help but be inspired!

Joy Tag

It's Day 13 at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge. I love the tags by Laura Pryor, especially her wreath tag below. She and some other designers from Lil' Inker Designs made some beautiful tags for  Day 13 of Tracey's Challenge. Here's my wreath tag for Day 13 (on the right.)

Ho Ho Ho Tag

Lucky me - It's the weekend! I made two tags today for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, which can be found on her blog In My Creative Opinion. My second tag today was inspired by Tracey's tag of Santa Claus! I wasn't able to copy and paste Tracey's tag here, but you can see it on her blog for Day 12. She used pretty plaid paper behind a stamped and colored Santa image. Here is my tag, inspired by Tracey's.

Cheers Tag

Hi Bloggers. Tracey McNeely is up to Day 12 on her 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Check out all the cute tag projects on her blog, In My Creative Opinion. Today she has designers from Serendipity Stamps and yesterday she had DT members from Technique Tuesday, two terrific stamp companies!

I took my inspiration from Jill Hawkins, Day 11. I especially liked how her tag (on the left) drew your attention to her snowman with the blue scalloped circle, so I used a scalloped circle die in a similar color for my snowman. I did change it up a bit by making my tag a circle instead of rectangle this time! Thanks for checking out my tag today!

Christmas Tag Day 8

25 Days of Chirstmas Tags Day 8 - I have another tag for this challenge! This one was inspired by Tracey McNeely's tag, which you can see below. My photo isn't very good on this one. The "Oh Joy" is white heat embossed and the Christmas ball is water colored with Wink of Stella glitter on top. Looking at it now I think I'll go back and round off the bottom corners and add a few sequins! Have a good rest of the week.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

The weekend is coming to a close, but I wanted to make one more Christmas tag before it was over. This week will be a busy one for me so I'm not sure how many tags I will be able to complete. I went back through the six days so far for The 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge from Tracey McNeely and found a lovely scene on this tag from Day 2 from Jeanne Jachna. I was inspired to make a scene for my tag although I did not stick to just two colors. I did use water color, snow, and a critter. My tag is on the right. Thanks for viewing  my blog this weekend!

Be Merry

My Tag


I am loving these Christmas Tags! Another one completed today for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely. Tonight I was inspired by a tag by Heather Hoffman from Day 5. Check out her blog, Houses Built of Cards. I love the traditional colors and images in her tag. I used similar colors, but a poinsettia instead of holly and some ribbon instead of lace.

Hi Bloggers. It's the 4th day of the "25 Days of Christmas Tags" Challenge from Tracey McNeely. I missed day 3... because we were a tiny bit busy ... we traveled to Delaware to see ... A NEW BABY!! Yep, my husband's son has a new daughter! Don't you just love snuggling with newborns! I certainly do.

So, skip ahead to day 4 of the challenge and this heart shaped tag caught my eye. It's from Melissa Bove and just gorgeous. I was inspired to use the same colors, shapes and basic design. Here's my tag for day 4 of the challenge. Check out Tracey's blog for all of the wonderful inspiration In My Creative Opinion Day 4 which came from the DT as Simon Says Stamp so you will recognize lots of the names there today.

25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 2

It's day two for 25 Days of Christmas Tags on Tracey McNeely's In My Creative Opinion Blog. Check out the fantastic tags there from her guests today from Poppystamps! They are truly amazing!

Sue McRae's tag
My Tag

I have selected a tag from Sue McRae to CASE today. I love the way the black sets off the Christmas colors! Obviously, mine is very similar to hers, except I had to create the outside section since I don't have the Poppystamp "Merry Christmas Tag."  If you head over to Sue's Blog Inky Fingers you can see exactly how she created her tag. I used Die Namics Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame and the Season's Greetings die from Simon Says Stamp for the black part of the tag. Derwent Inktense Pencils were used to water color the poinsettias from Ellen Hutson's Mistletoe and Holly set, which I embossed with Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder prior to water coloring.

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Last year I joined an inspiration and made a few tags for Christmas, following along with Tracey McNeely's blog In My Creative Opinion. This is Tracey's sixth year doing 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Yep, it started today! I was inspired by Tracey's tag today, with it's monochromatic color, sideways sentiment, and snowflakes. Here's my tag for today -
