25 Tags of Christmas event


I am SO excited to be joining the talented Tracey McNeely today along with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, for her annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Check out her blog here and pop on over to Pinterest to see the previous years' installments of this fun event. I hope you enjoy all the tag eye candy and are inspired! 

Here's the super fun news- PRIZES!! That's right! Pop on over to Tracey's blog for more details but let's just say there are goodies from:

I'm offering up a chance to win here on my blog so comment on this post and I'll draw one random winner on November 27th to be added to the big draw prize that Tracey is doing on November 28. Sounds like a good deal to me! 


For my trio of tags I die cut watercolor paper, heat embossed the snowflakes in white, and then watercolored over top with pearlescent watercolors. The 'to' and 'from' are stamped in black on vellum and popped up using clear foam tape (or not so clear in this case...you can see it but I don't think it distracts at all). Some metallic thread, a few sequins, glittery paper and more metallic string finish them off.  A VERY shimmery and elegant end result. It's Christmas right? There's nothing wrong with a whole lotta' bling during the holidays, especially when it comes to jazzing up a special gift! 

Don't forget to comment and thanks so much for stopping in today!

  11. At first glance, I thought you had used leather to make your tags! The watercolor paper with shimmery finish really gives your tags a lot of texture and shine. Very pretty!
