25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day #19

This is the first year that I have come across this - but it sounds like a pretty good idea to join in - and get my Christmas tags done at the same time!!

It is hosted by Tracey McNeely and you will find the main hop post here

Just had a look at Day 19 and there are so many tags that I could choose to CASE or be inspired by... so first of all there is Kimber McGray with this shaker card:



I used a circular shaker container with Snowmen paper behind it. The sentiment is a magazine freebie stamp and I added a resin snowman.





I was also inspired by Marcia Dehn- Nix  on Day 19 - here are her tags:

    

Of course I used the Tonic penguins that I was so pleased to win the other day.



I also used googly eyes, sentiments from Little Claire and the stocking which is a die from last year's Tattered Lace Advent Calendar.

I am finally up to date - I am posting Tag #18 before Day 19 has been posted!!
My plan is to have a go at a felt tag as featured by Miriam Prantner on Day 18.
However...this is a work in progress...so my tag in this post is as follows:



I was inspired by Kaja Vezensec  on Day 10 - here is her tag:

    

I used the Die-namics Cross Stitch Tag die to make my tag and embroidered this with a snowflake in different blues. I added a penguin - die cut from the Tonic set I won a little while ago.

I am still catching up but I am almost there...here is my tag #17





I was inspired by Kim Heggins  on Day 17 - here is her tag:

    

I started with a Kraft base and used Stampin Up snowflake stamps to stamp this.
I added sparkly washi across the bottom and a sprinkling of sequins. Finally I added some gold ribbon...

I was inspired by Carly Minner  and Sandy Allnock on Day 16 - here are their tags:

    

I made a whole plethora of small sparkly snowflake tags...the snowflakes were embossed with a sparkly green embossing powder.




My second tag features a sparkly green cardstock Christmas tree window (unbranded die) over a snowman digi from Ike's Art coloured with Promarkers.

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Tag #15

I was inspired by Joyce on Day 15 - in fact I have become Joyce's newest follower!
This was her tag:


  I started with a paper from a 12 by 12 paper pad from The Works.

I added the trees (Tin Holtz Die) and the deer - Die-namics Deer Love.



In actual fact I made a lot of these tags for my Mum and she has already used them. At this time of year she prepares harvest baskets for the family containing jams, jellies, chutneys and pickles (and a few little extras). Early Christmas Gifts!



She wanted something 'spiky and icy' to go with this blue tissue - and was very pleased with what I did...



I was also inspired by  Monica Skinner on Day 15 and here is her tag:



I had that Stamplorations die but my tag was obviously bigger:



I stamped the background with a Hero Arts stamp in Garden Green. I then added the trees die cut it sparkly green cardstock and then added a few embellishments.
