3. Robins cut in red and brown dot paper with die from Tattered Lace Advent calendar a couple of years ago.

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 26 Bonus Day

I came across this for the first time last year - and thoroughly enjoyed it  - and when it came to Christmas I had more than enough tags made!!

It is hosted by Tracey McNeely and you will find the main hop post here
She works really hard to organise this hop and secures many sponsors!

 Each day I will CASE or be inspired by at least one tag...!

I would like to thank everyone who has visited my blog - especially those of you who have become followers, and those who have left comments!

Today is Day 26 and the bonus day... but these may not be my final tags - I may still make a few more tags when I look back at the super inspiration over the last 25 days!!

This is my basket of tags so far:



Day Twenty Six showcases Hello Bluebird.

Once again I will have to look in my stash for something similar...


I am inspired by Susie Lessard, on Day Twenty Six with this lovely tag!

  


Here are my two based on these tags...



I die cut tiny pink tags from a scrap of card with a Tonic die.
I stamped the sentiment with black Versafine using a stamp from an unbranded set.
I added shapes cut in silver sparkly card using Sissix Tim Holtz dies 'Festive Greens'.
Finally I added pink and white twine and a scatter of tiny pink pearls.

Day Twenty Five showcases Honey Bee Stamps.


Once again I will have to look in my stash for something similar...


Anyway once again I have been inspired by Joyce, this time on Day Twenty Five!

  


Love the puns!!


Here is my set based on these tags...




I was given these little foam gnomes by a friend and I was wondering how I might use them!
I printed the words on the computer and die cut the tags and the banners.
I then added various sparkly embellishments and gems...

This one has a die cut tree - cut with a magazine freebie die:



This one has a Vera Lane digi (Pretty little houses collage sheet):



This one has glitter wooden deer (The Works):




This one has shimmer dome stickers (docrafts Papermania):

The current challenge at the Butterfly Challenge is simply to add a fairy, gnome, elf, imp or pixie - so I am going toadd my tags there too...

Day Twenty Four showcases Heffy Doodle.

Once again I will have to look in my stash for something similar...but there are definitely some things here on my wishlist - and they are in the UK!!


Anyway this is one of Tracey's lovely tags on Day Twenty Four!

  

I couldn't resist it!!
Here are my set based on this tag...






The sentiment is one I had on my computer from Sassy Studio Designs in 2015! 
I printed it in various sizes and die cut the tags so the sentiment was placed differently on the tags. I masked the sentiments and overstamped with snowman elements from
 Stampin Up's Cold Play using black, orange and red inks.
Finally I added the snowman ribbon.

Day Twenty Three showcases Jillibean Soup.

Once again I will have to look in my stash for something similar...


Anyway here is Joyce's lovely tag on Day Twenty Three!
Just had to CASE this!!

  


Here is my version:


I started by cutting a tag from white card and stamping the sentiment at the bottom with black Versafine (stamp from Stampin Up's Warm Words).
I then found paper in my scraps to cut the trees - a magazine freebie die.
Finally I added the twine...

Anyway these are Maryam Perez's lovely tags on Day Twenty Three!

  

I decided to CASE the one on the left...
what caught my eye first was the deer paper on the back of the tag.
I have something similar... a paper from Decosses Dynamite Doodles.



I found some 'dotty' paper in my scraps to cut trees - a magazine freebie die.
The sentiment is a Tattered Lace die, cut in silver and added to blue card.
Finally I added sequins, Santa metal embellishments and ribbon.

Day Twenty Two showcases Birch Press Design as sponsor.
Last year I was lucky enough to win a voucher to Birch Press and now I have their lovely Issa Snowflake layered dies!

Anyway these are Carol's super tags using layered dies on Day Twenty Two!

  

I decided to use my layered dies to make a set of different shaped tags too...

Using a variety of cards from sparkly white to silver to blues I die cut the three dies - then split the shapes up to make 3 tags. I added each set to a blue backing piece stamped with a sentiment (from an unbranded stamp sets or magazine freebie) and then added ribbon.
