25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 16


Day 16 of Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, and today our sponsor is Ellen Hutson


I may have gotten a little carried away. :) 


My first thought was to use something from Homespun Holiday for a tag: 


I stencilled a brick background as a fireplace for my stocking — green, since my brick would have clashed with a red one. I used a snow marker to make a puffy cuff and pompoms. 
I couldn't leave out my all time favourite Essentials by Ellen stamp!


I do love this Santa! I kept the tag simple, but did add some shine to Santa's hat and whiskers. 


Finally, I made a simple tag using a tiny Christmas tree from the new Bear Ware 2 and a watercolour powder background:


I thought this little Christmas tree would make a perfect focal point for a simple tag. I did consider putting it in the arms of the bear from All Inside, but it would have covered his face. :D

Love the naughty/nice tag.
I'm more for snarky than
for too much goo.
thanks for sharing.

All of these are so cute. I'm really starting to love the way tags free you to do as simple or complicated as you like. Santa in shades -- awesome.

All three of your tags look great! I have the stamp sets you used for your tags. I love Santa in the sunglasses, too! I love to use it with the sentiment you used and the one that says, "Saw that. -Santa" They're both so much fun!
