25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 22


It's Day 22 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags — have you been keeping up? πŸ˜‰ Today's sponsor and guest is STAMPlorations


When I was deciding what to make for today, I realized I hadn't been using up any bits of patterned paper with my tags lately! So I pulled out a die and got to work. 



Other than a bit fiddly when inlaying the die cuts, these were reasonably quick and easy to make. Of course I couldn't let the offcuts go to waste, so now I have a set of four. I wasn't able to keep track of all the teeny bits of patterned paper, so I used some green cardstock to back the sentiment on the plaid tag, and red for the tiny spots on the polka dot tag. (I at least found the oval for the centre of the 'o'.)
Did I stop there? Of course not. 


My original idea using this die was to make a white on white scene, as I've seen a number of designers do with great success during Tracey's tagstravaganza. Oops. πŸ˜‚ Turned into a night scene with a black silhouette. Strange how these things happen. Another time.
There is so much inspiration from the STAMPlorations designers today! Be sure to check out Tracey's page, leave some comments, and maybe even grab a few ideas for tags of your own!

Fantastic way to use the reverse(negative) die on your tag. Very fun and festive. Oh I love the blue sky tag - swoon!

You've given us some great ideas. Love using the die cuts to create multiples tags, and your little night scene is adorable.

Great tags! I like how you used both the positive and negative pieces from you die cut sentiment. Also really like the black border village against the night sky. ❤️
