It's that time of year! Once again, November brings Tracey McNeely's annual event, 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Tracey gathers together companies and designers from around the stamp and card making world for almost a month of incredible tag making! Take a look at this year's participating companies, who are incidentally also offering amazing prizes:
Speaking of prizes, here is how you can be in the running to win one:
Prizes will be drawn from any or all of these things...
- Comment on the posts each day on what you saw that inspires you.
- Follow the blog hop and comment along the way.
- Participate by creating your own tags. The rules for participating are simple, you must create a Christmas tag inspired by a tag you see during the event and you must state in your post (blog, IG, etc.) the day and the tag you were inspired by. Enter as many tags as you like.
As for me, I'm again part of Tracey's design team! Joining me are Carol Mayne, Kim Heggins and Joyce Mehrberg.
Today's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp!
Simon Says Stamp sent the design team some fun goodies to play with... so play with them I did. ;)
I am quite taken with this cute retro Santa face! I knew right away he'd have to feature on my tag. He's stamped and embossed, coloured with Copics and fussy-cut. Then I used some of the smaller images from the same set to add a snowy white-embossed background to my dark red tag. On top, I added the sentiment in black ink and sparkly embossing powder. It shows up more in real life than in the photo, but I like the way it doesn't overshadow Santa.
And now it's your turn! Visit tag central at Tracey's blog, comment on the tags you see, and/or make your own! You'll be getting ready for Christmas and adding to your chance of winning a prize!
P.S. Another fun event begins today, and that is Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Colouring Challenge! After committing to colouring for an entire month twice, I am making myself no promises this time - but cute little Santa counts for Day One's colouring!
