Happy Thursday and Day 4 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! I'm so honoured to a part of this fun event - if it's new to you, everything you need to know can be found here. Today our guest and sponsor is Uniko.
Uniko sent each of the Tag Team a generous assortment of goodies to play with. Mine included a pretty snowflake stencil - I don't have one quite like it, so I knew I wanted to play with it. As a 6x6 stencil, I was able to make two tags from it. Here's the first:
For the sparkly pale blue snowflakes, I mixed white embossing paste with dry Stickles glitter. While it dried, I stamped the sentiment and used Prismacolor pencils to give the letters an ombré look.
For the second tag, I went a little more elegant:
Again, I kept the tag simple so as not to take away from the snowflakes. A sentiment and some sheer ribbon was all I needed.
While the snowflake embossing was drying, I also had time to make a third quick tag!
I had stamped two of the Let It Snow sentiments just in case my ombré colouring didn't work the first time. For the second one, I coloured the letters in more simply with a brush marker. I stamped the snowflakes above and below, then found a scrap of coordinating patterned paper.
So much inspiration, as always, on Tracey's blog today! Whether you create your own inspired tags, or decide to comment on the designers' posts, you could just win a prize from one of these sponsors!
I'll be back in a few hours with the newest
