25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 20


Happy Friday! Welcome to Day 20 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! There are not too many days left now. Today we are welcoming a new guest and sponsor, The Greetery!


As a brand new sponsor, The Greetery sent a generous package to the members of Tracey's tag team. My package included a great cardstock, stamp and die combo - Speed Tagging. And at great speed ;) here are at the tags I made: 


Let me show you the cardstock and die components of this brilliant combo: 


Please excuse the large, central watermark, but I don't want to accidentally be responsible for any papercrafting piracy. As you can see, the Speed Tagging die cuts seven tags at once, and the cardstock panels have seven beautiful tags. Then you can add as much or as little as you like to them! I added sentiments to six, and just a sparkly die cut to one. Here are a couple of close ups: 



Of course, you don't need the patterned cardstock to use the die. I made a couple of tags out of regular cardstock, just as proof: 


The other twelve tag bases are now in my bin-of-many, ready to be used. For the left one, I added a little green ink to the edges, and stamped evergreen boughs and a sentiment in the centre. For the right one, I masked off the star to stamp the "joy" in red, then used a Versamarker to stamp the star and emboss in gold embossing powder. 
The small images included in the Speed Tagging stamp set gave me pause for a moment, but here's my bonus card for today: 


This frame die cut provided an ideal solution for me - small images in the two left panels, and a two-part sentiment on the right. I added a few Perfect Pearls holly berries and star sequins as embellishments. 


If you've been checking Tracey's blog for the past few days, you will have noticed we have bonus sponsors, which mean bonus prizes! By making tags inspired by each day's designs, and/or by commenting on design posts each day, YOU could win a prize offered by one of our many sponsors! As always, there are lots of tags on Tracey's blog to inspire you. I hope you will join us!

These tags are stunning and your card turned out lovely as well - TFS your art!

I was thinking overachiever but with that die cut no wonder you have so many. All are fab. I do like the Hex shaped one in the second lot. Great job!! Super card too.

Jo Malicoat said...

What a bunch of fun and festive tags you created! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Isabel Z said...

So many amazing tags and I love how you created a card to boot!

Joyce said...

Super tags today, and love the card also. I don't know why I never thought to just use the tag die for a normal tag. Such a great idea.

Your tags are awe-mazing; cool to see how they're created. I'm especially smitten with the non-patterned versions; definitely versatile dies. And your card? Oh my! LOVE!

This combo cardstock/die is just fabulous for mass production but you also showed us that beautiful tags can be made without the card stock. Thanks so much for the gorgeous inspiration.
