25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 21

Happy weekend, and welcome to Day 21 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! Today we have Studio Katia as guest and sponsor. 


Studio Katia is a Canadian company, yay! My tags are appropriately snowy: 


When I saw some of the tag designers use these cute snowmen stamps last year, I knew they had to come and live at my house, too. This one is quick and easy to colour, with his carrot nose, earmuffs, and just a little shading. For the tag base, I blended some distress oxide ink down to the snowy horizon, then added some splatters of perfect pearls in water. Once that dried, I added the tree and embossed it in verdigris embossing powder - I think this is my very favourite, but please don't tell all my other ones. ;) The snowman is standing on a drift of Stickles. 


My next two tags are quick and simple: 


They are also examples of my motto, THEY'RE JUST TAGS. When I adhered the white backing to the coloured fronts, I didn't get them perfectly lined up. It's particularly obvious on the deep purple tag. That's when it's good to remember it's a tag, glanced at mostly to see who the gift belongs to! ;) The teal one (upcycled from an old school notebook - former teacher here!) is embossed in white with flecks of gold, while the purple is shiny in silver. 
Today's card: 



I'm not sure this was the most brilliant choice to ink up after almost a solid month of daily crafting :D but I hadn't used this cute stamp yet! It's watercolored with Zig markers. I used a glitter brush marker to blend some of the areas for a little extra shimmer. And since I have prior experience with watercolouring running with Stickle use, I chose a white glaze pen to add a little shine and dimension to the bone and hat trims. 
Remember to visit Tracey's blog to see the inspiration from Studio Katia designers and my tag teammates! You can win one of the many prizes on offer by commenting on designers' posts, or by creating your own tag inspired by one of today's projects. Hope you'll join us!

Super cute snowman tag, I like your idea of recycling book covers for your tags. Something I have rarely used is my snowflake stamp and die set from SU more years than I want to think. Great background for your snowman. Love your card too. you made a "dog" card? wow. your cat stamps are jealous.

I love the background on your tag, and that snowman is about the cutest thing ever. LOVE your wonderful inspiration each day, Lindsey. You've inspired several of my tags and i thank you for sharing your talents.
Blessings!

Your tags are wonderful, especially that one with the snowman. But, I think the show stealer (and heart stealer) is the card. I love seeing those cats and dogs put aside their differences for the pawlidays.

Wonderful projects! I love the blue background on the snowman tag!

I love that 1st tag- so beautiful. It isn't just a tag, is it? If I received it, I'd make it into a card- upcycle! I totally get the "it's just a tag" approach because for most gifts,they are recycled.

Ashley Cortez said...

These are some beautiful tags and a adorable card everything about them is just amazing and what you did on them really makes them stand out even more, the sentiment on your card goes with those adorable images perfectly

Who would dare tell the other tags that the Snowman was your favorite? Ha ha! I love that. It is a cute tag and I love the background and lovely pinpoint die. Cute little snowflake tags and a great card. Love the little paw prints on the gift. [Bunny]

Reverse-order comment-catch-up time! Of course, you know I LOVE your snowman and that perfect little forest setting. Snowflakes are beautiful; didn't even notice the not-lined up you mentioned. Your Pawlidays card: absolutely smitten! This was a first outing for my set, too. White glaze pen added to my list...
