Christmas Tags

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying the weekend and have something nice planned for your Sunday. We are back at Christmas Card Challenges today for another 'anything goes' challenge and this time I decided to make some tags.

For the first tags I used my new My Favorite Things Tag Builder 2 die set and made two of them with a positive and a negative cut

For this one I used a Papertrey Ink Tag Sale 4 die and the Framed Out #9 stamps to make the wreath. Some red pearls and glitter finished it off.

On this one I used the MFT Tag again along with a cat image from my new Mama Elephant Three Amigos stamp set, and I added a Christmas greeting.

The next 2 tags used the PTI Tag sale 3 die along with the Polka Dot Parade # 9 stamps and die in different colours, with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted which I stamped and embossed.

This next one also uses Tag Sale 3 but with a stamp from the 2009 Holiday Tag Collection and a sentiment from WPlus9 Pretty Patches: Tree

This one used PTI Tag Sale #8 and a stamp and die from WPlus9 Pretty Patches:Tree. I cut the heart from red card and used Wink of Stella to give some sparkle.

The final two were again from the MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 2 set but this time used the candy cane in positive and negative forms, along with sentiments from PTI Think Big Favorites #21.

Here they all are grouped together:-

I love that the Tag Builder Blueprints dies can be mixed and matched for different tops and bottoms, and that, although the set comes with Christmas images, you can use the basic tags for any occasion. They are smaller than the PTI Tag Sale dies which makes them better for smaller gifts but the the Tag Sale dies do have a bit more impact. I really enjoyed having a sort through all my supplies and having a fun hour putting these together, and I might do the same thing with some non holiday sets so I have some tags on hand for birthdays and other occasions.

Why not pop over to the Christmas Card Challenge blog to see what my talented Design Team mates have to inspire you with this week.

  12. Hello Carol. What a great collection of Christmas tags! Each one of them is unique on their own and have their little cuteness to it. I am totally inspired to make a set of tags now, probably not Christmas, but Birthday. I have a handful of birthdays coming up so I think I'll be doing that. Have a wonderful week!

And then confidently repeat the same thing as down and down I scrolled!! Thank you for all the amazing inspiration, the additions to my Wish Book, and for playing again in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Happy Easter to you both and your family!! Hugs, Darnell
