25 days of christmas tags 2018 - part 3

I'm back with more of the sets of tags I'm making as neighbor gifts this year... thanks to Tracey's 25 days of Christmas tags.

Meet my next three sets.

Indulge me and my delusions of grandeur for a moment. I am now thoroughly convinced that the MISTI and the Jingle all the Way stamp from Technique Tuesday were designed with ME and THIS  tag set in mind!!!!

Well, OK. Probably not. But this was SUCH fun to make. I was inspired by Kim's tag for Day 11 with Winnie and Walter, but used one of my all-time fave Christmas sets from Technique Tuesday who was up on Day 13. And I even used up some more PP by cutting a second layer for the "to" "from" area ;)

jingle bells, buttons, ribbon

For Day 7 with Birchpress (whose product I do not own unfortunately) I was totally inspired by Desiree's color choices for her layered ornament. I couldn't get it out of my head, but didn't know how I could recreate that look with product I own. So I couldn't really, but I came up with this.



Die cut the layers from kraft, white, silver and gold and then dry embossed all but the kraft (which has to "to" "from" area on the back). They are really cool IRL so I left a sentiment off to keep the clean look. Made these smaller tags for the set too. Great little snowflake die in that Little B set.

For Day 15 with STAMPlorations, I absolutely loved Carol's die cut tags and had to CASE them of course. Wish my photos were as gorgeous as hers!

I think they'll look so pretty on kraft gift wrap. Keeping them neutral lets the shape speak for itself. Thanks for the idea Carol.

I have more. Still happy Tracey's challenge spurred me to create my neighbor gifts for Christmas in November, though I'm behind the eight ball prepping for our turkey feast on Sunday!

OHMYSTARS! You've taken my breath away with this bevy of beautiful tags, Maria! The TT set was definitely 'made for you'; your tags are wonderful (off to check out this stamp as soon as I'm done commenting. I believe you've 'enabled' *grin*)! The faceted ornament are sensational! And the tags using STAMPlorations dies..love, love and LOVE! I spy a couple more CUTplorations I need to add to my collection! So honoured to have sparked inspiration for these gems! Thrilled that you're playing tag with us at the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!
