25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 17 with Jillibean

Day 17 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags is sponsored by Jillibean Soup.
I noticed there were a lot of shaker tags in so many fun shapes and perfect size for tags.
I was inspired by the tag from Kimber McGray, she had a snowglobe with a snowman family inside.
this is  Winter Snowglobe from Papertrey.
Heart Hugs, friends!

Twelve Days of Tags with Loll & Friends ~ Day 3

I had the same stencil that Loll used, I ran a versamark ink over the stencil then white embossed it.
I sponged some DO inks over the top.  I die cut my word and stamped and embossed "wishes".

Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends ~ Day 4

 Can you believe all the wonderful and beautiful inspiration over at the 
Between the 12 Tags with Loll and the 25 Tags with Tracey, I was getting confused what I had done and what I hadn't..LOL!!  so I totally missed a few days with Loll, so this is for Day 4.
smooshing, die cutting, sponging, stamping, embossing!

12 Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends ~ 10

I am going back and catching up on a couple of days I missed...Day 10 was a beautiful tag that Loll made; the blue colors and snowflakes were so striking!
I scribbled some markers on a piece of saran wrap and smooshed it onto my watercolor tag.
I die cut the Poppy stamp: Simple Snowflake Sash three times, twice with white cardstock and the top one with some glittery paper. I white embossed the sentiment and also added some white acrylic paint splatters.

Thanks for dropping by, hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!

Heart Hugs, friends!

Day 12 of the Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends

I loved Loll's beautiful poinsettia, I used W Plus 9 Christmas Rose and gold embossed it and used zig water colors, and I splattered with some gold Heidi Swapp color shine.
the sentiment is also gold embossed.
This is not the end for me, I have a few other catch up tags to post, but I loved doing everyone of these, the inspiration was just outstanding!  Thank you Loll for putting together the Twelve Tags of Christmas with your friends!  I loved it!
Heart Hugs, friends!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 18 Avery Elle

What a great sentiment to have on a tag with a gift!  This stamp comes with the Avery Elle set Holiday Bouquet that Amy Kolling used for the 18th Day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags
I used zigs to water color the image and a PTI die called Quilted tag.

Day 15 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags

I loved all the snowflakes...either dry embossed or with powder.  I had a NBUS die from Poppy stamps called Simple Snowflake Sash and ran it through the machine to make the impression.
this is a cross between Cornelia's tag and Kimberly's tag:

Day 16 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags

I do not have any of the stamps they used or even any Christmas stamps from EH, but I was inspired by all the holly that many used.
I was at my BFF's house for less than 24 hours, but managed to play and make a few things.  
The holly is from a stamp set she has called Cutaway Tags: Winter..a PTI stamp and GASP I do NOT own it! I loved Tracey's holly and the big sentiment!
