25 Days of Christmas Tags

So pleased to be participating in Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags today as some of the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges teams kick off her annual feature!  It's her 8th year!!  Every day, from now through Nov. 26, she will be featuring a different company, and today is Simon Says Stamp's day!  There will be giveaways and prizes to be won!


I made 2 tags for today.  This first one is a woodland tag that features Simon's Retro Deer die.


supplies: kraft, pine green, and white cardstock, Kaisercraft mint plank dp (retired), Simon's Retro Deer die and (retired) Kelly Purkey Let It Snow sentiment, Tim Holtz Layering stencil, pine needles distress ink and Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste, MFT Stitched Tag die, snowflake die, pine ribbon and twine

I first cut my stitched tag from the plank patterned paper, then stenciled 2 trees onto it, adding in the details with glimmer paste.  The deer was cut twice and glued together for strength, then popped above my panel.  I added my sentiment and snowflakes and popped the whole thing onto a slightly larger tag, adding a twine and ribbon bow.

Here's another, featuring the Picture Book Snowman die.


supplies: white Audrey Blue, Surf Blue, Sea Glass, Schoolhouse Red, Green Leaf, Orange Peel, and black cardstock,  BoBunny green dot dp, Simon Picture Book Snowman with Be Joyful sentiment, Memory Box Holly leaves die, various snowflake dies, MFT Stitched Tag die, green ribbon, white string

There are lots of ways to win prizes - see Tracey's Blog for all the details.  Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring a $50.00 gift card if you create and post a Christmas tag inspired by one of our tags being featured today at her blog!  And we're just one of 26 companies offering fun prizes!  You can post your tags HERE.

To be eligible for a prize, you must state in your post the day and the tag you were inspired by.  If you don't have a blog of your own, you can use Instagram, using the hashtag #25daysoftags2018, and be sure to be a follower of Tracey's Instagram account.  You may create as many tags as you like as long as you follow the rules.  The more you hop along each day and participate, the more chances you have at winning.  You can also win by commenting on Tracey's blog each day, and by following each day's blog hop and commenting at each stop.  To be fair, only one comment per person per post, please.

The contest will close December 3 at 12:00 AM, and prizes will be announced on December 10 on Tracey's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope I've inspired you to play along, too, this month.  Tune in each day to Tracey's Blog to see lots and lots of fun examples!
