Hello, I have been really enjoying looking at all the tags for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags by the fabulous Tracey McNeely and her crew, and finally had some time today to join in the fun. It happens to be day 15 (better late than never) but my inspiration for my tags came from Day 6. My inspiration was from a few different tags from that day. First, I like the look of the double tag from both Vicki and Shirley’s tags. Next, I found a reindeer stamp as I thought Shirley’s was so adorable. Finally, I combined that idea with the word background of Sanna’s tag.
I had a happy accident when I was stamping. I sponged all my backgrounds using Broken China for the sky. Then after I had stamped my first reindeer I accidentally smudged it with my fingers. I decided to see what would happen if I continued to smudge the rest and I think they came out great.
Details: Tags, scalloped die, and background stencil are MFT, the scalloped edge is a SU punch. The reindeer stamp is a block stamp from Recollections. The hills are made from a Lawn Fawn die. The bows are from Paper Smooches. The sentiment is Verve.
If you haven’t checked out the 25 days of Christmas Tags I highly recommend it. So much talent and inspiration.

You joined in on day 15 and I petered out about day 12. I don’t use tags but got caught up in the designs of all those wonderful companies and designers. These tags are wonderful, Nancy, especially since you combined a number of ideas to make them your own.
