25 Tags of Christmas





Tracey McNeeley has a fabulous special she does each year called the 25 days of Christmas. This year she asked the design team at StampNation if we wanted to play along in her challenge.  Of course I said YES!  I love making tags for Christmas gifts.  Sometimes I will even hang tags I've made on our Christmas tree as decorations.


Here is my first tag.


I was so inspired I couldn't stop at just one, so I made a couple more and filmed the video for you!

***Note- If you are reading this post in an email or reader you may need to visit my blog to view the video.  


The second tag is so quick and easy to make!


Here is a close-up, so you can see the shimmer of that Delicata ink.



To make the blog hop even more fun Tracey has prizes and giveaways and she is letting me get in on the fun.  Leave a comment here by November 26th for a chance to win, then be sure to check out Tracey's blog for even more chances to win a prize from one of her fabulous sponsors.

Lovely tags! That's such a pretty stencil.

I'm not sure if it was just on my end, but I couldn't get any sound on your video.

Karen King said...

Never mind - the sound issue was just on my end!

Such beautiful tags, Heather! I appreciate the time you took to do the video, as I need more confidence with both distress inks and embossing paste, and you make them look easy. I have the Delicata ink on order, and I just know I'm going to squeal the first time I use it!
