25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi all and welcome to the start of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by the fabulous Tracey McNeeley aka In My Creative Opinion ! This is the 8th year that Tracey has hosted this event and Simon Says Stamp is thrilled to get the ball rolling on Day 1!


Each day up to November 25th there will be a different company sponsoring with fabulous crafty give aways and prizes to be won PLUS the company design teams will be joining in with lots of gorgeous Christmas Tags for our inspiration!


By joining in with the event YOU could win a $50 Gift Voucher to Simon Says Stamp! How awesome is that! ;-) 




This is the third year I think that I've been asked to join in on the behalf of Simon Says Stamp and your can see I've used possibly my favourite tag die Stitched Dress Up Tag die.  I cut out another tag in red and start adding the dots and wished I had chosen another die but it's always worth it even though a bit time consuming.

I added a bit of interest using the Simon says Stamp Scallop Stitched border, you could layer it  under the dots to give an impression of red dots certainly would speed things up why didn't I think of that then!

I decided to make a wreath using the the pine needles from the Simon says Stamp Pine Needles Wreath die this way I could make what size I like. I then added the Simon says Stamp Holly Fanfare for my Holly. Finally the Ornate Ornaments were on my desk with the perfect sentiment on, I would like add I stamped it first before layering my wreath.

The bit of ribbon is out of my ribbon box I should say trunk since I'm alway picking up ribbon and people keep giving me theirs!

I always panic when I see how everyone dressed their photo, so I quickly found some wrapping paper and empty my stock cubes which are now rolling around my corner carousel where my tins a packet live.

Love this tag. It is so clean and pretty.

Nelya said...

I’m a sucker for tags! And I agree 👆🏼, it’s nice and clean. I love that the red details are on top, not in the background itself. Otherwise it would be too busy and clash with the wreath.

Nandini said...

Love the pretty wreath and the red polka dots at the top.

Cathy Lillie said...

Lovely tag! The red polka dots and the scalloped trim are so pretty on the topper. They're such a nice accent to the wreath.
