Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop

Happy Boxing Day!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
We had a great day -- which included having friends and family over for supper.

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

This month's challenge is this fabulous inspirational photo:


Isn't it gorgeous?
I just love it!
 When I first saw it, I immediately thought of my Tinsel & Tags stamps
and decided to make some tags using them.


For each tag, I used the Tinsel and Tags stamps,
stamped in versafine onyx black and diecut with the round tag that came with the kit.
Inspired by the photo, however, I decided to add a little bit to each tag with diecuts.


I stamped the deer onto a coordinating diecut in Delicata Golden Glitz and added
the sprig and berries.


Here, I added the green boughs and red flower (with dimensional adhesive).


Here, I stamped the house onto the coordinating diecut
and added the sprigs and flower.


On this one, I coloured in the snowman stamp using Zig Clear Colour markers,
avoiding the scarf on the stamp.
I tied on some baker's twine for a scarf.

And Sage also make a couple of tags for the blog hop,
using the same stamp set/die, but she did hers in red:


She felt that the words didn't show up well enough,
so she wrote them in in black.
Didn't she do a wonderful job?

Before you go, I just wanted to invite you back to visit tomorrow (December 27th),
as I'm having a celebration (including prizes!) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of my blog!

 

Thanks for looking!

Your tags and Sage's tags are wonderful. I love how the same inspiration and same stamps and die result in similar yet different tags.

These are great tags Leigh. I make most of my cards and tags right after Christmas for the next year. I find I am most inspired by this years cards & tags and more motivated right now to make them.

Your tags are wonderful, Leigh~ I made my card a few days ago knowing that I would be away for the holiday. After seeing your tags, I wish that I had taken the time to add the die cuts which make your tags stand out!
