Hello and welcome to day 2 of the 12 days of Tags collaboration!!
Over the next 12 days, my friend Amanda over at Twiddler’s Nook and I are going to share different Christmas tag ideas with you. We’re hoping to inspire you to spice up your gift wrapping this year. Be sure to check out both blogs and leave comments for a chance to win at the end of our 12 days.
Amanda and I are giving away 2 prizes each. A gift certificate for $15 to Newton’s Nook, $15 to Trinity Stamps and we’ve both created loaded envelopes with handmade goodies from us! We will each choose an Instagram commenter and a blog commenter. That’s a chance at 1 of 4 prizes! Comment each day because you never know which day will be the lucky one.
Todays tags were ones I KNEW I was going to have to make when I saw this adorable set released from Honey Bee Stamps this year. So perfect! I always do a special tag for my kids’ Santa gifts, and these will be the ticket for 2019!
I kept the design simple, but really love how they turned out. I used the Santa Express 6×8 stamp set for these tags. It has a dozen absolutely adorable hand lettered sentiments for “From Santa” tags. I picked a few of my favorites, although I am pretty sure I will be using them all at some point this month!! All the designs were heat embossed onto red cardstock using WOW Opaque Bright White ultra fine detail embossing powder. This tends to be my go to for white embossing.
I paired the images them with the Scallop Circle Gift Tag from Honey Bee Stamps as well. I love all the layers this die set provides, especially that dotted outline on the shadow circle! I used the smallest circle to die cut the images, cutting the shadow circle out of metallic gold cardstock, and lastly cutting the scalloped base out of white cardstock. I adhered them all together and then finished them off with some metallic gold thread.
That wraps up my post for today. Be sure to leave a comment both here and over at Twiddler’s Nook , and then if you are still with us, hop on over to Amanda’s and my Instagram accounts for even more chances to win a prize!!
