25 Days of Christmas Tags : Pretty Pink Posh


Hi everyone and welcome to the 12th day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by the fabulous Tracey McNeeley aka In My Creative Opinion ! Today, Pretty Pink Posh designers are showcasing beautiful tags using Pretty Pink Posh products.
Here are my tags featuring Stitched Ornaments Dies set and other new release items.



I started by diecutting 140lb Cold Pressed Watercolor paper using Stitched Ornaments Dies . I chose this paper because it is thick enough to be used as tags and I loved the white color and texture from it.
For each tag, I will share details briefly.

< Tag 1 >


Tag hole : Neenah Texture Red
Pine Sprigs were cut from the same 140lb Cold Pressed Watercolor paper. Holly leaf was heat embossed in gold and watercolored.
Small sentiment is from Caroling Critters set.


< Tag 2 >



Tag hole : Simon Copper Glitter Paper
Stamped  Sparkle Dot Partterns 1 using Distress Ink Antique Linen and adhered Holiday Jewels Mix and Metallic Gold Jewels. Sentiment from Caroling Critters set.

< Tag 3 > 



Tag hole : Simon Aqua Glitter Paper
Stamped  Sparkle Dot Partterns 1 using Distress Ink Antique Linen and adhered Starry Sky Jewels and Midnight Black Jewels. Added a Pine Sprig with Distress Dry Glitter on it.




< Tag 4 > 



Tag hole : Simon Copper Glitter Paper.
Stamped snowflakes from Holiday Greetings set and Winter Friends set using various dye inks.
Embellished with Metallic Gold Jewels.



So now I finished my four tags.
Thanks for your visiting and Have a great day!

Here are my cards for challenge inspiration.
I used Glitter Flurries Washitape from Altenew.



For my first card, I stamped sentiments ftom Thanks and Leaves Stamp set which is a part of November Simon Kit on A2 sized 80lb Neenah White paper.


For my front panel, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Texture White into A2 size, then cut a large circle using a circle die. I added splatters of violet and Metallic gold inks over the two panels.


After I foam mounted the front onto my sentiment panel, I adhered cut pices of Glitter Flurries Washitape to make bouquets on top and bottom. Before this I had adhered Glitter Flurries Washitape onto white cardstock, and fussy cut the images.

Here's my second card which is very easy and can be made quickly.


I simply adhered Glitter Flurries Washitape onto white cardstock, and I diecut it using Simon Basic Rectangle Dies. Sentiment is from Thanks and Leaves Stamp set, and I added visual gold accent with Simon's Copper Glitter Paper along the upper and lower lines of sentiment panel.


I embellished my card with more Glitter Flurries Washitape cuts and gold metallic sequins.

So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting

25 Days of Christmas Tags - Simon Says Stamp


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!

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



I'm in love with the cute Critter Sweaters Stamp and  Critter Sweaters Dies, these days. The biggest bear dies just looks perfect for stand alone tag, isn't it?



For my first tag , I cut papers from Knit Picky 6×6 and Rainbow Christmas using Stitched Dress Up Tag Dies, then I assembled the tag.
 I stamped a sentiment from Critter Sweaters Stamp, and adhered little bunnies in sweaters I made using Critter Sweaters Stamp and  Critter Sweaters Dies. Before adhering bunnies, I put small hill made with Knit Picky Fall 6×6 and Wavy Scallop Stitches dies.



For my secon tag, I made two layers of big bear diecuts using Critter Sweaters Stamp and  Critter Sweaters Diespunched a hole on top, then inserted an eyelet .



The sweater patterns were heat embossed in white on red colored Neenah Texture Cardstock. I added Ivory Jewels for embellishment. As you can see in the first picture, I stamped a sentiment on the back layer.



I used various ribbons, yarns, twines, and a Tiny Jingle Brad in my stash to embellish my tags.
