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!

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! ;-) 

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.

  20. Hi Marge, It's 3.30 am here, I know I have seen this before and am getting really confused but then again I am sooo tired so maybe it is me right? No, after about 10 min. I finally get it, (remember I haven't had any sleep) you posted this back in November and then posted it just now in error right? I am not going crazy LOL, Well at least it gives me a chance to say hi, it's probably morning there so I will say enjoy the rest of your weekend, love ya, hugs
