25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019...Day 17



Welcome to Day 17 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.  If you are arriving for the first time, all the details and the link up can be found HERE.






Our sponsor for Day 17 is Pretty Pink Posh.


I used stamps from Pretty Pink Posh Penguin Pals.  All of these penguins are so darling.  I tried to use as many of them as I could for my tags.




Look at these two adorable best friends hanging out on the Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Circle Tags.

Anyone up for a penguin skating party?



The center part of the nested Scalloped Circle Tags has a cute little flap for a window.

CASology Week #356...Faith





Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is FAITH.  I thought of dogs, and how they are always faithful friends.  I know my dog is!  I used this as an opportunity to add to my stash of pet sympathy cards--always good to have around, as I never feel like making them when there is a specific dog in need.

I kept my card really simple with 1 image, and simple sentiment and a bit of die cut stitching over the lower third of my card.







Now it's your turn.  How does FAITH inspire you?


As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

I hope you play along this week.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the our Guest Designer  and the CASology design team.  Our sponsor this week is STAMPlorations.

25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019...Day 16



Welcome to Day 16 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.  If you are arriving for the first time, all the details and the link up can be found HERE.




Our sponsor for Day16 is Waffle Flower.




I fell in love with these sweet mice in the Happy Fall and Thankful Mouse stamp sets.  Aren't they darling?  They make such a cute pair.




I have these mice enjoying their cocoa over a camp fire on my next tag.




And, here is a card to add to my stash.  I am not sure how I'll use this card, so will add a sentiment later.  Actually, for some reason, I am really loving this card, and may not ever send this one out.

25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019...Day 15



Welcome to Day 15 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.  If you are arriving for the first time, all the details and the link up can be found HERE.






Our sponsor for Day 15 is Concord & 9th.




I loved the classic look of these beautiful Holiday Turnabout Bundle products from Concord & 9th, and so chose classic colors and classic designs for my tags.




Here is a close up of the two layer tag.




I love the fun shape of this tag, and the font of the die cut sentiment.




Not sure if I love or hate this one.....I sandwiched a whole bunch of die cut leaves in between 2 layers of my scalloped square tag.  It's a lot.  That's all I will say.



And, while I had all my supplies out, a card to add to my holiday stash.

I used stamps from Baked with Love to create both of my tags.  It's a small stamp set with big possibilities.

25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019...Day 13



Welcome to Day 13 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.  If you are arriving for the first time, all the details and the link up can be found HERE.





We are at the halfway mark! I hope you are all having fun!

Those of you who have played along in past years know that at the end of the event there is a linkup for one more prize--The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019 Superstar!


There is a special prize for one lucky person who has completed all 26 days of the challenge accurately! This year Design Team member Kim Heggins has made a special superstar prize! Kim is a very talented sewer and has an Etsy shop at Running Stitch Design, selling so many of her fabulous handmade bags. Definitely worth checking out! Here is the prize she has made for this year's winner. A cute winter theme makeup bag!






Our sponsor for Day 13 is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.


Just for today, I am going to be taking a break from Christmas.  Not a break from tags, but just from Christmas.  If you are Jewish, December is a pretty BORING month.  Since our sponsor for today is CAS-ual Fridays stamps, and they have some of the best Chanukah stamps around, I decided to have a little Hanukah party on my blog.  

Welcome to my Hanukkah party!!


Starting us off is a trio of tags using dies from Tag Buddies, 8 Happy Nights stamps, and Hanukkah Fri-Dies.  





Here is a close up of the two tags with the Star of David die cuts from Hanukkah Fri-Dies.  This die cuts a bunch of shapes that all nest together.  I cut once from dark blue and once from white, and just nested them using alternating colors.




I used silver embossing powder to emboss one of the images from 8 Happy Nights stamps.  I really love how this stamp used words to form the shape of a menorah, which is the thing with candles that we light each of the 8 nights of Chanukah.




These two tags focus on the Dreidel, which is a little top that children can spin.  There are 4 sides, and a Hebrew letter on each side.




On this tag, I heat embossed the dreidels in silver.




This tag has a little shaker, and I stamped the words to the dreidel song in light colored ink to form the background.




I made this sweet trio of tags using the smallest die Tag Buddies and stamps from Spin the Dreidel.




Last of all, a pair of cards using stamps from Spin the Dreidel.






I hope you have had fun at my little Chanukah/Hanukah/Hannukkah party.  Why are there so many spellings of the word Chanukah/Hanukah/Hannukkah you might ask?  I think it is because it is a translation of a Hebrew word which uses characters and sounds from the Hebrew alphabet that have no counterpart in the Modern English Alphabet.  So, relax and enjoy the fact that you can never really misspell the word Chanukah/Hanukah/Hannukkah.
