25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018...Day 8




Welcome to Day 8 of The 25 Tags of Christmas Tags 2018.  If you are just arriving for the first time, all the details and the linkup can be found HERE.



Our sponsor for Day 8 is Uniko.



I fell in love with this modern, graphic looking Christmas tree in a stamp set called Rustic Christmas.

First, I used that Christmas tree in a very traditional way, to make a wine bottle tag.  I masked off the right side of the wine bottle tag and sponged the left side with a few different shades of green Distress Ink.  Then, I stamped the Christmas Tree over the sponged area, careful to make sure that some of the tree ran off of both sides of the green.  I stamped the sentiment in red ink on a scrap, and used foam tape to pop it up.



I also had fun using that Christmas tree as more of an abstract graphic element and just stamped a few patterns.



This is still a Christmas tag, but I think that if you didn't know it was a tree stamped in multiple colors, you couldn't guess it from this tag.



One more just for fun, featuring those tiny birds in red.



Please head over to Tracey's blog for more information on how you can join in on the fun and get a chance to win a prize.


Thanks for Visiting

  15. Very creative! I love how you made the wine tag with the tree stamp - rather modern looking. Even after seeing the wine tag, I thought the little tags were made from bird feet, lol! Now that you explained it, I can see it was the top of the tree. Thanks for sharing!
