25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020...Day 3...Altenew

Welcome to the 10th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

If you are new to the event you can click HERE to see the posts from the last 9 years. There are also links to the Pinterest boards for each of  the past years at the bottom of this post.  There is so much incredible inspiration there.  I am so excited to share that there are 26 sponsors this year, and each of the sponsors and their designers will be joining us as a guest for a day!  


Welcome to Day 3!

If you are just arriving for the first time, all the details and the linkup can be found HERE!

Our fabulous sponsor today is Altenew.  

I often think of Christmas in the City when I am doing holiday crafting.  I think it is because growing up, we always went into New York city every Christmas--we looked at the wonderful displays in the store windows on 5th Avenue, watched the skaters and saw the big tree at Rockefeller Center, sometimes even taking in The Nutcracker ballet.

I chose to play along with a stencil from Altenew called City Scene.  All my sentiments are from Altenew Modern Poinsettia.

I cut a few tags, then started playing around, trying different things with these tags and the City Scene stencil.  For this tag, I blended Distress Oxide ink onto the tag and around the stencil.  I moved the stencil slightly 2 more times, to get more of a blurry look.

For this tag, I used navy blue cardstock for the tag, then blended opaque white ink around the stencil. 

This tag started out just like the tag above, but  I then covered the entire tag with a big spray of Perfect Pearls.

This last tag is similar to the first, but in red.

While I had my supplies out, I made a holiday card.  I sponged Versamark ink around the stencil to create all the buildings, then heat embossed the buildings with a black sparkle embossing powder.  Then, I was free to create a blended night sky above the buildings.

I am also entering this tag at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, where the challenge is to make a tag and play along with our challenge!!

Please head over to the main post on Tracey's blog for more information on how you can join in on the 
fun and have a chance to win one of our prizes.
