Tags of +55 Christmas Cheer

Salutations. There is a lot to inscribe today, so I shall keep the preamble short. I have been shut in the crafting chambers for the past 17 hours as the candles wore down, toiling away on a gift for our neighbor, Madam Wendy. A kind soul, I figured she could use some magically infused gift tags for her Winter Festival gifts. 

Click to make BIGGER!
I started this set by cutting all the tags using the Winter Frolic cartridge. I then started stamping the tags. The penguin tag was stamped with the Unity “Tinsel in a Tangle” itty bitty and coloured with Distress Markers. I added some glitter to the tinsel for some extra sparkle. 
The reindeer tag was stamped using the Hero Arts “Christmas Reindeer” set. I coloured him in with Distress Markers and paper pieced his sweater. The sentiment came from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. Up next is an owl stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Winter Owl” set. He was also coloured with Distress Markers and had his scarf paper pieced. The sentiment was stamped with the Lawn Fawn “Winter Fox” set.


On the next row is a punny tag stamped using the Penny Black “Joyful Peas” stamp. I coloured it with Distress Markers and added some snowflakes in the background. Next over is the fox from the Lawn Fawn “Winter Fox” set. I coloured him with Distress Markers and stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Cozy Christmas” set. Next tag was stamped using an Inkadinkado stamp. The next tag was stamped with the Unity “One of a Kind Christmas” set. I coloured him with Distress Markers and added some glitter to his hat. The snowflake was cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. Want to know a secret? The only reason I added that snowflake was because when that tag was being cut, it actually messed up that part, so I used the snowflake to cover it. 
See - I cut two snowflakes and glued them together to cover the messed up part of the tag. This earned me +693 stealth exp points.  

The next tag was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Winter Sparrows” set and coloured with Distress Markers. The last tag (and my personal favourite) was stamped with the Lawn Fawn “Yeti, Set, Go” set. I coloured him with Distress Markers and then covered him in Ice Stickles.

Don’t worry...I didn’t skip the first two tags. The top left tag was stamped using the Unity “Warm Winter Comforts” itty bitty and the Echo Park “Holly Jolly Christmas” set. I coloured it in sepia tones using Distress Markers.
This particular tag will be entered into the following challenges:

This tag was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Making Frosty Friends” set. The sentiment came from the BugBites “Mistletoe” set. This tag also got the snowflake treatment for the same reason as that other snowman tag. The snowflake was cut using Art Philosophy and then I glued a shiny iridescent snowflake and a rhinestone on top.
This particular tag will be entered into the following challenges:




Because I made this set as a gift, I couldn’t very well just give the recipient a mitt-full of loose tags, so I had to make something for them to go into. I cut this folder and snowflakes out using the Artbooking cartridge. The sentiment shapes were cut using Art Philosophy. I stamped the title of the little folder using the Lawn Fawn “Cozy Christmas” and “Harold’s ABCs” set.
And look how nice and snug the tags look in their new home :)

This set will be entered into the following challenges:

Madam Wendy was very happy with the gift tags. I neglected to tell her of the creative spells I cast upon the tags, to be unleashed upon the opening of the present they are attached to. I’ll let that be a fun surprise on Christmas morning.
