Christmas In The Heart

Hello Crafty Friends!

This year, as part of the STAMPlorations DT of course, I am participating again in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Event. It's the 7th year Tracey is running the event and you can really find lots of fabulous inspiration on her blog.

I went for quite a simple tag, which can easily be mass produced, here it is ...

I mopped up some turquoise and purple brusho from my craft mat, the crystals had been spritzed with water of course, using a piece of white card from which I cut the largest Manila Tag Nesting Dies. I then randomly stamped the Christmas Flower - Large in Tempting Turquoise and my Typographia Christmas In The Heartsentiment in black Versafine. The little tree embellishment was made using a stamp from the Trendy Christmas Trees and the coordinating die with olive Archival ink and shrink plastic. A Stickles Border and fluffy ribbon finished my tag off.

The event has been going since 1st November, so there is lots to see and tags to suit any taste. For more tag inspiration, simply visit Tracey's Blog and enjoy!.

I shall leave you with one last look at my tag ...

That's it from me for now. I am back later today with a fun tutorial creating floating dimension on the STAMPlorations Blog. I shall share the project and link to the tutorial on my blog too.
Have a lovely day!
