STAMPlorations~25 Days of Christmas

Good morning and welcome to day 22 of
25 days of Christmas Tags blog hop event organized by Tracey over at her In My CreativeOpinion blog!

Today, the STAMPlorations gals are showcasing their Christmas tags and here are my 2 tags using Jingle Bells.

First, I created a tag by stamping the sentiment in alternating colors to create a background onto a Tags 1.

Then colored and fussy cut one of the bells with SN Markers and used Glossy Accents . A ribbon and embellie finished it off.

Next I embossed a Bell Image with White EP and then blended Distress Inks onto a Manilla Tag diecut and splattered some water onto it for texture.

I then colored the image with watercolors and fussy cut out and finished with a Gingham ribbon.

I sure hope I've inspired you today and don't forget to keep hoppin'!

Morning crafty friends, I'm back for

The DT has made gorgeous tags for your inspiration, be sure to check them out here and leave them some luv!

This month it's all about GRATITUDE and the optional twist is: Polkadots! 

Here's my tag featuring TAGplorations using CUTplorations Manila Tags and Thankful Word die alond with a sentiment from the STAMPlorations Be Thankful Stamp set.
 I layered pieces of MME Design Paper onto my tag in different tones or pink and blue and inked the torn edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment with Sepia Archival Ink and added some Twine and washi tapes for texture. 

The Thankful Word Die and Butterfly from my stash finished it off along with a twine bow!
