25 Days of Christmas Tags

Welcome to Day 2 of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Tracey has been doing this event for 6 years. Wow, great job Tracey! Every day there is a new sponsor with inspirational projects and some prizes. Tracey has all the general info about the event here.

Today it's Poppystamps turn to sponsor and there are some fabulous tags created by the design team.


For my tag I started off by die cutting a Main Street Tag from water colour paper and heat embossing the poinsettia and leaves from the Poinsettia Peace stamp set in brass embossing powder. Then I did some loose water colouring with my Gansai Tambi Paints.


I die cut the Merry Christmas Tag from black card stock and adhered that on top of the stamped tag. I added a few black stamped dots and some sequins and to finish off I added ribbon and a couple of bells.

To see what the rest of the Poppystamps design team created stop by Tracey's blog here.

Thanks for visiting today and happy crafting!
