Altenew – 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TAGS 2018

25 Days of Christmas Tags.
Hello, crafty friends! Altenew is one of the sponsors of the 8th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely.

I went with traditional colors for my tags this year. Reds and greens, with a touch of black.

For the first tag, I used the gorgeous Bountiful Branch Stamp Set. The number of layers in this set helps you achieve a very realistic look – I love the detailed images, as well as the endless possibilities in terms of color combinations.

After stamping the branches on Neenah Solar White 80lbs cardstock, I matted the tag with red cardstock, just to bring in more of the red color. I also heat-embossed the sentiment with Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder. A few clear drops and festive ribbons finished the tag.

The second tag is slightly smaller, and features another beautiful set: Holiday Bow.

I stamped several images on smooth white cardstock, and cut them with the coordinating dies. Before arranging them onto the tag, I die cut the Watercolor Stripes Cover Die and adhered it to the bottom layer for more texture and interest. I love the white-on-white effect! I used foam dots for the big bow, as I wanted more dimension.
The sentiment comes from the Happy Holidays stamp set. Again, I heat-embossed it with Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder. To make the colors stand out a bit more, I matted the tag with black cardstock.

I hope you have found some inspiration today. Don’t forget to visit Tracey’s blog to learn more about this event. Thank you for stopping by!

Altenew – 25 Days Of Christmas Tags 2017

25Days2015

Hello friends! Altenew is one of the sponsors of the 7th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely. Today the designers are sharing some beautiful projects on the Altenew blog, as well as Tracey’s blog. There is a chance to win some awesome prizes, so you may want to check them out.

I decided to create shaped shaker tags for today’s hop.

For the bigger tag, I used a nesting star die set from my stash to create the window. I cut it six times out of textured white card stock. After adhering all the layers together, I backed the star with some patterned paper from the Altenew Our Family Scrapbook Collection, filled it up with colorful sequins, and finished it with a piece of acetate on top. The Holiday Script Words Die set was perfect to add the sentiment. Again, I cut it several times and glued the layers together before heat-embossing it with Altenew Translucent Pearl embossing powder.

I replicated the same idea for my second tag. This time, I used the Altenew Halftone Stars Nesting Die set for the window, as well as patterned papers from the same Scrapbook Collection. The sentiment is included in the Night Before Christmas Die set.
