25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 22, STAMPlorations

Happy Day everone!! Today I am excited and honored to be participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event and also to be showcasing some of STAMPlorations new products for the 2017 holiday season.  Here are just a few of the tags I created for Day 22 of this event:   (Note - find all the tags from November 1st forward at In My Creative Opinion
My first set of tags were inspired by the new Christmas Flower stamp from STAMPlorations... which I stamped, heat embossed using a black, fine detail embossing powder and then painted using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints.
Cut out and mounted on a shimmery white card stock tag cut from the CUTplorations Nesting Luggage Tag dies, this image is so beautiful that the tag did not need anything else.
A gold metal eyelet and some shimmery gold cord to match the gold embossed greeting is all that was needed to finish off these simple yet elegant tags.
For my second collection of tags I used the new Christmas Tree #1 die from CUTplorations mounted with foam tape onto the largest of the luggage tag nesting dies to create some dimension.

Embellished using every kind of sparkly bling I could find, the bigger and blingy-er the embellishment the better the tag looked.  Now THAT is my kind of Christmas tag!
Creating these tags was so fun, and they came together so easily I kept thinking "What a great family project this would make because even the little ones could help with the decorating."
And there really is no limit to what you can use to decorate these wonderful Christmas tree images.  And as an added bonus, all the bling for these particular tags was purchased from my local dollar store for very little money (a definite Win, Win)!

So that's my inspirational post for this year's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event, I hope it was both enjoyable and inspiring, and please do leave me a comment if you liked what you are seeing.  And, if you haven't yet, do pop on over to Tracey McNeely's blog today to see all the other wonderful tags my team mates created to inspire you.
