Altenew & 25 days of Christmas Tags

Hello Everyone! Altenew is participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event and the Altenew DT has some beautiful tags to share with you today.

I’m sharing two similar tags that I made using non-traditional colours.



I started by creating my tags out of white cardstock and stamped my backgrounds using the Tiny Stars and Snowing background stamps. Then I used a pice of tissue paper and used the gold glitter tape to attach it to the tags. Next, I used the Floral shadow stamp and die set along with purple inks to create a main focal point of my tags. I inked the stamp with all shades of purple inks and stamped it a few times for a darker impression. To finish the tags I used a “Joy” word that was cut out of black cardstock.


There are lots of guests, inspiration and giveaways every day for the entire event, so make sure you check out Tracy's blog to get more details.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a lovely Sunday!

For today’s blog hop I created a one layer card using images from a set called Happy Dreams.

I stamped my images in black and then I used a sponge dauber along with Midnight Violet and Ocean Waves inks to add colour to my background. To finish my card I used a white gel pen to add some dots in the centre of each feather.
