25 Tags Of Christmas 2017 - Days 1, 2, & 3

Hello friends.  I LOVE this time of year when all the TAG challenges start up because I LOVE making tags!!  Today I'm playing along with Tracey McNeely's 25 Tags of Christmas challenge and have tags from days 1, 2, & 3.
Day 1 is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and I was inspired by Michele, Debby, & Virginia and their use of snowflakes, deer, and triangle shaped tree's.

I used SSS Frozen Fractals snowflake stamps for my background, SSS Lined Trees, and SSS Retro Deer to create my fun little tag.  I love the little drop of Autumn Red Nuvo Drops on my deer's nose!

Day 2 is being sponsored by Newton's Nook and unfortunately I don't have any of their stamps or dies, but I was so inspired by Jennifer Timko's beautiful gray & white snowflake tag, I just had to play along!  I changed mine up a bit and used a TH Poinsettia stencil instead of the snowflake stencil she used and just love how it came out!

I used embossing paste with my stencil and spread it really looks SO pretty IRL!  A strip of vellum and die cuts from PTI's Wet Paint Holiday Dies with red glitter paper finished off these simple tags.

For Day 3 I was inspired by Kimberly Rendino's oh so cute kraft tags with the birds.

Day 3 is being sponsored by Casual Fridays, so I used their dies to cut out the two tags I used.  I stamped the larger tag with a Hero Arts snowflake background stamp (Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints), and the smaller tag has a Poppystamps Leafy Sprig die cut and the bird die cut from PTI's Songbirds set.  The snowflake on top of the bird is from a small set of Impression Obsession dies.  I also loved the way Kimberly added a piece of washi tape to the larger tag, and added a piece to mine too.  My gift wrapping theme this year is red & white, so this tag will look super on it!  :0)

LOT'S of BEAUTIFUL tags to be inspired by, and lots of prizes up for grabs too, so play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!


  1. Marcia, I love all the tags, but the one that caught my eye was the gray embossed. so elegant :)

  2. I really love your style, Marcia--always inspired when I come to your blog! I loved Jennifer's tags, too, but I might even like your version better! Just made one tag so far & still need to do a post, so I better get a move on!

  3. Oh Marcia, all three of these are fabulous! That little reindeer is so cute and has me wishing I had that set. Always the enabler. ;0)

  4. So many sweet and beautiful tags that adorable reindeer! Thank you so much for joining Tracey's 25 Day's of Christmas Tags!

  5. All three of these tags are fabulous. If I had to pick just one, i guess I would pick the embossed gray, white and red one.

  6. Each of your three tags are very creative. I love how you used the embossing paste...I have never tried it. Another thing to add to my "want" list. :)

  7. Oh Wow! I love them! They are all gorgeous!

  8. Marcia, I LOVE your tags! They are so crisp and clean and that reindeer and tree look so modern and fun!
