25 Tags of Christmas with Neat & Tangled

Well hello! I’m so glad you have stopped by today for the 25 Tags of Christmas event hosted by the sweet and wonderful Tracy McNeely; today Neat & Tangled is being showcased over on her blog, as well as by the design team, so you’ll want to stop by everyone’s blogs to check out the other beautiful tag inspiration using Neat & Tangled products!

25Days2015

This special event features tags designed by the designers of some of the crafting community’s most renowned companies. There is also a wonderful opportunity for YOU to play along too, so be sure to read to the bottom of this post to find out how!

For my project today, I have a set of four coordinating tags that can be used to decorate your holiday packages and treat gifts!

I wanted to go with a non-traditional color scheme for these tags; something fresh and happy. So I used the new Bright Baubles stamp set and stamped a bunch of the little ornaments in turquoise, purple, light green, and pinks… with a touch of silver embossing!

The tags are really great for mass producing; to start, I simply die cut a bunch of the tags (I used the new Tag Die from Neat & Tangled’s November release to create mine) and then prepped them all for heat embossing using a powder tool. For the embossing, I used Ranger’s silver embossing powder.

Next came the stamping; I used Altenew Crisp inks for all the colors besides the purple; at the time I made these tags, the purple Altenew ink pads I had ordered hadn’t arrived yet. So to improvise, I used Seedless Preserves distress ink for the purple ornaments. While it isn’t as crisp (pun intended!), since distress inks don’t stamp as well with clear stamps, it sufficed.

I blended some Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar distress inks around the edges of the tags to add some extra color, and also added silver dots with a silver Pilot pen and Wink of Stella clear glitter on the ornaments. To finish the tag off, I tied some silver bow wire around a turquoise ribbon on each tag.

I just love the bright and happy colors of these tags, don’t you? Not sure why, but it makes me think of peppermints and wintertime! :)
