25 Days Of Christmas Tags -- Santa Shaker Tag


Popping in for a short post as I did another tag for day 22 at 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  You can't cook and clean all the time (even if tomorrow is Thanksgiving).  ;)    I was inspired by Sanna and Carol's shaker tags.  Both of their tags made me want to try something new in "shaker town."  I had not made one using alphabet letters as the "shaker" part so this one is a "first."  :)   Better get back to cooking and cleaning since tomorrow is "gobble 'til you wobble" day.

My Santa tag will be ho ho ho-ing at:

25 Days Of Christmas Tags -- Tree Tag


Today is day 22 at 25 Days of Christmas Tags and it is filled with lots of fun tags for inspiration.  If you are a newbie like me, then read all about it here.  For my tree tag, I was inspired by two tags.  I loved how Vickie Dutcher used the corrugated cardboard with the texture paste.  I was also taken with the shape of the trees and bling on Lynne Mizera's tag.  So I combined  elements from both for my tree tag.  Keeping this short as I need to get back to cooking and cleaning.  Glad you could stop by for a visit....now you need to get back to your cooking and cleaning.  You know Thanksgiving is tomorrow!  Wink!

25 Days of Christmas Tags -- Four Ornaments Tag

Today is day 21 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  I cannot believe how fast this 21 days has gone by!  I guess it is true what they say about time flying when you are having fun.  :)  I was inspired by Carol Mayne's tags.  I liked how she stamped and colored her images.  I'll make this a short post as I need to be busy getting the house ready for Thanksgiving.

Ink Pad -- Clearsnap (Wicked Black)

25 Days of Christmas Tags -- Stocking Tag


I didn't get to create yesterday for day 20 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags due to some unforeseen circumstances.  So I got up bright and early today and caught up on day 20.  I was inspired by Lindsey and Tracey's tags with stockings on them.  Instead of stamping a stocking like they did on their tags, I used a diecut stocking.  I decided to do it in classic red, white and black which always looks classic and clean.  I'm going to be looking for some red and white striped (or maybe polka dot) wrapping paper for this tag!!!!  Thanks for dropping by even though I know you are busy getting the turkey ready for Thanksgiving!  :)

CARD RECIPE:
Stamp -- Unity Stamp Company
Ink Pad -- Clearsnap (Wicked Black)
Diecuts -- Sizzix (Tag, Stocking and "merry")
Cardstock -- Recollections (White and Red)
Misc. -- Ribbon, Baker's Twine and Striped Sequin

This is my third tag for day 19 at 25 Days of Christmas Tags If you are a newbie like me, then read all about how to participate here.  I was inspired by Teri Anderson's tag.  I have long been an admirer of Teri's creations.  Her designs are always fresh and fun.  (We used to be on Art DeClassified's design team together and I was always blown away by her creativity.)  She has designed some of the cutest stamp sets for Techique Tuesday (Teri Anderson Designs) so check them out!!!  I loved the shape of her tags today and the colors (especially using that chartreuse green).  That is going to be all for me today.  I need to get up and walk (got to get those 10,000 steps).  It is also my favorite TV night (yep, I am a Walking Dead fan).  Visit again soon because you know I will be glad to "see" you.
