25 Days of Christmas Tags (Day 4)

Hello friends!
Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring Tracey McNeeley's Day 4 of the annual  25 Tags Of Christmas Event. Myself and several members of the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Design Teams were invited make a tag to share and promote this special event. It is so nice to get both teams working together! To see them all CLICK HERE

'Tis the season

My little tag was made with lots of FABULOUS products from Simon Says Stamp. I am loving the Poinsettia Stamp set and had made many projects with it already. This is the first time that I use the this stamp for tags.

Recently I got the Stitched Banner Dies and I thought the largest banner die (measures 2.5 x 6.5 ) would be perfect for making the tag. I simply made the diecut without using fish-tail. This is another way of stretching the banner dies! If you are on the fence about getting dies like this, you may want to re-evaluate?

'Tis the season to be Merry

I enjoy color-layering so much that I use the same technique with the solid Poinsettia Stamp  again. In case you miss seeing my tutorial, you can check out my You Tube video and see how I inked up the poinsettia images (see here).

YOU could win $50 voucher to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store!

I hope that you check out this spec-TAG-cular event.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!
