Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Tags!


Hello my crafty friends! What did you think of yesterday's tag? Cute right?  Day 2 tag is maybe even cuter! I just love the little scottie dog! 

I'm using the Christmas Scottie Stamp & Punch Bundle for today's tag.  Don't be fooled by the fact that it's in the holiday catalog. This little dynamic duo is gonna be a terrific all occasion and other occasion set! Trust me! Snatch it up while you can! It's on the LAST CHANCE SHOPPING LIST for only $36.75! 


When stamping solid colored bold images or sentiments, the Stamparatus is an essential tool.  Not only does it ensure that you stamp a clean image, but you'll want to ink and re-stamp the image a time or two in order to get a true black Scottie dog. We don't want a grey one do we? Or maybe we do! lol. 


Once my scottie is as dark as I want him, I'll use the coordinating punch to cut him and a bow blank out of Basic White Cardstock.  I like to do it this way because the stamps are photopolymer and therefore easy to line up with a cut shape.  But the scottie needs stamped a couple times to be as dark as we want him.  Trust me, this way works easier! :-D 


I love that the Christmas Scottie Stamp Set has that fabulous plaid rectangle. It's terrific for making backgrounds, as well as making plaid scottie dogs! SO CUTE! Of course you could stamp it in any color to fit any theme or occasion. What about high school colors? Or perhaps pink for Valentine's Day? Or green for St. Patrick's Day! You see! It can be used for any occasion.  Yes there is a "Merry Christmas" stamp, but there are other sentiments as well, that are not Christmas themed. 


I'm in love with the Celebrations Tag Dies! The base of our tag was cut from Real Red Cardstock, using one of the tag bases in that die set. It's already got the hole cut out for the ribbon, stitching along the bottom, and a nice scalloped edge! Soooooo cute!

I kept with the Red/Black/White colorway on the inside of the tag, but made sure to leave room to put someone's name. 


It was love at first sight with the Christmas Scottie Bundle!  Hopefully, this adorable tag has helped you fall in love with it too!  You can still order it (while supplies last) throughout December. But it will retire at the end of the year, if it doesn't sell out first. 


Thanks so much for stopping by for Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Tags!!  I won't be posting over the weekend, so I will see you again Monday evening with Day 3! :-D

The 12 Days of Christmas Tags begin now!!


Hello my crafty friends! It's time for the 12 Days of Christmas Tags!!! Can you believe it's already nearly Christmas again?  Wowza!! Where did the time go?

For those who were with me last year, you remember the 12 Days of Christmas Tags. For my newer followers, welcome and please enjoy!  I will post a new tag here each evening for the next 12 weekdays (Saturday & Sunday not included).   Shall we begin with Day 1 already?


Our first Christmas tag features the Santa's Express Collection of products.  I thought it fitting to start here, since the "LAST CHANCE" sale began today and many of the products I used are dramatically reduced in price right  now.  YAYAY!! You get a gorgeous tag AND a fantastic sale on the products?  Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!


As I said, many of the products I used to make this tag are on sale right now (while supplies last) on my website.  You can find the supply list below and can click the images to be taken right to them! Happy Shopping!

We begin the tag with a die cut image from the Designer Series Paper.  That Santa is just as cute as he can be!  I cut a small length of the Iridescent Trim to glue to the top of the engine. 


The base of the tag is a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square of Shaded Spruce Cardstock, layered with a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  The red DSP layer is 3" x 3", and then the Stitched Square is cut from the 2nd largest of the Stylish Shapes Dies. I glued these two layers together and attached them to the base with Stampin' Dimensionals to provide a little depth to the tag. 


Santa's train is attached with Dimensionals as well. I stamped the sentiment on a small scrap of Basic White Cardstock and trimmed it down to fit, then attached it with Dimensionals too.  Lots of layers and depth to this tag! 

You can see the sale prices of the products in the photo here: 


The finishing touches of this tag are a couple of Adhesive Backed Stars, the Real Red Ruffled Ribbon, and the White Baker's Twine.  

I really love how classic this tag looks!  It's gonna be fantastic attached to a gift under our tree!


I hope you liked Day 1 of our 12 Days of Christmas Tags!! Be sure to come back tomorrow at 8pm est for Day 2!
