For today's Blog Hop I made two tags. I love using craft paper in my Christmas cards and tags. That's why I simply had to make at least one craft tag for today. 

First, I die cut out a tag out of craft paper using tag die from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3
To make the background I used FLORAL SNOWFLAKE STENCIL and Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink. I blended the ink with one of Studio Katia INK BLENDER BRUSHES
Next, I die cut out a word Merry from MERRY POINSETTIA DIES out of white and golden glitter cardstock. I adhered both die cuts slightly off to add a white shadow. 

I didn't want to use heat embossing on this tag, so instead I stamped the word Christmas from POINSETTIA BORDER Stamp Set with the same Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink and to make it a brighter white I wrote over it with Marvy Gel Reminisce White Pen. 
I added some bakers twine for the top of the tag and adhered cute little bow which I made using a die from SHAKER BALLOON DIE. I die cut it out of white and gold glitter cardstock and adhered both die cuts slightly off, just like with the word Merry. 
I felt that the tag needed another white element, and so I added few SNOW CRYSTALS as a finishing touch. 

This second tag is different and non-traditional and something I really wanted to make. I love Studio Katia images from POTTED PLANTS Stamp Set and CACTUS HUGS stamp sets! I felt it was unfair to let them wait for some love all winter. And so I decided to make a Christmas tag with some of these images. I really like how it turned and hope you like it, too.

First, I die cut out a tag using tag die from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 3. Next I stamped the images, coloured them with Altenew Artist Markers and die cut out using coordinating dies. 
To make the tag look festive I decorated its background using SNOW-FETTI STENCIL and Nuvo Golden Crystal Glimmer Paste. I used the same stencil and paste to add ornaments onto the cacti and the red pot. I used Studio Katia GLUE to adhere the cacti images and foam mounted the potted plot.

I die cut out Falala sentiment out of white and gold mirror cardstock using a die from HAPPY PAWLIDAYS DIES. I glued two die cuts together slightly off for the same shadow effect, as in the previous tag. I adhered the sentiment onto the tag using Studio Katia GLUE. Other adhesive won't work on the glitter paste background.
As a last finishing touch I added some GOLD FOIL PEARLS onto the leaves of the largest plant.

 Hope you enjoyed what I made for you today and will use my ideas in creating your own tags. 
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
