25 Days of Christmas Tags – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to join in Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year. Today is all about Newton’s Nook Designs, so I created these cuties for this awesome event.

TAG 1.

I started with die cutting the base tag from the Fancy Edges Tag die set from patterned paper. I also die cut a white decoration for the bottom using a scalloped edge die from the set. On this I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Stockings stamp set.

I chose the cute kitty in the box image from the Newton Loves Boxes stamp set as my focal image. I stamped it on alcohol friendly cardstock, coloured in with Copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out.

I also die cut 2 pine branches from white glitter cardstock using the Pines and holly die set. I added a white reinforcer to the hole and after I assembled the tag I realised that something is missing. I found the perfect little bow in the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set, which I coloured in red and added to the top of the tag. I finished it off with a chunky white twine.

TAG 2.

I wanted to create something classy too as inspiration for those of you who are not into the cute designs that much.

I used the Tag times two die set to cut white tags and also black and white ones.

On the white tags, I gold heat embossed different sentiments from the Ornamental wishes stamp set.

I adhered the 2 tags together and added a black reinforcer before embellishing  my tags with either a gold string or black and white twine.
