The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019~Day 14 (November 17, 2019): Featuring Paper Sweeties

Hello,

Welcome to Day 14 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.

Today, our wonderful sponsor and designers are Paper Sweeties!


My tags feature the adorable images from Sweet Cuts | Stitched Tags 2 Dies. I combined the three dies - tree, mitten and bow - with designer papers and stickers. The dies cut like butter! Cute and sturdy! 


The bow is especially sweet...and so easy to tie, too *grin*

Inkspirational Challenge #200~Photo Challenge: CELEBRATE...Christmas Cards

Hello,

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #200, where our theme is CELEBRATE (because 200 challenges is reason to celebrate!). We invite you to make a card inspired by the celebration theme or our photo, to be entered into a draw for a Happy Little Stampers prize kindly donated by our good friend and former DT member, Kylie.


My quartet of cards are connected to 'celebrate' in four ways:
  • Celebration of Christmas/Holiday Season.
  • Celebration of having 4 more cards to add to my stash (panic setting in at the number yet remaining)
  • Celebrating that this is the first time I've tried a 'kit' and was 'reasonably' successful in following instructions! 


My wonderful teammates have designed gorgeous cards; please visit and leave them some love, which I know will be deeply appreciated:


Looking forward to having you CELEBRATE with us!

Thank you for dropping by!


Just Us Girls Challenge #514~Colour Week...Shades of Teal Snowmen

We're thrilled to welcome talented Kristin from Lilypad Designs to the JUGS family as our November Guest Designer. Please check out her wonderful card along with those from the fabulous JUGS team: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa and Maria. They would love to know you dropped by.

My trio of snowmen (Studio Katia Happy Snowmen) make me smile! They're each wearing shades of teal; the snowflakes are shades of teal (The Stamp Market Tropical Teal ink).  Wonder what colours my snow dudes will be wearing when next you see them (and see them, you will...they're adorable!).


That's it from me!

Looking forward to seeing the gallery filled with Shades of Teal!

Perfectly CAS November 2019 Challenge~Christmas...Winter Unicorn Merry Christmas


Hello,

Welcome to the Perfectly CAS November 2019 Challenge, where this month's theme is Christmas! Another 'nudge' to get Christmas cards done (I'm so behind...sighhhh)!


This month, sharing Lawn Fawn's cute Winter Unicorn, dashing through the snow to bring Merry Christmas wishes. This one will go to my niece to pass along to a friend who is obsessed with all things unicorn!


Turning the stage over to you! 
Looking forward to seeing your Perfectly CAS Christmas cards in the gallery!

A reminder: For this challenge, we're asking you to use one-third (aka: the rule of thirds) or less on your card designs, leaving plenty of scrumptious white space (two-thirds of your panel) to draw our eyes to to your focal image. Kylie has included an easy-to-follow explanation on the challenge blog here.

Thank you for dropping by!

Hello,

Welcome to Day 11 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.



Our guest and oh-so-generous sponsor is Studio Katia , located right here in my home province of Alberta! 
Image may contain: text

We received an awe-mazing array of products from Katia, with the most 'intriguing' being her fabulous Slider Tag Die. Soooo cool! I paired it with Happy Snowmen (many more coloured and awaiting their turn on a stage) surrounded by a wintry wonderland of snowflakes from Holiday Village.

Here are the happy fellas 'closed'...


and here, 'slide open', to share their festive greetings.


I just adore these tags AND these charming snowmen!

Hello,

Welcome to Day 10 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.


We're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp today.


I  was fortunate to have two sets to play with: Christmas Lights Background and Winter Foliage

Simon Says Gold EP on the first two; the gift is a Kaisercraft wooden embellishment, embossed with the same powder (I had a 'light bulb' moment in remembering I even had these *grin*).  



The next three are various combinations of the Winter Foliage: two using cardstock and glitter paper; 



the third, a rustic version, featuring one of my favourite distress ink combinations (Aged Mahogany, Chipped Sapphire and Pine Needles). Wooden 'berries' completes the look
