Christmas Tags - Day 4

Hello Delightful friends and family!

It's day 4 and four more tags to share.

Here are a few of the details:
I've added designer paper to the lower half of the first tag.  The mirrored stars are from the Tim Holtz
Idea-ology Collection; Christmas Blessing (Taylored Expression); I've stenciled stars at the top and added tiny rhinestones to embellish.

Here is a close up so that you can see the texture in the mason jar.  I've used modeling paste for snow. The stamp and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  The jar and topper is the die and stamp set I've been using and the chevron die they are all  from Taylored Expressions. The snowflakes on the burlap are from my stash.

 Here are two more tags, the
tree stamp is from Stamping Up! I've added just a little of the modeling paste for snowy texture on the tree.  The Joy stamp is from that earlier collection that I've been using and that I'm not sure of the manufacturer. 2nd tag sentiment is from Taylored Expressions; WR Memory Keeps Washi Tape and Liquid Pearls to embellish. Holly & Ivy Stencil (Tim Holtz line) was used for the background. 

 Hope you're enjoying these tags!  There are more to come in the next few days.
I will be entering these tags in the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge Tag - Stravaganza and the Totally PaperCrafts Challenge Blog (#196 Anything Christmassy but a card)

Thanks for visiting!

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5

PS The luncheon was great! There were 28 of us and everyone loved their tags!



  1. Your tags are very special. Love the backgrounds! Thanks for playing at Try Stampin'.

  2. Great job with all the different backgrounds on your tags! I love the jar!

  3. Hi Natalie! These are so cute! How long does it take to do one of these? I see your detail work, down to the 'snow' on the must take a long time! You have patience and an artistic heart...what a great combo :)
    Did you finish the project for your church?
    Have a wonderful evening!

    1. Hi Ceil! Each tag has different elements so it's hard to know exactly how long it takes to make. Although I try to do 3 to 4 backgrounds (ink pad and sprays) all at once. Because they all turn out different even though I've used the same ink colors. And I did indeed finish in time for our Ladies Ministry Christmas Luncheon (thank you, Jesus!). I ended up making 33 of the tags. I have 4 left over which I will use this Christmas! I keep telling my husband that it's cheaper than therapy! (And truly that is a joke), I just love the process and find it relaxing. Blessings!!!

  4. What great homespun tags! Great colors! Thanks for joining us at TSOT!

  5. Fabulous tags Natalie. Love the backgrounds and how it all turned out differently. The jars look awesome too!

  6. Gorgeous tags, especially those beautiful backgrounds you are making. Natalie, these are great and love the idea of using the canning jar and lid.

  7. Wow, Natalie! You've really outdone yourself with all of these tags. Not only is each one different, but you've put a lot of thought and effort into these! I can see why the ladies loved them.
