Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge - Tags

It is time for a new weekly challenge at Joan's Gardens.  It is only 23 days until Christmas.  This week we are asking that you create any type Christmas tagAnything goes so use your imagination.  You may want to use some of the items that maybe you previously stamped or die cut and would like to use up. I have created four different tags to give you some ideas.  

All my tags were created by using this Tim Holtz, Sizzix "Tag and Bookplates"  (656938) die from Joan's Gardens.  With this die you can cut 4 or 5 tags all at one time - what a time saver! And -- they are the perfect size for decorating.

This first tag was created by embossing the tag with the Tim Holtz "Tall Pines" embossing folder.  Distress Inks were used to color the sky and trees.  Snow banks were created by cutting white card stock with scissors.  The village are two die cuts from the Marianne Designs "LR0172" and LR0173" dies.  Yellow card stock was added behind these die cuts to cover the windows and doors.  The sentiment is from JustRite and reads "Tis the Season".  

This tag was also die cut with the Tim Holtz tag die.  The background was embossed with the Sizzix "Holly Swirls (657139) embossing folder.  The poinsettia was stamped with Heartfelt Creations "Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set" (HCPC 3415) using VersaMark Ink on white vellum and gold embossed.  Distress Stains were used to color the poinsettia and leaves on the back of each.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Hearts  Come Home" stamp set, and the "to/from" tag is from the JustRite "From Our House" stamp set.  They both were gold embossed.

This is a very quick and easy tag.  The Santa image was cut from the Bo Bunny "Father Christmas Collection" design paper pad and glued to the bottom of the tag.  The pretty snowflake flourish is a die cut from the Memory Box "Snowflake Corner" (98238).  The little poinsettia was created with a stamp from JustRite Christmas stamp set.  The sentiment "Believe" is also from a JustRite stamp set.

The background for this tag was embossed with the Sizzix "Holly Swirls" embossing folder.  The sleigh is a die cut from the Marianne Designs "LR0178".  The pretty bell is from the Heartfelt Creations Christmas Collection "Poinsettia Cheer Bells PreCut Set" (HCPC 3422).  The small poinsettia was created with the Marianne Designs "LR0121" dies and the "Holly Flourish" was die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish" (B128). 

I hope you will join us this week for this fun challenge and get a head start on those tags you will need for Christmas gifts.  Remember if your tag is chosen for the weekly drawing, your name will be added to the list of names that will be eligible for the $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens.  Each time your name is drawn for the weekly challenge, you do get an additional chance to win this fabulous prize.  I know there are lots of new things at Joan's Gardens you would love to have.
