25 days of Christmas Tags - Hello Bluebird

Hi Crafty friends! I'm excited to be joining Tracey McNeely for her annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event.
Be sure to visit her blog for more tag inspiration from other amazing designers!

Today , on the last day of the event, I'm sharing tags I've created with Hello Bluebird products. I have a couple different tags, so keep reading!

I started by cutting my tags from white Bristol smooth cardstock. I used Distress Oxide inks in Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers to color my background. Using a paintbrush, I splattered some watered down white acrylic paint to create some snow.

Next, I stamped images from the First Snow stamp set . I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating First Snow Die.  I then cut my snowy hills from white cardstock using the Hill and Dale Die.  I cut down to fit my tag, added some chunky glitter to the edge and attached to tag.
I adhered the colored images to my tags with dimensional foam squares. I added the sweet sentiments and snowflakes from the Snow Play stamp set to the tags by embossing them with white embossing powder.

Finally, I finished off my tags by adding  red polka dot ribbon and tied on a jingle bell with some white twine.

My second set of tags were made to look like little snowglobes, using the Frosty Littles Stamp set, one of my all time favorite sets!

I started by cutting three tag bases from white cardstock, using  THIS die. Next, using Bristol smooth cardstock, I cut three circles to create my background. Using Distress Oxides, I ink blended each circle using Broken China, fading into Tumbled Glass. I splattered some white acrylic paint onto my background for a snowy effect and added some white embossed snowflakes and set aside.

Next, I stamped out images from the Frosty Littles Stamp set onto Bristol smooth cardstock. I colored my images with Copic markers, and cut them out using the Frosty Littles Die.  Now, it's time to put the snowglobes together.  First, attach the ink blended circle to the tag base. Then, cut 3 more circles from white cardstock, and using the Hill and Dale Die, cut your snowy hills and attach to your tag.  I arranged my stamped images to my liking, and attached them using dimensional foam. Finally, from black cardstock, cut your snowglobe base using THIS die.  I heat embossed the Season's Greeting sentiment from the O Christmas Tree Stamp  set with white embossing powder and attached to the bottom of the tag with a strong adhesive. I finished off the tags by attaching a sparkly silver bakers twine, keeping it simple.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
