24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Layered Images, Purple Onion

NOTE: Michele over at Purple Onion is away due to a death in her family; she’s asked that we wait to pummel her with orders til she’s back and underway again. Her website says the 21st, with orders possibly taking 2 weeks, but I suspect it could be a little longer than that. Please be praying for her family in the meantime; and be patient with any orders you place. 

If you’re already a Purple Onion fan, and have a blog, drop me a note using my contact page – I’m working on a little surprise if you’re game to join in.

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Layered Images

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love Stacey Yacula’s designs at Purple Onion Designs! She’s such a good illustrator – and the images are really good ones for this technique I haven’t used in a while: layering. Figure out what parts are in the front and which are in the back, and layer them with a little adhesive between….and you get a really fun look!

As is tradition, I’ll be choosing winners for each of the 24 tags made in these 6 videos – leave comments on the blog as well as on YouTube for more chances to WIN!

In addition to the tags for these 6 days, I’ve been sharing Christmas crafts on my other channel – this time…CHOCOLATE! You could use the sizes in the template, and add your own words to the “book” to make secular versions. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Concertina tags

Concertina tags

The tags this year go from quick ones to more intricate ones….and this is probably the most intricate, but involves no coloring aside from choosing papers. BUT if you have a little child who LOVES to sort things – and I know several kids who just love making piles of matching things!–then do a bunch of diecutting, and ask the kiddos to sort the matching letters! It’ll make assembling the diecuts easy…and maybe if they have tiny fingers they’ll also be able to help put the “puzzle” together with you.

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Penguin Slider Tags

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Penguin Slider Tags

Penguins!! One of my tags each year seems to be an interactive one….this year it’s ice skating penguins! My recommendation is to buy the dies to make this; I didn’t and had to do a lot of fussy cutting. Even though I don’t mind the work – these could be done a lot faster WITH dies. Yep yep!

24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Pencil Ice Skates

Pencil pencil pencil! I get so many comments from giddy pencil-lovers when I put together a post using my Prismacolors…so here’s a tag for you! (And check out the Pencil Gallery Mini Glossy Accents.)

Pencil Ice Skates

I originally planned a one-layer tag- using white pencil for skate highlights. Which would have worked. But then I realized that if I *only* fussycut the skates, the white could really pop! It’s adhered with just some stamp runner, or you could add dimension under it too. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The tag is loosely tied by letting a few spirals of ribbon pass through the hole at the top of the tag.

24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Easy Copic Matchbook Tags

This tag is in honor of a friend who’s started to collect Copics – but not for shading. It’s a super easy way to add color and make it look like you “meant” to go simple!

Easy Copic Matchbook Tags

Today’s tag only needs ONE Copic marker. Yes, ONE! Instead of making it a heavily-colored tag, try just highlighting one portion of each image. When the stamp set is as adorable as Dairy Christmas , it’s easy to let the humor take the stage! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

You can use these just as tags – or as a delivery system for a gift card!

24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Brusho Lights

Day three in the 24 Tags of Christmas week brings none other than Brusho – watercolor powders! If you want more info on the powders, there’s a playlist HERE.

Brusho Lights

These tags are super easy to make – and your kids could make a lot of ornaments you can use for your holiday cards, too! The String of Lights dies are really sweet, and the watercolor powders add a strong pop of color and an artsy feel. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I was so surprised to find that using a little brusho on a bag – a bag with a plastic coating, no less – worked! You need to be gentle with water, but it’s really pretty!sandy-allnock-24tags16-3a
