Two More Tags

I'm really having fun this year with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Jo's gorgeous stars on Day 1 reminded me that I have Memory Box Star of Wonder dies which I've hardly used. 

My tag is cut from a soft black paper using a PTI die & the PTI sentiment is gold embossed.  The glitter tape I used for the stars wasn't a good match to the sentiment, but darkening them with a gold Wink of Stella pen made them work.  I added Sticko dots which I really love.  The dark gold ribbon is so beautiful & I tied it with a string saved from a clothing tag.  Used a Versafine cube to lightly color the white string to go with the tag.  This one will probably end up on a card.  I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.

My second tag took 3 tries, but finally got what I had in mind after seeing Kelly's tag on Day 3.  I loved her off the edge design & the classic red & green. 
My tag is cut with Poppystamps Tunnel Tags, the snowflake is Hero Arts & the sentiment is AJVD--thank you, Rosemary!  My stamping is done with VersaMagic Red Magic & Brilliance Gamma Green.  I have a huge ribbon collection as I used to buy it a yard at a time--seems like you're not spending much.  Of course, then I hoard it--haha!  May have to find more of this one--a favorite!  Decided to keep it simple & just add a single green gem (colored with a COPIC) for embellishment.  I'll probably use it with a loaf of my pumpkin bread.  The friend I give it to every year usually returns my cards when she's ready to dispose of them, so I may get the ribbon back--haha!  I'm also entering HLS Christmas, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
