Tag, You're It! #35

Have you been following Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags?  It is just amazing to see so many crafters coming together with Tracey to focus on tags for Christmas!  There is something there to inspire everyone.  Today our team at Tag, You're It, has the pleasure of CASEing Tracey's tag, and so do you!  Here's my spinner tag based on Tracey's:
And here is Tracey's tag:
I was inspired by so much on this bright and fun tag!  I followed Tracey's polka dots onto my background, created a focal image, carried over her script "Joy" sentiment, and embellished with silver elements and jingle bells.
I made the polka dots by stamping a small dot stamp from Mama Elephant's Cup of Wishes stamp set in the following PTI ink colors: New Leaf, Tropical Teal, Pure Poppy, and Hibiscus Burst.  Two mirrored image reindeer, from Mama Elephant's Reindeer Games were colored with Copics (sorry, I don't remember which one, I'm trying to get better at writing those down).  I fussy cut them, ran them through a Xyron sticker maker, and sandwiched a piece of Madeira Jewel Holographic thread between them.  The tag, from MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 4 was cut and stamped twice and the thread is glued between them.  I also cut the circle (PTI Limeade Ice cs) and smaller tag (PTI Pure Poppy cs) from the same MFT Blueprints dies.  The sentiment is from MFT's Gift Tag Greetings, and was heat embossed in white.  The jingle bells are brads from Hobby Lobby and are sandwiched between two tags back to back.  The ribbon is holographic curling ribbon from my Christmas wrapping supplies.

I hope you will join us over at Tag, You're It! for this super fun challenge, and don't forget to link up your project on Tracey's Blog for her 25 Days of Christmas Tags!


Thanks so much for coming over to visit, I hope you are having a wonderful day!

  19. My apologies for running so behind with comments, and I can't even blame Thanksgiving preparations as the reason, since we celebrated back in October! Here I am, though, completely awed and delighted by your beyond adorable reindeer spinner tag! Inventive, innovative and all around fantastic! Impressive in every way!
