25 Days of Christmas Tags '13 - Day 25



We made it through 25 consecutive days of Christmas Tags! This is the first year that I have been able to post a new tag every day without breaks. I have thoroughly enjoyed having a guest designer for all of those days. Thank you to each and every one of you for joining me and bringing my blog readers and me, more tag inspiration. The only problem is that I could have easily had 25 more designers join me. I'll have to see what I can do about that next year. I hope that these posts inspired you to make some tags of your own.

Today my final guest is the fabulous Laura Bassen! Her blog is Doublestick Heaven and really just page after page of eye candy. Laura is such an incredible CAS designer and definitely a blogging crush of mine.  She is delightful and funny as well as talented and I am so excited to share her gorgeous tag with you today.  I hope you will visit her blog and leave her some love and you will leave her blog feeling inspired.





I absolutely LOVE my new Hero Arts white embossing powder! I didn't realize how poorly my old white was behaving. Today I tried glitter again but this time using my Wink of Stella clear brush, the second photo captures a bit of the glitter which is still hard to take pictures of. This is definitely the way too add a bit of glitter.

Love the B/W on Laura's tag.
Your white embossing is flawless. Now I am wondering if my ancient white emb powd is sub-par, too...

What a fabulous tag. And, I did notice that incredible white embossing, too. White is so tricky. Boo hoo that your series is ending for the year. You did inspire me so much, and I ended up making tag sets for all my teacher gifts this year, and some birthdays too.

Bobby said...

I love Laura's tag with the black and white accents. Your tree is so cute and the glimmer makes it even better.
