Super cute tags ladies. I love them all. I use embossing powder a lot the whole year through but Christmas cards and tags just beg for it. LOL

Helen Gullett said...

Another day with gorgeous inspirations! I love the variety of designs from the team.

Donna said...

I'm still experimenting with different ideas, so 'no'... I don't heat emboss more this time of year. Not so far, anyway!
Lovely tags as always, everyone. Thank you :)

Crafty Math Chick said...

Adorable tags! I probably use heat embossing this time of year as much as I do other times of the year, not more often, not less often.

Cynthia Daugherty said...

Although I love the look of heat embossing, I find I don't use this technique a lot more this time of the year.

Liz Gessner McAllister said...

I love heat embossing, and use it all the time. Problem is I have to go from my dining room table to the kitchen to do it!

Mary Holshouser said...

Love the little (chicken?) sticking out of the sock on the first card.
The little items in the jars are really cute.
Waffle Flower has darling stamps.

I heat emboss about the same all year long. I think it adds a lot to a design. And it's fun watching the powder turn liquid.

thanks for the chance to win some wonderful prizes.

I love heat embossing and use it all the time....can't say that I use it any more this time of the year than any other ♥

Sandy said...

Loving all the great ideas I've gotten.
I have a glittery white EP that works great for snow (It's called Winter Wonderland), and I love gold and silver on holiday projects, so I probably am doing more heat embossing.

I think I heat emboss the same throughout the year which isn't nearly enough.

OH Babs said...

More great inspiration tags. I live in sunny Southern California however I still go to my dentist where I use to live in the mountains at 6700 ft (a 3 hr. drive). Two weeks ago I went for a cleaning and it was 32 and there was a light dusting of snow. That night it got down to 16 there.

Denise Bryant said...

So many fun ideas today! I love all these delightful tags!
I do use embossing a bit more for holiday cards! I love the elegant look it gives. Gold is my favorite color of embossing powder!

Shona Chambers said...

Love these Waffle Flower tags!!! I heat emboss most of my cards, but I use a lot more gold embossing this time of the year.

Lindsey said...

Wait, what? Some people only heat emboss at Christmas? :P I heat emboss all. the. time. I may use more of my metallic powders this time of year. These are beautiful tags today!

Bobby said...

Love that bright red tag with gold, Tracey. I can't say I use heat embossing more because I use it regularly.

Megan said...

I feel like I use heat embossing all through the year. It's like magic watching that powder melt :)

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

I love heat embossing, not sure if I use it more or less at this time... love the jars.

Melissa Friedrich said...

Love all these tags, especially the mason jar tags! super cute idea! I LOVE to hear emboss all the time, but with so much silver and gold on my cards at the holidays, I definitely heat emboss more this time of year. Thanks for continuing the WOW factor with these gorgeous tags.

Aileen (mum) said...

I love heat embossing so I use it just as much all year round. Love the tags today, very pretty.

vinita jain said...

Love these waffle flower tags with awesome designing! And your red and gold combo is classic!
And Yes! I used heat embossing more this time of the year especially the metallic and puffy snow one!They really pop up the whole beauty of your creations!

TracyM #6773 said...

FABULOUS tags today, LOVE the variety of CUTE, FUN and BEAUTIFUL designs!!!
Your tag is SO ELEGANT Tracey, LOVE your rich red and glorious golden embossing, beautiful stamps too!!!
I confess that I'm not that good at heat embossing, still trying different powders, especially for more delicate designs, so no, I'm using my punches and dies more at this time of the year.

Marianne said...

Wonderful selection of tags. Like Melissa above, I think those mason jar tags are very special. I do think that heat embossing, esp. silver and gold, work really well for Christmas cards.

Diane Jaquay said...

Squeee, these Waffle Flower tags are so CUTE!!! I think I do heat emboss a bit more this time of year, love my gold and silver!

I'm a Little Teapot said...

What sweet tags! The monkey is as cute as a button!

I think my embossing may be the same or even less. Trying to get more cards completed and eliminating embossing helps reduce creation time. :)

KandA said...

Super inspiration tags. Must admit that I've never tried my hand at heat embossing xx

cghundley said...

Fabulous looking
tags. I don't use
my embossing more
than any other time.
I do need to use it
more, all the time.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Such adorable designs! The heat embossing tool is in my Christmas wish list - am sure I'll be using a lot of it throughout the year if I have one!

Marilyn said...

All tags are gorgeous. The card design dictates whether I heat emboss ... the time of the year doesn't matter.

Irene Grau said...

Cute tags! I'm new to Waffle Flower, but I've liked what I've seen made with their stamps. Thanks for showcasing them.

So, I do heat emboss more on holiday cards -- it's a great way to jazz up a simple card when one has to do mass productions. Plus, it helps heat up my usually cold craft room. lol

Miriam Prantner said...

What a fun mix of tags, I love the jingle bells on yours! I think I use heat embossing a lot all year round!

Christine said...

Love the different styles of tags shown today. I use it all year round.

Karen King said...

Great tags today!
I use heat embossing about the same as I do throughout the rest of the year.

Ruth G said...

Your tag is just gorgeous! I think I probably use heat embossing more because it's extra wonderful and awesome, especially at Christmas!

Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!

Jeanne Jordan said...

Terrific Tags Today! They were all so cute. Waffle Flower is a great stamp company.

Judy Tuck said...

I like heat embossing for sentiments on Christmas cards at this time of year.

Connie G said...

I Do tend to do more heat embossing this time of year as I love the gold and silver colors during the holidays and embossing just enhances the beauty. THanks so much for all the work in putting this amazing collection of tags together day after day. I totally enjoyed it all!!

Kara Lynne said...

I can't say that I heat emboss more this time of year, but I use gold and silver embossing powders more at this time. What fantastic tags! Your gold embossing is so elegant, and love it with the bells!

Jean Bullock said...

Wonderful tags. I use heat embossing as much as possible ALL YEAR 'ROUND. However if I had the kind snow embossing medium that puffs up, I would probably use it even more.

Joyce said...

Wonderful tags today. Yes, I use heat embossing more now, but I always love heat embossing.

Nina-Marie Trapani said...

I use embossing powder all the time... It's a must have in my craft room!! Lol!

Wonderful tags, Tracey ... love the rich red with the gold embossing on yours ... and those sweet bells! I enjoy using heat embossing all year round ... probably don't use it as much at Christmas as I'm on a mission to make all my cards and don't have that much time! Hugs, Anita :)
