CASology #121: FESTIVE

Hello, friends!  Welcome back to another cue card at CASology!  This week we are sponsored by STAMPlorations, so be sure to check out the details at the CASology blog.

But, wait!  There's more!  This week we are also participating in Tracey's "25 Days of Christmas Tags!"  You can find all the details -- including details about the prizes to be won -- at Tracey's blog HERE.  Get this: you have an additional chance at winning one of her prizes by leaving me a comment on this post!


The CASology Design Team members were all invited to make a tag for this week's challenge.  I have to admit I don't own a single tag die, so I got creative with the dies I do have and made two tags for the occasion.  Both tags use a digital image I bought a few years ago from Jane's Doodles ("Santa Peace") and I made it a little smaller so it would fit on my tags.  Note that, in case you don't like digital stamps, there is now a clear stamp set at Jane's Doodles featuring this image along with other adorable images (called "Mr. & Mrs. Claus").  I also used ultra fine glitter on Santa's fur and Glossy Accents on the glasses and the mug for some extra shine.

Here is my first tag using Lil' Inker's stitched rectangle dies:



Here is my second tag, using an ornament die by Spellbinders:



Here they are together:


I also plan to enter my tags into the current Addicted to CAS Challenge #51: Tag.

Note that you don't have to make a tag for our CASology challenge, but maybe you want to give it a try?  Maybe make a CAS tag and put it on a card?  There are so many possibilities!

Now it's your turn to get FESTIVE!  Be sure to enter by noon on Monday (Central time).  Come see what the Design Team and Guest Designer shared this week, too!
