25 Days of Christmas Tags with Newton's Nook Designs
Hello Crafty Friends! Newton's Nook Designs is participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event generously organized by Tracy McNeely, where she showcases Christmas tags created with a different company's supplies for 25 straight days. Isn't that cool? There are lots of prizes and oodles of inspiration along the way so I hope you will check it out. Today, Newton's Nook Designs is being highlighted.
Being the huge dog lover than I am (Ty even gives gifts to his doggie friends) I wanted to show off some of Jen's adorable canine illustrations, and selected a lab pup from 'Fetching Friendship' to show how you can really use ANY doggie (or kitty) and turn it into a holiday image by adding a cute Santa hat (as I did here, it was a 'Make it Christmas' embellishment from Hobby Lobby) or scarf:
The tag itself is one of Spellbinders' ornament shaped Nestabilities dies, and I created the holly using a Martha Stewart punch for the leaves and sequins with rhinestones centers or the holly berries. I tied some silver cording around the ornament top and then tied some tinsel ribbon in festive colors at the base for some added sparkle. The 'Happy Howl-idays sentiment is from NND's 'Canine Christmas' set and the little 'to: & from:' (I LOVE that little font!) is from NND's new 'Jolly Tags' set. I have a dear friend who has a black lab pup; she will be finding this attached to his gift this year from Ty.
Hope this tag with inspired you and help start kindling the holiday spirit! Enjoy!
