25 tags of Holiday Countdown

Hi everyone,

It's time, for me the Christmas season has arrived too. Maybe a bit later then for you guys, but just in time for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Fellow DT member Ashli ​​challenges us to use holiday countdown as inspiration. What a wonderful idea. For example, by making an advent calendar or perhaps making a holiday countdown journal.

I made a tag countdown calendar. It's made from #8 Manila tags. The holder is made from foam board.



The backgrounds are done with the Gelli Plate. I'm really addicted to the Gelli Plate. It really creates such beautiful backgrounds. I keep it very simple by appling only one or two layers of single color paints. With these tags I only just one color of paint. I chose or a red background with Modern Red or black background color with Charcoal Black. I just love the sort of simplicity of it.

Sandar...what a clever idea; to do a tag calendar! Your colors of your background are really bright and cheery. I love the bits of washi tape you've added to each one. So cute! And your snowflakes and numbers really compliment each calendar page perfectly. <3 Candy
