25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 4 2019

Welcome to Day 4 of 2019’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Uniko is super excited to be a part of this wonderful festive event organised by Tracey McNeely from In My Creative Opinion. If this is your first year joining in and finding out about the fun you can read all about it HERE.

How about some inspiration from myself and the Uniko Brand Ambassadors and be sure to checkout Tracey’s Blog HERE for more inspiration from the 25 Days of Christmas Tags team.

I seem to have a yearly theme when it comes to creating a tag for this event and unintentionally reach for the same but ever popular Uniko clear stamp set, Winter Foliage! 

I do have a good reason though this year, as I recently released coordinating Designer Dies for this stamp set and I have been really enjoying using them!
I'd planned on having more tags made to share with you, but the flu at the weekend put a stop to that and I have spent most of the week in-between looking after The Beans resting and recuperating in bed! 

Fear not though as I have my awesome Brand Ambassadors joining me today and they have FABulous tags to share with you too. Be sure to stop by each of their blogs (link below the photo of their tags) and leave a comment. I will select a lucky comment to win another prize separate from the Uniko Sponsor prize for the event!

25 Days Of Christmas Tags – Uniko Day 8!


I’m super happy you’ve popped by today as here at Uniko we are super excited to be part of a wonderful festive event…


This is the 8th year the lovely and creative Tracey McNeely  from In My Creative Opinion has organised this fun and festive event to spread Christmas Cheer.

Uniko are honoured to be one of the 26 sponsors of the event and to be taking part 🙂

Sponsors 2018

Myself and the some of the Uniko Design Team have got our festive on and created some Christmas Tags to share with you, so let’s get to the inspiration!



I wanted to go ‘Classic Christmas’ with a modern look, so I decided upon a holly theme for my tag duo 🙂

For my first tag on the right I wanted to use Background Builders: Christmas 2018 and a Lawn Fawn ‘joy’ die I have had for over a year now, but not used 🙁


I started by stamping the stripes from Background Builders: Christmas 2018 in Altenew Industrial Diamond ink. The joy is die cut 5 times from Stampin’ Up! Real Red card and layered to give it dimension. I also added some fine glitter using a glue pen. The holly sprig is from Winter Foliage and the Christmas sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks Christmas.



I used some Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow Satin Ribbon and some Stampin’ Up! Basic Grey Bakers Twine for the bow. The tag shape is also from Papertrey Ink.

Next I decided to use Background Builders: Christmas and my favourite 2 step holly background stamps to create an all over background on my tag.


I used Altenew Moss & Ruby Red inks to stamp the holly background and this time I added a vellum overlay tag, which I added a sentiment from Jolly Christmas & Simply Said II, with some more holly from Winter Foliage to accent it.


Again the ribbon is from Papertrey Ink & this time it is Simply Chartreuse and the Bakers Twine is Cherry Cobbler from Stampin’ Up! The tag shape is Clearly Besotted.

I hope I have inspired you to join in on this fun event and I would love to see someone inspired by a Uniko tag in the gallery!

25 Days Of Christmas Tags

Hey and Happy Tuesday!

Uniko is excited and honoured to be taking part AND sponsoring the FABulous 25 Days of Christmas Tags hosted and organised by the lovely Tracey McNeely from In My Creative Opinion.

All the fun began on Nov 1st HERE and there are lots of prizes and inspiration to be had, so be sure to check it out from the beginning.

Anyway, the Uniko DT myself included have made a Christmas tag or two to inspire and share with you, all the links can be found HERE.
This is what I came up with…

I’ve seen a few shaker tags around blog land and Pinterest and so I thought I would challenge myself to have a go! I was also inspired by the current “Less is More” challenge HERE, which is to use Purple and Gold, though as I have made a tag, rather than a cardI am not entering into the challenge. I used the challenge as inspiration.

Anyway, I started by die cutting 3 of my tags from white card. I then die cut a rounded rectangle from one of the tags to create my window. The snowflakes are my favourite trio from Stunning Snowflakes and I stamped them onto the second die cut tag.


I used a mixture of gold and purple sequins for my shaker and added a gold heat embossed snowflake with a few enamel dots to embellish the outside of the tag. Some satin ribbon and bakers twine finished the tag off nicely.

The third tag I die cut was to create a back to my tag, scoring and adhering only a small section at the top so my tag would stand up! It also gives a flat surface to write the recipients name and message too.

Before I go I have a couple more tags to share, which are SNEAKY sneak peeks at a couple of clear stamp sets being released in a couple of weeks 😉



Now, I am also offering an extra prize to the Sponsor Prize!

Simply comment on all of the Uniko Design Team blog posts (links above) AND Tracey’s post HERE and I will use to select a winner to receive a November 2016 Release Clear Stamp Set!! You have until midnight GMT 26th November 2016 to leave your comment for the chance to win!

I hope we have inspired you to join in on the fun and I look forward to seeing you in the gallery link up!

Thanks for stopping by.
