Here's my entry for the second Bah! Humbug! challenge: stencils.
I used the same brass stencil for the owl in both tags, from The Stencil Collection. The owl on the white tag was chalked after embossing. A holly rub on from MM's fa la la collection was applied under the owl's beak (supposed to look like the owl is holding it in his beak) and red stickles was added to the holly berries. An Inkadinkado snowflake stamp was used on the background. Silver stickles were used on the branch and distress ink on the edges. Background mat was from Hobby Lobby's Magic of the Season Christmas 2010 pad. The blue tag's owl was lightly sanded after embossing. A Martha Stewart silver glitter marker was used to draw stars and a clear gem was added to the largest one. Background mat was white cardstock edged with the same glitter marker.
