One of the things I love most about the new Holiday Wrap-Up mini release from Catherine Pooler Designs is how quickly I can create some really cute projects. I used the Holiday Mittens stamp set to create six adorable tags (two each of three designs) in less than 30 minutes.
I started by cutting six tags from white cardstock using the medium size tag die from the Anytime Tags Dies Set 2 from Lil’ Inker Designs. After that, I cut six more of the same tag from some of the winter/Christmas plaid petite paper stacks from Lawn Fawn.
Once I had everything cut out, I used the inks from Catherine’s Foundations Box to stamp all my images. To keep the snowflakes nice and soft on the snowflake tag, I stamped off first on each of the snowflakes before stamping on the tag.
To assemble the tags, I added some tape runner of the right half of the bag of the white tags then offset them a bit on top of the plaid tag. I just made sure to line up the holes at the top. I then added a bit of baker’s twine to each tag and that finished them off.
I’m entering these tags the following challenges:
- Lawnscaping – the current theme is let it snow (the snowflake tag).
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – the current theme is ice inspiration (the snowflake tag).
- Just Add Ink – the current theme is gift tags.
One last thing …
I wanted to take a moment to thank the Design Team over at the Fab Friday challenge. They selected my Autumn Leaves card as one of their winners for a recent challenge. As always, I’ve updated my Challenge Wins/Features page to reflect this latest honor. Thanks again, DT!!
Until next time …
