Christmas Tags that Sparkle and Glitter, For The STAMPlorations TAGplorations Blog Hop!
Today I am delighted to be sharing some Christmas tags I created for Stamplorations' Holiday TAGploration hop...
GoHerefor all the details but in a nutshell leave a comment on the design team blogs as you hop your way through to be eligible for prizes Plus you will have until November 25th to create and link up a tag(s) of your own for even more chances to win! But now I want to share my first collection... (yes, first collection because I will be sharing even more tags with you later this week!)
Who knew you could create such a wonderful collection of glittery tags using only the CUTplorations luggage tag dies and the ARTplorations Merry Tree and Holly Background stencils and lots and lots of bling!
I raided my huge stash of specialty cardstock to find heavy paper to cut tags from but I also created my own backgrounds using the Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Fresh Green stamp pad (five shades of green in one pad) and a sponge applicator through the ARTploration Holly Background stencil on 90lb white cardstock.
And then using the same ink and applicator I used the Merry Tree stencil to ink multiple trees and cut them all out...
And then I raided all my dollar store bling to decorate each tree. Because all these sparklies and ribbons came from my local Dollarama and cost only $1 or $2 I had no problem felt like I could load up each tree...
And mounting these glittery trees on the tags I had cut using foam pop dots added just that much more interest.
The finishing touch was stamping the backs with To: and From: and NO Peaking stamps and adding an eyelet to the top before threading them with this glittery ribbon, another Dollarama find for $2... happy sigh
I had so much fun making these tags I just couldn't stop and created enought to share again in a second post!
So stay tuned for the next installment of my tags (using the same stencils but different techniques) and if you don't already follow me by email or are one of my Followers, you might want to consider adding yourself so you don't miss even one of these holiday tag posts!
Happy Hopping and Happy Creating!
