Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is going well. I've been getting a head start on some of my Christmas shopping and decided that some hand-made holiday tags would be a fun idea to include with all my gifts! Here are a few that I made the other night while nibbling on some Halloween candy (ssshhhh...don't tell my kiddos).
I created these using three different Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Winter Bunny, Critters in the 'Burbs, and Frosties. I cut out my tags using Tag #1 die cut from Papertrey Ink. For my patterned papers, I chose Distressed Dots from Papertrey Ink.
Ok, now for the fun part! I started with the Winter Bunny stamp by coloring her with Copic markers - doesn't she look so cute riding the little red sled? I added a white lacey border, mica flakes (for fresh snow), and stamped the borders with Frosties snowflakes.
Next, I used the little dog stamp from Critters in the 'Burbs but used the scarf from Winter Bunny, just flipped upside down. Genius, if I do say so myself! (hee hee!) After all, we wouldn't want this little guy to get cold!
For this last tag, I used the adorable little cat from Critters in the 'Burbs and also added the same Winter Bunny scarf. My daughter helped to color the cat's scarf, but that was only because I had finished my Halloween candy snack and cleared up the evidence!
I have to admit that making these tags was really fun for me! It might be the Halloween candy buzz I had or maybe it's because making tags are just like making little mini-cards. Either way, I am going to have lots of fun this month creating tags for my Christmas gifts and sharing them here with you!
