Holiday Tags!

Hi All,

Here's some Holiday Tags I made as part of my DT work for Frantic Stamper.  Fran sent us all kinds of fun holiday goodies and different sized tags and asked us to come up with some holiday tags!  These, and the rest of the DT's tags, will be featured on the Frantic Stamper blog through the month of December.

This first tag features DP and a coordinating chipboard piece from Cratepaper's "Snowy Day" collection.  The stamps used are Inkadinkadoos "Warm Holiday Wishes" and "Tags and Wishes".  My satin ribbon and the glitter button are by American Crafts.

This tag was made using a generic medium-sized office supply tag.  I sponged the edges, stamped the "Special Delivery" image using JH Distress ink in Vintage Photo, then embellished with a little tree from the same "Snowy Day" collection.  The ferns are MS punch, the buttons are Fancy Pants "About a Girl", and the half back gold pearls are from Michaels.  Fun and easy!!

This last tag was so much fun to make!!  I used Tim Holtz Caged Bird Sizzix Bigz Die, Prima Holiday Flowers and chipboard pieces from My Mind's Eye "Holly Jolly" Collection. The DP used on the cage is Graphic 45 Christmas Past and the rest of the tag is covered with Holly Jolly die cut accessories (the calendar) and DP -- probably my fav DP collection for this season! 

My main, title photo above in this post is angled so you can see the dimension I added under the cage.  I just cut out scrap foam sticker paper in an arch (eyeballed it), covered it with scrap CS, then glued the rounded side of the foam to the bottom of the cage edge.

Next I die cut another cage, and the bird from the "Caged Bird" die using a red piece from the Holly Jolly collection and raised the wing of the bird with a dimensional.  I positioned the cage onto the my main tag and glued it down.  I then placed the curved cage piece over the flat one, glued them together and added all my embellishments!

Serious FUN for a paper crafter!!

All my supplies are available at the amazing Frantic Stamper store!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
