Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


TAG TIME



Recently the design team and I put together a variety of holiday tags that are perfect to keep on hand
for quick wrap options. Now it's your turn to inspire us and the rest of the Papertrey community! Design a holiday tag or two using all of your favorite goodies and share it with all of us! We will all have plenty of inspiration to create a large stash and try to get ahead of the hustle and bustle of the season!



I actually have been working on my Christmas tags for a few weeks now.  I have made close to 20 different tags, so I decided to show you today my two most favorite out of the bunch.  Tomorrow I will have a rather large post where I show you all of the tags that I have made and also how I am packaging those tags to give as gifts!
 

For this tag, I cut out the tag using the Tag Sale #2 die from Papertrey Ink in their wonderful Kraft cardstock.  I then used PTI's Fancy Flourishes stamp set to randomly stamp some flourishes in both Aqua Mist and Fresh Snow Ink.  The Let It Snow circle was stamped using the 2010 Holiday Tag Collection stamp set.  I used a 1-3/4" circle punch to punch out the circle and then applied a dot of white Liquid Applique in the middle of the snowflake.  After adhering the circle to the tag, I applied a bead of Glossy Accents to the edge and sprinkled on some of this wonderful snow like glitter from Martha Stewart that I got last year on clearance from Michaels.

For this tag, I again used the Tag Sale #2 die in Kraft cardstock.  For the circle tag I distressed a piece of white cardstock using some green and red Distress Inks from Tim Holtz.  I stamped the holly image from the 2010 Holiday Tag Collection in Pine Needles Distress Ink (which is a good match to PTI's Pinefeather color).  The sentiment was stamped in black ink.  I then painted in the berries with some red Perfect Pearls mixed with a little water.  The Perfect Pearls add such wonderful shine to the berries.  I die cut the scalloped circle using Pure Poppy cardstock and PTI's Limitless Layers dies.  I then tied a piece of PTI's Pinefeather twill ribbon onto the tag with a Pure Poppy button and some Pure Poppy Baker's Twine.
