Over the weekend I was doing a virtual crop with the girls at Kitchen Keepsake. I posted over the weekend some of the projects I was working on for the challenges so here's another.
The challenge was for embellished tags and I did several.
First, I did some using some InkaDinkaDo stamps - the Merry Christmas Tag and the Naughty or Nice tag both came from the Inkadinkado Christmas Tag Wishes Clear Stamps , and the SnowFlakes tag came from the Inkadinkado Christmas, Holiday Words.
The two tags (Merry Christmas and Naughty and Nice) were actually inspired by a set that Sue Neal had done with one of her kits. It is no longer available but you can see it here. I found Sue online when I was planning a trip to Utah with the ladies from Hilltop Memories. Sue teaches classes in the Utah area, and taught a class to the Hilltop group when we were in Utah. Even after that trip, Sue thought to reach out to us when she came to Florida and taught more classes at one of the Hilltop Memories winter retreats.
If you haven't seen her kits, check them out here as they are fabulous. The instructions are clear, all of the components are precut, and you learn different techniques. In fact, I just bought some of the newer ones.
But I digress ... For the tags the Merry Christmas Tag is stamped in a reddish burgundy ink and embellished with Stickles. You can see the stickles on the snowflake and the dots.
For the Naughty or Nice tag, it's stamped on a pearlescent white paper and embellished with bling.
and for the Snowflakes tag, it's embellished with bling and striped cording.
One other tag I did for this challenge was to mimic the sample that was provided which was something Suzanne found on Pinterest. See the pin here. This was my first attempt and it looks good, but is not as neat as the pinterest one. The pinterest sample used circle punched colored papers and I chose to use a tree stamp (Hampton Arts Ditto), which I cut out and then mounted together. I like the look, but need to practice some to make my cuts neater, but you get the idea.
