Holiday Tags


I've been in tag mode lately. You too? I've seen them popping up everywhere
and I think they're super versatile. Stick them on a card or tie them on a gift.

On my first tag I used all products from My Favorite Things.
 

I love that polar bear, all snuggly in his sweater with a hot beverage in hand.
And the sweater stitch background stamp? A perfect match!

The second tag uses the Paper Smooches snowman (again!)
with a sentiment from Technique Tuesday.


See the background? It's an old technique that looks like embossing paste.
I ink distressed the top portion of the tag and used an embossing folder
that looks like falling snow. Then I used a sanding block and gently went over
the dots and "took away" the color. Embossing paste look without the mess!
 

Lastly, visit Tracey's blog to see if you're one of the winners of her
25 Days of Christmas Tags! My fingers are crossed for you...
