November Blog Hop: Gift Tags!

Welcome to my blog! You should have hopped over from Sami's Blog. Today the Go Stamp It Sisters are featuring gift tags made from Stampin' Up! products. I created two Christmas tags that I'm very excited to share with everybody!

Season of Style or Winter Frost? I decided to make one for each of the amazing color combos in the new holiday mini.  They both use one of my favorite stamp sets from the mini, Christmas Messages. The bold and interesting fonts are on the front of a few of my Christmas cards this year and hopefully we'll get to share those next month. I plan on making a bunch of these to go on Christmas presents along with some handmade paper bows!

This tag was really fun to make. I knew I wanted the "oh what fun" stamp on one of my tags, not just because of the really cute font, but it has the perfect opportunity for a candy dot on the exclamation mark. My Bigshot came in handy with both of these tags. I used the Chalk Talk framelits and the Delicate Doilies sizzlits. Some Designer Series Paper and a Baker's Twine bow finish it off!

While I didn't use the Winter Frost DSP on this tag, the blues and silvers inspired me to create this one. I could easily see the Island Indigo or Pool Party layer being replaced with the specialty paper. Festive Flurries and the Bitty Banner framelits were used along with some silver glimmer paper and rhinestones. 

Is it bad that this is the first time I actually used the Delicate Doilies sizzlits since I bought them months ago? I guess I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it!

It's a little hard to see in this picture but I actually colored the rhinestones with an aqua-colored Sharpie. I love coloring Stampin' Up! rhinestones and pearls to make them pop a little more!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to leave me a comment below telling me which is your favorite tag. I hope you enjoyed my project today and head on over to Jessica's blog.
