Stamp Simply #116 - Tag, You're It!


The Stamp Simply team is in the holiday spirit, and Sharon Johnson is challenging you this week to create a tag! That's it... just create a tag, or multiples if you want that you can attach quickly to a gift!

Earlier this week, I saw the prettiest card on Carol Longacre's blog. She stamped snowflakes on kraft cardstock and embossed them with this gorgeous embossing powder called Winter Wonderland. I just loved how pretty the aqua blue was against the kraft cardstock. Since I don't have any of that embossing powder, I tried to come up with my own way to make a tag as gorgeous as Carol's card. I stamped the Interlocking Snowflake background from DRS Designs onto my kraft tag using Celadon Colorbox pigment ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Then I rubbed the edges of the tag on my Stampin' Up! kraft white inkpad.
I also spritzed the whole tag with Silver Metallic Glimmer Mist, and added some bling to the snowflakes for more sparkle. The tag was then finished off with a ribbon, Creative Impressions felt snowflake, a button and some linen thread. I just love the combination here of sparkle and glimmer with the rustic-feel from the kraft cardstock and the linen thread.
Be sure to stop by Sharon's blog for all the challenge details and to see her fabulous sample! And help us welcome a new Guest Designer for December, Michelle Woerner! Then stop and see what the Stamp Simply team members have to inspire you today!


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
