Some tags to share today…I had so much fun making these! It was a tag happy Christmas for me! The grandkids were over to make tags a couple times and then I made tag kits for the ones that couldn’t make it over. A happy ‘gram’! : )
Then I made tags for our gifts, to match the Hallmark gift wrap.
For the ladies gifts I used the Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath stamp and die sets.
I used a Lawn Fawn background stamp for the stitching lines on the My Favorites Things Pierced fishtail flag die. A Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle for the red piece behind the stamped stitched background banner.
A picture of all six together…
Using the SU sets was a bit of a challenge. They match up but the only way I could get them good enough to suit me was using the Stamp a ma jig to stamp. I cut the center of the wreath in the card-stock first, then stamped with the Stamp a ma jig, then die cut the outside of the wreath. I purchase Stampin Up HERE. Tell her ‘Pam’ sent you!
I added a little SU Real Red marker to the bow and die cut the word Joy from the die set in Gold metallic card-stock.
The tag for the guys turned out really neat too!
I used the Papertrey Ink Phrase Play #9 die, cut in white…cut a tag snowflake for each in dark blue. (the tag back is a dark blue rectangle I cut on the paper cutter and used the corner rounder punch on the corners)
I popped out the white snowflake and pieced in the blue snowflake. Yes, you need to put the itty bitty white pieces back in the snowflake but it’s really easy. Put scotch tape on the back, lay the white snowflake on top of the blue and with your paper piercer push the itty bitty pieces into the holes. They will stick there because of the scotch tape. When I die cut the white, the snowflake stayed intact. I used the heavier white card-stock, so if yours doesn’t stay together, try heavier card-stock. Although I did have to use one piece of copy machine paper to shim it, didn’t take much at all.
I still used the white snowflake too!
The Deerhead die cut is from Savvy! I love that it’s a side view! The twine is Lawn Trimmings from Lawn Fawn. I die cut the word winter from dark blue card too and pieced it into the white. Scotch tape on the back of the Winter banner, holds the letters in place. Then I used mounting squares to put it in place on the tag. Sure you could use scor-tape of dbl sided tape but in this case, since I’m using mounting squares, scotch tape is my new best friend! hehe

For the two youngest grandsons, I used a little bear stamp from Lawn Fawn on their tags. The older boys got owls. The girls tags I made with snowflakes but I didn’t get a picture of the girls. oops!
The Jingle all the way die is from Taylored Expressions. Back in October Taylor had a stamp day here in Iowa, called Stamp Joy. I was able to go and help with make n takes. I’m finally getting to use one of my purchases anyway! TE put on an awesome day of stamping!
The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch. The greenery is from the Magnolia, All I want for Christmas die club kit.
and a close up of the owl tag…
I used a white gel pen on the hat and a white glitter dome for the pom pom on the hat. Cute!
A happy time with family and lots of pictures to treasure these days that go by so fast!
