I haven’t entered any challenges lately – I’ve been working on the back-end of my blog for a few weeks now. But – I have that all cleaned up now so it’s time to make all the things! Today’s project is for the Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge. The idea is to use the image provided to create a project inspired by it. The challenge photo is a lovely assortment of Christmas ornaments and wrapping goodies.
From that, I decided to create some tags using Papertrey’s new tag dies and some of the papers and stamps from last year. I usually use the Tiny Treats stamps for cake pop tags for the kiddo’s school parties, but you can easily use them on larger gift tags.
I tried adhering my stamped panels straight on the tag, but they didn’t show up that well against the busy patterned paper. With a little ink around the edges, the panels stand out much better. To do this, I simply rubbed around the sides with a sponge dauber.
These are so fast and simple to do – just die cut, stamp and color with your favorite inks or pencils. You can even lay out the image stamp and the sentiment at the same time and stamp both at once – this would be great if you need to mass produce.
For my tags, I colored in the little images with Wink of Stella brush pens. That’s the glitter you see in the photos… I finally managed to capture the sparkly goodness 🙂
