An Assortment Of Gift Tags - CTC50

It's Sunday, our new night for sharing,so here we are again on a CASE-ing The Catty Blog Hop. You may have arrived from Monique's blog, but if this is your starting point, make sure you click on the links at the end of each blog, to see what the design team came up with . This week we are CASE-ing tags and I used the picture from the catalogue as my inspiration, but as I don't have the stamp and framelits which feature here, I've improvised (and had a lot of fun doing it too!)
I had a Stampin' Up!® order arrive this week and there were three new stamp sets in there for me: Be The Star, Jingle All The Way and Snow Place. Even though Be The Star isn't a Christmas stamp, I've used it with black stars for a tag.

I hadn't planned to buy Snow Place, until I found out how much my little grand daughter loves penguins, and she likes stamping with Grandma too! She's so cute, even when she's asking me at 7 a.m. if she can do stamping now. I had a bit of fun dressing the penguins differently. I've tried to copy some of the techniques the designers for Stampin' Up!® have used, like stamping in the negative space of a die cut and raising featured parts. There's watercoloured backgrounds and an assortment of stamped silver star backgrounds too. You can make tags as fancy or plain as you like, and you certainly don't need lots of supplies to do it.

All the tags are cut 5cm wide by 10cm long. I used two different Tag Topper punches to shape the tops, and the new silver cord is perfect to tie through the top, or bakers twine does a great job too. There's a big list at the end of this post to show you all the supplies used. If you click on them, you're taken straight to my online shop.
