I WON!!! I won a Simon Says Stamp Blog Candy Prize last month. The package arrived last week and today is the first day I was able to play with it. The prize included a stamp set from Hero Arts, a die from Penny Black, a pack of sequins and a beautiful handmade card. I was so excited and amazed that I had received so many awesome products.
Hero Arts’ Joy & Love has big beautiful sentiments. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make some Christmas tags.
Extra Details: I started my stamping the tag in Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink on some white card stock. I them stamped the sentiments in Versa Mark ink and added either gold of silver embossing powder. After heat setting the sentiments, I fussy cut the tags out following the inside line of the stamped image.
I felt the tags needs just a little something to complete the design. I raided my stash of Christmas stamps and added some small images to each tag. I colored the images in using colored pencils. I picked colors that would match the colors in the patterned paper I used. My daughter helped color one of the images also.
Then, I die cut the same tag shape from some Lawn Fawn patterned paper. I adhered the inside of the tags to the patterned paper bases. I added natural twine to the tags and they were done.
