Fun & Festive Holiday Tags!

Hi there... I have some fun tags to share today using a variety of products from the Holiday catalogue! The first one is featuring the 'Santa Stache' stamp set. I just love this set, it was on my first order when the catalogue became available to order. I'm a sucker for humourous cards - what can I say?!!
I started by stamping, then fussy cutting this cute Santa out. I could have left his beard white, but I decided to colour it with Smoky Slate. I cut a 2" X 3" strip of Whisper White and punched the top with the Scallop tag topper punch. I took a piece of White organza ribbon, and coloured it with one of my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities markers - yes, you can colour ribbon! How great is that to perfectly coordinate!! I tied a piece of Gold Baker's Twine around the base of the ribbon to connect them together to the tag - then added a strip of Garden Green cardstock with one of the stamped sentiments from the same set, some Gold Glimmer paper and a strip of Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper. I added the cute Santa with a Dimensional, a perfect addition to any gift!
The second tag, I saw one on Pinterest and it was just so stinkin' cute I had to make some for myself. I used the 'Gift Bow Bigz Die', the largest piece for his mustache, the tails for his beard. His face is made with the Extra Large Oval punch, his nose is punched with the 1/2" circle. I made the hat by making a triangle with my paper trimmer, then adding a strip of white for the trim... I added some googly eyes for added whimsy! I think he's just adorable, don't you??!
Third is a MERRY tag... very simple to mass produce a bunch of these babies!! I used the notetag punch and Lost Lagoon cardstock for my base. The MERRY is from the Cheerful Tags set, punched out with the Large Oval and matted onto a piece of Coastal Cabana punched with the Scalloped Oval. I added some 1/8" Gold Ribbon and Gold Glimmer paper for some sparkle!

Fourth I have a Merry Little Wish... another simple tag or embellishment for a card. I stamped a tree image from Festival of Trees, punched out around the image with the 2-1/2" Circle. Then punched a tree out of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock, then punched a 2-1/2" Circle around the tree. I punched a hole a the top of the back piece to tie my twine through, then added dimensionals to the Brown sugar piece so the stamped image is inset. Then stamped the sentiment, punched with the word window and matted to the modern label. Added a glimmer star and some sequins to finish! Cute :)
Lastly, I cut a 2" strip of Blackberry Bliss and using the Angle tag topper to cut the top. I put a piece of Silver Satin ribbon through the top and tied some white twine around it. I cut a layer of designer series paper from the Moonlight stack, stamped the sentiment from the Wondrous Wreath set and punched it out with the 2" circle punch. I made a silver glimmer star frame as a mat behind the sentiment. To add another 'pop' of colour, I punched a Blackberry Bliss tree out! A nice topper for a gift!

I hope you liked my tags share, and be sure to check back tomorrow for a sneak peek project from the upcoming Occasions catalogue!!
