Stampin' Simple Tags

Hi everyone! Surprise! I am this month's guest designer for Sharon's Stamp Simply challenges! Those of you who know me, know my love and admiration for Sharon. She was one of my first SCS stamping friends and has been my inspiration since the day I started stamping.

For those of you who are an SCS Fan Club member, you may remember my very last upload as a Dirty Girl last October? I made two cards with a simple elegant feel and dedicated them to Sharon. You can find my upload here -note, you must be a Fan Club member to access the Dirty Dozen Gallery. So... when Sharon emailed and asked me if I wanted to be her guest designer this month, I couldn't say YES fast enough!!

This week's challenge is to make TAGS! Fun little things that you can hang on a gift or bag to bring some handmade loveliness to the receipient. Remember, keep it simple!!

I made a couple of Christmas tags. I started by using the largest Labels Four nestability die and trimming the bottom off. At that point, I felt it was a bit too wide for the length, so I trimmed off each side and rounded the bottom corners.

I then stamped the cutie pie tree from the {ippity} Stamps Kissmas & Mistletoe set, colored it with copics and cut it out. I used some scraps of Bella Blvd December Details pattern paper and lots of Zva Creative rhinestones . I tied the tops with wired silver cord (from Michael's) and put a silver flower sequin with a rhinestone in the center.

I guess if you wanted to mass produce these, you could eliminate all the rhinestones, it would be much quicker and just as cute.

If you play along, be sure to use keyword SSNOTIME116 when you upload. Be sure to stop by the team's blogs to see all their tags!

Sharon, herself

Please bear with us all as we each upload and link on Thursday night. Everyone should be up and set by Friday morning.


Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to showing you more Stamp Simply projects this month!
