Tag Happy

Christmas is just around the corner and just like many of you I am a busy mama!  I love making handmade decorations, giving beautiful cards and baking during this time of year so I thought I would get a head start by making quick and easy tags ready to adorn festive treats.

I put these together using fun Christmas and Holiday themed stamps and products from 

{Let it Snow Christmas Tree Tag}

I made a stencil tag shape from regular cardstock and used it to trace and cut all my tags.  Once that was done the assembly line was ready for production!

1. Stamp tree image with Green Olive ink
2. Stamp sentiment with Cranberry Bliss ink 
3. Dot Journey Glaze for snow flakes and add to snow on the tree.
4.  Sprinkle Journey Sparkle Dust over Journey Glaze and allow to dry.
5.  Finishing by adhering red bling for ornaments

{Snowman Tag}

For this tag I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight die template for the base.  I made 15 of these and cut the all the base tags out first so that stamping would be quick and easy.

1. Stamp snowflake background onto the tags using Linked Dots background stamp with Whip Cream ink.
2. Stamp Snowman onto Whip Cream cardstock, color with markers and fussy cut.
3.  Apply Journey glaze to the side of the snowman and sprinkle with Journey Sparkle Dust
4. Adhere snowman to tag with foam squares.

{Let it Snow Mini Tag}

These are so cute and so easy.  I thought they would make great little tags for homemade goodies, placement cards, even little drinkie-poo name tags ;)

1. Cut rectangular strips from cardstock and fold in half to form mini tag.
2. Stamp sentiment and snowflake images with Whip Cream ink.
3. Adhere mini gems to center of snowflakes
4. Run the edges of the tag sides with Whip Cream ink

The base of this tag is another Spellbinders die called Labels Twenty-Nine.  After cutting all the tags with my Journey Grand machine I was able to do some quick stamping.

2. Stamp sentiment alongside ornament with Lemon Grass Ink
3.  Apply Journey Glaze dots to some of the ornaments - allow to dry
4. Finishing by adding a bright green button to the top of the tag
