Joy Tags


Boy, it's raining like cats and dogs here today!!!!

Can't believe how much it has poured the last couple of days!! But.... I guess it's a good excuse to spend time in the craft room, hehehe!!!!!

I'd like to share some tags I made for the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays!

This weeks challenge:


For my tags I started out with some kraft card stock and I used my old fashioned Coluzzle and tag template to cut them out! Remember  those ladies?

I embellished the tags with some Washi tape I recently bought at Michaels and then added some stitched trees using a Bazzill In-Stitchez template. I like the way the stitched trees mimic the frees in the Washi tape.

I stamped my sentiment on top of the Washi tape, but it came out very light so I went over it with a Extra Fine Point Sharpie.



Supplies used: card stock - kraft; Washi tape by Recollections; In-Stitchez template by Bazzill; floss - DMC #304; stamp from Warm Hearts by paper Smooches; ink - Tuxedo Black by Momento; Extra Fine Black Sharpie; eyelet - my stash; Crop-A-Dile; twine - Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

I like these tags - very "Nordic" Christmas style. And, for once, they look almost like I could make them. :p Okay, probably not but they are inspiring. :)
