Tag You're It

Welcome to InKing Royalty's November Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites - our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month's projects feature pretty packages and beautiful tags to inspire your holiday gift-giving. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I just love Hallmark movies...Who doesn't?!!  I love to see towns transform for the Christmas holiday's.  Especially when it has that vintage look. Today I made a vintage tag that reminds me of a old fashion Christmas. 

Supplies used:  All items used are current Stampin' Up! products.

  • Evergreen Elegance (153313)
  • Tailor Made Tag Dies (155563)
  • Banner Year (158239)
  • Peaceful Prints DSP (156628)
  • Kraft 6x6 Paper (156325)
  • Ink used: Evening Evergreen (155576), Real Red (126949), Soft Suede (147115), Whisper White (147524)
  • Braided Linen Trim (147808)

Here’s How I made it!

  • Using the largest tag in the Tailor Made Tag die, die cut using the Peachful Prints DSP, and the 6x6 Kraft paper.  Then using the next smaller die, die cut the using the Kraft 6x6 paper.
  • Adhere the tag using the Peaceful Prints DSP to the larger tag using the Kraft paper together.  Using your Soft Suede ink, blend the edges to give a distressed look.  
  • Using your Evening Evergreen ink, stamp a tree on the edge of the smaller tag.  Also blend the edges using the Soft Suede ink to give a distressed look.
  • Using the Banner Year stamp set, using the holly leaves and berries, stamp the holly leaves in Evening Evergreen and the berries in Real Red.  Stamp on the corner of your larger tag on left bottom side.
  • Using the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, using one of the larger trees, using Evening Evergreen ink, stamp off on a piece of scrap paper and then stamp half way on your tag.
  • Using the Banner Year stamp set in Real Red, stamp the To:/From: on the top part of your tag.

  • Take your small tag and place on top of your larger tag.  I used a glue dot to adhere together.
  • Cut a piece of Braided Linen Trim 12 inch long.  I wrapped my ribbon several times and then tide with a knot. If you are good with bow many, you can then tie a bow at the top.  On my finished tag, I tied another bow and glued onto my wrapped trim.

This was such a fun project.  I hope you enjoyed making it as much as I did.  These tags will look so good on a pretty vintage wrapped gift. 

Happy Crafting!!!
