Tag Week Monday for The Paper Players

Hi, everyone and welcome to Tag Week! This week I'm featuring tags of all kinds and designs guaranteed to add a beautiful custom touch to all your packages under the tree this Christmas! I want to show you how all sorts of your stamp sets, punches and dies can be used to create them as well. Today, in honour of The Paper Players challenge for this week, I'm using a palette of Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron and Real Red. I think you'll agree that it creates a really festive look!

I used some Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue with this same palette, Presents & Pinecones, as a background for two of the three tags. And two of the three also used older stamp sets/punches to create the effects. Let's take a look:

Let's look at them one at a time:

  • This tag features the evergreen in Lovely as a Tree stamped in Emerald Envy, then in Mint Macaron full strength and continuing to stamp a couple more times in the background without reinking to create distance. I added a little two way glue on the branches and some Dazzling Diamonds fine glitter to the glue to make the branches sparkle with frost or snow. 
  • I wanted it to be a larger tag, so I mounted the tree on Emerald Envy and then on to a 2" wide piece of Mint Macaron which I was able to punch using the scallop tag topper punch, since it's what fits in the punch. But then I mounted that onto a larger piece of Emerald Envy so I would have room for a sentiment and ribbons. The sentiment is from an old favourite, Teeny Tiny Wishes. I punched it out using the Classic Label Punch at mounted it right on the 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon, which provides a great backing. I used Fast Fuse adhesive to do that.
