Christmas Tags


I failed miserably at the beginning of the month with the Anything BUT a card for this months Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It's still a bit of cop out but for the mid month reminder I've made some tags!!!

I first cut out the tags using Simon Says Stamp Dressed Tags die till I was bored. I actually used a stamp a ma jig to stamp the Penny Black Snowflake and Holly because I wanted to stamp part of the image and leave enough space to write on. I stamped using a green inkpad and used my Polyochromos to colour in circular motion because the inkpad wasn't the right type to use sandsador and paper stubs.

Here's a link to a card with the stamp in its entirety and here is a link to a card I made that inspired my tags.

That is pretty much it, just added some red gingham ribbon and 15 tags done. I've made these for the Christmas Fair at Queen Elizabeth Nursing Home next week.


The staff really make this special not only for visitors but the residents love the party atmosphere. Although the funds raised goes to charity my sister is having a stall and the money raised will be for residents activities. My sister is a volunteer helper so more residents can join in the activities so she knows how much a few more pounds to their small budget would be gratefully received.
