Dec. 4 - ssnotime116 - Tag it Pretty! Today's challenge is to make a gift tag -- something you can just hang on a gift, a bag handle or box -- just a little bit of handmade loveliness that tells the recipient they are special to you!
Even with the coloring, this tag didn't take long to make at all. I cut out the base with a Cuttlebug tag die, added a layer of patterned paper and then a smaller layer on which to stamp the "sentiment". I stamped the image--a brand new Pure Innocence stamp from My Favorite Things called "Presents For You" on a Perfect Paper Panel, colored it with Copic markers and paper pieced, cut it out and popped it up on foam squares. I also added some Liquid Applique to the little sweetie's coat and hat "fur".This stamp was just released on December 2 and is already sold out! It's so darn cute!! But, Kim's got more on order, so just keep checking back. Finally, I added a punched out snowflake tied on with a button.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime116 if you upload to a public forum. Check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team! And help us give a warm welcome to December's Guest Designer, Michelle Woerner.
