STAMPlorations – Holiday TAGplorations – Day 1

Hi! I’m excited to be here for  STAMPlorations for the first day of our Holiday TAGplorations event.

Get ready for our 1st Holiday TAGplorations event!

I have a bunch of tags to share with you today. img_3136_edited-1

I used the CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Dies to make all of my tags. I also used lots of different ARTplorations stencils on these tags. Please see the bottom of the post.

First, I’ll give you a closer look at the 5 Thanksgiving tags that I made.

Printed with inked up real leaves

I used Brusho Crystal Colors, heat embossing and ink-blending on the tag above.

This next tag has a smooshed background as the tag base (variety of coral colored inks with red Stickles mixed in). I also stamped in red with the real leaves (attached) on the base tag, die cut another tag from a disposable coffee cup and added the inked up leaves to the fussy cut mug. img_3165_edited-1

I love the honeycomb stencil that I used on this next tag.

As you can see, I designed, and then printed, my own digital sentiments on vellum. I included a PDF of the sentiments for you to use. Please click here or on the image below to be taken to the printable version.
