I made 2 tags today using the BAGS & TAGS DIES! I love that you can adjust the length of your tags to accommodate the stamps and die cuts you plan to use, as I did for my 2 examples.
The bear holding the sign is tall, and I was able to cut my tag to fit it's size thanks to the BAGS & TAGS dies. Pretty cool, huh?
To make the tag above I used the O CHRISTMAS TREE stamp set. I stamped the garland with red ink. It's a small stamp, but very easy to repeat stamp it to make any kind of garland you like. I stamped the ornaments with gray ink to make them look like they're hanging from the garland, and I colored them with Zig Clean Color watercolor markers. I stamped the sentiment and stars with gray ink, and I sponged some gray ink around the edges of the tag.
I used the bear from the HUGS stamp set and stamped on Kraft card stock, embossed it with white embossing powder, and fussy cut. I stamped "joy" on the bear's sign using the BANNER ALPHA BITS stamp set. I added a few die cut sprigs of greenery that I cut using TAKE A BOUGH dies. To finish this tag I added a few wood stars.
