it's beginning to look a lot like........

I have been having some fun with my new goodies from Papertrey Ink's October Release! I spent a good couple of afternoons making these super-fun and pretty Christmas tags, but I think if I make some more it will go much more quickly (now that I have a "feel" for them!). I just love how they turned out, and it will be fun to use them to pretty up some gifts this year!

I started by using Tiny Treats: Christmas (be still my heart!) to stamp a few of the sweet little images and colored them with Copics, and also did a few images from 2010 Holiday Tags. I cut a bunch of tags with with Tag Sale 1 & 2 dies from PTI cardstock (kraft, Blueberry Sky, Pure Poppy and Pinefeather), then a bunch of mats with the Limitless Layers dies, some border strips with punches - all from the same group of colors.  Then I started to assemble the tags, using a variety of background stamps (can you tell how much I LOVE that text background in Background Basics: Christmas??) and added some patterned paper from a Bo Bunny Christmas line (wish I had more of it - the colors match beautifully with the PTI colors!).  Added ribbons, and a "to/from" stamp on the back of the tag, and here they are!




Oh my gosh, how STINKIN' CUTE are those Tiny Treats images?? I want to go color some more RIGHT NOW! :) Thanks for looking! :)
