It's all about the 'TAG'

Are you nearly ready for Christmas?
It is just around the corner and details of
this month's Anything Goes Christmas Challenge
(and optional twist of TAG)
can be found Here
Now Tags just aren't my favourite thing and A
Challenge is A Challenge - so here goes
Because I make very few tags I seem to
procrastinate over these little blighters
and get into one big craft mess in the process.
However this tag surprisingly came together nicely for me.
How? Having some fabulous stamps and Designer Papers
from the Happy Little Stampers Store certainly helped.
I cut 2 tags from the
 CUTplorations Curly Labels/Tags Nesting Dies -
One in kraft which was then stamped with snowflakes from SU
in Frayed Burlap and the other from the Designer Paper
and inked the edges with Tim's Festive Berries
The snowflakes are from Spellbinders cut from
Gina K paper and touched up with Colour Paste in gold.
I then attached the sentiment labels from
CUTplorations Bracket Labels/Tags Nesting Dies
inking the HLS sentiment with red embossing powder
and sponged the outline.
Added Merry Christmas to the kraft tag/
I then attached the dew dropped snowflakes
and some Christmasy cording and that tag was done.
The tags below were done some time ago.
I won't go into too much detail.
This tag was cut from a Sizzix set.
The tree is from Stamp It (Australia)
added some red liquid pearls, a die cut and tiny
pearls to the bottom. The tiny tag has the
Merry Die and twine is from HLS.
I had a biut of fun colouring my elf here.
He is from STAMPlorations Christmas Elf
Isn't it the cutest set!
I used a manilla tag for this one and embossed
the background from a Cuttlebug folder sponging it lightly 
and sprayed with a bit of shimmer.
Added the perfect sentiment from a SB die
some ribbon a bell and a few other bits & bobs.
Now if you are a tag type person whether it is
just a tag or a tag on a card I hope you will come play with us
this month over at Happy Little Stampers. If not and you just
want to get more Christmas cards made - go for it!
I look forward to seeing what inspires you this month.

You could never say you don't enjoy making tags, these look great! Fun use of patterned paper and and I love all the stamped details. My favorite tag is maybe the second one -I love the rustic look.

Well an absolute feast of tag fun! Loving the red and kraft combo of the first - great ep paper too. The trees and little and large tags are gorgeous and then that elf is so darn cute!

I love all of these tags Ina... Beautiful job. Each one is done in such a different style. I am partial to the middle one, but that elf cracks me up!
