Stamp Simply Tag Challenge

This week's Stamp Simply Challenge issued by Sharon: "Nov. 5 - ssnotime164 - Tags are Fun! -- Who doesn't like to make a tag or two! Tags are small canvases to decorate that we pass on with a gift or use to embellish a card or other project. Today we are making tags -- could be Christmas tags or ANY tag you might need for any occasion -- whether it be a tag to hang on a bag handle or gift or an adornment for a card or other project, let's just have some fun today making tags!!!"

Tags ARE fun! Mine is quite large, outfitted to fit a simply decorated, handled brown bag.

These cute reindeer papers are from KaiserCraft's "Be Merry Collection" 6 X 6" decorator pad.

I thought the deer from the Wordsworth "Holiday Stylized" set would go well with the festive deer and stripe prints. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is also from "Holiday Stylized."

A bit of machine stitching, Kaiser red rhinestones, and May Art's Gingham Ribbon add extra interest and texture.

Paper, Wordsworth stamp set, ribbon, ink and rhinestones are all available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Don't forget about the sale happening now at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store: 25% discount on all of JustRite's Christmas stamps from their original line!

I can't wait to see the rest of the Stamp Simply Challenge Team's tag designs!

Hi Deb~

You are so creative! How are you finding time to get everything done?!

This tag is precious. I am going to CASE it if you don't mind. But with different paper, and stamp! LOL Isn't it like all card makers to want to make something beautiful our of a brown bag!

Do you have Thanksgiving plans? Are you going to share? Do you make an American traditional meal? Go out? Just curious, if you are as creative and fun in the kitchen as in your art room! :D
