Hello there,
As I mentioned last week Christmas isn’t that far away, only 64 days away!
So this week I have another “Christmas themed” project to share with you all.
Now I’m not sure about everyone else but I use a lot of tags around Christmas time,
So this week I finally got around to using the retired Stamp A Tag kit from Stampin’ Up!
The Stamp a Tag kit comes with everything you need to make 24 tags.
The kit includes, Stamp a Tag stamp set (wood mounted), Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Classic Stampin Spots, 24 white die-cut cardstock tags, plus Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Baker's Twine.

Now because I like to be different I didn’t use this kit the way it was intended - I had to add my own little spin to it, So I took the stamp set Graphic Christmas from Simon Says Stamp that I used for last week’s cards and added that same cute tree duo to my tags.
Using the bold out line tree stamp I stamped 10 tags in Old Olive ink and 10 tags in Lost Lagoon ink, I then used the lined tree stamp and heat embossed inside each tree using Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder on the Old Olive Tags and Ranger Super Fine Silver Embossing Powder on all of the Lost Lagoon tags.

I then used the To - From stamp that is include in the kit and heat embossed this to the backs of all the tags, again using Gold for the Old Olive tags and Silver for the Lost Lagoon tags.
Because I like to add a little sparkle to nearly everything I design I had to add a little sparkly star to each of the tags using the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, I used Gold Glimmer Paper for all the Old Olive tags and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper on 5 of the Lost Lagoon tags, and DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper to the other 5 Lost Lagoon tags, adhering them just off to the side with a Mini Glue Dot.

To finish each tag off I then looped a little ribbon through the top holes and tied them off with some gorgeous Metallic Thread, For the Old Olive tags I used Mossy Meadow 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon and Gold Metallic Thread , and for the Lost Lagoon tags I used Lost Lagoon 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon and Silver Metallic Thread.
So I’m sure some of you are wondering why I only have 20 tags not 24.
Well I ended up wasting 4 tags by just playing around to see what I wanted to add (or didn’t), this is how I decided on using the Graphic Christmas stamp set as I feel it just made theses tags a bit more interesting.

A great thing about this Stamp A Tag kit is that you can punch out more tags and use it multiple times or if like me you only used the tags from the kit you could just add more tags and then it makes a wonderful gift for someone else.

I am also entering my tags in over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.
This weeks challenge Wrap It Up suited my tags perfectly - Be sure to check it out and leave some of the other wonderful entries some comments.
Hope you all have a lovely week,
