Tags for swapping

I am hosting a holiday tag swap over on SCS and I typically do a variety of tags- I can never make them all the same. I believe that I had shared a few a month or so ago so I thought I would share my most recent ones. This one is made with a SnowBoy stamp that I borrowed from a friend of mine (thanks Faith!) and I just love him. Not only is he cute but easy and quick to color. I cut out the ovals with my nesties and then used some floss to attach the two pieces. Won't these look just cute on a package?

This next tag........ well ladies this is an experiment of a tag. How many of you were over at Tim Holtz last year for his 12 days of Christmas? Well I fell in love with Tim during those 12 days and had to try some of his stuff! This is one of his tags and I tried hard to follow the directions. I used black paper and stamped the snowman with versamark and then embossed it. I then colored with daubers in two shades of blue. I was to let it dry and wipe the color off the snowman but it did not work for me at all. So then I went back and stamped the snowman again in black- he looks a little scary, almost evil my son said! I highlighted with snowflakes but I had to share with you. I am not sure that I will ever use them but will have to work on perfecting this technique. If you want to see Tim Holtz tags- go to his site Timholtz.com

Thanks for looking today ladies!
