Christmas in July!

Well, I had to jump on the band wagon before July is over and join in on the Christmas in July trend! The other day I was looking about the internet for some ideas & inspiration & I came across some 'Tags' that Kristina Werner had made HERE. I liked them so much I decided to make some using my Hero Arts Supplies for this weeks HA Challenge - 'Tags'!

Ages ago I bought some acetate tags and they had been sitting in a draw waiting to be used! Once I had made one tag I had to go on & make 2 more! It got kinda addictive! Lol! I will most likely make more before Christmas!

For this first tag I stamped Hero Arts Holly Flourish Design Block onto the acetate tag using White StazOn. You can see this better in the photo below. I used some scraps of designer paper which are from SU! Dashing Collection. The coloring around the penguin I did using my Copics and I added a little bit of baby blue Stickles for the snow mound!

I kept this second tag really simple, I used one of my favorite holiday birds from the Holiday Dove collection as he fits perfectly inside my 1 3/8" circle punch!

I used some scraps of Spring Moss CS & Bitty Dot Paper from PTI & the darker green of the scallop circle is Old Olive from SU!

I decided to change the orientation of this last tag and again kept it simple. I used the Tiny Santa stamp from Hero Arts & colored him with my Copics & put a tiny bit of Frosted Lace Stickles on his hat bobble & brim!

The designer paper is again a scrap from the SU! Dashing Collection!

Hi Bev, love your tags!!! I have some Hero acetate tags in my craft room that I've never used - you've inspired me to dig them out! Have fun with your Papertrey goodies, I got mine a few days ago too - I've mounted them all but haven't had a chance to play with them yet...hopefully the weekend will remedy that, have a good one!

Hi there -- These are just great fun and I like your telling what to use/check out.

I found you through Anne at Gaal Creative and am very happy I did. I have two cats also... one is grumpy and the other grumpier, however. lol.

Take care!
