tags, tags and more tags

well, not really. Theres only two tags to share tonight, but hopefully I'll have a few more to share by tomorrow. I'm on a tag making kick right now. Getting ready for the holidays and they're quick and easy to make. Gotta love that!

Yesterday I shared a card that I made using the cupcake from the Party Animals Lizzie Anne stamps. Today I'll share the cute bird image. I just love this set!!! The flowers in the background are from the Celebration Frames set. This really is a simple tag. I stamped and chalked the flowers, added a bit of white to the flower center with a gel pen. The bird is stamped and watercolored. I used to cut my layouts down 1/8 inch on two sides so they would fit in page protectors easier. I say used to because now I'm too lazy to actually put them into page protectors, lol! Thats a project for another day. I reach for those scrap paper strips quite often to add a bit of color to the designs.

supplies used:
stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs Party Animals, Celebration Frames

This next tag is a really simple one. I stamped the holly and the frame in versamark. Embossed in white embossing powder. I added a cuttlebugged strip of kraft cardstock. And finished it off by stapling the frame and the ribbon onto the tag. Simple!
