Sentimental Sundays - TAGS and a DT call

Before I move on to my project I just wanted to share good news - Sentimental Sundays is having a DT call until Oct. 18th!! So if you want to have fun crafting in a very friendly bunch, check the details out on the challenge blog.

I have had that Penny Black stamp set with whimsical animals for 12 days of Christmas for a while and never used it - so this year my goal is to make a set of tags with it. Good thing Sentimental Sundays had challenge theme "tags" to get me started, lol

I used a kraft luggage tag as a base, stamped it with Life Defined stamp from Whimsy STamps in Tea Dye first and then with big poinsettias from Vintage Christmas set in Vintage Photo ink. I sponged the edges with Vintage Photo too.

Then I stamped the image and some small poinsettias from Vintage Christmas set on kraft card, coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and cut out. The fancy sentiment label is from Whiff Of Joy.

Little tag on the ribbon flower is stamped with gift label stamp from the same Vintage Christmas set and cut out with Spellbinders tag die.

The swirls and random pearls are all done with Viva Pearl Pen in Gold. Tiny bit of pleated patterned paper is from Crate Paper. To make sure nothing will fall off in a pile of presents under the tree I stuck the whole thing together with glue gun. It's REALLY sturdy now, lol.

I'm pretty happy how this tag came out and I sure had fun putting it together.

I'd like to enter following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Hooray for the Holidays
Creative Cottage Challenge - Bling it On
For Fun Challenges - Use something from your stash that you bought and never used
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Tagalicious
If the Shoe Fits - Don't Stress, Distress

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!!
Hugs
