Just Us Girls #267 - Color Week

Happy Saturday!  Another Saturday means another challenge from Just Us Girls.  This week is our color week, and Sharyn chose red, turquoise, and gold or yellow.  I love red and turquoise together and add gold to that...what a fab combo!
I love making tags, don't you?  I made several last year and they looked so pretty on my gifts.  So I made more for this year.
When I thought of gold, I immediately pulled out this jingle bell stamp and embossed it in gold.  Adding the actual jingle bells to the top of the tag and some twine was the perfect touch!  All the pieces are inlaid, so with the exception of the bells, it's a flat tag.

The next tag uses Tag Sale #4 and a really old stamp set from 2008!  I cut the tag from white and red.  Then on the red one, I die cut a circle in the middle and inlaid the embossed piece.  I embossed the image in gold embossing powder.  Since the turquoise ribbon had polka dots on it, I decided to add polka dots around the tag.

The backs of the tags are where I added the to/from message.  I like the "Santa was here" sentiment.
The sentiments fit nicely on the back side of this one as well.

You can see more from the DT and our November guest designer on these blogs.

Beautiful tags! Great idea to inlay the pieces making it flat and so cute adding the real jingle bells. That round tag is so pretty, love those polka dots and the way you tied the ribbons on top.
