(I know – I’m posting a little early. But I don’t want to forget with all the partying going on here 🙂 )
Its another 4th Friday… you know what that means… So – if you are not out there shopping… come join the fun!
This month our challenge is “Tag – you’re it”.

You prize? This month its my all time favorite Kraftin Kimmie stamp – Clara and the bird.
The rules – pretty simple. Please include only newly created projects (although feel free to combine this challenge with others out there in blogland). For this month – feel free to enter as many projects as you’d like. Please link back to this challenge if at all possible. You have until midnight (EST) on Monday, Dec. 6 to enter.
To enter, just use the little froggy face at the bottom of this post to link up your creation.
For my tag project, I created a tin full of tags.
Its no secret that I adore Eat Cake Graphics images. I got to use a whole bunch of them to create my tags. So fun!
The tags are small folded cards and I sized them to fit in the square tin. The kraft base is 2 3/8″ by 4 3/4″ – scored in the middle. Then I layered a scalloped square Spellbinders die on top. The images were stamped and cut out using a smooth square die and then colored with Copics. I also added a little Burlap Distress ink around the edges of the white squares. With the images layered with foam tape (as I did here), the tin holds 9 tags.
Some of the images I wanted to use were larger than the square. So I just cut and embossed my paper, and then stamped the part of the image I wanted before removing the die. I find I get the best impression when I do this with a pad beneath the paper. I use a sheet of craft foam. (Make sure you clean your die after stamping so you don’t get ink smudges on your next project).
For the tin itself, I covered the outside with a strip of kraft cardstock and then wrapped ribbon around it. I added the sentiment from the Mr. and Mrs. Clause cling set, also cut with Spellbinders dies. Last, I wrapped twill ribbon around the lid of the tin.
Here are the stamp sets I used. All of the images here come from Eat Cake Graphics (painfully cute huh?):
So that is my little project – I had a lot of fun creating it. Hope everyone here in the US is having a fabulous Thanksgiving!
