Hero Arts Holiday Tag Challenge

Hello my friends! Hope you had a great weekend. I was finally able to put up our Christmas decorations and tree on Saturday. I plan on sharing some photos with you soon. Today, I am waiting for some snow! My town is under a sever winter storm warning and there's talk of a lot of snow. Just trying not to get my hopes up too much in case nothing much happens.

The last challenge over at the Hero Arts blog was to create Holiday Tags. I really enjoy making tags so I couldn't pass the challenge up. Here is what I came up with... I went with an unusual but fun Christmas color combo of: Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry and Gray. I kept them super simple by stamping and cutting out an image (from Winter Swirls), stamping a sentiment (from Hero Arts Holiday Messages) over the stamped image and the tag, then attach the image with dimensional adhesive. Finished the tag off with satin ribbon tied to the top with embroidery floss.

Here is the Melon Berry tag, with a snowflake button...
Here is the Aqua Mist tag, with an ornament hung from embroidery floss...
Lastly is the Spring Moss tag, embellished with a rhinestone star topped tree...
Well, thanks for stopping in today. Hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful start to your week.
