Guest Designer Monday with TGF

Well, Farmies, this is my last post as the guest designer!  Where did this month go?  I had such a great time playing with the newly released stamps and creating some tutorials for you.  I'll still be around... you can't kick this gal off the Farm, that's for sure... I'm a total Farm addict! :)

For my last project, I wanted to share a few tags I made, using the new "Holiday Blessings" and "Sparkling Season" clear stamp sets.

Have I mentioned how AWESOME these clear stamps are?  The quality is amazing and they stamp such perfectly clear images.  I stamped the images onto watercolor paper, colored them in with Distress Inks and covered them with Stickles.  The "WISHES" letters were individually paper-pieced out of coordinating paper.  I die-cut the images with a Nestabilities die and inked around the edges.  The main tags themselves are just larger sizes of the same dies.

The tags were cut from designer paper paper and were inked around the edges before I removed them from the metal die.  I punched a hole in the top and added an eyelet to each one.  I then threaded through some different ribbons and tied them at the top with bits of lace or baker's twine.

The cut images were then placed over the ribbon and adhered with dimensional adhesive so they would stand out a bit.  I added a tiny jingle bell to each bow to finish it off.  Now they are ready to added to any wrapped gift, or tied onto a box or jar of goodies!

These were really fun and quick to make!  These clear stamp sets can be used in so many different ways.  They are definitely a must-have for this holiday season.

Thanks, everyone, for making me feel so welcome on The Farm this month.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week! :)
