Blog Hop - Something Gifty

Welcome once again to our little blog hop. This month Julie has chosen for us to do something gifty so to go along with my Tag Week I decided to tie it all together and do some tags for this too.

I made these tags with the MDS digital crafting program. Open Cards and Tags: Tag: 3-1/4 x3-1/4 Square: Create your own.  I added the five images from A Holly, Jolly Christmas to each tag along with the "to: from:" and then colored in each image using the Stamp Image Coloring Tool. You simply double click on the image and fill it in with the color of your choice. The reindeer's nose was done using the Freeform: Add a Brush Layer feature. I have hopes of making my own tutorials some day but until then, check out Julie's. The tags are actually white. I'm not sure why they look grey on the post.

For this set, I did the same thing but with a different stamp set. I used Winter Post and I added a textured Kraft card stock background. Careful, it's addicting.

  1. CUTE! I've never done tags in MDS! Thanks for the tip! :)

  2. You are so right about the addicting part!! These are so cute--and thanks for the shout-out on the video tutes!

  3. Such cute tags! I love having a fun tag for a gift, especially since my wrapping paper tends to be old grocery bags ;) It helps jazz up the gift a bit. Love it!

  4. Very cute! I know what you mean. It does get addicting. The cool thing about these little tags is that you can print off a whole sheet!
