Christmas Tags

These are three tags that were part of the 'make & take' at my new Stampin' Up! Annual & Holiday catalogue launch on Sunday. They are made from Raspberry Ripple card stock and this one above has Whisper White and Early Espresso. We used the Sentsational Seasons stamp set that has a matching die to cut out the elements. For the first tag we used the new Early Espresso embossing powder.
For the gingerbread man we used the new Summer Starfruit stamp pad and stamped on Soft Suede then sprinkled with the new and VERY YUMMY Sugar & Spice scented embossing powder - it is DIVINE!! We used the white gel pen to bring out the features on little man!
This last one uses the Raspberry Ripple ink and the other new scented embossing powder of Peppermint Sticks - I am not 100% sure on this one - as it didn't seem to hold it's scent once heated as well as the Sugar & Spice one did BUT if you sprinkled a "little" bit in an envelope containing something with this on the smell will penetrate much better.
They were fun to make and you can use them as a tag on a gift of add them to a card.

It's a cold cold day in Auckland, New Zealand today but the sun is shining and will start to thaw us out - a good day to keep busy in my craft room! Hope your day is a good one too!
