Doodle Pantry December Release

Oh my goodness! You should see the release this month. The sets are totally amazing!! Just look at some of these demos for example and you will know what I am talking about. Lol. So make sure to see the rest of the stamps at Doodle Pantry Blog

Check This Out @ The Store
And this one! Sew great for all those crafty sewing pals. 

And this one, is the one that I used for my tags. Isn't it adorable.

I made these tags for my friend's two little kids for their Christmas gifts.
 I think that they will like them. I hope so anyway.

My tags were cut using my Cricuit machine and than embossed with my friend's
Cuttle Bug embossing machine. I used a snowflake embossing folder by Darice. This was my first attempt to ever use pre-colored digital stamp images. Gasp!! Lol. Yes, I know!! I always colour my own but this time around I used the pre-coloured ones. I printed them out twice and the first images were cut out and glued to the tag. The second set was fussy cut and popped up with pop dots on the first set. This gives great dimension and looks great. The tags were distressed with Ranger Distress Inks
and embellishments were added for a final touch.

These tags are being submitted to the following challenges:

Take Care & God Bless
