An Inky Situation Linky Party #22

Happy Thursday!

It's time for the last Linky Party of the year with An Inky Situation.  This week we are celebrating by creating TAGS ... just in time for Christmas gift giving.  Join in on the fun and show us your TAGS!

Here are my TAGS for the Linky Party!
This is a pic of all the tags that I made.  I used the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags Bundle to make a bunch of tags.

This tag features the Pop & Place Apothecary tag punch out with a 1-1/4" Circle punch out.  The flags on either side are stamped images of Christmas Tagables Photopolymer stamp set 'Have the Merriest Christmas' that were cut from Whisper White cardstock.

Tag #2 is half of the Top Note punch out with a stamped image of Christmas Tagables 'Have the Merriest Christmas' that was cut from Whisper White cardstock.  I 'aged' this tag by sponging on Crumb Cake ink.  I used one of the three 'to'/'from' combos from the Christmas Tagables Photopolymer stamp set.

Tag #3 uses four of the punch outs from the Pop & Place kit:  Artisan Label punch, Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits and Window Frames Collection.  Stamps are from the Christmas Tagables Photopolymer stamp set.

Tag #4 uses the Bread Tag punch out and the Artisan label punch out from the Pop & Place Tag kit.  Stamp set used was Christmas Tagables stamp set.

The last tag in this series is the other half of the Top Note tag.  I used the template left from the punch out of the Hexagon to create a hexagon from Whisper White to stamp the Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas message from Christmas Tagables Photopolymer stamp set.  I freehand cut a larger hexagon to add a bit more color to the mix.  I also used the To and From arrow stamps from the Christmas Tagables Photopolymer stamp set. 

I had a ton of fun making these tags.  The Pop & Place Tag Kit comes with 70 + shapes to use.  Following is a complete list of items used.
Stampin' Up Supplies used were:
Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags Starter Bundle (135290)
    Included in this bundle is the tag book, Christmas Tagables Stamp Set, Soft Suede Stampin'
    Spot and a Clear Block C.  This bundle is available until December 31, 2013.

AIS Linky Party #21 - Stripes

Happy Thursday,

So have you had snow, ice, rain or all three in the last week?  Well the ice is still here in my yard and still continuing to thaw.  I think it will all be gone after today.  It was beautiful, but a mess for driving.

Welcome to another week at An Inky Situation.  This is Linky Party #21 and we are working with STRIPES this week.  Join in on the fun and post a project at An Inky Situation.

Here are my stripes for this week's offering:

This was a fun challenge for me.  It went very quickly.  Didn't hurt that I was playing around with some new 'toys'.

Stampin' Up! products used:
Cardstock:  Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler
Patterned Paper:  Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack
Tags:  Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags
Stamps:  Wishing You Clear-Mount Stamp Set and Christmas Tagables Photopolymer Stamp Set
Ink:  Old Olive Stampin' Pad
Fibers:  Whisper White Baker's Twine
Embellishments:  Regals Candy Dots
Tools:  Circles Collection Framelits Dies
Adhesive:  Stampin' Dimensionals

Shop with me HERE!

Non-Stampin' Up! products used:
Adhesives:  ATG and Ultra Thin Glue Dots

I am loving working with the Stampin' Dimensionals.  I have used many different types of foam dimensional products.  Some are too tall and you worry about them going through the mail, some are too small and you have to use a ton of them.  In the past I preferred to work with foam tape because I got dimension on my cards without all of the BULK.  Well, I think I am LOVING Stampin' Dimensionals even more because of the versatility of these small adhesive wonders.  If you haven't worked with them I urge you to get some and try them out.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting,
