I’ve been playing with an awesome new tag set from Kelly Purkey, the Tis The Season set is just adorable! As soon as I saw the ‘Happy Holidays to You’ sentiment I knew I wanted to ink it up in different colours the way Jennifer McGuire sometimes does. Jennifer just rocks the inky techniques :)
The set matches the medium tag dies from Simon Says Stamp so I cut a bunch of tags from Neenah solar white card and rummaged through some old ink pads to get colours to match Kelly’s December 2013 Project Kit – I love the unexpected Holiday colours :)
Then I happily got inky switching out the ink colours for each bit of the sentiment and then combining the sentiment tag with the great chevron one and a Funky Snowflake from Simon :) All I’ve got to decide with my second tag is whether the recipient has been naughty or nice …… hmmmmm!
Hope you have a great weekend :)

Stop. Making. Me. Need. Stuff!!!
Seriously stunning gorgeous candy coloured little tags!! Where did you get the twine from and which ink colours did you use? I am so in love with everything here!!!
I was raiding old stash for this T. The twine I think was Karen Foster? The inks a combination of I think retired SU, Versa color cubes and Memento? I think the Memento is still available that was the green in Bamboo Leaves? I’m being pretty hopeless with this one I’m afraid LOL
Gorgeous! LOVE the double tag idea!!!
Gorgeous tags, Debby! I love how you inked them up in different colors…such a fun idea! You always ‘play so well’ with your stamps and dies (and ink pads LOL)…thanks for sharing your ideas with us!
Your tags are spectacular, Debby! I love the non-traditional colors – these will look amazing on packages! Thanks for sharing this beautiful inspiration! I was also so happy to learn that Kelly’s stamps fit perfectly on the SSS medium tag dies! I purchased the tag dies awhile ago and I’ve been admiring this stamp set – now I know they work together perfectly!
Such pretty colours, and love the “swirly” twine :)
Gorgeous tags! I love the modern look with the selective inking technique! One of my favorites ;-)
Love the tags and your ink choices. I love how you used Jennifer’s inky technique of coloring each line with a different color. It takes time but the finished product is worth it. Fabulous job!
this color combo and bold design is fabulous my dear.
These are amazing! I love the color combo.
