holiday gift tag

Welcome to a fun blog hop! The Studio Katia September products have just been released and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways.

You should have arrived from Dana Gong and Stephen Kropf is your next stop. If you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog!

Today I made 4 holiday gift tags. I use lots of them during the holiday season and it’s great to have some handy. Some of the designs do not scream Christmas so they can be used for winter birthdays. To create all 4 of my tags I used the Holiday Village stamp set and the matching dies and to create the tags I used the Shaker Tag die set.

Here is a shaker gift card, with the lovely holiday houses from the stamp set. In the shaker window I added Iridescent Ice flakes.

For this tag I created my little scene by using trees and a house from the stamp set and I also stamped the snowflakes on my background.

Christmas shaker gift tag

And here is a shaker gift tag in traditional Christmas colors. I kept everything pretty simple and used the Christmas confetti inside the window. I also embellished my tag with red ribbon and a gold jingle bell.

And finally here is my last one in a lovely clean color combination. I love kraft and white when it comes to winter projects! I repeated the same techniques that I used in the previous tags but kept everything very subtle. To add some sparkle I added a few of the Iridescent Ice Flakes.
