Nested Label Holiday Tags with Cynde

CatherineChristmas, Copic Markers, CP Designs, CPD Ink, Die Cutting, Valentine's Day

Hey folks, Cynde here! Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm very excited to be here today to share some lovely products from the All The Trimmings release! 
I'm a huge fan of tags. It doesn't matter what time of the year it is, I love to give them out. I've even been known to tie them on my daughter's backpack like a stealthy Ninja Mom as a surprise for her. Come Christmas time, I really go crazy (ier?) for them. It's even better when I can make a bunch at one time!
I was super excited to be able to use the Nested Label Dies to make some tags! These dies stack beautifully on a card front, but I thought why not make tags too? 
Before I did any die cutting, I laid out the images from the Seasonal Sentiments and Borders Stamp Set on Premium White Cardstock, then I laid out the dies around them to get an idea on how big I needed them to be. Then I die cut 4 larger labels and 4 of the smaller ones.
After I had all of my my tags cut, I lined up the border stamp I wanted to use as well as the sentiment on the 4 7/8″ x 6 1/8″ Stamp Block and stamped them in Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. I stamped both of them first, then removed the sentiment, rotated the block and stamped the border again to create a frame around my sentiment.
For the larger labels, I went direct to paper with Samba and Mardi Gras inks to add a little bit more color to each finished tag.
When I chose the colors to color in my images, I matched them as best I could to the Samba and Mardi Gras Inks so they would have a cohesive look.
To finish these off, I adhered the smaller label on top of the larger label and punched a hole in them with a standard hole punch and tied some twine through the hole.
That's it! Easy peasy.
I hope you enjoyed my tags today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time.
