Welcome to the monthly NinaB Designs team blog hop. For this month's hop, Nina challenged the team to create an ornament or tags, which will come in handy in the upcoming holidays. I made some CAS Christmas tags! I decided to play with some negative die-cutting and paper-piecing techniques for my tags.
I used the tree and star dies from Spellbinders Sweet Folk Art to create the negative space, propped up with some foam tape, I backed the tree with some embossed green card (Seeing spots) and some yellow card behind the star. To create the simple garland decorations for the tree I die-cut the small buttons from Spellbinders Sewing Elements. I adhered these together before adding to my tag. The sentiment stickers I used on all the tags are from We've Got Your Sticker - Merry from SRM Stickers.
For the angel tag, I taped the various die elements in place from Spellbinders Sweet Folk Art to create the negative space, then I die cut the pieces in different colored cardstock to paper piece the angel. The angel die is definitely my favorite in this set.
For my final tag, I used the little house die from Spellbinders Home Sweet Home and used the same techniques as my previous tags. To make my little house more festive I added a string of colored lights in the form of buttons from Spellbinders Sewing Elements. The gingham ribbon is from Craft Fairy.
Here are the products I used for my tags.
