TE Release Day: More Holiday Grumpiness


So today is the day! The new releases from Taylored Expressions are now available in the TE Shop. There is so much fabulousness this month and it is difficult to choose a couple of favorites but I’m thinking the Picture Perfect dies and the Little Bits – Penguin need to be on the top of my shopping list. And because I just love the grumplings I used the new Holiday Grumplings stamp set and Holiday Grumplings dies to make a couple of tags.


I used a couple of Build a Tag die sets and the Little Bits – Ornaments to cut out the pieces. The designer paper was cut to size with a trimmer and then the ends were snipped into flag shapes using scissors. I stamped the moose and penguin images on Sugar Cube cardstock and colored with Copic Markers, finishing with a touch of Glossy Accents here and there.


I die cut the ornaments from Metallic Neutrals cardstock and strung them on a bit of jute. I adhered them in place on the tag using a bit of glue here and there and foam tape behind the ornaments. I topped them with a couple of sequins. I finished the tag by adding bakers twine.


If one tag is fun to make, two tags are even more fun!
