For my tags, I used paint chips as the common factor and then built around those. I picked up these long, thin paint chips the other day and so loved the shades on them.
The other common factor is the embossed, white background. This white, Core'dinations cardstock works so wonderfully with the Cuttlebug Embossing folders. The snowflake is a Cuttlebug die with an embossing folder and I used a border punch on the paint chip piece.
This tag uses a Stamper's Anonymous stamp. It was so fast and easy to use these trees because all I needed to do was to ink them with one green stamp pad. I gave the finished tag a spray of a couple colors of Glimmer Mist.
The flourish is also a Stamper's Anonymous stamp stamped over my paint chip.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
