Doodlebug Assorted Tags

What happens when you take assorted Doodlebug Stamps & Dies
and combine them with plain kraft tags and some coloring?
A delightful collection of tags for any occasion!

To begin, I sorted through the various sets of stamps and chose those that wouldn't be too busy as a background.  Next, I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Ink onto pre-cut kraft tags.
I find that colored pencils (I used Prismacolor w/ a colorless blender) work beautifully on kraft.  For extra whimsy, I also used a white gel pen on a few of the tags!

After completing the tag backgrounds I moved onto stamping images to layer onto the tags.
As you can see, some colored and stamped nicely and some didn't LOL!
My process included selecting some of my favorite images, so not all of them were used
for this project.  

For the larger background images, I decided to stamp only two or three times.
And some images, such as the "love you" heart, was simply stamped without anything 
else added to it!

If you'll notice the nest that the two birds are sitting on...that's
the crescent moon stamp!  It's so much fun to see how all  of the various
images can be layered together.

For a few of tags I used some of the larger, basic-shaped dies to create little backdrops for the colored images.  Below, an upside-down heart was used!

After adding the die-cut images with foam adhesive, I went back and stamped sentiments
that were attached to the tags.  Again, it was fun to sort through the stamp collections and find just the right greeting for each one!

Lastly, enamel shapes and sprinkles, along with a chunky twine hanger were given to each!

The tags can be added to gift bags, lunch boxes, card fronts or even used as ornaments.  
I hope that you'll give them a try!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
