Some Penguin Fun!

I needed to make some tags for the some holiday gifts and fell in love with a card that Kimberly Van Diepen posted at her blog Stampin by the Sea.

Christmas Cuties stamp set, Stampin' up!

I loved this card so much I almost bought the stamp set, Christmas Cutie.  I didn't purchase it originally and was really close to doing so just because of this card!  Happens to me all the time.  However, this time I used a little self-control and decided to try to see what I could do using the stamps I already had.  

So here is my version of Kimberly's technique.

I decided to use the Snow Place stamp set from the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  I decided that the Santa hat would help give this little guy a festive feel.

I loved the way Kimberly used the vellum to soften the background circle so I used the silver vellum paper to soften the real red 2" circle.  A little silver thread adds a little flair!

This tag turned out really cute.  I can't wait to use it to wrap some gifts!!

Helpful hint: Since the tag topper punches fit tags that are 2" wide, you can get 10 tags that are 2" by 4-1/4" tags or 8 tags that are 2" by 5-1/2".
