Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop- Holiday Tags

Happy Thanksgiving to all my PTI friends! This blog hop has been my favorite this year because our challenge was to create some holiday tags, a task I love to do. Tags are fairly simply to create and I wanted to challenge myself a bit, so I remembered an issue of PaperCrafts Magazine ( Card Style). This whole magazine was dedicated to finding your Card-Making Style among four very different styles. I challenged myself to create a tag in each one of the four styles, Fun & Cute, Clean & Graphic, Classy & Elegant and Shabby & Vintage. I was able to create the first three tags very quickly and easily as those styles are the ones I am most comfortable with. The last one, however (Shabby & Vintage) took for-ev-er! It is the style I struggle with the most and almost never make a card in this style (actually this is the second) I used lots of PTI stamp sets as well as a music stamp from Stampendous called Music Score to make all of these tags and I have to admit the very first one, with the little stocking, white cotton balls and mini green clothespin is my favorite. I loved making the background paper using a sentiment in Tiny Treats Christmas. The clothespin was dyed with green food coloring. Enjoy the blog hop and Happy Thanksgiving to all.
