Cupcake Challenge 195

Hello everyone, today over on Cupcake Challenge 195 it is my turn to choose the challenge and I chose the theme of tags. Once again, we are sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp and they are giving one lucky winner a $20 gift certificate to spend in their store.

I am also entering my tags for the following challenges; Simon Says Stamp and Secret Crafter Challenge 188 both have a theme of anything goes. Now, before I go any further I must warn you there are loads of pictures!!

I decided to prepare myself for christmas early as I'm always a last minute girl, so I have made a load of tags using various stamp sets from Waltzingmouse.....details of all the sets are given at the end of this post. For each of my tags I have used memento tuxedo black ink, cut them out using the relevant nestie and distressed them using vintage photo distress ink. Finally I added an extra long length of satin ribbon, to enable them to be tied around a bottle, bag, or gift.

For the standard tag shape I just used my corner chomper on the 1/2 inch setting to round off the corners.

Here are some finished off with green ribbon.

Burgundy ribbon....

And purple ribbon....

And finally, a picture of all 24 tags!!!!
