Ornament Keepsakes Reverse Applique Tags

Pin It Now! I have great news!  (for me, anyway) It's snowing!!!  I love, love, love the snow.  It puts me in the mood for my favorite holiday, which of course is Christmas.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we get to play a little with Christmasy things, making something that we all need and tags!
 These were made using the Reverse Applique technique.  I learned to make them from Ilina Crouse's project at Ustamp With Dawn's Technique Boutique event that's going on right now.  I plan to try out lots of new-to-me techniques, and this was a good one to dip my toe in, so to speak!
 They're made using Brushed Gold Specialty paper, and the Ornament Keepsakes Framelits.  I used 2 new sets of DSP from the current Holiday Catty, they are Candlelight Christmas (the green pattern) and Snow Festival (the Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso).
 I trimmed them out with Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle ribbon and a few others I had on hand.
 I really like them, I think they look good enough to give to my mother-in-law, who is pretty fancy :D

So I know you will need a gift tag or two this holiday season, why not hop over to HSS and share a tag project with us?

By the way, I hope you and your loved ones are not involved in this treacherous storm, Sandy.  My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is suffering through this difficult situation.  

Have a blessed and creative day!  Erika
