Rogue Redhead Peek: Scrappy Christmas Tags

Another peek for you today, of Rogue Redhead Designs' Candy Kisses plate, coming out November 1st.  For these tags, I used some of the fun winter icons in the set, colored with Copic markers.  I cut out each of the designs and glued them to some white corrugated cardboard that I had covered in clear glitter.  I put that on top of a torn piece of cardstock scrap.  The bases of the tags are stamped with the snowflake motif from the companion plate, Snow Hugs.  I added some scraps of trim and some fuzzy sparkly ribbon.  I wanted to make a set of pastel tags for the girlie girls in the family - they could just as easily be done in deep vintage colors, with a background of vintage sheet music or text.  Hmmmm... maybe I'll do that next. ;)

Okay, I'm back.... Yep, I was gone for sumthin' like 14 hours so that I could do another set of tags, LOL!!!  But due to the magic of blogland.... in an instant, here ya go:
My vintage heart prefers these, I think.  But the young ones in the family prefer the top set.  Regardless... these stamps are quite versatile, no?  And I'm happy to have 8 tags done, tee hee.  These are also colored with Copics, then layered on top of vintage hymnal music sheets, then on top of felt, then patterned paper.  I used the same trim for all of these, since it reminded me of snowflakes.  (For some reason, the red felt I used on these looks black in the picture.  A photographer, I am not!)  I hope you'll have a chance to check out Rogue Redhead over the coming weeks... lots of fun designs are coming your way.  Happy Monday. :)

They all look like a lot of fun to make! The vintage ones I'll favor, but for one daughter it'd have to be the modern pastel look. Kids do love a change, don't they? ;)
