CAS-ual Fridays CFC80, Simon Says Stamps, and Stampin' Royalty Challenge #152 Tags!

CFC80: Create Clean And Simple Gift Tags

Edited 2012-11-30
Just checked out the CAS-ual Fridays blog and discovered that this tag will work for their latest challenge CFC80 - Create Clean & Simple Gift Tags.  Yippeee! This week's generous sponsor is Bossy Joscie Flair. Click on the above link, check out the details and get your Christmas tags linked up!

While visiting the ever so talented fellow Canadian Barb at Kinsale Creations,  I was pleased to discover several new challenges.

Take a minute to check out THE cutest, sweetest, mini gift card set (complete with a container) that Barb has whipped up!  And check this....she is linking her project to seven (yes, 7 !!!) different challenges.  Now that is one efficient craft move!

One of the new challenge blogs is Stampin' Royalty.  They are currently  hosting a tag challenge.  I just completed the prototype for my Christmas tags, so I decided to link it up to their challenge. My Christmas theme colors this year are red, white & black (you should see the awesome r/w/b wrapping paper I found).

The bow die (without the ribbon ends) and stitched mat are from Lil' Inker Designs.  I created my own striped paper, the tree stump is the bottom portion of the SU Tiny Tag punch, the tree shapes are hand cut, snowflake embossing folder.

One tag done, nine million to go!

I am also entering this tag into Simon Says Stamps Challenge Anything Goes

Happy crafting!



  1. Just too cute...I love the red sparkle bow and the little tree decorations, just so cute!!!!

  2. Fab design, Geri ... scrumptious glittery bow and baubles and I love the dimension with the embossing and layering ... another winner! Anita :)

  3. Love the simple shapes and the bold colours. Link it up to CASual Fridays- Gift tags!

  4. Ok, so this is just another example of your complete brilliance!!!! Perfect color palette, perfect sparkles, and I love how the bow tops the tree. I just might have to CASE this! Seriously, I am awed. Wowsa.

  5. I think, finally, I have had one too many little yellow pills. I am, surely, in card heaven, where I am bowing before the Tag Of All Tags. I can only stare, mute, as its spendor renders me speechless.

  6. This is super-smart, Geri, I love it! It reminds me of a dinner jacket with a red bow tie! Would look fab on a bottle of wine ;)

  7. Awesome tag! I love the way you used the glitter and that bow tie die! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  8. Love all that rich red glittr, Geri! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week.

  9. Pretty sweet. Like the cheerful colors too.
