Tag the penguins

Hi

I just adore the cute images from Brrr  stamp set available at http://stores.ajillianvancedesign.com/brrr-stamp-set-by-whimsie-doodles/ and  I’ve been itching to make more projects since I got them.

For today , I m tagging the penguins 😉 Yes, Its gift tags made with these cuties.

You can see the post in whimsy doodles blog too –

There are three gift tags in total – made with the same stamp set. They would be perfect with gifts like mittens or caps or scarfs.

They also go together with the cards I made previously.

penguin tag 1

This gift tag is about the penguin sliding down a snow hill. Whoosh!!! Just make some strokes and it ‘d look like he’s moving downhill .

penguin tag 2

Mittens galore! The patterned paper for this penguin is so perfect and the lacy ribbon completes the look . I tried using all accessories like the mittens, scarf and ear muffs in these gift tags.

penguin tag 3

Snow is falling! The snowflake stamp is pretty to use. A wink of stella clear brush gives the shimmery look of the penguin’s fur, isn’t it? The ear muffs are all puffed up with liquid appliqué. Pick a ribbon of your choice , its a gift tag or attach it to a card base, it’s a card.

Look for the details of making these on Thursday!
