Christmas Cuties

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge.  
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps:

I decided to make a bunch of Christmas tags using some of my all time favorite Bugaboo Christmas images.  Unfortunately, some of them are discontinued, but they are still my favorite.  Here are the tags:
 All the tags were made from scraps from one of my favorite Christmas paper packs.  I die cut the tag shape and adhered strips of paper to the tag, then trimmed off the extra with my scissors.  The solid strips are actually the little strips at the top of the sheets of paper that attach them to the binding of the paper pack; nothing wasted here!  Here is the most adorable polar bear, probably my favorite Bugaboo image:
 I used a banner die for the sentiments, dry embossed and inked for definition.  Love this cute little skating penguin:
 I colored all of the images to coordinate with the colors in the paper strips, even the ornament this sweet snowman is holding:
 After I made this tag, I added some sparkle and shimmer with some perfect pearls mixed with water.  I brushed it across the tag.  You can see the shimmer in the photo below.
 If the adorable polar bear isn't my favorite image, then this sweet little reindeer is!!  Oh, I just love him!!
 And last but not least is another cute, little penguin.
And that, my friends, are my little, Christmas tags.  I so love using up patterned paper scraps this way.  The tags are so adorable and are perfect for adding to a Christmas package.
