Christmas Tags

Happy Friday! Thanks for your sweet comments about my little woot woot post. I didn't make it to the Design Team, but I was so honored about being one of the finalists already :)
Now to some little tags! I made these for the Hero Arts Challenge "Gift Tags and Handmade Gifts" :



These are hybrid, using the new sweet Hero Arts digi-kit "Feathered Friends". I printed the bird onto different papers and paper-pieced it. The edges of the labels are inked with white ink. I like the effect of this on Kraft:


And a close-up of a bird:




Are you looking forward to the weekend? Any plans? I hope your day is beautiful! Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa x

Love these, Vanessa! These Holiday Birds are my all time favorite Hero Arts stamp. They look so adorable on your tags! How cool they are now on a digi kit!

Helloooooooo, lovely, lovely, lovely one! These tags are positively DARLING! Such a great image and excellent use of your smashing design sense ... *swoon!* Thanks for the terrific inspiration, dear girl: as ALWAYS!!!!

Ach, sind die schön, Vanessa! Der weiße Rand ist super dazu. Welches weiße Kissen ist eigentlich Dein Favorit? Bisher habe ich noch keins gefunden, mit dem ich so richtig zufrieden bin.

Hab ein schönes Wochenende und mach Dir keine Gedanken, nächstes Mal bist Du vielleicht mit im DT.

Liebe Grüße, Tina

Zauberhafte Hängerchen, gefallen mir wahnsinnig gut, die Form, das Vögelchen, der schöne Schriftzug, der weiße Rand, alles passt wunderbar zusammen.

Herzliche Grüße

Ps.: Schade, dass es mit dem DT nicht ganz geklappt hat, aber immerhin warst Du unten den letzten und darauf kannst Du schon stolz sein
