Sweet Stampin' ~ No Squares!

Hey there crafty friends, it's time for our latest challenge at Sweet Stampin' to kick off and this time, we are hosting a 'No Squares' challenge. We're looking forward to seeing the shaped cards, fancy folds and different ideas that folks share for this challenge. I originally made a different card for this challenge, but decided last minute to swap it out for this little trio of tags. I didn't get a chance to share these when I made them at Christmas and they are so cute with this lovely bear from Colorado Craft Company. I kept them super simple as I was making extra tags for quick Christmas parcel finishes. 

I didn't colour the images, but simply stamped them and used several different combinations of Washi Tape to complete the designs. I added them to parcels for my littlest nephew and two of my young nieces and they were greatly enjoyed, which was sweet.

I added matching Washi Tape to cardstock and diecut the eyelets to match for each tag for that extra coordinated touch. I topped each tag with organza ribbon in their matching colourway and a fancy ribbon. Black bobbles for the black and white tag, red gingham for the red tags. I finished the tags by tying striped baker's twine around the ribbons, again in their matching colourway.

I must confess I was super delighted with these sweet tags and I think the lovely image really got to shine and take centre stage with these simple designs. I will colour the image next time, but love these simple, classic understated designs for a quick Christmas gift tag and it was super fun to use up some of my massive stockpile of Washi Tapes! 

Thanks for popping in to visit today, I hope you'll come join in the fun with us for this challenge. Be sure to check out what the rest of my talented teamies got up to for this challenge too, you can click through to the challenge blog on the banner above. I of course will be back soon with another crafty adventure very soon. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Challenge Entry:
As You Like It: Love or Friendship ~ again I'm torn on this one! I've made these sweet 'love' tags, for my nieces and nephew! So they're 'love of family' rather than romantic love cards, still fall into 'love' rather than friendship themed, I think.
