Impression Obsession - Quick and Simple....

New challenge for Impression Obsession begins today! 
The theme is quick and simple! I whipped up some quick, simple and SPARKLY gift tags! So come on and join us for this challenge and a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to shop for some new rubber from IO. Find all the details on how to play along on the Impression Obsession Blog
Check out the DT's simple creations today and get inspired to  whip out some last minute tags or cards! 


 The snow tag is super simple. I heat embossed the snow sentiment using Versamark and White Detail Embossing Powder. I die cut the snowflake out of kraft and white. I added double sided tape to the back of the kraft tag after I cut out the snow flake. Then I pieced the white snowflake in the empty spot. I filled in all the empty spots using Microfine silver glitter.

I used the Merry Tree Die for this quick tag. The sparkle doesn't show off well in the picture, but I assure you it's eye-catching! I die cut the Merry Christmas out of white card stock.

 I added Scor-Pal adhesive to card stock and then die cut the tag. I peeled off the protective layer, exposing the sticky. I added my die cut.... then dumped the glitter all over. I used my finger to burnish the glitter down.

I love how it looks finished... the die cut is embedded in the glitter. So much more interesting than just gluing the die cut to glitter paper.
