Waltzingmouse May Release - Sneak Peek Day #2 Stitched Tags

If you are looking for my ePlay post - please click here.

Welcome to Day 2 of the WMS May Release Sneak Peeks - today the Design Team is using Claire's wonderful new Stitched Tags dies - which is a set of 3 sizes of tags with a lovely stitched edge on each one! They will be available to purchase on May 3rd.  I made Christmas tags today - layering all three together with a piece of black/kraft twine to attach them to the Christmas gift they will adorn!

I used lots of Waltzingmouse stamp sets for the sentiments and other stampings on each layer.  Some you can see - and others you have to move the tags over to reveal.  On the top white layer the stars are from Yonder Star and the 'for You' is from Around Christmas Time.
On the 2nd green layer - the 'Been Good" and peppermint candy are from Candy Jar Christmas - the 'No Peeking' is from Around Christmas Time.
and on the bottom red layer - the "Merry Christmas" and Open on the 25th are from Ornate Ornaments, the branch and holly berries are from Around Christmas Time.  I also added a scattering of green sequins for a little sparkle to each layer.
And here's what I stamped on the back of the tag so people would know who gave them this marvelous tag!
The TO and FROM are from Yonder Star, the 'Hope You Like It' is from the new set seen yesterday - Tag Collection 1 and the little decorative stamp in the top right corner is from Ornate Ornaments.
While I was at it -  I cut each tag in all three colors so I could make 3 tags - here are the other two with rotating colors!
I hope you will check out the other Design Teams Stitched Tag Creations -  we are all using different holidays on our tags so there will be a lot of fun inspiration!

I'm also linking this to the Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Holidays
