Christmas Embossing Tinsel Personalized Name Tags

Yikes, not only have I been away so long, I've been sick and so busy that I am so behind on my Christmas makes. Christmas really seemed to come way too fast this year.  I'm only half way through my Christmas cards, but I have a bunch of stuff to show you this week, so please stay tuned. I decided to start with tags for Christmas presents to check off the list first, and all of these are made with Tim Holtz stamps from Stamper's Anonymous and Ranger Embossing Powders and Oxide Inks.
I tried to match the tags to these cute little bags, so I started with a gold embossed tree from the Tree Line set.
I stamped the plaid in Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink so I could see it on the black tag, and then embossed with Red Embossing Tinsel, after masking off the tree and inside.
I stamped the names in Tall Text using Picket Fence Distress Ink and Snowflake Embossing Tinsel. Green Embossing Tinsel was using on the green tags.
It was the Great Outdoors and Into the Woods for these tags, along with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink and Silver Embossing Tinsel.
To make the tag below, more of the same with the addition of Twisted Citron Oxide Ink and Lime Green and White Embossing Powder.
It was not too hard to emboss on top of other embossing, but I had to make sure not to put too much heat on the powders so it wouldn't spread too much.

  1. The only time of year when tags really get to do their job as tags! These are fabulous - love how you've matched them to the gift wrap - so clever. They're going to look amazing under the tree.
