Belli Challenge #42 - Gift Tags

Good Wednesday morning!!! Its Wednesday and we all know this is Belli Challenge Day. This weeks Belli Challenge is Gift Tags!!! I have found I really LOVE to make gift tags. I really enjoyed this challenge.
Gifts tags can be as simple as you would like, to the more elaborate. Its just depends, Im sure, as to how much time you have and are willing to put into your gift tags. I have made a few different sets of gift tags to share with you today. I used some of my most favorite sets and I found, there are A LOT of sets that can be used as GREAT gift tag makers. I start off with my most basic tags and then more forward to the more elaborate. I also tried something I have been wanting to do and try and that is to move away from the most standard traditional colors for cards/tags to show you, it doesnt always have to be pink or blue for baby tags or red and green for christmas tags. My goal for these tags was to use the In-Colors from Stampin Up and always use my MOST favorite color, Chocolate Chip with them. I didnt finish with ALL of the In-Colors, but as I do, I will share them here with you. The majority of my gift cards are 3 x 3 in size. Just as long as you have some small envelopes (from Stampin Up's big catalog) laying around, you can make a 3 x 3 gift card anytime and with any color.
The first set of tags were made with Pacific Pointe and Chocolate Chip and the stamps from To You and Yours (my most favorite stamp set in the catalog!!!). Very basic, stamp and go.
The second set also uses Pacific Pointe and Chocolate Chip and the stamps are from Deer Friends. As you can see, still very basic, I just added Cuttlebug Embossing onto the top layer instead of using designer series paper. Still very cute and effective.
The next 3 pictures are made with Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss. The stamps I used were Punches Three with is a Level Two Hostess set. This stamp set was designed to work with the Scalloped Square punch and the Wide Oval punch. I love using punches in my art work and this is a great example of the punches and stamps that work great together.
The Scalloped gift tags are a more elaborate gift tag that I just had so much fun making. It is made with punches also. I used Bella's Bloom stamp set with these and designer paper from Bella Rose and a retired paper called East Coast Prep. I found a tutorial for the scalloped gift cards on Andrea Walfords blog. She is just an awesome lady with great tutorials. The tutorial can be found here: http://andreawalford.com/?p=594 . These scalloped gift cards also fit into the small envelopes used for the 3 x 3 gift cards.
