Howdy, peeps! Happy first day of August! Time is going by so fast that it’ll be Christmas again before we know it! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for a new challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #148 – Old School! We’d love to see your old/vintage or back to school project! Seems I’m always in Christmas mode, so I created some hybrid vintage Christmas tags! I’ve been a fan of Free Vintage Digital Stamps for a number of years and had this adorable image in my arsenal so I decided to use it!
I resized and printed the digital image six times on Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft cardstock and cut them with a stitched banner die. I cut six slightly larger double-stitched rectangles from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock, adhered a die cut digital image to each one. Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set, I stamped ‘To’ and ‘From’ on the back of each one in black ink. I created hole reinforcements from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock with 1/4″ and 1/2″ circle punches, and adhered one to the front and back of each tag. I added green hemp crafting cord and a tiny iridescent gemstone to the top of the tree on each tag.
And one more look at the set… aren’t these just adorable?! Gotta love vintage! ;)
