Waltzingmouse Rainbow of Ornament Tags

Happy Tuesday!  Since I've been kicking around tag designs for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Tag Challenge I though I would share with you a really simple one I came up with.  I took the large ornament stamp from the Vintage Ornaments set and stamped them in a whole rainbow of Momento ink colors.  I used a lighter shade ink to stamp the center, and then stamped the sentiment in black.  I strung some matching twine through an eyelet at the top and added a pretty loop bow and that's it - your done!
I'm new at glitter and have been experimenting with different ways to apply it where I want it.  The liquid glues make your paper buckle.  I've been using a simple inexpensive glue stick (courtesy of kids school stash) to apply adhesive where I want it.  It goes on thinly and my paper stays flat.   I made about 50 of these tags and they look great in every color.  With the twine already attached they will be a cinch to add on to all things holiday - presents, baked goods,  even my little Norfolk pine I picked up at the grocery store!!  I think "You're My Star" sentiment will be perfect on gifts for my special friends who seem to always be looking out for me.

These were a little tricky to photograph.  I wound up covering a book with white drawing paper and standing it up.  I taped the strings to the top of the covered book binding so the tags would stay put and lay properly.

I hope you like them.  Don't forget - Waltzingmouse Stamps is hosting a big tag contest with BIG prizes - 4 sets of stamps of your choice to one random winner.  You can get all the details here..  http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-tag-challenge.html
