For this project, I had so many ideas of cards and layouts to make using this wonderful stamp that I had to stop myself.  I often get carried away and start making something complicated.  Then I have friends and customers who love what I make but tell me there is NO WAY they could make that.  So this time, I decided to show you a very simple project using this stamp that ANYBODY can make!!  First my project:

I made Christmas gift tags!!  Now you'll notice that I haven't placed any ribbons at the top of the tags yet.  I do have a reason for that.  I may end up just adhering the top of the tag to my gifts with some double sided tap and so I didn't want to cut up my ribbon just yet.

Now what's really wonderful about this stamp set is that a number of the images in the stamp set coordinate with our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  That makes it even easier to make this project!  Just set your Cricut to 2", press "Autofill" and watch how quickly your machine cuts out about 20 of these cute ornament tags on one sheet of cardstock!  Then I took some Ruby and Juniper ink and stamped my images.  Ta-da!  Done!!  Fast and easy!
