Make it Monday #267 : Assembly line crafting

This week's video from the talented Laurie Willison was all about assembly line crafting.
I cut out a bunch of tags using one of the Tinsel and Tag dies in a few colours and some of the banners as well.
 I used my MISTI to stamp four tags and a bunch of banners all at once.  This makes it go so quickly and you can double or triple stamp and even use different colours for an ombre look.
I used my MISTI to stamp four tags and a bunch of banners all at once.  I used a bunch of sets that I had been itching to use from my last order - Holiday Greens and Holiday Fancy Pants plus Tinsel and Tag sentiments.
And I now understand what all the fuss about Delicata Gold ink is!! It really does look divine on cardstock!  I even stamped 12 kraft envelopes using Holiday Swoosh and Holiday Greens with Fresh Ink Fuschia and Delicata gold.  They are all ready for their labels and stamps!

When I address the tags, I will choose the banner I want to match - I have already put foam adhesive on the back of all of them and am planning to make some chalkboard tags with the black tags I cut.

So how are your holiday creations coming along?  Started yet?  Almost done?

Love your beautiful tags, Cara, and I agree 100% about the beauty of Delicata Gold...and silver, too. Think of you every time I use my MISTI. So glad you enabled me when you did. 👍

Wonderful tags! I love how shiny the gold details are on the kraft.
