Big Day Birthday Tags — Monday Montage #37

Monday Montage Banner -- OctoberWelcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We have ten stampers who are sharing their latest creations with you, and all you have to do is click on the links at the bottom of each post to see all of them.

It seems like February is birthday month around here.  There are a couple in our house and several others among family and friends.  One thing I am always making at the last minute is tags for birthday presents.  Usually minutes before we are leaving for a birthday party, I am trying to put one together before we head out the door.

I love the Big Day stamp set, which is one of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets.  I thought it would be perfect to make some cute birthday tags.   I sat down to make one, and while I was at it, I thought I should make a few while I had the supplies out on my desk so that I’ll be ready for the next time I need one.

I pulled out my Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to color the images.  I also used little scraps of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.   Here’s a closer look at each one:

Since I made some extras, I thought it would be nice to have something in which to store them, so I decorated one of the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes.

Celebrate with Cake

Celebrate with CakeEven though February is a short month, I need a lot of birthday cards so I decided I’d better start stocking up.

I pulled out a fun Sale-a-Bration set, Big Day, and got to work.  I started by spreading some embossing paste (non SU!) over the Dots Decorative Mask.  While that was drying, I stamped the images on a Project Life Grid Card and colored them with some Blendabilities.
