Christmas In July | Tags…Simplistic Elegance Be Thy Name

One of the best parts of my job is getting to see what other people make with KBS goodies. Particularly, each time my creative team sends me an email with their gorgeous works, I get giddy. And today’s grouping of simplistically elegant tags from Nichol Magouirk is no exception.

I am not what you’d call a traditional ‘stamper’. And that is why I make the stamps I do. I like words that accentuate a page or designs where you can make a beautiful+simple tag or card. For those that wonder if stamping is for you…take a look at these amazing tags made with white cardstock, stamps and gold embossing powder. How awesome will these be to have on hand for your gifts, scrapbooking or cards?

simplistic elegance.


And I love how Nichol took a variety of KBS tags,
cut them in white cardstock, and added a little shiny gold.


Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I’m fairly certain that my obsession with all things white & gold is still in full force for the upcoming holiday season! I love the simple elegance of gold embossing on white tags so I gathered up several of Kerri’s awesome tag cut files and paired them with the incredible new stamp images from her Believe and Holiday Magic stamp sets and stamped and embossed lots and lots of gift tags! These gift tags work great tied to a package but you could also adhere one to a card or scrapbook page easily! Pretty string, twine and ribbons tied through the tops of each tag are the perfect finishing touch.

And if you are going to use these for gift tags, consider using Kerri’s Annie or even Kramer alphabet stamp sets to customize the backs with “to” and “from”.

Need a handmade gift? Tuck these tags into a vellum bag, tape it shut with some sparkly washi tape, secure a gold bow (made with one of Kerri’s designs of course!) and add one of the small tags to the front and voila!…a great gift! Pair it with roll or two of coordinating wrapping paper and tape and it would make a really great gift!

So have I convinced you nontraditional stampers (like me) that stamping just may be your cup of tea now? :)

    Today’s tags are gorgeous! Loved yesterday’s too. I’m supposed to be limiting my spending but these posts are making me rethink that. I love these stamps!!
    How do you do the gold reinforcements on the 2nd to last photo? Is that a die cut?

      The gold reinforcments are part of that tag die cut. I cut mine from some gold foil paper.

  7. […] And now for our last Posts of Christmas Past. Hmm. I think I want to go with one of my all-time favorites from our design team. It is something from our Christmas in July this year, but in the spirit of all things classically simple and beautiful–and gold and white, which is my motto these days, here are the gorgeous tags from Nichol Magouirk. That teeny gold tree from Believe is one of my very favorite stamps. To see the entire assortment of tags, click HERE. […]
