What a great collection of cute tags. I like to color.

I Card Everyone said...

Great tags, everyone!!! Sure to bring a smile to any face on Christmas! Hmmm since I'm very new to Copics, I would have to say that [attempting] coloring my images is what I will be doing this year, Tracey!

What a line up of stunning tags!! I haven't really thought about a preference, but my current compilation of stamps enable me to stamp solids more than colour them in. I need to visit the main page! SO much eye candy, Tracey! WOW!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Super cute tags Ladies. Love the darling images... amazing coloring! As much as I enjoy seeing colored images, I prefer solid images... just because I am not very good at coloring. :(

Kathy W said...

I like to do both! I enjoy using my copics and also color with watercolor...but sometimes I'll stamp color or paper piece. Just depends on my mood and the project. Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance to win.

TK Watson said...

The tags are all just so beautiful! I love that so many used that sweet little snowman!

Betty Sue said...

i like to stamp as I make a lot of tags.

So many fun and cute tags today. I like to paper piece or solid stamp on my tags, because copics run through to the back.

Kit said...

I like to color my tags when time permits.

Marilyn said...

I like to do both ... depends on the design.

I would stamp my tags. If I colored any - it would be for very special people who I knew would appreciate the work I put into it.
I love your tags. The puppy with the mouse on his back is darling.
thanks for sharing so many wonder designs.

Diane Jaquay said...

I really love Paper Smooches, so happy to see all of their adorable tags here today! I love your cute snowman tag, Tracey! I like to color images for my tags, but I also like to use die cuts a lot.

Helen Gullett said...

Oh I love Paper Smooches! Great inspirations from the team today!
I love stamping on my tags instead of coloring, it is only because I am new learner when it comes to coloring images.

Jinny Newlin said...

Paper Smooches always makes me smile! Cute as can be! And I like to color and just stamp... It depends on what mood I'm in at the moment ;).

Denise Bryant said...

So many awesome tags today! I have to say that I am very partial to snowmen and actually sat and die cut 15 snowmen last night! Now to get the finishing touches done... got some great ideas here today!

Kimberly Rendino said...

What adorable tags, everyone! I generally prefer to color in my images… But I also love solid layered stamps.

I prefer stamping the color. I need to invest in copics, but I think I am afraid to take the leap!

diana said...

Great tags!
I like to colour. ;-)

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

These are so cute! I tend to stamp only as it takes more time to color but I do love coloring these guys in!

Renee M said...

These are all wonderful tags--so cute! I like coloring images in :)

Kristie Maynard said...

Love these tags, especially that snowman sweater. I love to color my images when I'm doing a tag for someone special, otherwise I do a small stamp to color or to stamp with colored ink. TFS

Linda Rubarski said...

Great tags and I love to color with colored pencils or watercolors.

Connie G said...

So many adorable images today! I am not a great colorer but I do like to add bits of color to my images - it gives them a pop without doing all the work!

Lindsey said...

Uh oh, how will I ever decide what tag to be inspired by? They're all so awesome!
Considering I seem to be colouring all the time, I guess I must prefer colouring to solid images. ;)

Janet Zeppa said...

So many adorable tags!! I love to use all those different methods.

Lindsey said...

Love these! I'm a solid image kind of gal....wish I was a colorer, though. :)

And these days...
I prefer solid images.

Lisa said...

Oh wow, love what the PS DT has done, these are all fantastic!! Your wee snowman is adorable and I love your color combo! If I have time, coloring is relaxing. But if I'm in a pinch dies cuts and quick stamping is the way to go !!

Tara said...

Beautiful Inspiration today! I like to do both coloring and stamping- I guess it depends on the image!

Mary-Anne V said...

What an adorable tag you made. This PS snowman is so so cute and so are the other tags the team made.

Ren L said...

Aw...the tags are all so adorable! I guess you are all set for the coming Christmas! :)

Irene Grau said...

I love Paper Smooches! I love to color. I can't remember the last time I touched one of my solid stamps. Poor things don't get no love! lol

Colleen said...

I like to color my tags as long as it is a die cut, because I like to use copics, but don't like it showing through on the back! I don't mind a stamped image though! But I do like quick and easy!

stempelwelt said...

Those tags are all so cute! I just love PS critters!

TracyM #6773 said...

CUTENESS GALORE ... everything Paper Smooches is SO CUTE and these tags are SUPER CUTE :)
LOVE your ADORABLE little snowman scene Tracey!!! I need to do a lot more more with my colouring skills, so I tend to use solid images and punch out / die cuts. I confess that I am enjoying my Zig Wink Of Stella Glitter Pens and colouring is SO MUCH MORE FUN that it ever used to be, so I expect our Christmas tags will have LOTS of SPARKLE this year!!!

Marcia HIll said...

I loved every single tag today...they are ALL SO CUTE!! And I love to color with my Copics, but I also love to stamp with color too...it just depends on what stamp I'm using. :0)

Bobby said...

With all the wonderful images available I love to color on my tags. I love your little guy, Tracey, and all the other Smoochers.

cm said...

Cuteness overload with the amazing array of tags here! I think I 'need' some PS snowmen! Colouring or stamping: I'm game for either....but stamping is easier *grin*
Hugs~c

Maureen Reiss said...

More Awesome tags!! I like to color images on my tags!!

Tina Z. said...

Adorable tags, I love shaker tag and tag with wreath.

No serious preference to coloring or stamping solid images; just depends on the design and who it's for! Another set of adorable tags!

Anita in France said...

Such fun and cute Paper Smooches tags, Tracey ... these are adorable! Hugs, Anita :)

OH Babs said...

My goodness so many different styles and techniques, difficult not to get inspired.

OH Babs said...

I forgot to say most of the time I color with copics you can always add a mat.

Megan said...

Love papersmooches! So many cute designs in this group!

TaeEun said...

Superb creations! The little snowman is so cute! Love it!

Kelly Szafron said...

Papersmooches has such fun images, very cute tags today. I like to color images but if I want to make quick tags I go for solid images.

Marybeth said...

I like both, sometimes I just color part of the image. Adorable tags today!

sunnee63 said...

I think I prefer to color them but some solid stamping is fun too!

Rachel Bergfeld said...

I prefer to color mine. I think that's just because I have more line stamps than solids right now though!

Sandy said...

Another day of cuteness.
I have loved coloring since I first held a crayon as a toddler, so I use a lot of images that need coloring, but solid stamps are welcome in my house too. In other words, I do both.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Sooooo adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jean Bullock said...

I like to do both coloring and solid stamping. I tend to do solid stamping when I want to heat emboss.

Birgit said...

These are all adorable tags!!

Marta Borowska said...

Amazing

Sandi said...

I just started coloring so I am looking forward to coloring some images on my tags this holiday season. these tags are adorable!!

Karen King said...

Lovely tags today!
I prefer to stamp solids - coloring is not my strong suit.

Melissa Friedrich said...

Adorable tags, love that cutie pie snowman! I like to color things like a snowman since I only have to do a few details. I usually don't do much detail coloring on my tags.

Sherrie M. said...

Fabulous tags Tracey! I prefer to stamp solids because I'm not a very good coloring...maybe I should just practice more though.

Judy Tuck said...

Paper Smooches make such cute stamps. Love vibrant coloured images!

vinita jain said...

Enjoying the fun by Paper smooches girls! Such cute tags! I love to color my images!

I'm a Little Teapot said...

Awesome tags! The deer saying is so cute!
I usually stamp a sentiment on my tags but when I do stamp an image I like to color with copics or Distress markers.

nic_003_5 said...

love the snowman tfs

Crafty Math Chick said...

I LOVE to color - so I usually color on my tags rather than stamping solid silhouette images (I don't have a lot of solid ones)

Laraine R said...

More great tags! I do both, it depends how much time I have.

Judy1223 said...

Such a cute tag, Tracey!

Nana Griffin said...

I color my images in on my tags.

KandA said...

Love these cute images and great tags. I guess I'd go for the solid printing, especially if I have a batch of tags to make xx

Rema said...

I love to color my images!

francesca said...

oh i love color images!! )

Aileen (mum) said...

I prefer to colour images, its my favourite pass time. I just looked again and saw some inspiration for a stamp set I just got wahoooo

niebieskości said...

:) Milusie :)

Brandi R said...

Darling tags. Paper Smooches has some of the most darling images ♥

I love to color, but on tags, it all depends on who they are intended for and what their use is. On a card, usually colored, on gifts...all depends on the wrappings ;)

Dr Sonia S V said...

I dont mind coloring but yes a solid stamp will be easier and faster
Cheers
Dr Sonia

Christine said...

Too cute!!! I like to use a combination of both.

ionabunny said...

I like to colour my images. Hugz

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

I like coloring, and I don't own a single expensive marker! But I find it soothing.

craftcradleblog said...

Such adorable images! I prefer colouring for that extra personal touch.
