12 Giftable Tags of Christmas 2016 #8

Hello all!  I've been so engrossed in Kathyrac's 30 Day Coloring Challenge that I have not taken time to post my latest tag!  The tag is heavily inspired by Jennifer McGuire in her post HERE on sentiment backgrounds.  The tag features two Simon Says Stamp sets - Gifts of Love and Holiday Hellos.   The tags are cut from Smooth Bristol paper using the Simon Says Stamp Large Tag Die.  Then, I stamped the gift stamp from SSS Gifts of Love on the tags and also stamped and prepared a mask using a post-it pad.  The gifts are colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and then masked off.   Next, the sentiment was stamped repeatedly to create the background.    

These were fun and easy to make - thanks Jennifer!

12 Giftable Tags of Christmas 2016 #7

Hello all!  Today's project is an entry in Where Creativity Meets C9 Watercolor Challenge.   My project uses the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Stamp Set.  Love the images and sentiments in this set.  

 

I started with a tag cut using the Lawn Fawn Circle Tag set from watercolor cardstock.  Next, the tree images were stamped using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and smooshed with a damp paint brush.  I used the same ink to add some splatters.  The sentiment and some tree decorations were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Hello all!  Back with another Christmas Tag!  This one features WPlus9 Friends For All Seasons - Fall.  The cute bear with the scarf looked pretty holiday-ish to me so why not?  The little guy is colored with copics, cut out with the matching die and popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment, from the Simon Says Stamp Happy set, is stamped and white cardstock and is a little base for the bear.  The tag is cut with the largest ofWPlus9 Timeless Tag dies.

Double Partial Die Cutting

Hello all!  I don't do this technique very often but I love it!   The double partial die cutting is easy once you do it a few times.   This project features the Essentials By Ellen All Inside and the coordinating die.  The bear is colored with copics and the sunshine sentiment is also colored a "sunshine yellow."  The little guy is so cute and the die cuts out his hands so he can hold all kinds of things!  

The sun rays in the die cut window were created using the My Favorite Things Sun Ray stencil some ink blending with distress inks.

Hello all!  Back today with another Christmas Tag for my 12 Giftable Tags of Christmas series.  This one is super simple.  The tag base is cut from Bristol Smooth paper with the Lawn Fawn Circle Tag die.  Next, I stamped the cute Savvy Stamp Penguin with versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  Detail is added to the cheeks and scarf with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Added a little twine and that was it!

Gift Card Envelope - 12 Giftable Tags Of Christmas 2016 #4

Hello all!  For the newest Simon Says Challenge: Gift It!, I decided to do a some Gift Card Envelopes using the Simon Says Stamp Gift Card Envelope Die.  The envelopes are simply cut from some Stampin' Up double sided Christmas papers.  To the front I adhered a white circle cut from the MFT Stitched Circle Dies with a sentiment and gift images from Lawn Fawn Winter Gifts.  The mat for the circle is cut from a coordinating patterned paper.  The "to and from" on the back is from the newly released Lawn Fawn set Tiny Tag Sayings.

Stamp Layering

Hello all !  Today's project is another clean and simple design for Simon Says Clean and Simple Challenge.  Again, I am using the Simon Says Stamp / WPlus9 Many Thanks Stamp Set.   This is a layering stamp set so I got to do some experimenting with the different stamps and color combinations.  The sentiment is also from the Many Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped with yellow pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

12 Giftable Tags of Christmas #3

Hi all!  Today's project is my 3rd giftable tag for 2016.  Super simple - I cut the tag using Simon Says Stamp Large Tag Dies and stamped the cat (I guess?) and the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Gifts of Love set with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.  The cat is simply colored with copics and I added an offset tag to the back with the "To and From" stamped on the back.

This project will be entered in the SSS Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says Stamptember Stamp It!

Fall Thanks

I really enjoy participating in Kathyrac's coloring challenges.  I created the front card panel in today's project during the Fall 2015 30 Day Coloring Challenge and here is the final card - finally!  The design is inspired by the Starbucks cup that Kathy colored during that challenge.  This was very fun to do since I love to color with Copics so much!  In fact I have at least one more stamped panel waiting to be colored!  

The images are from an older GinaK set called Sunkissed Autumn and the thanks die cut is from the MFT Many Thanks die cut set.
