12 Giftable Tags of Christmas 2016 #10

Hello all!  Hope you, your family and friends had a wonderful Christmas!  

I have one more Christmas tag to share with you that I started during Kathyrac's last 30 Day Coloring Challenge finished a few weeks ago.   The tag is die cut from Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Tags.  I first put a layer of distress ink then, over top of that, used a striped stencil to add more color.  Next I colored some white card stock with several green copic markers to create an ombre effect and die cut the joy using the Lawn Fawn Scripty Joy die.  I added some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella then a layer of glossy accents and adhered to the tag with another joy behind it cut from white card stock.

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!

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.

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.

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!

12 Giftable Tags of Christmas # 2

Today's project features the Mama Elephant Reindeer Games set and is part of my series of Christmas Tags for 2016.  First, I prepared the tag by cutting one of the tags from the Large Tag die from Simon Say Stamp using navy cardstock.  Then to give it more night sky dimension, I sponged on some Black Soot Distress Ink with an ink blending tool.  Next, I used the SSS Falling Snow Stencil and some white pigment ink to create the look of snow.  The cute reindeer and pine tree from Mama Elephant Reindeer Games are colored with copics and cut with the matching die.  To finish off the tag, I put a snow border under the reindeer using the MFT Snow Drifts Border Dies.  A little Wink of Stella finished off the snow drift.

This project will be entered in the Simon Says: Make for the Border Challenge.

Today's project is my 6th Christmas Tag for 2015 with a vintage style.  It features this cute stamp from the Lockhart Stamp Company colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  After coloring the bear, I did some ink blending with Tea Dye Distress Ink and also stamped the sentiment, from SSS Hoiday Hellos, with the same ink.  The tag is die cut with my trusty Lawn Fawn Tag You're It Die.
