Christmas Tags

This week I have been busy trying to make Christmas tags.
I stamped the Christmas Pride stamp 40-075 onto my tag with tuxedo black memento ink and then masked it so that I could distress the background with wild Honey ink and then while the mask was still in place, I stamped over it with the Paisly Outline stamp 40-048. Once all that was finished, I colored the flower with a red copic marker and added a few pearls to finish off the tag.

This next tag was stamped with the Adornment 3996J Penny Black Stamp and Let It Snow stamp 30-086. Peeled paint and fired brick distress stains were used for my ink. After, inking the images, I distressed the background with wild honey distress ink. The sentiment was stamped with tuxedo black memento ink. This tag was an inspiration from Jill Foster. To see her tags please go here.

This third tag was stamped with the Jolly Friends stamp set 30-058. First I stamped the stocking onto the tag and then stamped it again onto white cardstock and then colored in with copic markers. When the coloring was complete, I cut out the image and attached it to the tag using dimensional adhesive. The sentiment comes from in a pear tree 30-035 stamp set.

This last tag was simple to make. I stamped the Christmas Note image 4097J onto a cut tag with tuxedo black memento ink and colored the image with copic markers. Then I used fired brick distress ink to ink around the edges of the tag. The sentiment comes from the in a pear tree penny black stamp set 30-035.
