Christmas Tags (by Julie)



Hello! We are sadly coming to the end of the fabulous Christmas stamps so here is the last post from me using them.


First to show you are these vintage tags which have been created with stamps from the Christmas Candlelight set. These tags are very easy and have just been stamped with Watering Can Archival ink and coloured with Polychromos pencils. As you can see, both tags have been edged with the foliage from the hanging candelabra and a dusting of Tea Dye Distress ink has been added to create a more aged look. I  have threaded the tags with Organza ribbon and a few beads have been threaded onto thin wire for a decorative effect.

My second card is quite straight forward and has been created with stamps from the Sparkling Trees  set and the sentiment is from the Last Minute Christmas set.
I inked up the snowflakes with Versamark ink and stamped along the edges of the base card before dusting with copper Pan Pastel. To make the Pan Pastel more permanent I sprayed it with a fixative but this is not always necessary.
I secured a strip of burlap ribbon down the centre of the card with double sided tape and added the stamped sentiment which I had cut out with a shaped die and coloured with Distress inks.
The two sparkly stars were stamped with London Fog Memento ink and coloured with Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold Distress ink. Once they were die cut I added flat back crystals and dabs of Crystal and Platinum Stickles before gluing to a black circle die cut matt.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon.
