Hi HHH Friends! Today I have some quick holiday tags that features stamps from the current October 2019 Box and some ink blending.
I am not one who usually creates my own tags for the holidays, but I thought there were so many stamps that would be perfect for tags. To start my holiday tags, I picked out a few distress ink colors for a couple of different color schemes. The tag die is just one I have had for years and years, but any tag die that you may have in your stash would be just fine for this project. For my first tag, I used Tumbled Glass and Wilted Violet Distress Inks, and a blending brush and lightly applied my color. Once I was happy with the amount of ink on my tag, I took out the row of trees stamp that comes in the October box, and I stamped that with VersaFine Black Ink to give a silhouette look to the tag. Next, I stamped out my sentiment that reads ‘My Gift To You’ in the same Black ink, I die cut the tag reinforcer out of some glitter paper, adhered it with liquid glue, and added some hemp twine.
For my second holiday tag, I first stamped my snowman onto my tag, created a mask, fussy cut out the mask, and applied it over the snowman to mask it from ink blending to create my background. For my background colors, I used Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold, and Tumbled Glass. I love the bright colors and still feels like a wintry background. Once my background was created, I removed the mask ( which is always the fun part) and then colored my snowman with some Copic Markers. My coloring is pretty simple, I just add a few shadows with darker shades, and blend out with the lighter shade. I felt for this tag, it needed some snow, some I drew some in with my white gel pen. I added my glitter topper, and added some more hemp twine that has the same colors of ink I used for the background in an ombre’ pattern.
These tags came together pretty quickly! That is the name of the game during the holidays, am I right?! I hope I provided some inspiration for your tags this holiday season! Thank you all for stopping by today!! I will be back soon with more inspiration!
