April 5, 2017
The newest Simon Says Stamp products in my craft room are from the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. I love the stamp set and ink colors, but I wasn’t sure what to do with the kraft tags. I really only use tags at Christmas time; and usually I make my own white tags. In the end, I did have fun creating this tags and I already know which holiday gifts they will be going on.
Extra Details: I started by stamping and coloring my animal and hat images. This was the first time I used the penguin from this stamp set. I used colored pencils to color everything. After fussy cutting everything out, I painted the edges with a black marker.
For the tags, I started by ink blending some white pigment ink in the center area of each tag. Then I stamped the falling snow in the background with the same white pigment ink.
While the ink was drying, I created the snowy hills. I die cut a stitched hillside for and trimmed it down to the size of the tag. I adhered the hills to the tags and stamped the sentiments in black ink.
I adhered the hats to the critters with glue dots. I adhered the critters to the cards with double sided tape. To finish the tags, I added some red and white twines form my stash.
