Christmas Tags 2.10

September 20, 2016

Once I had finished my Deck the Halls patterned paper tags, I started looking through my stamps to see what other types of patterned paper I could create. I own a number of the baking related stamp sets, so I decided to make a set of cookie themed tags.



Extra Details: I started with a half sheet of water color paper. Using the images from Sprinkled with Joy, Milk and Cookies, Oh Snap, and Smart Cookie, I created my own patterned paper. Once all of the images were stamped, I stamped the solid images in colored inks: such as the frosting on the cut out cookies, the chips in the middle of the chocolate chip cookies, sprinkles in the jar and the candy canes.

After the ink was dry, I used colored pencils to color the images in. I stuck with reds, greens and neutrals for the images. Once I finished coloring the images, I didn’t like the white background. I chose a teal color. (This color scheme reminds of Lawn Fawn’s new Perfectly Plaid Christmas papers.)

Then, I die cut the patterned paper into tags. I was able to get 6 tags from the half sheet of water color paper.

I didn’t want to cover up too much of my patterned paper, so I decided to add a Tiny Tag to hold the sentiment. I cut some Tiny Tags from red patterned paper and some from kraft card stock. I used the Tiny Tag Sayings stamp set for the sentiments. I used silver embossing powder on the red tags and gold embossing powder on the kraft tags.

After the embossing powder was cooled, I added some ink blending to the Tiny Tag die cuts. The red tags needed it to help dull the white in the patterned paper and help the sentiments stand out more. After I inked the red tags, the kraft tags looked really boring, so I added some ink to them also.

Lastly, I added some Red Sparkle Lawn Trimmings to the tags. The Tiny Tag die cuts are not glued to the big tags in any way, they are only held together by the twine.
