Christmas Crafting with Adam Part 2 -- Gift Tags
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my crafting friends,
Thank you for checking back to view part 2 of my Christmas series of paper crafting using one Christmas stamp set for the season. Today we are making tags for all those wonderful gifts we buy and give to those special someones. Staying with the theme, the stamp used is Yuletide Greetings from Brutus Monroe. In addition to the stamp set to create these tags I used the stacked dieStitched Star dies and the Stitched Tag dies both from Brutus Monroe to make gift tags with interesting shapes. (Any shape die you have that is the appropriate size will work.)
I started with cutting two sizes of tag dies, one in red Glitter Stock and the other in This Ain't Your Momma's cardstock. Next, stamp your greeting in embossing ink and emboss in Red Embossing Powder from the wonderful Brutus Monroe embossing line. (I did use the to/from stamp from an earlier Brutus Monroe stamp set called Sketch Bow.) Stamp the holly in Raven Detail Ink and color using StyleFile Markers and assemble the tag. Add a bit of ribbon and twine to finish it.
The second tag, is even easier to make then the first so you will be able to create many tags in various colors to dress up all of your packages. This tag starts with a large Stitched Star Die cut in green but use any color you like. To create the glittered line within the star simply cut it using two star dies together out of green Glitter Stock. This creates the thin star outline plus you get a solid glitter star to be used in a different project. Stamp your greeting and the to/from in embossing ink and emboss using the bright Red Embossing Powder, add a few colored embellishments and punch a hole for the twine and another fun tag is completed.
Thank you for following along on my One Stamp for all your Christmas Paper Crafting blog. My wish is to make the season less stressful for all of us busy crafters so we can all enjoy the holiday for what it should be: a time to celebrate with our family and friends.
Merry Christmas and please check back next Sunday for the next Christmas craft using one stamp set.
