Woo hoo…Christmas Tags…Maybe this year I’ll have enough!
Well, I have to say…this was kind of fun! I made all these tags with some very simple tools. I was just fooling around one night and the next thing I knew, I’d created these!
Here are the simple tools I used:
Here’s What is In The Photo Above…
- a hole punch
- a black pen
- a white gel pen
- 2 different size scalloped square punches by Marvy
- various colored card stock
- Stampin’ Up Whisper White ink pad
- Colorbox catseye chalks (looks like little ink pads)
- Tim Holtz distressing tool (that weird shaped thing with the red circle in the middle)
- Rubber stamps (red are from Hobby Lobby, clear one is from PaperTrey Ink.com, the one on the wood block is from Archiver’s)
- Copic Markers
Here are the colors of Copic Markers I used:
Does it kind of gross you out that one is called “Flesh”? Maybe it’s just me.
In case you can’t read them off the photo, here’s the list…
Copics: R02 Flesh (yuck), E33 Sand, R29 Lipstick Red, Y08 Acid Yellow (geeze, acid yellow?), E37 Sepia, YG09 Lettuce Green, V09 Violet
My boys both want this one on one of their gifts. Guess I’d better make another one. You know what’s really cool about this one? The brown paper ISN’T brown paper! It’s green! I just used my olive pastel chalk and it turned it brown on the edges. Weird! It’s the same green paper as the layer above it. It’s completely green on the back. The white dots are from my white gel pen. The reindeer is colored in with Copic markers and chalked on the edges of the paper.
Now this one is DH’s favorite.
The snow effect is from a PaperTrey Ink.com stamp that goes to a cupcake set I have. It’s supposed to be sprinkles for the cupcake. I colored Santa’s white parts in with the white gel pen and used a black pen to add other detail.
Now with this one I was going for a Santa’s belt on the Santa suit look. I just stuck the tree on there because I had gone to all the trouble of cutting it out and had nothing to do with it.
Here’s an up close look at the ink and liquid chalk I used in this set of simple Christmas tags.
Ok…go make some simple tags!! I bet you have what you need just laying around. Let your imagination lead you!!
