Christmas Tags Tutorial

Today, we have a special post just in time for wrapping your Christmas packages!  Designer Trena made some adorable gift tags.  Here's what she shared on her blog...

Do you enjoy making your own gift tags? I do! 

These little tags feature images from the Crafter's Inspiration Christmas Edition by Crafter's Companion

I used my eBosser to cut several shapes onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. I love the ability to run many die cuts through in one pass - saves so much time and effort! 

Next, I stamped images from the Inspiration package. They are so cute- just the right size for tags!

With my Spectrum Noir MarkersI used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip coloring. As you lay the color on the cardstock, a natural blending occurs.

kitten: Blender, IG1, BG1, CR5, DR3, DR7, PP4
gingerbread cookie: CR5, DR3, DR7, TN2, TN3, TN4

After coloring I added detail with an artist pen, Stickles, gold metallic and white pens.
