24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #6 Distressed Coffee Tags

Distressed Coffee Tags

Happy Saturday! Time to wakey wakey and rise and shine – have some coffee and catch up on the 24 tags of Christmas from this week if you’ve missed any! Be sure to comment on the blog posts to qualify to win one! The tags in this video are distressed – but with colored pencil. Don’t believe me? Check it out! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The distressing technique works on cards too!

I might be the first person to distress with colored pencils – if you know someone else doing this, let me know!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018

Each year I make 24 tags – and give them away in a random drawing! This year I’ll be trying things a little differently; in the past I picked 2 people from YT comments and 2 from blog comments….but I found a lot of the YT folks never came to find out they won, and I had no idea how to reach them in many cases. So…this year, it’s all about blog comments where I can at least reach out to winners! So leave comments on each blog post this week for the opportunity to be in the drawing!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #5 Snowy Window Tags

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #5 Snowy Window Tags

 

Snowy Window Tags

I love the window die Ellen Hutson released last month – apparently all of you did too because they were sold out for a while! I used it along with the new snowman in this month’s release – he’s so cute! And he’s got a couple different facial expressions, and carrots facing to the left and right – so  you can totally customize what he’s up to. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This simple little card is colored with pencil – and snow was added with a white pen!

Cheerful little tags will brighten up every package this Christmas, so be sure to put a little effort into them! They’ll be saved as keepsake ornaments too!

I’m taking part in this year’s 25 days of Christmas tags too – and it happened to coincide with today! Go see Tracey’s blog when you’re done leaving a comment here – there are gobs of prizes up for grabs over there!

Painted Pinecone Tags

Just because a stamp comes with certain elements doesn’t mean we need to stick with them – and in this video, I’ll show you how I edited the stamp and added the pine bough to the Hanging Pinecones stamp set from Impression Obsession to make these luscious tags! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

For the card I stamped the whole image – and increased the contrast and detail in the pinecone. I added snow on the tops of some of the little parts, and the background was done the same way as on the tags!

These are an unexpected kind of tag design – little mini pieces of art to tie to a package!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #3 Fuzzy Fox Tag

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #3 Fuzzy Fox Tag

 

Fuzzy Fox Tag

The cute Warm Wishes Fox from Honey Bee is peeking into the scene on the tag – and I think that makes  him more playful than just standing front and center, don’t you?Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card uses the same tree, sweater, and fox technique, but adds some deep snow, too. And embossing over top of the coloring! 🙂

Cute little additions to the giveaway, don’t you agree? Got to love a little fox!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #2 Embossed Layered Tags

 

Embossed Layered Tags

I usually have some coloring – but not on this video! This set of tags relies on an extraordinarily beautiful stamp set called Lighting The Way from Penny Black – and I created the scene with two of the stamps in the set plus a little fussy cutting! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card was made in the same way as the tags – even down to laying the stamps out onto the cardstock to align them in the same way. I also added more gold stars with a gold Uniball gel pen.

Lovely tags…they could even have a layer of your favorite gold paper behind them but I liked them just on black!

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #1 Diorama Dog Tags

24 Tags of Christmas 2018: #1 Diorama Dog Tags

Diorama Dog Tags

Welcome to the first of 6 videos in the 24 tags of Christmas series! I’m using pups – there always seems to be a pup stamp set in the series, doesn’t there/?? This time it’s MFT’s Deck the Howls, and I used the shaker pouches with them; you can also add shaker goodies inside but I just id some layered pieces to create little dioramas! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This little pup was a little too tall with his antlers on his head – so he made it onto a card instead. Complete with trees and a chimney from his rooftop perch! Stay tuned all week for bonus cards here on the blog that didn’t get done in time to put into the videos.

This is the little Vienna pup….lookin’ all happy!

The wiener dog got a little more snow in the air….notice on these that I only put snow in the background behind the pups, where I normally add snow in front too. I left it off on these to be sure the pups were still the focus, but technically the snow should be all over!

I colored this one like lil G. Who adores the snow. He’s never happier than if it’s up to his neck!

Little grey pup got all wrapped up in the decorating!

Hope you liked these…they were fun to make! I’ll have to send them in little protected packages to the winners since they’re a half inch thick. 🙂
