Warning! Contents of this blog may be awesome! I loved the sentiment included in the Taylored Expressions Spoiler Alert stamp set, and knew I needed to create a tag with it.
I started by colouring and cutting out a bunch of Gerda Steiner’s mischievous reindeer on Copic X-Press it cardstock. He will sit towards the top of my tag.
Copics used: E59, E57, E55, E34, E31, R27
I used the Gina K Designs Delicate snowflake background stamp, white heat embossed and splashed with Ken Oliver Ultramarine Blue ColorBurst powder. I love the vivid, bright blue result this gives.
I’ve made other tags using this same background stamp and colour combo before, and I’ll share them below.
It is much easier to die cut all the tags first, then stamp, heat emboss and paint them, rather than trying to get as many gift tags cut from one 6″ square piece of cardstock. Mass production means you can actually stamp two tags at a time, which doesn’t take long at all.
I stamped and gold heat embossed the sentiment a bunch of times on vellum. Because I was making quite a few tags at one time, it was easier to simply stamp and heat emboss them all at once.
I simply trimmed the sentiment strips with my trimmer and the two ends are folded around to the back of the tag and secured with strong double sided adhesive tape. Any excess is carefully trimmed off. I didn’t add any extra backing to my tag, you may wish to in order to hide the vellum more completely.
The cute reindeer is trimmed down to fit, plus I cut around his arm so it hangs down over the vellum sentiment a little.
I added red glitter stickles to his nose for added shine and sparkle.
