Inspired Stamps Blog Hop


Hi, and welcome to the Inspired Stamps Blog Hop.  If you have come from Jenn's blog you are in the right place, and if you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, make sure you head to the Inspired Stamps blog for all the details.  You wouldn't want to miss any of the wonderful inspiration the Design Team has to share.

The Design Team's assignment this week is to create a Christmas focused Tag.  For my tag, I've chosen to use the HLO : Christmas Boy image.  He is really so cute, and I love the ornament he holds in his hands.


Here's the tag:


Stamp the HLO Christmas Boy on white cardstock and colour him with copic markers : Skin (E000, E01, E13, R21) Hair (E31, E22, E35, E37) Ornament (YG11, Y13, YG17, Y21) Outfit (B93, B95, B97, B99, E40, E42, E43). Add some sparkle onto the ornament with Atyou Spica Clear marker.

Cut the patterned paper to size and punch both the ends with a border punch, then adhere it to the tag.  Emboss the middle section of the tag where the pattern paper is, with an embossing folder, I used a snowflake folder.  Spritz some Glimmer Mists (Bahama Blue & Mel's Diner) on the doily and adhere it to the tag as shown.  Adhere the cut out image of the HLO Christmas Boy on the doily.  Add a sparkly ric rac trim at the bottom section of the tag and some baker's twine above it, and tie a bow, and add a glittery dot on the bow.  Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment on some ledger paper and cut it down to size and adhere it just above the doily (I added some white faux stitches but I think it would look better with real sewn stitches).  To add some texture to the tag, I added some Flower soft (Polar white) at the top and bottom ends of the tag.  Finally, adhere a chipboard glittery snowflake with a gem stone in the centre on the top right corner of the tag and a ribbon through the top of the tag (I dyed my own seam binding using Tattered Rose Distress Ink).

Here's a closer look - hope you can see the Flower soft, and the embossed section of the patterned paper.


Thanks so much for joining us, and I hope you have been inspired by what you've seen.  I'm the last stop of the blog hop today, but, don't forget to head to the Inspired Stamps blog and leave a comment for your chance to win some prizes.

Take care, and have a great day!
