Inspired Stamps - Christmas in July (Tags)


Hello Friends!  Welcome to the Inspired Stamps Christmas Tag Blog Hop.  If you have come from the Inspired Stamps Blog, then you are on the right track.  If at any point, the link is broken, here is the order of the hop :

Kary

I'm never quite organised when it comes to Christmas, and I'm always having to scramble to make some last minute cards or tags ;)  So, this is a great opportunity for me to make an early start this year.  Some of you know, I've recently moved to Perth, and most of my craft supplies are not here yet, and so my tags are pretty CAS.


Here's the first tag:  

I used one of my favourite Inspired Stamps set Vintage Christmas on this tag.  As you can see I've used the image below, it's all in one stamp except the star, which is a separate stamp.  I stamped the image directly on my kraft tag and coloured the hills with Copic marker, just to give it a little shading.  The star was stamped with Memento Cantaloupe.

Vintage Christmas

The top section of the tag is a patterned paper from Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas.  To finish off the tag, I added some Christmas coloured Baker's Twine and a string of silver pearls.

The second tag has the cute image from His Little Ones : Winter Boy set and the sentiment from  Vintage Christmas .
The little boy was coloured with Copic Markers (Hat, Mittens & Shoes - R22, R24, R27, R29 ; Scarf - R24, R29, YG03, YG17 ; Tunic - G40, G43, G46 ; Hair - Y11, T21, T38 ; Skin - R20, E000, E01, E13). The boy image was cut out and adhered on the tag cut from my Silhouette Cameo.
