I stamped my image on Neenah solar white card stock and colored him in with my Copic marker.  I fussy-cut the image and adhered it on my tag.

To finish my design I stamped the sentiment from the Naughtyisms stamp set and added the pine boughs with the red jewel.  Here’s a little close-up:

Easy Last-Minute Christmas Gift Tags

Are you looking for some easy, last minute Christmas gift tags ideas?  I am sharing 4 tags that you can easily mass-produce, showcasing the Waffle Flower Crafts Special Delivery stamp set and die set, with the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Odds and Ends, and the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag Dies by Kat Scrappiness, available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my Memento Tuxedo black ink using my Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.   I colored the images in with my Copic markers.

Using my new favorite Sharpie White Paint Pen, I added some white polka dots on the images then die-cut them using the coordinating die.   I also die-cut the tags using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag dies on white card stock.  I used an embossing die from my stash to add some details on my tag.

I adhered the images onto my white tags, and added the Gingerbread Men from Doodlebug and sequins on the red bows, using the Sparkling Clear Slid Confetti mix.  Here are the tags:

I also made some stocking-stuffers today showcasing the Chocolate Lover’s sentiment stamp set available only at Kat Scrappiness.  These giant candy bars look so cute!

For my projects today, I used both stamp sets and also the new stand-alone dies.  I JUST LOVE THEM! They are so versatile!  Here’s what they look like:

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I also die-cut the tags on 110 white card stock, as well as patterned paper.  I wanted to use the edge dies to create some added dimension and details to my tags.  Here are the tags:

NNDHotCocoa

For my card, I stamped the image on Neenah solar white and decided to just color one snowman.  I wanted him to stand out from the rest of the image.  I also used the Frames and Flags die to die-cut a Bristol Smooth white card stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.  I colored my card front  with my favorite Broken China Distress Oxide Ink using my blending tool.  I spritzed it with water and dabbed it with my paper towel.  I adhered the image to the colored background.  I also heat embossed my sentiment to finish my design.  Here’s what the card looks like:

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Newton’s Nook

25DaysTagsBadge

Today the Newton’s Nook Design Team is joining www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

For my Christmas tags below, I’m showcasing the Holiday Hounds stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Santa Paws Newton and the Sentiments of the Season stamp set.

I stamped my images on Bristol Smooth card stock using memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I also die-cut the tags in white card stock, as well as patterned paper.  For the other two tags, I used my blending tools and broken china distress oxide inks.

To finish the design, I used one of my all-time favorite dies by Newton’s Nook called Pines and Holly Die Set and added the greenery to the tag.  Here’s what they look like:

NNDDachshundTags

Aren’t they cute?  They almost look like Christmas ornaments.

I hope you all got inspired today.  Please visit www.inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca for more holiday inspiration and information about the 25 Days of Christmas tags.  Have an amazing day!

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I wanted to showcase the mice in a little snowy-window scene.  To finish my design, I added the White Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Here’s my first project:

For people joining the challenge, Tara is also giving away a free digi-stamp called “Beary Christmas”. Thank you Tara for this amazing digi!  If you would like to join the challenge and get the free digi-stamp, please join the CDD Gallery Facebook Group here:
