25 Days of Christmas Tags & Lil' Inker Designs

It's time for.....
and today it's....

Lil' Inker Designs' turn!!!!! 

Hi there! I'm Laura and I'm the owner here at Lil' Inker Designs and I'm stopping by to share 4 tags I made for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Hop. Thank you so much to Tracey McNeely for including us in this exciting and creative event. I couldn't possibly love making gift tags more and I'm even more excited to have a prize for one lucky person as well!! Read on for more info!

My first tag was so easy to make using our All the Christmas You'll Ever Need Stamps and Oh My Ornaments Dies and just a little help from our Ornamental Christmas Stamps. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in white on watercolor paper and then made a night sky with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blended out my ink with an aqua brush. Once dried I die cut with my ornament die and added my embellishments and then made a to/from part that I stamped and added on.  Isn't this the cutest ornament shape? I love these and all of the sentiments from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Needs Stamps fit inside! YES!

Here I die cut the the largest die from our Anytime Tags Die Set from watercolor paper (and by the way this is the best ever watercolor paper for these markers) and I did a little painting with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blended out my ink with an aqua brush to create a soft background. Featured here are our Jingle Bell Dies (two largest) and the third, smallest is from our Christmas Bits Dies. The sentiment is from our amazing Rustic Christmas Stamps.  Love love love our Jingle Bell Dies!!

Here I diecut a red tag using the largest die in the Anytime Tags die set. Then, I cut a focal square using the Stitched Mats: Squares Dies which I then die cut again with our Snowflakes Dies using the negative left behind. I made this into a shaker and then stamped a sentiment from our Holly Jolly Stamps onto the focal panel. A little bit of twine finished this off nicely.

This tag was a little bit more work than the others which were all pretty simple to make. Here I used our Rustic Christmas Stamps, specifically, the pine branch stamp from that set, which I repeated into a wreath shape. I saw a customer, @yumi_b2108, do this on Instagram and I was so inspired. I did change the method a little and did some shadow stamping instead of watercoloring. Then, I used one of the berry stamps from our Oh Deer Christmas Stamps to add perfect, red berries. Also featured here are our Warm Welcome Dies, Welcome Word Die and Jolly & Joyful Stamps. Oh, and I can't forget our Gift Bow Topper Die which I added so this could be hung as an ornament.

I hope you love the tags I made to share with you today and I hope you'll stop by and check out 
Lil' Inker Designs and shop with us.
