One Stamp..Six Tags

Darcy over on Art and Sole set us another challenge this week to win a set of her lovely christmas stamps!! the challenge was 6 tags from 1 stamp..you can see her's here

So seeing as I would love to own some of those stamps I had to join in....They are all around 4x21/2 inches..

                                                             Tag one

I covered the tag with some christmas paper and stamped some holly leaves in black.
The tree [my chosen stamp] was stamped onto white card and coloured in with puff paint. I then cut it out and added it to the tag using foam pads. The sentiment was stamped onto matching paper and edged with black and also added to tag with foam pad.

         Tag two

I inked the tag with distress inks in the blues. I stamped the tree in walnut distress and softened the lines with a water brush. I then added ranger antiquities over the whole tag and used my heat gun to set it. To finish just a touch of glitter to the tree. Snow was cut from a sizzlits die.

        Tag three

I cut this tag from craft card and stamped the tree directly onto it. I used a white prisma to colour the snow. I stamped some snowflakes using a white versafine ink pad,

The sentiment was also stamped onto craft card and added to the tag using a foam pad..

          Tag four

The tag was coloured using distress inks and splattered with water to give the effect of snow..I stamped the tree in black archival and coloured the snow with a white poscha pen. I then added some glitter to the tops of the tree and stamped the sentiment in black.


         Tag Five

This one was coloured using distress ink and the tree stamped in walnut stain and the edges softened with a water brush I then added some pumice stone glitter, stamped some snowflakes in the background and added the sentiment..

   Tag Six

the last one...I did the background for this tag with distress paint and just stamped the tree and the sentiment. I sanded the edges of the tag to remove some of the colour. Then I added a touch of glitter randomly to the tree and around the edges of the tag..

I think the tags look much better in real life but these are the best pictures I could get.

Thanks for stopping by..................


  1. gorgeous tags, love that tree! I had trouble with my photos today too..

  2. These are gorgeous Lin, really love that tree, such a gorgeous shape. Number 3 is my fave. x

  3. Fab set of tags. Isn't it weird how the same stamp can look so different just stamped in a different colour, my fave is the bottom one.

    Good luck in the draw - Sam xxx

  4. They are all gorgeous.
