If you happened to visit my previous post then you will recognise the two “cheerful” little faces that adorn the tags I am sharing today.
Once again this is an Oxford Impressions’ DT post where I have used the Season of Giving plate but also used stamps from other Christmas plates.
Oxford Impression Stamp Plates:–
Season of Giving
On both tags I applied Gesso to paper that I didn’t particularly like but with the aid of Gesso and stamping I was happier with the appearance of the paper to start layering up the tags. I used a Crafty Individuals Shabby Tag as a template as it is a lovely size of tag and I wanted larger sized tags as those tags I am sending as an alternative to a Christmas card to friends.
Tag No. 1:- Season of Giving – holly stamp (stamped onto background paper), little boy and girl, label and Epp’s Cocoa advert.
Sleigh Bells – star and December 25th.
Tag no. 2:– Season of Giving – little boy and girl and Noel.
Sleigh Bells – star and postal mark
Winter Snow – snow! sleigh! advert (on tag base and as a stamped element)
The seam binding, lace and gauze I had stained some time ago with fruity teabags, it was useful that the colour matched with the tag base.
If I have not caught up with your artful creations it is because I have not managed to spend as much time as I would like, these past few days, on-line but I do hope to catch-up with you soon.
Have a lovely Friday
P.S. All those stamp plates are available from Oxford Impressions’ on-line store or you should find some of the plates available from That’s Crafty and The Craft Barn in the U.K. and on-line at Art Journey if based within Continental Europe.
