Miss Ink Stamps – Holly Jolly Christmas Tag

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week is going nicely. Are you all ready for Christmas? I usually am but I still have packages arriving through the weekend so I’ll be wrapping right up until the moment this year it seems. Oy!

Back to the reason I’m popping in today…crafting!!! I have a SUPER fun Christmas tag featuring stamps from Miss Ink Stamps and a tag die from Trinity Stamps. I wanted to make a coffee themed tag to play along with the Ellen Hutson 12 days of Christmas tags so I pulled out Java Joe’s…but how to turn it Christmassy?!? I started digging and wouldn’t you know that the accessories in the Ice Day stamp set fit perfectly!

This was just too fun to create! I stamped images from Ice Day and Java Joe’s and colored them with my copics. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and liquid glue to adhere everything together. I added foam squares to the back and moved on to my tag base.

I stamped the coffee shop, brick detail and a topiary on a kraft slimline tag with sepia VersaFine ink. Then I blended distress oxide ink on the tag – brown edges, red on the building and a little touch of green on the plant. I spritzed it with water and flicked watered down brown and red ink on the tag. Next I snagged some snowflakes from Snow One Like You and stamped them in the background with white pigment ink.

Next, I removed the release paper from the foam squares and popped my images in place. I stamped a sentiment from Holly Jolly in the same brown ink and trimmed it into a strip before popping it up with a foam strip.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the package bow, candy cane and coffee cup lid. Then I added unicorn Stickles to Joe’s Santa hat and black glaze pen to his eyes.

For stability and a clean surface to write on, I die cut another tag from white cardstock and adhered them together before threading my ribbon through the hole and tying it up.

I am SO EXCITED about how this fun tag turned out! I hope you liked it too!
