Holiday Tags with Hero Arts Holiday Stamps

Hero Arts Holiday Gift Tag

Hi Friends! Kristina here with a project for our “Anything but a Card” challenge this December.
My inspiration today comes from Kay Miller and the 12 tags of Christmas on the Ellen Hutson blog. I’ve never been one to do many gift tags, but her’s looks so enticing I thought I’d giving it a go.

I cut out a base circle with a stitched circle die, and then an additional circle one size smaller from two colors of cardstock. I used versamark ink to create a tone-on-tone simple background. You could also use pattern paper. I cut each circle in half and peiced them together on the background, before layering on a die cut sentiment, a glittery snow flake, a Hero Arts Snowy Tree and the cute little owl from Hero Arts Holiday Animals. He was colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I was ready to give up on those markers until I saw Jennifer McGuires favorite things video for paper, which turned me on to Bristol Smooth paper and the rest is history. I like the markers now 🙂

Hero Arts Color Layering: Snowy Tree

Hero Arts Color Layering Snowy Tree

Hi Friends! Kristina here today playing with some Hero Arts Color Layering
I used the new Snowy Tree color layering set coupled with so Snowflakes by Lia!

I started with an a2 card base and stamped several snowflakes with Versa Mark ink and heat
then heat embossed in white, before ink blending on some distress ink to create my background.
I stamped & cut 2 tree’s and the dear from the Snowy Tree Color Layering Stamp Set and mounted onto the trimmed down background piece, before mounting onto my card base. I kept my sentiment simple, stamping directly onto the background with Hero Arts Intense Black ink.

Now for a little house keeping!
