Handmade Wrapping | Boot Prints Stencil

Hello! We are feeling Christmassy here at Visible Image as we share some wonderful new inspiration created with our Christmas stamps and stencils. Jane is here on the blog today with some fabulous handmade gift wrapping and a co-ordinating tag featuring our SNOWMAN JACK stamp, Santa’s BOOT PRINTS stencil, and a lovely sentiment…

Good Afternoon, it’s time for my latest Visible Image design team inspiration! Can you guess who left these boot prints?

Yes, none other than the man in the red suit! It is time to share some inspiration for some of the fab Christmas stamps and stencils!

I decided to make a Christmas gift wrap and tag set.  I had a hard time choosing the stencil and stamps to use for my make but eventually I decided on the:

with the cutey Snowman Jack stamp set

and one of the gorgeous sentiments from my favourite of all Christmas sentiment sets; Sentimental Christmas

This is what I got up to.

I love making personalised gift wrap and I have shared many makes over the years. I always use brown paper and distress inks as personlly I find that a good mix. The ink dries pretty instantly and doesn’t smudge. And yes you can stamp using Visible Image clear stamps with distress ink…I get asked that a lot. The stamps are made of the highest of quality photopolymer and are deeply etched. Also the stencils are fabulous quality and a great depth too.

So first of all I used Black soot distress ink, an ink blender and the Boot prints stencil to stencil the boots all over the sheet of paper.

I just hold the stencil in place, it’s easy to line up again if it moves. Taping it down might tear the paper.

Santa really has been stomping around hasn’t he!

Next I used festive berries distress ink and the 4 tiny snowflakes from the Snowman Jack stamp set, and put them all onto together on a block.

I then used them to randomly stamp snowflakes all over the sheet of paper.

Once my sheet of paper was finished it was time to make my tag.

I stamped, coloured and cut out  Snowman Jack.

You will notice that I paper pieced his scarf and hat for some extra detail and dimension.

I stamped a red tag with the snowflakes and swoosh stamp from Snowman Jack .

I stamped and embossed this lovely sentiment from Sentimental Christmas.

I also stamped the star from this set using gold ink.

Here is my finished snowman tag.

And here is Snowman Jack with his matching gift wrap, all ready for the man in the red suit to deliver on Christmas Eve!

I hope I might have inspired you to make some of your own gift wrap and tags? They don’t have to be just for Christmas and make a gift so personal.

Do check me out on out social media too. You will find me on instagram where I share many more of my makes.

Bye for now,
