Wow.. it’s the last day of September, 2021 is flying!

My tutorial this week is how to make these iridescent Christmas tags using one of the gorgeous Visible Image Christmas tree stamps.

Cut an equal amount of approx. 11cm diameter circles from white and black card.

Wipe over the black circles with an anti static pad.

Stamp the Visible Image O Christmas Tree in the centre of the black circles using versamark and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.

Stamp the stars and circles with versafine and gold heat emboss as before.

Spritz your Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Chic and Frosted watercolour palette with a little water and paint your tags.

When the paint has dried, use pva glue to attach a white circle to the back of each of your painted circles.

Pick one of the Christmas sentiments from the Visible Image Sentimental Christmas stamp set and stamp with versafine ink.

I’ve used Fantasia, a dark purple ink.

You can clear heat emboss this or leave it to dry for a few minutes.

Pick up a little gold gilding wax on your finger and pat off the excess onto the lid. Apply the wax around the edge of your stamped circles.

Leave for 5 minutes or so to dry then buff the gold with a paper towel to make it super shiny.

Use a screw punch or cropodile to punch a hole in the top of each tag.

Cut some pieces of black and gold ribbon and tie them onto each tag with a double knot.

Admire your finished tags, these would cost a fair bit in the shops so with the money you have saved, jump over to the Visible Image sale and grab some bargains!

Hedgehog Hugs Stamps | Autumn Tags

Hi there! Jane is here on the blog today with 2 wonderful Autumn tags created with our HEDGEHOG HUGS stamps and ERIKA’S MAPLE stamp set…

Good Afternoon, it’s time to share my latest design team inspiration. The new Autumn release is now on sale worldwide, and has gone down a storm. There are 9 gorgeous new sets to choose for and if you have been sleeping under a log (with the cute hedgehog) and missed them do check them out!

Today I am sharing a pair of tags I made using the stamps from one of my favourites (shhhh) Hedgehog Hugs. I also teamed it up with some existing stamp sets.

I used 2 tags from my stash.

The tag on the right was made using various distress stain sprays.

The left one is made from a book page and altered using barn door distress ink and all the great stamps from the Grunge Tones setThis set is perfect for a quick background.

I also stamped some leaves onto inky mop up card using Erika’s Maple stamp set.

which I cut out

I stamped in black versafine ink and clear embossed both the hedgehogs from Hedgehog Hugs, coloured them with watercolour markers and cut one of each out.

I also stamped out the sentiments and distressed the edges.

Then it was time to assemble my tags.

Here they are finished..
