Christmas Gift Tags

Do you enjoy making your own gift tags? I do! 

 These little tags feature images from the Crafter's Inspiration Christmas Edition by Crafter's Companion

I used my eBosser to cut several shapes onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. I love the ability to run many die cuts through in one pass - saves so much time and effort! 

Next, I stamped images from the Inspiration package. They are so cute- just the right size for tags!

With my Spectrum Noir MarkersI used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip coloring. As you lay the color on the cardstock, a natural blending occurs.

santa: Blender, CR5, DR3, DR7, GB1, IG1, IG7, IG9, IG10, TN1, TN2, TN3, TN4, TN5
kitten: Blender, IG1, BG1, CR5, DR3, DR7, PP4
gingerbread cookie: CR5, DR3, DR7, TN2, TN3, TN4

After coloring I added detail with an artist pen, Stickles, gold metallic and white pens.
