Tag Details

Tag #1

This first tag I used an alcohol squish technique. The stamp set Modern Christmas Watercolors is perfect for this. I inked up the holly leaves with 2 different green inks from, Pine and Succulent.

Then I spritzed it with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Then I stamped the image with my Mist. The result is this watercolor effect on the stamped image.

I then stamped the sentiment and added with some jewels from Pretty Pink Posh where the holly berries would be. And then finished it off with a red ribbon I had left over from a previous project.

Tag #2

For the 2nd tag, I used the stripe stamp from the Wrapped Christmas Sentiments stamp set. I inked 2 stripes using’s Cardinal Red premium ink and stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia stamp set in the middle. For shading I used a craft sponge and the Candied Apple Distressed Oxide Ink. Then to finish it off I used jewels from PinkFresh Studios.

Tag #3

For the last tag I used the pine branches from the Modern Christmas Watercolors. I stamped the branches with 2 different colors, Pine and Succulent. Then stamped the sentiment Merry & Bright from the Bold Holiday Sentiment.

Finished Project

These were quick and easy gift tags that would be great for any gift you are exchanging this season.
