Today, I have more projects created from the beautiful new Whiff of Joy October Release stamps.
These projects all feature birds of some sort. And I believe that more holiday birdies are coming, if not in October, probably November.
I sort of *heart* them. :)
I am not buying gift tags this year.
Not when I can make my own that are actually cute.
Plus it gives me the opportunity to play with more Christmas stamps & stuff. :)
"A-Moosing Christmas" Tag
I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the positioning right for the moose image on the die cut tag (Papertrey Ink).
I really sort of dig the adorable birdies on the moose' antlers.
I also stamped the "To" and "From" from the Christmas Blessings stamp set.
Time to color. Coloring is my favorite. Copic Markers used for the antlers:
Markers for the moose:
Markers for the birdies:
Markers for the collar & jingle bells (the bells needed an added bit of gold glitter, don't ya think?):
I added some antique linen Distress Ink around the edge of the tag. I didn't even bother with masking. :) Easy peasy.
I used the tag die and scallop die from Papertrey Ink to die cut some felt. The tag for the back of the stamped tag and the scallop trim to add a bit of interest. I sandwiched the scallop between the two tags and then machine stitched the whole thing together.
"Bird with Christmas Bauble" Tag
I used the same steps as before and then used the following colors to color in the ornament:
Copic colors for the bird:
Copic colors used for the ribbon:
Then I finished this tag just like the other one. :)
STAMPS: Whiff of Joy A-Moosing Christmas; Whiff of Joy Bird with Christmas Bauble; Whiff of Joy September Stamp Kit Christmas Blessings
EMBELLISHMENTS: Pure Poppy, Fine Linen & Simply Chartreuse Felt by Papertrey Ink; Simply Chartreuse & Fine Linen Satin Ribbon by Papertrey Ink; Rustic Twin by Papertrey Ink
I really wanted to go for a more elegant style holiday card with this one, to show how versatile these stamps can be. I used a muted color palette, distress ink and neutral embellishments to really make the stamped image "pop".
I created the stamping on the die cut Tim Holtz ornamental die. I masked the bird and stamped over the label with a Hero Arts snowflake Design Block stamp.
The blue snowflake paper in the background? That is from a 6x6 paper pad by Whiff of Joy! Fun!
