Hello and Welcome!!!
Watch video tutorial here!!!
Let’s create some pretty tags or tag cards using a beautiful Hero Arts Layering “O Christmas Tree” Stencil Set! This set includes 4 stencils that can be used to create the most dimensional tree with ornaments, garland and a pretty star! Please note that there is a matching “O Christmas Tree” Stamp Set which I have linked below if you are interested in that as well.
To get started we can die cut a stitched tag using the Ai Tag Stitched Dies (5132) Set. We will be doing a white tag and a kraft tag. I think you will enjoy seeing the difference between the two tags by using the same ink colors!
Next, we can start the stenciling using the Hero Arts Mini Cube Inks and a small Hero Arts blending brush. We will start with some Pine ink for the first layer. For layer number two we can use the Fresh Lawn ink. To do the garland we will use the Cranberry and Crimson. And the last layer are the little ornaments which will be done in a variety of colors. These colors are all listed below.
Now we can stamp the Hero Arts Bold Prints “Script” Cling Stamp using the Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs. This is one of my go-to stamps for creating a pretty background on your cards and tags.
Next, we can use the blending brush and some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink to go around the edges of the tag.
To tie the background together we will be spattering each tag with the Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Inks in Gold and Pewter and the Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White ink.
On the white tag we will be adding some Hero Arts White Pearl Paste to the garland. This will add some fun dimension and a pretty pearl finish.
On both tags we can add the Hero Arts Lacquer Pen Sparkle Clear on each of the ornaments. This again will add dimension and interest to the ornaments.
We can die cut some pretty stars using the same die set we used to create the tag. These will also be in the gold and silver.
Finally, let’s add a pretty Pinkfresh Studio Metallic Pearl to each of the stars in Matte Gold and Silver and some sparkly twine to each of the tags!
Now you can leave these as a simple tag or create a tag card…and I will show you how to do this in today’s video!
