In this tutorial, Lieschen Harshbarger uses Simon Hurley products to create fun and festive gift tags to add to your Christmas presents.

 

Instructions

Hi crafty friends! I hope all of you are having a great day. The weather in Texas is finally a bit chilly (for us Texans) so I cannot help but feel the Christmas spirit in the air. And of course, this gives me more reason to keep creating crafty projects with a Christmas theme. Today I’m sharing how I made three different gift tags that can be easily made using Simon Hurley products. I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I enjoyed making these gift tags!

Step 1: Using a trimmer, trim Simon Hurley create. Stark White Cardstock to 4¼ x 2½ pieces to create gift tags. Or you can trim them in different sizes depending on how wide/long you want your gift tag to be.

Step 2: For the first gift tag, use the stamping foam and heat it for about 15 seconds. Then press the stamping foam onto the Christmas Village background stamp to make an impression.

Step 4: On a separate piece of cardstock, use the Joyful Christmas Sentiments Hot Foil Plate & Die with gold foil. After running it through the glimmer foil system and die cutting machine, glue one of the sentiments on the gift tag. Next, add some White Opal Liquid Pearls for embellishment.

Step 5: For the second gift tag, stamp images from the Oh Deer stamp set using Weeping Willow, Later Gator, and Fake Plant. Next, rub the Game Over ink pad around the edges of the gift tag to add more color. Stamp one of the sentiments from the stamp set using Jet Black archival ink.

Step 7: For the third and last gift tag, use the Dazzling Diamond layering stencil to create a background. For the first layer use Overzealous, then Later Gator, and for the last layer Fake Plant ink. Then, use the same blending tool used with the Overzealous ink to ink the entire background.

Step 8: On a separate piece of cardstock, stamp the nutcracker image with Emboss It Clear and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Then ink the entire image with the Love Struck ink. On the same piece, stamp one of the sentiments and run it through the die cut machine to get the die cut of the sentiment and the nutcracker.
