It seems that when Stampin’ UP’s holiday catalog goes live we, as demonstrators, tend to forget the great resource that the annual catalog offers all year. This Father Christmas tag features products from the annual catalog and goes together rather quickly so you can make several.
Traditional Color Palette
This nostalgic tag features the traditional colors that we are used to seeing at Christmas time. I have also colored the image with Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Blushing Bride.
To color the Santa image, stamp him using Black Stazon ink on Whisper White card stock. Press the lid of your stamp pad several times while it is closed to get ink on the inside of the lid. Then using your aqua painter, fill in the colors that you like to give Santa a watercolored look.
Be Merry DSP
The traditional colors of the Be Merry DSP by Stampin’ UP add to the Christmas cheer of the tag. To get the layered look of the tag, I used the Lots of Labels framelits. Santa was cut out with the smaller size one, the DSP was the next largest and finally, the largest was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.
I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out with the smallest of the framelits and then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.
To finish the tag, I punched a hole in the top with a standard notebook hole punch. I then looped an 8 inch piece of Double Stitched 1/4″ ribbon through the hole.
Don’t forget that through October 31st, the Be Merry DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale. So you can stock up before Christmas on these great patterns.
