Stampin' Up "Merry Patterns" Christmas Tag


Another Christmas gift tag from me.  This time, I have used the Stampin' Up stamp set called "Merry Patterns" with Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink, to stamp the sentiment and the reindeer.

I wasn't very sure where I was going with this tag, but I knew I needed to fill in the background some how, so I opted to use a metalic gold gel pen to draw wavy lines vertically on the tag, edging the tag in gold too.

I then used the Lavinia Stamps "White Orbs stencil" to draw around some of the circles again with the metalic gold gel pen, then filled the circles in with colour.  Finally, mounting the tag on to  a co-ordinating colour card.


  1. The sentiment and deer look fantastic against the gold background

  2. What a clever background with the gold pen added wavy lines, and the deep red Chianti ink adds wonderful contrast for the deer and sentiment..a beautiful tag Sam. x
