Christmas Tag Using Eileen Hull Mitten

Hello Topflight Stamps Fans, Karen Bearse here to start Christmas in July this week on the blog. I have a full tutorial on how to make an oh so cute tag using just a few layers of mix media magic.

This awesome diecut is a steal rule die by Eileen Hull called Mitten Box. You can actually make a 3D treat box out of it. I chose to just use the main diecut and make a tag out of matboard. This can be used as a mini album, an ornament, part of a card... the list is endless.

Let's talk products. I started with paint using Fresco Finish. You can change up the colors to make this more Christmas colors, or fall or even spring!

Next up was adding the awesome Background stamp by darkroom door. Some emboss was also used to add that great dimension that I just love!

Have you tried using this Wow embossing liquid? It is great for the heavier, chunky embossing powders. I like to put a bit on my craft sheet & apply to a stamp with a dabber or foam piece. 

Stamps used are a quote from the fabulous Christmas Sentiment stamp by darkroom door. These Sentiment stamps can be used in so many ways. As a background stamp all together, as a quote in the label stamp as I have done, as single quote cut out... so versatile.

Also used was the Lots of Labels.

Of course the focal image is too fun. Just one of these goofy, mad looking owls. Love this set! 

I used a different Santa hat but here is a similar one.  Love that curly cue hat too. If you put Santa hat in the search engine you get a few different choices.

The hat was colored using alcohol inks like the ones by Prism- love how bold the color is. 

Don't forget you still have 1 day to take advantage of the Freedom Sale! Thanks so much for joining me today & for more fun & tutorials please check out my blog! Have a wonderful Mix Media & Monday now go get inky!
