It's time to wrap it up!  I love wrapping gifts - and watercolored tags add an artsy, personal touch to any gift.  Jean Okimoto here - let's get started...

Imagine Crafts Products

  • Caribbean Sea Kaleidacolor Inkpad
  • VersaMark Inkpad
  • Memento Luxe Love Letter Pigment Inkpad
  • Gold Embossing Powder
  • Clear Embossing Powder

Press the Caribbean Sea inkpad onto an acrylic stamp block.  Use a slightly damp wide, flat paintbrush to apply overlapping bands of ink to a strip of watercolor paper - rinse the brush between colors.  Air-dry the inks for about 5 minutes, then heat-set them.  

Stamp Merry Christmas with VersaMark, emboss it with gold powder.  Stamp Jolly Combo with Love Letter, emboss it with clear powder.   

Cut Cheers Script from white cardstock.  Cut A Batch of Gingerbread and Snowflake Heart from gold mirror cardstock.  Cut Snowflake Heart again from red mirror cardstock.  Cut Party Drinks from silver mirror cardstock.

Cut the notecards in half - they're the perfect size for gift tags.  Assemble the tags and add gold cord ties.

That's my kind of tags--love the swooshes of watercolor and tiny die cuts!

Wow, these are adorable, LOVE the gold gingerbread men!

Thanks Nancy and Donna….watercolor a bunch of them now, then add the greetings and diecuts later. They'd also make unique placecards and table number signs for a wedding or special event.
