Ellen Hutson / Christine Herrin Holiday Tags


Hey there!

Welcome to the Blog Hop celebrating the holiday release at Ellen Hutson! This is the 13th stop on your hop. You probably arrived here from Kelly Griglione and your next stop will be Therese Calvird. For full details, please check out the Ellen Hutson blog.

I was so excited when I heard that Christine Herrin, from Everyday Explorers Co. designed some stamps for Ellen Hutson. I’ve been a big fan of Christine’s for a long time and love her designs.

Today I’d like to share some tags I made with the new stamps Christine designed exclusively for Ellen Hutson: Made This For You and Warmest Wishes. There are so many great icons and buildable options in these stamp sets!

For this tag, I started by creating a background with the ornament stamp. I masked off part of the ornaments in the center to make it two-toned. I then went in and stamped a couple of the sentiments right on top, and added some stamped images I had cut out directly onto the tag. I love how it gives the tag some extra dimension and texture.

The long patterned stamps can be used to border your sentiments or even as stripes as I did for this tag. I stamped the pattern three times to create the stripes for the background. I then stamped some of the icons onto cardstock, fussy-cut them out, and then adhered all the pieces to the tag. I embossed some of the stripes and leaves in gold to give it some sparkle!

I had so much fun putting together different combinations to make some festive tags and I can’t wait to see what you make with these sets!
