Watercolor Christmas Tags

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs christmas tags watercolor

Ok so I can NOT read this little tag without starting to sing Journey in my head… anyone else?! And it’s even better now that it’s related to Christmas! Haha. I created these sweet little tags using non traditional Christmas colors and watercoloring them a bit. I die cut them using the Anytime Tags 2 and the “Believe” using the new Christmas Script Word Dies. And these AWESOME sentiments are from the All the Christmas You’ll Ever Need 2 set.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!

For this card I made a window and propped up my Merry Christmas Border Die. The little car and tree are from the Rustic Christmas Set and they are adhered to the inside of the card.

Moody Santa!!!! Haha this little guy is so much fun. The Moody Santa Stamp Set has a few different facial expressions as well as different quotes. And then there is the matching Moody Santa Die. I made the background using the Rustic Christmas Stamp Set and the banner is made from the Tis The Season Stamp Set that I stamped one of the Moody Santa quotes into.

My next card for today uses a repeating sentiment from the Filled Christmas Tree Stamp Set, one of the stamped trees also from the set, and the Dual Stitched Christmas Tree Die. The front sentiment was also created with the banner from the Tis The Season Stamp Set and the “peace” came from the Rustic Christmas Stamp Set.

December Daily 2014 // Day 7-Day11

Hello friends! I have more from my December Daily 2014 album today. 🙂

December Daily 2014 - GoldenSimplicity.com

On the back of Day 6 (transparency with photo in the middle) I put some white feathers tied with a silver ribbon. For Day 7 I have a pocket with a few translucent shapes, photo, number card, and my journaling.

December Daily 2014 - GoldenSimplicity.com

For Day 8 you have the back side of the pocket with translucent shapes, a little photo with mini journaling, number card, and this beautiful gray polka dot tree. I also hole punched and added the pamphlet from the evening event we went to.

December Daily 2014 - GoldenSimplicity.com

After flipping the pamphlet, I made a little photo collage from the same evening, brought together by a little gold glitter star sticker in the center.

For Day 9 I added a little glitter chevron pocket from a Studio Calico kit with my journaling inside. The opposite page has the photos from this day.

Day 10 was a special day for me. I remember writing these words on my notecard to save and document later on. It was such a special moment to me that I decided to use the actual card I wrote in that moment… I sliced it up so it would fit in the 4×3 pocket but those feelings come back every time I see and read this card. 🙂

For Day 11 I have (on the right side) 2 letters for each of my children’s names, journaling, and a number card. For the photos, I decided to make a little 1, 2, 3 picture “flip book” to show the progression of the photos. They were just so cute!! I adhered it on the outside of the pocket for easy flipping.
