To make the Tags I cut strips of heavy white card stock into 2" wide strips. Then cut them in to 3 3/4 " lengths.
I used a label top punch from S.U to punch the tag tops.
I took a baby wipe, really nice wet one
( If yours are not that wet, spritz them with a little water one or two squirts should be enough.)
I used Stampin' Up s dye based inks, but any water/dye based ink will do.
I started at the top of the tag and gently stroked down the tag stopping about 3/4" from the bottom.
Try not to use more than 3 or 4 strokes as you will run the risk of furring up your card stock. If you're not getting good coverage spritz your wet wipe with a little more water. But don't soak the tag.
Do the same to all your tags. By the time you have done the last the first will be dry enough to work on the bottom.
Turn the tag sideways and stroke across the bottom of the tag with your second colour.
No more than 4 stroke . It doesn't matter if the effect is streaky as this only adds to the depth and gives the appearance of snow drifts.
Tip, if your card is too porous it will soak up the ink too quickly and give a patchy result. Use a heavy card that the ink takes longer to dry on.
Ink up your tree stamp with dark brown ink and stamp the images where you want them.
I used the trees from the Happy Scenes stamp set from last years S.U winter catalogue. I have to say I cut this stamp down as I didn't like the extended lines below the trees .
I can tell you, It has taken me considerably longer to type up this tutorial that it took me to make 24 tags.
I hope you will have a go at this technique.
