Hi there! Today I'm sharing an idea on creating kraft holiday gift tags stamped with pigment inks showcasing the new Crafty Labels Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I paired the labels images from the Crafty Labels Stamp Set with greetings from the Retro Holiday Labels Stamp Set for these kraft holiday gift tags. I stamped all the images with pigment inks because the pigment ink won't fade on the "colored" cardstock. I love how the ink colors retain their vibrancy and how the ink looks on kraft cardstock especially.
I stamped the label image from the Crafty Labels Stamp Set on kraft cardstock using Apple Pigment Ink. I used the MISTI stamp positioner tool so I could stamp the image one on top of another a couple times to make sure I got full coverage. I stamped greetings from the Retro Holiday Labels Stamp Set on the tag "fronts" with white pigment ink. I stamped an additional message and "to/from" from the Crafty Labels Stamp Set on the "backs" of the tags with white pigment ink.
I die cut all the labels with the coordinating Crafty Labels Die and then adhered the tags back to back.
I stamped the greenery and bells from the Crafty Labels Stamp Set on kraft cardstock using Mojito and Apple pigment inks. I die cut the images with the coordinating Crafty Labels Dies and adhered t hem to the tags as shown.
I punched holes in the top of the tags using a Crop-a-dile and threaded through red and white baker's twine to finish each tag!
