Hi, it’s Jill here with a pair of Christmas tags created with Creative Imaginations and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.  


Here's a close up.


I began by stamping my images onto Create Imaginations Rejoice patterned papers.  Next, I colored the images using Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and PITT® Artist Pens.


The Stamper’s Big White Pen is fantastic for adding highlights to colored images.


For a finished look, color around the image with Subtle Tones PITT Artist Pens in Cold Grey and Warm Grey.


Stamp your sentiments and add coordinating pattern papers.

Quick, fun, and simple! This set of tags would be easy to mass produce for use with holiday packages and gift bags.


Stamper’s Big Brush Pens (White 101, Permanent Green Olive 167, May Green 170, Dark Chrome Yellow 109), Gelato™ (Red Cherry), PITT® Artist Pens (Cold Grey I 230, Warm Grey I 270, Ultramarine 120, Raw Umber 180, Pale Geranium Lake 121, Permanent Green Olive 167, Magenta 133 )
Creative Imagination:  Rejoice Paper Pad
Penny Black Stamps:  40-087 Holly Tree, 40-078 Amaryllis, 30-136 A Wish for Peace
Other: Twine, Buttons, Pearls, Xyron Adhesive

These would be amazing to try. I've tried Copic markers but never Faber-Castell's pitt pens. :) They look gorgeous


These are so pretty! And I love the white highlighting that you've done! :)


Such a perfect way to finish off a present, tags can often be over looked, but not when they are this special!


I think Jill can make any stamped image look awesome with her talent and the Faber-Castell line of products, which I would have never considered using before seeing all her videos but now I want them all!


Gorgeous tags!


Love both tags, always amazing Jill!, thanks for sharing your talent. Happy thanksgiving. Best regards!

Jill is brilliant! I'm thinking I need to find that white marker for my stash - if I want a really bright white highlight I usually reach for acrylic paint, but sometimes it's too much. Thanks for the chance to win your fine products!!
