Newton’s Nook Designs Deer Friends | Christmas Tag | Copic Coloring

Newton's Nook Designs Deer Friends


Hey crafty friends! As we near Christmas Celebrations and begin exchanging gifts, creating handmade gifts tags is the perfect finishing touch to add.

For this tag, I used Newton’s Nook Designs’ Deer Friends stamp set, Fox Hollow stamp set, and tag dies by Sizzix.

To begin my tag, I first stamped several images of the deer from the Deer Friends stamp set, and the evergreen trees from the Fox Hollow stamp set. Then, I used my Copic Markers to color in all of the images.

Copic Marker Combination

Deer: E39, E37, E35, E33, R22, R21, R20
Light: E33, E31, E30
Tree: G28, YG67, YG63, YG03

After coloring, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out leaving a small border. I knew I wanted to have more of the ink blended background visible so I opted to use a large tag die-cut. My tags are die-cut from Bristol smooth cardstock using Sizzix Framelits Tag Dies.

The sky is ink blended with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink at the top and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide ink toward the bottom of the tag. I added splatters to the background with diluted acrylic paint that mimics snow.

Once the tag was dry, I stamped the sentiment with black ink. I created a snowy hill from white cardstock and attached the images with glue dots.

To finish this tag, I fed a coordinating ribbon through the hole at top of the tag. This tag was inspired by the current Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge. As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
