Before we get started we need to announce the winner of last week's Tutorial Tuesday Giveaway- Congratulations to Ann Cluster who has won a $30 Gift Card.
... The pocket and tags are so cute. Perfect for gift giving and even adding a little gift card. I like to use my stamps to make tags, and decorate gift bags for all holidays. It is a fun unique way to decorate, and people love the homemade feel it adds.
Ann please email me at email@example.com with your email and shipping information so that I can send you your gift card. Please use Tutorial Tuesday Winner as the subject of your email.

Instructions: For my first card I am using Christmas Gifts Vintage Labels Two Cling Stamps - which is now on sale for just $8.00. Start with a piece of black cardstock and ink the stamp up with VersaMark ink. Stamp the image and then add white embossing powder. Heat set with a heat tool.
Next, lightly apply the white pigment ink. I used a cotton ball to apply the ink. You want to make sure you have very little ink on the cotton ball, sponge or any other kind of applicator you use. To create the tag for my card I repeated the same steps and die cut the tag using the coordinating JustRite Vintage Labels Two Die.
To create the background for my card I stamped the Holly Swirls Cling Background Stamp and stamped with Versamark onto Kraft Paper. Here is a look at my finished card.
For the second card I am using Bells of Christmas Cling Stamps. It's the same stamping, inking and embossing technique but on this one I add a little color with Prismacolor colored pencils.
To color the image I used Prismacolor Colored Pencil PC938 White, PC909 Grass Green, PC924 Crimson Red, PC950 Metallic Gold.
This is very quick and easy basic coloring. No shading to worry about. If you get a little of the color from the pencil on the white embossed area just lightly rub it with your fingers and it will come off. I love how the colors really pop!
Next, lightly apply the white pigment ink. I wanted to add a little bit of doodling around the edge of the paper so I used a ruler and the white Prismacolor pencil to make dash lines. To finish off my card I stamped the sentiment with Rich Cocoa ink in the lower corner, added ribbon, some pinecones and berries.
I used the same chalkboard technique to create the main image for my third Christmas Card. For this card I used Snowflake Vintage Labels Seven Clear Stamps.
For the background I used CL-02072 Snow Days Cling Background Stamp and VersaMark ink.
I also inked the edges of the card base white the white pigment ink. To finish the card I added snowflake sequins and some pearls.
