Holiday tags and Paper ornaments with StencilGirl’s Snow Storm Stencil

Hi creative friends, crafting this time of year is so much fun I almost have too many ideas that I want to create and definitely not enough time to get everything created. One thing I love to do for the holidays is make special gift tags that can also be used as ornaments on the tree. I have a hard time getting cards done if I create them all hand made so i focus on the gift tags which I can create a bunch at a time. So today I have decided to use this beautiful Stencil called Snow Storm found at 

I started out by creating a background on a sheet of mixed media paper with my brayer and some matte acrylic paints from Blick Arts. This is a tutorial I saw on PaperArtsy. 

It’s quite simple take 2 or more colors that go together and use your brayer to layer them. Don’t cover the whole sheet with one color just keep adding with the colors you picked to get a nice layered look with lots of depth. 

The matte colors I think work best bc they really give it a nice vintage look. But use what you have, Experiment, have fun that’s what art is all about !! 😊

Once you are happy with your back ground lay your Stencil down and go in with a darker or lighter color that will pop when you Stencil. Here I choose Violet Deep and just sponge on with the sponge of your choice. 

Here is how this sheet came out, I love it ❤️

On this sheet I choose a Magenta with some dabbing of thenoff white over the top of it. 

For the next sheet I took a plain white mixed media paper put my Stencil down and took a baby wipe and just used all the paint that had collected on my stencil to create this next sheet. It’s amazing how beautiful this turned out and I didn’t use any fresh paint

Next cut up your sheets in the sizes of tags that you want or use punches / die cuts whatever you love.  I did some in shapes of tags and some with a round scalloped punch in 2 different – layering sizes. 

Now comes the fun and the sky’s the limit to embellishing these babies. Here I added more layers in a complimentary color with the same stencil. 

I added some snowflakes using the texture paste then painted them once they were dry with paints and inka gold in a turquoise. 

I used some liquid pearls to accent the snow flakes. 

These are Holiday tags so break out that glitter. I used my stickles but I put some on my palette and brush it on 

I added some stamping to most of them with some hold embossing powder and again accented with the liquid pearls. 

Let them dry and add some pretty ribbons to the tops and you are good to go. The round ones I love to use for ornaments the layered ones I used pop dots to raise them. But if you don’t have those you can use a folded piece of felt or a piece of bubble wrap. Anything to raise it works.
