Bird Christmas Tags

I'm back with more tags for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. I  love Donna's tag from Day 22 for Birch Press Design and was inspired to make 2 tags.

I didn't  have a bird die similar to the Birch Press die, so I stamped a bird  (Inspired by Stamping) and coloured with Copics and Distress Inks.  I made a wash with Nuvo Glimmer Paste and DI Weathered wood and brushed it over the tag. The edges of the tag are brushed with the same ink and then I splattered the ink over the tag.  I stamped the pine boughs and berries with Zig Markers. Next I adhered the bird and then passed the tag through the Big Shot to trim the tail feathers.  
The sentiment is from Kaisercraft, the foliage stamps from Penny Black and the beautiful tag die from Papertrey Ink.

This is the tag that inspired me. 

Here is another bird tag i made with a warm colour scheme...

This time I used patterned paper from Kaisercraft for the tag and WPlus9  'A New Day' and watercoloured the image with Zig Markers.  The sentiment is from Penny Black ' Banner Sentiment' and the tag die is from MFT.


  1. I love these sweet birds, Jenny! I especially love how the pine branches peek around the first tag and how the colored bird contrasts with that wonderful background!

  2. Fabulous bird tags your first one with the IBS bird and also the cool technique you used for the background

  3. These are both beautiful tags! Love the bird theme and the colour schemes of both. Thanks for joining us at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

  4. Both of your bird tags are so beautiful Jenny! The first one is soft with the light gray, green and red. The second bold with lots of colour. Two amazing tags that will look fantastic on your gifts. xx
