A very simple 'tag' tutorial for Oak House Studio

Hi everyone, back again, with a very easy tag tutorial for OAK HOUSE STUDIO
While doing some 'winter' themed projects for the November challenge, I unearthed some stamps I hadn't used for a while....CHRISTMAS WREATH SET 

I have lots of Oak House Studio white tags, but typically couldn't find them for this project, so had to cut some....
I've used white linen from
1)  I stamped the branches using Green Oak inkpad, and the sentiment using black inkpad.

 2) Using Spring Green inkpad I stamped the cluster of holly leaves from the Christmas Wreath set, randomly over the branches.

 3) I then mixed some Green Oak inkpad with Peridot acrylic ink together to make a darker shade, and over-stamped with a single holly leaf.

4) I painted in a few holly berries with Valentine Red inkpad and an aquabrush.
When they were dry, I dotted 'Glossy Accents' over the berries, to give them a bit of shine.

5) A bit of red metallic cord, and done!

 I liked the effect so much, I made a couple of cards to match....
Well, that's all for now, catch you soon,
Don't forget to get your entry into the Winter Challenge....
There's a fab prize of £40 for the winner, and also a personalised stamp for the back of your cards!


  1. Beautiful tags - and I love the matching cards too!

  2. Gorgeous and the step by step is great. The technique would work great with the kids and showing it on the cards too is fabulous xx
