Monochromatic tag tutorial – STAMPlorations

Hello there lovelies, it is again time to share yet another STAMPlorations mixed media tutorial with you guys today. This time I created a monochromatic stenciled and stamped tag with a start-to-finish video.

Here is the tag I created:

For this tag I´ve used one of my new stencils (Leaves 1) on a green toned patterned paper. I´ve added a stamped sentiment (STAMPlorations) and used two tones of green Distress Ink to color the background and to create the leaves pattern onto the background.

I wanted to make the pattern stand out a little bit stronger, so I used a simple trick and added white gel pen outlining to the stenciled images. This way there is more contrast between the same toned paper and the inked leaves. I really like this look alot.

For additional decor I´ve added a DIY dimentional paper flower and some glitter glue as well as the stamped sentiment. This tag is very easy to make! If you use different colours and a different stencil pattern and outline with a black pen, then the result will again be totally different. So many possibilities to use this technique on various projects!! Hope you give it a try!

Here is the video for you to watch:

I hope you enjoyed this little tag idea and get inspired to create something fun with stencil and stamps yourself!!!

And while you are there, join us for a fun challenge or two, too!!!

Happy crafting,

25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop – STAMPlorations

Hello there and welcome to day 22 of 25 days of Christmas Tags blog hop event organized by Tracey over at her „In My Creative Opinion blog„.

Today the STAMPlorations design team girls share their Christmas tags with you and I am happy be joining this hop and to share some Christmas tag inspo with you all. Here is what I did:

I used the CUTplorations Luggage Tag die cut die to create my shaker Xmas tag. The background some stenciling on it, created with a ARTplorations stencil. So all products used, including the stamps are all by STAMPlorations.

Besides the various STAMPlorations products, I´ve used salty ocean Distress Oxide ink and Ranger liquid pearls on the tag. The shaker is filled with various little bits and bobs like holographic snowflakes, trees and stars, some Stampendous glitter and Mica Fragments as well as Prima Art Stones to fill the shaker with various „sheakable“ elements :-).

After finishing the tag it occurred to me, that I could actually not only use this tag on a Christmas present, but also give it away as a present itself. It would make a lovely Christmas tree hanger for someone.

If you are interested in seeing how this tag came together, I´ve also created a short start-to-finish video for you to watch. It will give you a better idea of the various steps, incase you are not already familiar with shaker cards.

You are so sweet tag

Hello lovelies, it´s again time for „Tag Tuesday“! Today I´ve got a special tag to share with you. This is one of the tags that I created for the Elizabeth Craft Designs booth to travel along to various shows. I´ve again used quite a few ModaScrap die cut dies on this one and some lovely Silk Microfine Glitter too (see full material list at the end of this post).

I personally like this tag alot. I love that leaf pattern on the background and even though I am not that much a fan of orange, the colors here really are to my liking.

Wishing you a creative day,
xxx, Sanna
