A stenciled, heat embossed tag – STAMPlorations

Hi there, everyone! Today it´s again my turn to share a mixed media tutorial post over at the STAMPlorations blog. I have a fun and easy to do tag background tutorial prepared for you – hope you like it!

Sanna LippertHere is how to create this tag:

  1. Download the ColorBlooms digital file from this post and while you are there, you might want to grab a coloring book from the store :).
  2. Color the blossoms with Distress Crayons and water.
  3. Take the Big Bloom Factory (L) stencil and apply VersaMark ink on top of it.
  4. Place a white tag onto the inked area and using a brayer transfer the ink onto the tag surface.
  5. Take white embossing powder and apply over the tag. Heat set with a heat gun.
  6. Press Distress Ink (squeezed lemonade, wild honey, shabby shutters) onto a kraft sheet and spray water mist over the areas.
  7. Apply the ink onto the tag with a paint brush. Let air dry or dry with a heat gun.
  8. Fussy cut the colored blossoms from the print file and adhere onto the tag overlappingly.
  9. Take a piece of old book and stamp a sentiment from the STAMPlorations Fond Expressions clear stamp set with black ink onto the book sheet.
  10. Fussy cut along the edges and glue onto the tag.
  11. Decorate the blossoms with white gel pen. Apply black texture spray onto the tag for additional interest.
  12. Add faux stitching with a black pen along the edges. Add matching ribbon and bind together with a piece of yarn.
  13. Finally add a vellum butterfly for decoration.

Here is the start-to-finish video:

And this is how the finished tag looks like:

Mum – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there, everyone! Today I´d like to share with you a Mother´s Day card I created using mainly the Elizabeth Craft Designs products. This is how the card looks like:

Sanna LippertHere is a little step-by-step on how I created the card:

Sanna LippertFirst I took a piece of yellow cardstock and placed an Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil repeatedly over the paper and inked thru it with an orange Distress Ink tone.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertNext I cut a Garden Notes Grapewine Wreath Round image from a green patterned paper several times. After that I took a strip of Brusho colored watercolor paper and used an Anemone die cutting die to cut several flowers. Sanna LippertI then adhered the stenciled cardstock piece onto a white card base. After that I adhered the wreath and leave pieces onto the yellow background.

Sanna LippertAfter I had first built the flowers I glued them on their places and added some details with a pearl pen.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertFinally I used the Alphabet 2 – Lower Case die cut set and the Banners die cut set to cut the images and hung the banner with twine from one end of the wreath to the other. I attached small silver puffy dots on top at both ends and outlined the card edges with a matching toned marker. For the banner pieces I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper set.
