Coffee themed tag – Coffee Lovers blog hop

Hi there everyone, I am up today with one last – although I could go on and on with these coffee themed projects, as I AM a coffee addict 😉 – project for the  Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop.

This time I ended up creating a coffee themed tag. Here it is:
And this is how I created it:

First I took a plain white tag and misted it with a Tattered Angels Cardboard toned Chalkboard spray ink. I sprayed the tag really wet so that the color would start „running“ on the tag surface and then quickly dried the surface with a heat gun. That way I got this really cool background look. Looks like spilled coffee :)..! And next I stamped the A Cup Of Roses clear stamp image onto a piece of beige patterned paper. The paper had platters on it, which makes it look like it has been stained by coffee/tea. Perfect for this theme then! I colored the image with markers again – using mainly Copic markers and adding white dots with a white gel pen. Finally I decorated the rose petals and the coffee cup with Rose Gold and Stardust Sticles to add some sparckle to the image. Next I took the Bloomin´ Spring Coffee Basket stamp set and used the sentiment stamps with black ink for the tag background. I repeatedly stamped the images next to each other mainly concentrating on getting the coffee name parts visible on the tag. Then all I did was to fussy cut the Cup of Roses image and adhere it onto the tag. I also stamped a sentiment onto a white paper and inked it with darkish yellow spray ink tone to match the tag colors and adhered the stamped sentiment underneath the rose image. Finally I added some ribbons to the tag and the project was done. I really like the colors on this tag. I am not that big a fan of brown but when I see it on a project, it gets me every time – maybe it´s because it reminds me of coffee 😉 ….

And now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to read more about this hop! Have fun!!! And do join in too!!!

Let´s stay creative,

Stenciled bookmark – STAMPlorations

Hello there everyone! It´s my turn today to share another mixed media step-by-step tutorial with you. I am very much looking forward to spring already and I have noticed that it shows in my recent work – mainly can be noticed in my color choices. And this project is no exception – lots and lots of happy spring colours peeking here and there. Hope you like it!

Here is what I created:

Take a piece of white plain cardstock (or a big manila tag). Cut into a tag form if you are using a piece of cardstock. Then spray with pink spray ink and let dry or use a heat tool to dry the surface.

Place the Flutterby ARTplorations stencil onto the misted, dry surface and take a palette knife and some Viva Decor Glitter Paste and apply the paste thru the stencil onto the tag with the palette knife. Since the paste is very „grainy“, make sure you wash the stencil after you have used it.

Remove the stencil carefully and let the paste air dry before moving over to the next step.

 Take book themed paper bits and scraps, fussy cut them into right size and start adhering them onto the tag as you like. Add punched/die cut elements like butterflies to go with the background theme and decorate with ribbon, washi tape, brads, music notes and whatever you find suitable for the theme.

Take the Trendy Birds 2 stamps and a piece of old book paper and partially ink the sentiment stamp (only the word wings) and press the inked word into the paper. Fussy cut the word.

Next take the Trendy Feathers 2 stamp set and again only partially ink the stamp sentiment with the word „mind“ on it and press onto a piece of old book paper. Then fussy cut along the edges.

After that take small alpha stickers and build the quote „Books give wings to the mind“ with the partially stamped words and the alpha stickers. I always adhere the alpha stickers with paper glue to make sure they really stick to the surface and don´t come off later. Sometimes the adhesive bedind the alphas is not that strong on it´s own. Finally, add some white ink splatters for additional interest on top of all layers. If you don´t prefer splatters, just skip this step. That´s it. Here are some detail photos of the finished tag.

Hope you get inspired to play with glitter paste and stencils!!! Have fun!!!

Stenciled paste and paint mixed media tags – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s my turn today to share a little mixed media tutorial with you. I decided to create a set of two tags using toned modeling paste with stencils. Here is how my finished tags look like:

And this is how I created the tags: 

1. Take a white tag and place it into a misting box and using yellow spray ink add a layer of yellow mist. Let air dry or use a heat tool to dry the surface.

2. Mix modeling paste and magenta and tangerine acrylic paint with a palette knife together.

3. Place the „Ethnic Organic Two“ stencil on top of the tag and start applying the toned paste thru the stencil onto the tag. Start with orange and continue with the pink tone.

4. Carefully lift the stencil from the tag and take a second white tag and place the wet paint surfaced tag onto the tag, roll over the stencil with a brayer and remove the stencil. While the tag is drying, rinse the stencil with water.

5. Next add a layer of yellow spray ink onto the second tag and let dry.

6. Take the „Buttercups & Butterflies“ clear stamp set and two sheets of patterned paper (I chose matching colors).

7. Stamp with black ink flowers from the stamp set onto the paper and fussy cut the pieces.

8. Add a golden doilie onto each tag, cut off the residue. Adhere the flowers overlappingly with a paper glue.

9. Stamp suitable sentiments on old book paper with black ink and fussy cut those. Glue on place and outline with a black pen.

10. Embellish with half pearls, glitter glue and liquid pearls and paper flowers. Add ribbons in matching colors.

Here is also a start-to-finish video for you to watch, hope you like it!! Have fun creating with the cool ARTplorations stencils and STAMPlorations stamps!!!

I hope you get inspired to play with your stencils and stamps and create a fun project or two!!

Wonderful season – STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday

Hello lovelies, it is again time for some more stencil inspiration over at the STAMPlorations blog!!!

Also don´t forget to play along with the December mixed media challenge!!! The tag I created this time is again a Christmas tag. I´ve actually used every single one I´ve created during the past weeks already on Christmas pressies. I think I might still need a few more :).

Here is how I created this tag:  Sanna LIppert - christmas tag with stencils

I first placed the Bloom Factory stencil over a white tag, then took some Distress Inks (purple, green, blues) and started inking the tag thru the stencil. I started with the lightest colour on the top, then moved over to the darker ones towards the end of the tag. Finally I inked the edges with the purple ink. Since the ink underneath has different tones, the end result of the purple ink also varies from one part to another. This creates a really fun look!

Then I let the tag dry abit and mixed some white acrylic paint with water and dabbing a paint brush against another I created a white paint splatter layer on top. I let that layer dry properly before decorating the tag. I used the Fond Expressions 2 stamp and added a hand written word to the tag. The birdies have a glitter coat and the bauble is colored with the Distress Inks too and then decorated with some glitter glue.

Warm Winter Wishes tag set – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone! It´s my turn to share a mixed media tutorial over at the STAMPlorations blog today again and today I am up with a set of three happy Christmas tags created with the Broken Glass ARTplorations stencil. This is what the set looks like:

Here is how I created the tags:

1. Fussy cut 3 tag bases from a piece of white cardstock.

2. Take two pieces of red patterned paper and place the stencil over the paper. Now trace the broken glass pattern with a pencil onto the paper. Remove the stencil and fussy cut the pieces with scissors for the first tag.

3. Next place the stencil over the tag and start glueing the fussy cut pieces onto the tag using the stencil as a glueing guide. Leave to dry, before cutting the residue pieces off along the edges of the tag.

4. For the second tag repeat step two, but instead of cutting the pieces off the paper with scissors, use a precision knife to cut along the pencil lines. Remove the pieces and put them aside. Not take the outline piece and glue it onto the tag. Leave to dry and cut off residue along the edges when dry.

5. For the last tag use the leftover pieces from tag two. Glue like on the first tag (see step three).

6. Place the stencil onto the tag, apply gitter paste thu it and let dry properly. Repeat on all three tags.

7. Next adhere the die cut sentiment onto a piece of red patterned paper and fussy cut along the die cut word. Adhere some turquoise lace onto the tags and adhere the die cut sentiment on top.

8. Decorate with stickers, cork, chipboard pieces and add glitter glue, white texture spray and a red ribbon on top for additional decoration.

Here is a start-to-finish video on how I created the tags – hope you like it!

And some detail shots of the finished tags:

Happy Winter – STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday

Hello everyone!!! Today is again time to remind you of the NOVEMBER Mixed Media Challenge at the STAMPlorations blog. The whole design team has been creating some inspirational projects for you, so do check them all up over HERE :).

Here is what I made for November – as you can see, I am slowly but surely starting to get into Christmas project creation mood ;-). Here is my first Xmas tag:

Sanna Lippert - Leaf print stencil Xmas tag Sanna Lippert - Leaf print stencil Xmas tag

I´ve first misted the background with light blue Chalkboard Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels). Next I applied blue pearlescent creative medium (Imagine Crafts) thru the Leaf Prints 2 stencil (by STAMPlorations) over the misted layer. THEN I added turquoise blue Glimmer Mist over the whole surface. After that I used the CUTplorations „Warm Winter Wishes“ die cut die and cut the sentiment from white paper (I used those for another project that I´ll share with you later) and only used the negative piece. I matted this piece with red patterned paper and then started layering old book paper, eco dyed ribbon, cork stars, golden yarn and stickers over each other. I used the Christmas Reindeer stencil (also by STAMPlorations) – well, actually the mask piece of the stencil – as a drawing guide and then fussy cut the reindeer and misted it with grey Glimmer Mist and adhere it on it´s place. I had a lot of fun creating this piece 🙂

This tag will make a nice addition to a Xmas present, I think. So now is your turn! You don´t have to create anything Christmas themed, though!! Please read the rules before you link up – no worries, they are easy to follow!! Hope you find the time to join in with us!!!

Have fun creating!!

Brayered, stenciled mixed media tags – STAMPlorations

http://www.papierstau.at

Hello everyone, I am up over at the STAMPlorations blog today with a set of mixed media tags. Every time I create a project, I keep a piece of heavyweight white paper next to me. This piece serves as a residue spray ink/paint/paste surface. I dab, wipe and press all the residue media onto this piece and put it aside, when it is totally covered. Then I take a second one and so on. This way I have a pile of half finished background papers in my stash that I then use for a starting point on future projects. This is how I started with this tag set too.

Here are the steps I did (please also see the video for further details):

1. Take a half finished misted heavyweight background paper piece and cut it into smaller pieces.
2. Take Distress Paints and different brayers and created random patterns onto the misted pieces.
3. Apply some Distress Paint onto the credit card and wipe the paint onto the background pieces. Dry with a heat gun.
4. Fussy cut the papers into tags.
5. Apply yellow, light pink and orange spray ink onto the tag backgrounds. Let dry.
6. Take various ARTplorations stencils and apply blue Distress Ink thru them onto the background.
7. Take a STAMPlorations stencil and stamp the images with black ink onto the tags.
8. Color some of the images with Posca paint pens.
9. Add further details for interest with yellow, black and white texture spray.
10. Apply Liquitex Ink! Iridescent Bronze ink onto the tags for more interest.
11. Add random doodling and writing onto the tags with a black and a white pen.
12. Outline with a black pen.
13. Add ribbon, old book paper pieces and flowers for additional detail and decoration.

Here is the video step-by-step:

This is what the finished tags look like:

I hope you enjoy this tag idea and get those stencils and stamps out and play alittle yourself!!! I really enjoy creating these colorful tags!

Mixed media tags

Hello there! I am slowly, but surely, developing a serious addiction towards tag creating :-)… I think they are fabulous projects to make! You can add them later to be a part of another project or put them on a present AND they are smallish thus relatively fast to create. So if inspiration hits and you are just not up to creating a scrapbook layout or working on a canvas, tags are a nice size to go to. These two I created just for fun to participate on a FB online crop.

I´ve used plain white tags as background and first applied droplets and layers of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist onto the tag. I let those dry properly before moving to the next step. Next I added Distress Paint circles onto the first tag by pressing the dabber directly into the tag. After that I took a Dina Wakley stamp and stamped the „text“ onto the background, then added some details with Posca paint pens. Finally I added bits of cardstock residues from my previous projects and stapled them down. Then I only needed to add a little stamping and the ribbon.

These were so much fun to make! I really like the colors on these tags too :). What have you been creating lately? I know I should be thinking about Xmas cards, but I am still not quite in the spirit for that :)…
