TAGplorations October challenge reveal

Hello lovelies, summer break is officially over at the STAMPlorations blog and it´s time to start the regular challenges again. This months theme is FALL in all it´s glory!!!

So create a project featuring a TAG with a fall theme. As an optional twist you are asked to use gold, red and orange.

Here is what I created for the reveal and some steps how I created this tag:

Here is the step-by-step:

Step 1: Take various fall tones of Distress Oxides  and start stamping with the leaves stamp (Trendy Leaves) by first stamping the full/even/solid image in a lighter tone.

Step 2: After that take the decorated leaf images and stamp on top of the previously stamped images with a slightly darker tone. This way you create a two-toned, patterned, randomly colored leaf image.

Step 3: Die cut the leaf stamped paper with the tag die and outline with a black pen. Next stamp green toned leaves with the Layered Leaves stamp set in two steps. First stamp the green solid image, then stamp the „outline“ image with black ink. Now fussy cut. Step 4: Spray/apply golden Glimmer Mist on white paper and stamp the sentiment with black ink using the Woodland Friends stamp set. Fussy cut into a banner form. Next stamp an animal from the same set with black ink, fussy cut and color with spray inks/stamp inks. I ended up using a squirrel in the end as it better fitted the tag than the deer.  Now adhere everything on place and decorate with ribbon and sewing thread.

Now is your turn – remember to play by the rules:

  • you can link up as many projects as you want (1 project per blog post!!)
  • Projects can be anything but they must feature a TAG
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are also allowed
  • To qualify for the prize, you must display the challenge graphic on your blog post and link back to the challenge post (note: blogs only!)
  • Prizes: one $15 Giftcard for the winner and three $5 Giftcards to three randomly picked participants

After the rain… – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies! A new month means a new challenge – which means it is time to share some mixed media & stencil projects with you again :).
This month I kept to a smallish sized project, an ATC. And I´ve only used a single stencil on my project, but it is all it needs in my opinion.
This is my project:
 Sanna Lippert
I´ve first used a piece of misted and painted residue paper as my starting point. Then I wiped some blue Distress Ink (faded jeans) into the background thru the Droplets Mini stencil. Next I outlined the raindrops with a blue Posca paint pen. Finally I fussy cut this digital coloring file into right size, colored it with Distress Crayons and added a hand written sentiment on top. Sanna LippertI am a summer person, thus the sommery theme, even though it is very much fall aready ;-). Now it´s your turn to join in with us on this months challenge!
Remember to read the rules on how to play along (read here). Basically you are asked to create a mixed media project – anything except a card! And you need  to use a stencil (any brand goes). But for further instructions, please check the STAMPlorations blog! Also go there for more Inspiration and see what my DT colleagues have created!!

oh, and there are also PRIZES to be won :)!!!  Hope to see you there!

Sanna
