TAGplorations June challenge reminder, vol. 2

Hello there and happy Friday!!! Have you played along with the TAGplorations June Challenge already? This months theme is „All About Dad“ and you are asked to use stencils on your tag projects. I know right, so easy!!!

Here is my second challenge reminder post for that particular challenge – I do hope you join the fun with us!

On this tag I am still continuing with the similar theme, like on my two previous tags (here and here). This time I took a bolder color to combine with green as it better fits the tag sentiment. Orange, in my opinion, is a stand out color :).

For the tag itself, I again used the same techniques like on the previous tags. Funny, how the exact same idea looks quite different, when you change a color or two!!!

Here also the sentiment is a bit different. It´s more bold :). And we know dads love to stand out and feel special, so what better way to say it, than with this stamp sentiment! The bird is just a random idea, but in a way it also fits (bird,  hatching, birth/born) :).

That´s all from me today. Do play along with us – there is still time to join in!!!

Wishing you happy crafting,

TAGplorations challange reminder, vol. 1

Hello and happy Tuesday!! Today I´m sharing another masculine tag project with you guys. This one is my first challenge reminder post for the TAGplorations June Challenge over at STAMPlorations blog. Remember to play along with us!!

For this tag I again used the same techniques like on my first tag (read more about it here). But for this one I chose ot use a little bit different colors. That, basically is the only difference – the techniques I used, are the same.

I thought it would be fun to add a lawm mower image to the tag – as that usually is a dad chore in the household :). And besides, it is a machine, i.e. it represents „the manly life“ *lol*..

I hope you get inspired to play with us at the TAGplorations challenge this month! It´s a fun challenge.

Happy stenciling,

TAGplorations June Challenge reveal – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday! It´s again challenge reveal time and today I am sharing the TAGplorations June Tag Challenge theme:

The month of June is All about Dad and you are asked to use a stencil when creating your tag-project! Here is what I did:

For this tag I used the Nesting Dies by STAMPlorations and die cut the base from a green cardstock. Next I took some white cardstock to die cut the circle piece. After that I stenciled some black ink with the Foiled stencil onto the green tag background.

I wanted to create a masculine look, so I used greens, browns and black. The Moose is a rub-on by 7gypsies as I didn´t have so many masculine stamp images in my stash, so I grabbed rub-ons and added a big moose as a focal point. Then i inked the circle die cut piece with brown ink.

For the sentiment I again used white cardstock that I inked brown and then stamped a sentiment from the Life in Full Color stamp set. The sentiment is longer on original, but I only used the parts that I found suitable for this tag. For finishing touches I added some faux stitching and some black & white ribbon.

Now it´s again your turn to play and submit your projects featuring a tag (and stencils) to the TAGplorations June challenge. Have fun with this one!! I´m reallly looking forward to seeing your masculine projects!!

ps. as  always, here is my discount code for the STAMPlorations online store for you to use. Enjoy!

Happy crafting,

Appreciated – TAGplorations May Challenge reminder

Hello lovelies! It´s time for the TAGplorations May challenge reminder :). I hope you have played along, but if not, there is still time to get your tag in!!! For this reminder post I created another pink tag using a similar technique, like on my reveal post here.

Except this time I replaced the main flower with paper flowers and I also added some chipboard leaves to create more texture and layers. Everything elss was done the same way as the first tag.

Even though I used the same materials these tags still look quite different! Funny, how changing the focal point makes such a big difference.

So lovelies, there is still time to join in with us. Here´s a reminder, what this months theme is about (+ additionally, use Vellum): Hope to see you at STAMPlorations!!! And I am also adding my discount code here, feel free to use it, when shopping at the STAMPlorations store 🙂

Happy crafting,

You are appreciated tag – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and Happy Thursday! Today I´m again sharing another tag project with you. I love the combination of orange and pink on a craft project! While I was creating for the TAGplorations May challenge, I might have created a few more, than only one tag 🙂 …

For this one I used a premade white tag as my starting point. Next I stamped the sentiment „For everything you are appreciated“ several times onto the left side of the tag with embossing ink. Then I poured white embossing powder over the area and heat set it with a heat tool. After that I inked the left side with pink Distress Ink and the right side of the tag with orange Distress Ink.

I then took the Heartfelt Hibiscus clear stamp and sprayed it with a water mist bottle ever so lightly. Then I pressed the wet stamp onto the orange inked area and lifted it off. This resulted the „ghost“ stamp image on the orange ink. For finishing touches I added an embossed sentiment onto a purple piece of cardstock and matted that with a piece of vellum. As a focal point there is a big layered paper flower and also a matching purple ribbon to finish the tag off.

I hope you have joined the TAGplorations challenge – if not HERE is you chance!!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
