Spring Fling, vol. 2 – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies, today I´d like to share my second STAMPlorations Spring Fling project with you. For today´s post I´ve prepared a happy flower tag with lots of various STAMPlorations products. Here we go:

Here is a peek o the finished project, but let me share the steps with you first:

Step 1: Apply orenge toned Distess Ink onto the Daisy Dance stencil and add a slight layer of water mist on top. Now press the stencil with the wet ink surface onto a piece of white paper. That creates the above look.

Step 2: Stamp flowers using the Blooming Buds clear stamp set with watermark ink and white embossing powder onto a piece of white paper. Stamp first, then pour a layer of embossing powder over the stamped image, dab the residue off and heat set the powder with a heat tool.

Step 3: Color the stamped flower images with two to three tones of Distress Ink using a water tank brush. Start with a lighter tone and move towards darker tones, creating shadows and depth.

Step 4: Die cut the stenciled paper piece using the Stitched Nesting Tag die set. Next take a Leaves 2 stencil and place it onto the die cut tag. Dab green Distress Paint thru the stencils onto the tag surface and let dry.

Step 5: Apply ink splatters in orange and green Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist tones onto the surface and let dry. Now fussy cut the colored flower images and adhered them onto the tag surface with paper glue. Add a stamped sentiment from the same stamp set. Stamp with black ink for contrast. Decorate the flowers with silver sequins and add a piece of ribbon to the tag. Finish off with a few black Glimmer Glaze droplets.

This is how my finished Spring Tag looks like:

  I hope you enjoyed todays tag tutorial and got inspired to create a fun tag yourself!! 

Here are a few detail shots of my tag :). 

And now, be sure to follow the STAMPlorations blog for even more fun Spring Fling projects every day until April 12th!!! Wishing you lots of luck with the giveaways!!!

Stencil blog hop, part 2 – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and welcome to the STAMPlorations stencil blog hop – part two – featuring more projects, created with my new ARTplorations stencils!!! I am very excited to have another set of stencils out with the STAMPlorations store and cannot wait to hear what you think.

I´ll share a few tags, ATC´s and cards created with some of the stencils from the new stencil line:

On this ATC set I´ve used the „Fairytale Forest“ stencil on the background in combination with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I really like this stencil as you can use the outer parts to create a leaf frame or choose to use only the inner parts for random flowery patterns or just combine both.

For this tag I´ve used the „Rag Rug“ stencil with an iridescent paste on a pink/purple misted background. As a fun detail I added some Japanese magazine page pieces (I have no clue what it says tho…). I found the patterns work so well together that I took a risk :).

This particular tag features the „Convallaria“ stencil. I love, love, love this patterns so much. It´s one of my very favorites from this release. I´ve just added some blue ink thru the stencil onto the tag, then stamped the stentiment and decorated with wood elements.

For this card I used a green-blue misted background paper and added a layer of white texture paste thru the „Rosegarden“ stencil. Finishing the card off with a stamped sentiment.

And finally, for this card background I used the „Dream Flower“ stencil pattern with red and pink Distress Inks on a light purple/pink misted background paper.

I am really excited to see what you guys will be creating with these stencils. You can find all my stencils at the STAMPlorations store, HERE. Note that there will be a special offer from October 8 to 21 at the STAMPlorations store!!! All stencils are 15% off during that time – no coupon needed.

Stencil blog hop – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and welcome to the STAMPlorations stencil blog hop – part one – featuring my new ARTplorations stencils!!! I am very excited to have another set of stencils out with the STAMPlorations store.

I´ll share a few tags and a card created with some of the stencils from the new stencil line:

On this tag I´ve used the „Lupinus“ stencil in a very random way – as you can see, it´s quite a versatile stencil, which is not designed to be only used as a flower image, but can be used to create random background patterns.

For this tag I´ve used the „Lattice“ stencil with green ink and created a pattern that repeats itself throughout the whole background.

This particular tag features the „Abstract Oats“ stencil on a blue background. I really like the fact that the stencil is quite abstract in design, so it can be used for various purposes.

I am so in love with the „Whale´s Tale“ stencil.  Just cannot get enough of this pattern :). I can see it being used also for girly mermaid cards, even.

And finally, for this card background I used the „Dots ´n Beans“ pattern with white texture paste on a light purple/pink misted background paper. It´s also perfect for coffee themed projects, or could be used as ladybugs even.

I am really excited to see what you guys will be creating with these stencils. You find all my stencils at the STAMPlorations store, HERE.

Seasonal tags with Glimmer Mists

Hello there everyone, have you been following the Creativation 2018 in Phoenix via social media? Well if you have, you might have noticed the Canvas Corp Brands booth there. It looks fabulous. So much to look at, new product and just eye candy everywhere.

I have been following my team colleagues feeds and have really enjoyed seeing everyone there, thus, I haven´t had THAT much time to be creative (first things first! LOL).  For such moments, there is always a plan B to make something small – tags, ATCs,  and small mixed media projects. I chose tags this time – here is what I created:

I started with the snowflake tag. First I die cut the snowflake from white cardstock, then took a black tag and placed the stencil on top. After that I applied the Aquamarine Glimmer Mist through the stencil. This is an imporatant step for the base of tag 2: now carefully remove the wet, misted stencil and press the residue spray ink onto a piece of white cardstock. This creates the background for the fall tag. Then finish the snowflake tag by adding faux stitching with a white gel pen around the edges and adhere the with Jack Frost misted snowflake as a centerpiece. Decorate with Nuvo Drops and a 7gypsies brass stud. Add a word sticker and ribbon.

Next create the fall tag – take a Mixed Media Origins Fall paper and color the fall leaf images with yellow, brown and orange Glimmer Mist tones (see material list for details). Next fussy cut the leaves and die cut a tag from the already misted stencil pattern area. Add black ink splatters with black Glimmer Glaze and let dry properly. Adhere the leaves overlappingly, attach a word sticker or two. Add faux stitcing with a black gel pen and finish off with a ribbon.

For the rose tag – first die cut a tag from white cardstock, then apply a layer of Silk Glimmer Mist to the tag piece, let dry and then add random stamping with a writing background stamp and ink. Take a Mixed Media Mini Origins Art Collection paper from the Wings series and color the rose image with various shades of red and pink Glimmes Mist and green Glimmer Mist(see the material list for all used colors in the end of this post). Then fuss cut the piece and adhere to the tag with paper glue. Add some lace and ribbon as well as a heart shape for decoration. Finish off with faux stitching around the edges, some twine and ribbon as well as a word sticker.

    For the travel/explore tag take a Maze cardboard piece and trace a tag pattern onto it, then fussy cut. Next apply Sugar Maple Glimmer Mist over the background and let dry. Now take a small manila tag and mist it with Summer Glow Glimmer Mist and add a Architextures Parchment Rub-on onto the manila tag. Cut a piece of Ordre du Jour paper and add it onto the tag for additional detail. A a with Linen Glimmer Mist misted inspirational tag on top. Then adhere the yellow misted manila tag to the tag. Decorate with a brown misted paper rose, some fussy cut leaves and a Architextures Trinkets Ink Pen. Finish off with a word sticker and some rope and twine.

I love creating tags, the more I make the more ideas I get. And you can take the same basic materials and just change the color sheme and you are good to go and create a tag for yet another theme/season. Tags are also a great way for using up little scraps and altering/including even older materials from your stash. And they are quick to make and a nice addition to a present!
