2 tags

Just sharing a couple of tags I made for the Make The Day Special blog. They both use the same flower stamp from the gorgeous May Store kit. The full kit is currently sold out but the 2 half-kits are still available.

For the first tag I created a background on glossy cardstock using alcohol inks before stamping the image. I then embellished with a very fine black trim and used ribbon and leather thong through the hole.

Materials used: glossy cardstock, alcohol inks, Unity stamp, black Ranger Archival ink.
Also used: black trim, organza ribbon and leather thong.


For the second tag I stamped the image and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used distress ink to colour the tag before ironing the tag to melt and take away the embossing. I then used the ledger stamp and chalk ink to stamp randomly on the tag before adding a sentiment. The next step was to sew around the tag and add the ribbons before adding the embellishment.


Materials used: Distress inks, Unity stamps (all from May Store kit), Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, Colorbox chalk ink, Fancy Pants ribbon, MME fabric brad, Making Memories ribbon.
Also used: hemp thread.
