Hello! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I’d like to share a tag with you today.
For my base I’ve used Graphic 45’s Large Tag Album. This is a sturdy piece of Kraft cardstock (comes in black as well) with a grommet already attached.
Using my tag as a guide, I traced around the image on the paper I want on my tag. I traced it twice, once for the front & once for the back. I then traced in the center of the grommet and using a 1/2″ EK Success circle punch, I centered that over my traced circle & punch it out. This will allow it to perfectly fit over the hole on the tag, allowing the grommet to show through.
Using Angel Craft Podge, I use the attached brush applicator & covered the entire piece of paper, then adhered it to my tag. This is a very easy to use adhesive, and very strong! After adhering both the front and back side of the tag, I edged the entire tag in Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I’m ready to decorate it.
Using a Julie Nutting stamp from Prima, I inked her up with black Staz-on ink on Ranger Water-color paper.
I’ve colored the image with my new Tim Holtz Distress markers (colors listed below).
I stamped out her dress on some coordinating paper from the same collection, then adding a little bit of shading with the markers. After fussy-cutting out her dress and headband, I added her onto the stamped image. I then cut the entire thing out. After cutting out my image, I used a Black Soot distress marker to go around all the edges of my image, giving it a finished look.
Using Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit I made a handmade flower from the same paper collection.
I love to make my own flowers, this way you can match anything you’re working on. For my die I used Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms Die. I cut out all the petals with my Sizzix Big Shot Machine.
Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out a beautiful Floral Flourish (design #37429) and added that to my tag. I also added my colored image, adhering it to chipboard beforehand. I added my beautiful handmade flower, along with several Wild Orchid Craft flowers. I also added a few leaves all using hot glue.
Using a beautiful stamp from JustRite Stampers Whisper of Wings, I stamped my sentiment then cut it from a Spellbinders Label Fortys die, using my Big Shot. I also backed it with chipboard then adhered it with Angel Craft Tape.
To finish off my tag, I added some beautiful satin ribbon to the top. Please click on the video below to see the process of how this came together.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ve enjoyed my project share with you!!
