Lacy Edges Tag and Card

Hi there,

there is a Mini Release Blog Hop over on the STAMPlorations Blog and I got the chance to work with the fabulous new Lacy Edges and Borders die set.

My first project is a Coffee Tag/Bookmark:

  • cut out a tag from Gmund Beer Paper
  • use one of the versatile CUTplorations Lacy Edges and Borders dies on both sides of the tag
  • stamp the circle and two cute little coffee icons from the STAMPlorations Coffee Petites set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
  • add the sentiment from the STAMPlorations All you need is Coffee set with that same brown ink
  • mask off the coffee icons and the space around the circles and add an ombre background using Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • remove the masks and add some splatters with the Prima Marketing Metallic Accents
  • color the images with Copic, Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • ink up the edges of the tag and dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Ink (Ground Espresso)
  • thread the seam binding through the hole of the tag to finish it

My second project is a vibrant Mixed Media Card:

  • create a background on a piece of watercolor paper using watered-down Distress Re-Inkers (Picket Fence, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry)
  • use one of the brand new CUTplorations Lacy Edges and Borders dies on the right side of the panel
  • mix some DecoArt Media Crackle Paste with Distress Re-Inker (Wilted Violet) and apply it through on of the hearts of the ARTplorations Zen Hearts stencil
  • let the crackle paste dry thoroughly
  • ink up the edges of the panel and the raised areas with Distress Ink (Black Soot)
  • cut out the CUTplorations Happy word die from black cardstock and cover the sentiment with Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter
  • use a sticker for the second part of the sentiment and a label from the Dymo Label Maker for the third part
  • stamp the script from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements set with Delicata (Silvery Shimmer) for more texture
  • add splatters with black gouache
  • add a strip of silver glitter paper to the right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase

Don't forget to leave comments for there a prizes to be won:
1 winner of a $15 gift certificate and 1 winner of her choice of either the Lacy Edges or Winter & Spring Stitched Landscape dies.
Commenting closes on Tuesday, February 21st.
Winners will be announced on March 10th.
Enjoy the rest of the hop.
