Details

Set of 26 high-quality photopolymer stamps;
1 card frame, 2 sets of journaling lines, 6 complimentary recipe card building phrases, 1 section tab, 7 section titles and 9 coordinating section images.
Full Set Dimensions: 6x8
Price: $19

Both of these sets fill a void in my stash and they are fantastic. But they are even better together, so they are also available as the Homemade Holiday Bundle for just $33!

I am so excited to show you today's project. I'll be focusing on All Occasion Tags. I am having so much fun with this set.

I created this gorgeous little set of matching tags and cards. I absolutely love how these turned out. And you will be blown away by how simple it is to create. The card is a 4x4" Kraft card base inked all around the edges with white craft ink. The sentiment is from RetroGirly Christmas, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Here is a close up of the cards.

Now the focal image is really the star of these cards. I used the same technique for the focal image as I did for the background on the tags. So here's how I did it. Nothing too special, but the results definitely have that "wow factor".

I started by stamping the tag outline with Versamark and heat embossing with White Pearl embossing powder (Stampendous). Then I came back in and stamped the snowflake with Versamark and again heat embossed them with White Pearl. I think this is seriously my favorite snowflake silhouette ever. Now here's the magic...a little bit of emboss resist.

I have recently discovered Ranger's Distress Inks and can not get enough of them. Here I used Broken China and a blender tool to apply ink all over the tag. I varied the amount of ink and pressure. Once it was all covered, I wiped off the embossed areas with a damp paper towel to remove any excess ink.

For the center of the tags, I stamped the circle tag image and snowflake and punched them out with a 1.25" punch. Here they are all assembled.

And here's one last shot all together.

With all of the images in this set, just think of all of the occasions you could reuse this layout for!
