Simple Stamping Day 3; Twinkle Tags
Hello and welcome back! I have a set of holiday gift tags to share today. Every year I create several Christmas tags for my own use, to swap with my crafty sisters, and to use as small gifts. I used a new Transparent Set; “Let It Snow ”. It was perfect for the simple stamping technique I had in mind — one layer stamping and the ‘assembly line method’.
I employed the ‘assembly line method’ when making these tags. I started by applying 4 pigment ink colors directly to my stamp from mimi ink pads. I then misted my stamp once and stamped the image onto pre-cut pieces of white cardstock;
I used pigemnt inks because they contain a vibrant and deep color, and they mist with water wonderfully.
Once my stamped pieces were dry, I stamped “Twinkle” in black on top of the images. I created a one-layer stamped piece…no fussy cutting or coloring. I also added a gemstone to the tops of the trees.
I added a bit of ribbon to the backs of the stamped pieces then matted and mounted them with foam tape onto black;
I have another simple stamping project for you tomorrow, stay tuned! Be sure to enter YOUR simply stamped project into our Gallery for a chance to win Penny Black stamps. For details, see Monday’s post.
