Today I have a project using the Scalloped Tag Topper. Yes I know I’ve been making loads of tags recently but I’m obsessed with this punch! I don’t own a massive amount of punches and rarely grab them, but this is such a good staple to have in your stash for making pretty tags. Must remember to use it more.
All you need is a strip 2″ wide and then punch the top and hey presto a pretty tag has emerged!
I used Soft sea foam as the base and onto this I stamped in soft suede and then a green embossing powder the dots from Forever Fern.
I then added a strip of Forever Greenery dsp. Then a Pear Pizazz die cut and a sentiment (from all of us) white embossed onto shaded spruce.
The ribbon was a bit of seam binding and some twine from the stash.
Whilst doing the zoom crafting sessions with my friends I hadn’t got quite enough supplies to make the same cards up… so I used the Whale of a Time dsp and some coordinating cardstock. I die cut some elements that I thought would work as seaweed too.
Here they are…
Love how fun and bright they are!
A couple of the sheets of paper are perfect for cutting apart and so I could use the whales and turtles as focal points.
I also added in some linen thread on a few.
For all of them I used the sentiment from the From all of us stanp set.
Last weekend I grabbed some time to do some colouring experiments with a new stamp set I’d had delivered … From all of us. I thought this was a super cute image and it’s quite a large focal image so good to get some colouring practice on.
I grabbed some whisper white and some watercolour card and stamped it using a variety of inks to try some different effects…
And then I had a colouring spree…
Oddly the one I chose to play with first and make into something was the splodgy mess one…
I had made a right old mess on this and wasn’t entirely sure if I could rescue it. Well the monkey I decided was beyond rescue but the ostrich, bear and bird (toucan?) seemed like they might be worth salvaging.
A few colouring pencils came out to strengthen the lines and features… then chop with the trimmer… outline the edge and mount on white…
Yup… happy with this one!
I found the patterned paper in the stash and mounted it on green with the green stamped sentiment cut at angles…
All in all it made this a quirky and fun card! So pleased I persevered.
It’s a good value red rubber stamp set this one… only £20 for the 8 stamps in the set… and can’t wait to see what I do with the rest of the coloured images…. not sure they will end up looking as funky as this one!
