Fabulous Friend Tag by Angie Coomber

Image
 Hello arty friends, Angie here with a tag for you. I'm always making things for my friends (where would we be without them?) and this time I chose to make a tag. I've been doing A LOT of gelli printing lately (it'so addictive, right?!), so I chose a few prints which I thought might work together and used one of them to create a tag. I then used the flower stamp on various gelli prints and cut them out - some green ones for the leaves and some shades of red for the flowers. I cut out the individual flowers and buds from the one I liked best and glued them to a green piece. I used embossing ink and crystal embossing powder to emboss some flowers on the tag, as well as stamping them in grey archival ink. I also used another background stamp from the same set. I used guilding wax on the edges of the tag. Next I glued the flower to one side of the tag and then stamped a sentiment which I also added to the tag. Finally, some stickles for a little sparkle... Have a creative weeke

Tri-Fold Tag Card

Hello Rubber Dance friends.  Gail here with a tri-fold tag card.   This is the front of the card And it opens up like this I started with a 20 x 30 cm piece of green Bazzill Dots card.  I folded it in three, cut the corners to give my tag shape and inked the edges. I cut my tags from Authentique designer card using a Stamplorations stitched tag die.  I stamped the girl from This Is Me and hearts, grid and scribbly circles from Mixed Media Marks in shades of pink.  I added a girl die cut from peach card.  More hearts and stitches from Mixed Media Marks and the girl from Believe In You stamped in shades of pink. I've added a pocket on this tag so I can include a gift card or cash.  The balloon is die cut and embossed.  All the black stamped words come from both This Is Me and Believe In You .  I added some jumbo pebble brads to the top of each tag.   Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you feel inspired to get out your stamps and create.   Share your makes using Rubber Dance stamps

Atc´s Pencil Marks

Image
  Hello, I'm Vero (@Vero.kt) and I welcome you to the inspiration of today Wednesday. How's everybody?  I've been  playing  with Rubber Dance's   Pencil Marks #1 ,  I nky Friends   and    Mixed media marks     to create a colorfu  Atcs  that I hope you like. I tell you that the first thing I do when the new Rubber Dance stamps arrive home, I test them on different sheets, with different inks to get familiar with them. On this occasion, I chose to try them on the Gelli Plate with acrylic paints (I had been watching Susanne's videos and I wanted to do my versions) When I had a number of papers /backgrounds ready, the ones I liked the most were cut down to the size of an atc (2.5 x 3,5 inches). I kept adding layers and textures, with black permanent inks, a bit of white embossing (try this technique, the definition is ideal). Finally it's time to stamp and color the stamp you chose from the set Inky Friends. One of the parts that I enjoy the most is the composition

Artist Trading Cards - be happy

Image
Happy Monday everyone, I'm showing you two ATCs today.  The base is a Gelli print that I foiled.  I also made the flowers out of Gelliprints. In my experience, StazOn adheres best to Gelliprints without smearing. That's always a pity, isn't it? So I only use this one. The little cut-out butterflies are just a small addition as decoration.  Enjoy a good week, stay creative and healthy. Dunja xx
