Over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog this month has been all about stamping - thanks to Sherri (a fellow Master Forger) and her Etsy Shop selling Ippity Stamps. Sherri is sponsoring this month's Blog Hops (on the 26th & 27th). Challenge #3 was to create an embellishment with stamps. I decided to take a plain manilla tag and see what I could do with a few scraps from my Spetember Counterfeit Kit.
I stamped a wood-grain frame directly onto the tag and added strips of patterned paper after running them through my EK Success border punch. I then stamped the leafy circle (by Artemio) three times onto blue & white patterned paper and punched the images out with a 1" circle punch. Finally I stamped the large dotty circle (also Artemio) once onto the same patterned paper and punched four tiny circles out of it. A little ribbon and some brown pearls and it was ready for a project. The scraps are from the page I made here for Scrapbookers Anonymous.
I'm away on a scrapbooking retreat this weekend and I wanted a quick card to give to the organiser ... a quick trim of the ribbon, a fold of some cardstock and the addition of some stamped letter tiles and ... hey presto! ... a card was created! I can see me making a lot more of these tags - they are a great way to use up scraps and can fit equally well on a page or a card.
