Chalk Talk Tags


I'm sharing a couple of tags with you today that I demonstrated at a recent workshop party.  They are so simple to make but are really effective.  This first one is a normal straight forward tag with the stamped image cut out then mounted onto the corresponding framelit in Very Vanilla.  I stamped the tag from Chalk Talk in Early Espresso then rubbed over it using a Sponge Dauber with Crisp Cantaloupe.  I got this idea from Dawn's Stampin Studio and you can see a video tutorial here

Everyone was a little nervous stamping with this large tag but it took the ink really well and they all made fab tags.  It's lovely to see the smiles when they saw perfect results! 

I was a little nervous rubbing the ink over the tag but there's no need to worry with the coloured inks just let Black or White dry a little longer.  I learnt that the hard way when I made the example below! 



This tag is Basic Black stamped onto Whisper White.  Then a second tag is stamped.  Let it dry completely!  Then rub a colour over the something banner.  This can be cut out and attached with some Dimensionals.  I added a Basic Rhinestone to each off the corners for extra glam.  The base for the tag was cut from a folded piece of Basic Black card stock.  I placed the edge of the framelit past the fold so it didn't cut through and created a folded tag. This could be used for a special message inside or you could make a little pocket for some folded money.  Here it is open to let you see. 


These tags can be used on their own or on a card and are great for any occasion.  Super to have this set on your shelf with Halloween and Christmas coming up.
