Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Dream Tag.
To create my Dream Tag, I’ve used a variety of dies, stamps and stencils from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as a couple of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
Step One. Die cut the small tag from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Toppers die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the Dot Dot Dot… stencil on top of the tag. Using a palette knife with Texture Paste Opaque Matte put the paste through the stencil. Remove the stencil and allow time for the texture paste to dry.
Step Two. Sprinkle Magenta Nuance in Hot Pink, Turquoise and Ocean on the tag. Spritz the powder with water. Allow time to dry. Once the tag has dried, apply Emboss It Ink to one of the background stamps from the Words & Layers stamp set and stamp on the left hand side of the tag. Sprinkle Magical Mysteries – Kiss of The Fairy Embossing Powder over the stamped image. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Die cut the small tag topper from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Toppers die out of a piece of book page. Ink the edges of the topper using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Choose one of the reinforcements out of the Reinforcement Variety Pack. Die cut one reinforcement out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the reinforcement using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Die cut the Street lamp from the Streetlights die out of black cardstock.
Step Six. Die cut both Blooming Branches from the Blooming Branches die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Seven. Die cut the single bud from the Budding Florals die out of kraft cardstock. Trim the stem of the bud to your desired length.
Step Eight. From the Morning Letters stamp set, you’ll need the letters to spell the word dream. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the letters and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut around the word. Ink the edges of the word using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Nine. Cut a piece of cheesecloth.
Step Ten. Adhere the book page tag topper to the top of the tag. Adhere the reinforcement over top of the circle at the top of the tag.
Step Eleven. Adhere the cheesecloth piece to the left hand side of the tag as desired. Adhere the street lamp 3/8″ from the left of the tag. Adhere the two blooming branches as desired around the street lamp.
Step Twelve. Foam square the single bud 1/8″ from the left of the tag. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the Dream word 3/8″ from the bottom and all the way to the right hand side of the tag.
Step Thirteen. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the top of the tag.
