Two Souls Wedding Tags – Kaisercraft.

“How gorgeous is this Two Souls range. Instead of making wedding cards I enjoy making tags these days that can be attached t gifts and flowers. They are quick to make and can be just as detailed as a card.” JN

Stenciled tag using expanding mousse

If you are not subscribed to the Short Cuts Craft News letter then you probably missed this tag I created for them using my Moroccan Tile Stencil and Expanding Mousse.EM3JN

The background was an old one I created using Tsukineko Dye ink reinkers and just worked on top of that for a stunning end result.

EM1JN

Simply apply the mousse through a stencil and heat using a heat gun to create a stunning texture and end result.
TIP: Use a good heat gun with lots of heat for a good result, the smaller slower heat guns don’t work as well.

I finished off the tag with a few random bits and pieces from my table and some fun heritage people from Tim Holtz.

I also added some gold and silver Distress Crayon touches around the people – and look ow amazingly they sit on top of the mousse and add shimmer.

The Expanding Mousse and Metallic Distress Crayons were kindly sponsored to me by TroCraft South Africa. All other products used are my own.

How to combine stamps to make a card and tag set with Joy Clair.

I love versatility and when it comes to stamps, combining the different sets from Joy Clair together is effortless. I combined these 2 sets together for my card and tag

God’s Promises and Rise and Shine

20190229_main1JN
For my card I used God’s Promises and Rise and Shine stamp sets together. I started off by stamping the sun from the Rise and Sine set first repeatedly in yellow ink. I then stenciled my sunshine stencil over the top edge of the card using the same yellow inks. Stamped the sentiment in black VersaFine Clair ink below the sun rising, and then added the small sun from God’s Promises stamps set. I stamped the small sun onto white cardstock, blended over it to add colour and then cut it out. It was raise using foam tape and the center of the sun glazed with dimensional glaze. All of these yellow suns are sure to bring some sunshine into someone’s day with this quick and easy card.

I also created this tag using the Rise and Shine stamp set. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and inked the edges around the side only using yellow ink. Some torn experimental pieces of paper using spray inks were sewn at the bottom of the tag in layers. I used the rooster image stamped and painted for another project, but it turns out that I didn’t use it and so the head was chopped off and recycled for this tag. I like how the rooster looks like he is shouting the sentiment from the rooftops.

Remember to add some diamante and embellishments to further dress up your tag and add interest.

Sangria Inspired Christmas Tag.

Every year I make loads of Christmas cards, but this year I am creating tags for friends and family. A quick alternative to attach to a gift and even packets of freshly baked biscuits.
The tag is often underestimated but this will become my go to way of adding a quick thank you to gifts – quick and easy to make with loads of impact.

For my card I used a combination of VersaFine Clair ink to create a bright and beautiful background.
On top of my background I stamped the fun pattern from the Totally Stamp Set in Black VersaFine Clair.
Layered on top is the simple sentiment finished off with the paint swash detail.

Precious_hop_JN_Main

Celebr8 Stencilling Technique.

Use your pigment inks and Texture pate to make your stencilled images really come to life with this easy to do technique.

C8_products_main
The Wholesaler is a proud sponsor of Kunsvlyt and we hope you will be inspired by Season 2. We will be giving away weekly prizes of products featured on the show, so keep watching Kunsvlyt and keep coming back here…

C8_products_detail1

step1 – Tack your stencil down with some washi tape to keep it in place on your cardstock. Start by inking the leaves using the Aloe Vera pigment ink.
C8_products_step1step 2 -Lightly ink the flowers through the stencil by tapping the ink pad through the stencil in selected areas only.
C8_products_step2
step 3 – Use your Fantastix tool to carefully blend the ink colours together to create depth. Add your last colour of ink, Versamagic Purple Hydrangea to the flowers and blend again.
C8_products_step3
step 4 – Use a palette knife and add a thin layer of Matt Finish Texture Paste through the stencil while it is still in place. Carefully remove the stencil and leave the texture paste to dry. The paste makes the ink colour underneath seem brighter and adds so much life and dimension to the otherwise flat stencilled images.
C8_products_step4TIP: To add texture I used a sponge dauber and tapped the Texture Paste down to give texture to the paste.
I love the effect of the blended inks and the finishing off the paste offers. A beautiful sealed in effect making the ink look really rich and beautiful.
