Medallions Tag

     Happy Thursday! This week I have a mixed media tag to share with you, featuring the Mini Medallions Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, and the Medallions, For Everything, and Be Happiness Unmounted Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs!

        I started with white gesso that I coated a Ranger Manila Tag with, and to the TCW stencil in the center. Once dry, I used Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Wild Honey, and Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stains with a light spritz of water on my tag, and on a separate sheet of white cardstock for the medallions.

       When that dried, I re-applied my stencil to the tag to add Prima's Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold and Rich Copper) over the gesso. Then I embossed the design along the top and bottom in copper with the For Everything Unmounted Stamp. Using the cardstock that I previously sprayed, I embossed the Medallions Stamp onto it, fussy-cutting, and layering it three times to make a flower. 

     I used three of the Mini Medallions, also embossed in copper, and popped two of them up with foam dots. 

          The phrase was stamped in black with the Be Happiness Unmounted Rubber Stamp onto a piece of torn vellum inked along the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Then I scattered and  glued some blue sequins along the tag.

     I finished off the top with some fibers and beads that I strung together. 

     The result is this fun tag with copper accents and a bohemian vibe!

Rise and Shine Birthday Card

     Happy Thursday Stampers! My mom loves chickens and roosters, and has a collection of them, so I definitely had her mind with the Rise and Shine Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs when making her birthday card this year. I thought this kraft bag that I recycled was perfect to showcase it!

            After stamping the main image twice with permanent black ink onto white cardstock, I colored it with Distress Inks, and fussy cut the rooster on the second image. Then I mounted the image onto black cardstock with punching around the edges, and popped up the rooster over the ribbon.

          Using the same water stamping technique as my last post found here, and the same Rays of Hope Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, I just changed the colors of my Distress Inks and tucked it behind the kraft bag. Then I stamped the sentiment onto the rays with the Sophisticated Sentiments Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set.

     All of the flowers were stamped twice, colored with Distress Inks, and layered and curled using the My Sunshine Unmounted Stamp. I love how they look against the gingham, stamped with the Gingham Background Unmounted Stamp using Palette Inks (Bordeaux, Moulin Rouge, and L'Amore Red) for an ombre look!

     I finished it off with distressed edges and machine stitching. Thanks so much for stopping by, and visit Red Rubber Designs for all of these stamps and more!
