Love Tag With Inksheets: A Romantic MIY

Love Tag With Inksheets: A Romantic MIY

Hello everyone! It is Anna-Karin here with a romantic tag tutorial, using dies by Tim Holtz, as well as Inksheets. I made a love-themed project, but the techniques can be used for any type of project.

Inksheets are so much fun and can be used for many different techniques. Inksheets turn your Thinlits and Framelits dies into stamps, which is so cool, and now comes in many different colours. Today, I will be using the new Red Inksheets, and I thought I'd see how they would look on a kraft background, since I really like red and kraft together. I also used the Mixed Media Set, Tiny Tattered Florals set, the Tag & Bookplates and the Script Celebration Words.

As my base, I used Tim Holtz Motif Cardstock, which is a resist cardstock that comes in kraft and white. You could also clear emboss a script stamp on kraft cardstock. Die cut a tag using this sandwich: Cutting Pad, die facing up, paper, second Cutting Pad.

Time for the Inksheet and you will use this sandwich: Extended Multipurpose Platform Tab 2, Inksheets Transfer Pad, tag, Inksheet with the matte side down, die facing down, Cutting Pad. Run through your Big Shot or Vagabond. Repeat on the top of the tag.

Here you can see the final result, very cool.

Smear Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on a craft sheet and add a little bit of Ground Espresso Distress Stain. Mist with water and press the tag into the ink.

When dry, ink with Ground Espresso. The Inksheets resists the ink, as does the script pattern in the background.

Die cut flowers from watercolour paper using this sandwich: Extended Multipurpose Platform Tab 2, Precision Base Plate, paper, die facing down, Cutting Pad.

Mist the leaves with Distress Spray Stain, aiming for a textured look.

Assemble the flowers using the quilling tool that comes with the set. If the paper is too thick, you can also use a pair of tweezers. I have done a video on how to assemble these flowers, although using patterned paper instead. Ink slightly with Ground Espresso.

Die cut a word from white paper, using the same sandwich as for the flowers.

Layer a piece of patterned paper, dyed cheececloth, and a distressed Photo Booth image on the tag.

Glue the flowers to the tag and tuck in the leaves and branches.

The crinkle ribbon was dyed with Distress Ink and I tied a Heart Charm to it.

Coat the die cut word with Glossy Accents, after inking it very slightly.

You can easily make these flowers in any colour, by just using other colours of mist.

Here's a close up of the cool background, with the red Inksheet impressions and the resist script pattern.
