This week the Stampendous gals are teaming up with Core'dinations and May Arts for all kinds of fun projects! AND there will be prizes! Stampendous is giving away three prize packages including the Cling Jumbo Butterfly Trio (WITH Free Template included), A Jumbo Perfectly Clear Handle, a random assortment of the David Tutera products, some Core’dinations goodies (again random), a Sand-It tool to make the most of your ColorCore paper, and some yummalicious May Arts Ribbons (random assortment). So be sure to comment on everyone's posts all week long!
Yesterday Stampendous showcased this Giraffe Tag I designed for the April Catalog so today I would like to share with you a quick tutorial on how you can make it. It features May Arts burlap ribbon, satin ribbon and teal chevron ribbon. Co'ordinations paper and Stampendous Teal Encrusted Jewel Technique Kit, and, of course, our new Giraffe stamp!
Stamp the image with Archival Ink in black. Color wash/dry brush with distress inks. I like to use chalk applicators that look like eye shadow applicators. You can find these at JoAnn's.
Cover tag with burlap ribbon and trim with lace and satin ribbon. Trim Core'dinations card stock to size. Rough up edges with distress tool or scissors and sand the front. With a very sharp paper trimmer, carefully trim very, very thin slices of matching card stock. If it doesn't automatically curl use something round to put a curl in it. Buch together and secure with glue. Gather chevron ribbon with thread. Add ribbons at the top of the tag.
Position and secure card stock and image as shown. Add bronze mica, teal color fragments and crystal micro glitter using a clear adhesive as shown.
I used the below instructions to emboss the buttons...It is way cool and adds a whole new dimension to your project!
Today we're hopping with all three teams, and tomorrow is the BIG Blog Hop!! Better make an extra large pot of coffee tomorrow morning. Or wait until Saturday when you're comfy, because you have all weekend to complete your hopping and commenting. And you do want to comment...the prizes are crazy fun this time!! Here's who is hopping today!
