SPECIAL DELIVERY TAG tutorial by Tanja

Hi there,

it's Tanja here today and I would like to share the step-by-step tutorial for this Christmas Tag with you:

  • cut out two tags - one from burlap and one from cardboard - using the medium tag from the Sizzix Tag Collection
  • glue them together with Gel Medium
  • also add some Gel Medium to the edges of the burlap to avoid fraying 
  • let dry thoroughly
  •  stamp the stocking from the STAMPlorations Joyful stamp set twice with Memento (Tuxedo Black) 
  • cut out both images
  • color one of the images with Delta Markers, Liquid Applique, Wink of Stella Silver Glitter and add Glossy Accents to the pompons
  • glue one on top of the other in order to get a sturdy embellishment
  • go around the edges with a black PITT Artist Pen for a neat finish
  • set aside to dry
  • color the burlap with Distress Paints (Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough)
  • stamp the sentiment from the same STAMPlorations stamp set with Versamark on a strip of black cardstock and heat-emboss it with WOW! Metallic Silver embossing powder
  • layer the sentiment strip onto a piece of silver-dotted acetate and adhere in to the tag with double-sided adhesive
  • dye a piece of seam-binding with the same Distress Paint colors used to color the burlap tag

Here are close-ups of the stocking and the sentiment:

Thanks for stopping by.

I am wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season.
