I was looking through the Lawn Fawn blog one night (when I should have been sleeping) and saw some many beautiful “DIY patterned paper” using the Deck the Halls stamp set. I wanted to give it a try also. Here are my finished tags
Extra Details: I started with a half sheet of water color paper. Using the images from Deck the Halls stamp set, I created some patterned paper. I used two shades of green, a brown, and a red. I used second generation stamping with the darker green ink.
Once the ink was dry, I die cut the paper with the Tag You’re It die. I was able to get 6 tags from the half sheet.
I didn’t want to cover up too much of my patterned paper, so I decided to add a Tiny Tag to hold the sentiment. I cut some Tiny Tags from red patterned paper and some from kraft card stock. I used the Tiny Tag Sayings stamp set for the sentiments. I used silver embossing powder on the red tags and gold embossing powder on the kraft tags.
After the embossing powder was cooled, I added some ink blending to the Tiny Tag die cuts. The red tags needed it to help dull the white in the patterned paper and help the sentiments stand out more. After I inked the red tags, the kraft tags looked really boring, so I added some ink to them also.
Lastly, I added some Red Sparkle Lawn Trimmings to the tags. The Tiny Tag die cuts are not glued to the big tags in any way, they are only held together by the twine.
