Here's Yer Tip...

Hello, again! :) This week over at Tip Top Tuesday, we've been asked to make some tags and to give a tip. Well, all right! I shall do both!!!

Like I stated earlier this month, I really don't make a lot of tags, but since I've been participating in a bunch of challenges that are using tags as the thing to make (that doesn't sound right...), I've made quite a few! I'm excited because I'll be using these for handing out to the neighbors this holiday season!!! :)

I've made four more tags for this super challenge~

And here's my tip (used this while making these tags): If you want to emboss in any ink color you have (that is not a pigment ink, but a water based ink), stamp your stamp in Versamark first, THEN tap with the ink of your choice until the color covers the Versamark. Stamp the image onto your project, cover with clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Voila!!! Any color of embossing you could ever imagine or want! :) I use it all the time--I used it for each of the sentiments on my tags...take a look!

Here's #1: Purple Poinsettia~

#2: Holly Jolly~

#3: Merry Wreath~

#4: Snowflaked Tag~

Hope you like them! I had some fun making them--it was cathartic! :) Merry stamping!!! :)

Hey girl! Thanks for stopping back! So good to have you, and I am now your newest follower. The music I always use is actually vintage sheet music. I go to antique stores (primarily in Minnesota while visiting) and I buy old sheet music. I just love the way it looks on my projects. Thanks for asking.
Thanks again, and I will chat with you soon.
Blessings,
Karen
