Be Unique!

I recently bought another stamp set from Tim Holtz, the "way with words" and I LOVE it! Along with it I also bought two new Sizzix embossing folders from the Tim Holtz Alterations range.

Yesterday I finally found the time to have a play with it and this is what I came up with:

I had a lot of fun play creating the background of the tag, using DI "black soot", masking tape and Ranger clear embossing powder with the Tim Holtz stamp.

I added some structure to the white ribbon by crumpling it with my fingers and dabbing it to the DI "barn door"ink pad from various sides.

The lovely moth image is a stamp from wonderfully talented stamp designer (and shop owner) Drycha from 3rdEye!

I dry embossed some white card using the Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades "Stencil" embossing folder, cut out the single letters and blended the raised areas and edges with DI "barn door" before glueing them to the tag.

I also created two tiny tabs using the Sizzix "Tiny Tabs and Tags" Alterations die. They were fixed to the tag for more interest. I hope you like the tag!

Thank you for visiting!

  1. Das ist ja eine tolle Idee! Die Anordnung der Texte umd die kleinen Motten als Embellishments gefallen mir unheimlich gut, auch die Farbwahl ist super. Kurzum: ein tolles Knallerteilchen.

  2. I am loving that 'way with words' stamp Claudia, it looks amazing on your beautiful tag. Love how you added the tabs and the red really lifts the tag - beautiful work. Hugs, Anne x

  3. Fantastic tag - I love that new sentiments stamp set too... and I love what you've done with it here. The embossed letters are a brilliant touch.
