Hello Clique friends! Valeska here again to share with you a layout that I made repeating tags on my page. I love this blog inspiration category. I think repeating forms or images is a good way to get attention to your design. In this layout, I chose repeat tags using the Add-on kit Summer Feels. This add on paper pack includes the cut apart papers from Simple Stories Sunkissed collection and papers from Fancy Pants Designs.
There is no special technique on this layout. I just cut apart all the tags I wanted to use and also cut two photos in the same size.
First of all, I made four holes with my crop-a-dile tool and place an eyelet in it. I used a sewing thread between the holes on the right and the left, making loops in the thread for more movement.
All tags and elements of my page were glued with 3d stickers to give more height and thus make the decoration stand out. I also added some brads too.
To crop my photos like the tags that I was using, I printed each picture and placed the tag on top of the image I wanted to preserve. With my scissors, I cut around and made the hole with my crop-a-dile tool. So, I place another tag under the already cropped photo to give a feeling of colored shadow.
Hope you enjoyed it and be inspired to create on repeat designs in your projects. Thank you for stopping by and make sure to see all the new kits on Clique store. See you next time!
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a fun technique that fits with our Stamp-tember theme this month: how to emboss velvet using rubber stamps and a household iron. I love to incorporate different textures in my art and there is something about the cooler Fall months that always has me reaching into my fabric stash. Embossing velvet is a simple technique that produces beautiful results that are sure to add a wow-factor to your work.
How to Emboss Velvet Using a Rubber Stamp and a Household Iron
First, lay a stamp, rubber side up, on a flat surface. Next, place the velvet, nap side down, over the stamp and lightly mist the back of the fabric with water. Finally, press the iron, set to the wool setting (no steam), onto the fabric for about 20 seconds.
Lift the velvet from the stamp to reveal the embossed design. The resulting impression can appear shadowy or lustrous depending on the angle and reflection of light.
Here are a couple more examples. I liked the branded edge of the velvet so I left it along the bottom rather than trimming it away. I'm looking forward to using these pieces on future projects!
I used bits and pieces from several kits to create my tag. I pulled patterned paper prints and colorful embellishments in a fresh Fall palette.
Hello! It's Donna here with another post using the November kit "Cornucopia".
I've been quite busy the past weeks prepping for my daughter's 3rd birthday celebration so I opted to create something simple yet pretty for today's post.
I made a couple of tags, which can be used as gift tags or an embellishment to another Fall-themed or Thanksgiving-themed project.
I traced an old tag I have in my stash and used that as basis my tags. To add a bit of flare, I used a decorative border punch and cut the top and bottom edges of the journaling cards. I also ink the edges with a dark brown ink.
Of course, I have to use this beautiful paper again. It's really fussy cut heaven!
A black ribbon completed the tag!
That's all from me today! I hope you liked it! Happy crafting,
