Rubber Café Design team Project: Birthday Tag Card!

Jun 25, 2011

Well hello you beautiful weekend!  Boy am I glad to see you. This week has been crazy here at my house so I’m so glad I still found the time to get crafty in my studio.  That is the ONE thing that keeps me sane. 

My project today goes along with the birthday theme challenge this week over at the Rubber Café and uses the BEAUTIFUL Be Stylish (Corset) stamp set. I decided to create this tag card for a friend of mine.

Yes it’s a tag AND a card!

Isn’t the detail on the Be Stylish stamp set  amazing????

I turned this little tag into a mini card that you can attach to your gift bag.  If your friend is a crafter they can simply cut off the card backing and use it in their next project as well. 

My inspiration for this tag was of course from the Tim Holtz Adirondack inks, the stamp set, and my need to play with water! 

Yes I did say water . . my water brush of course!!! SO MUCH FUN!

If you’ve never used your water pen with Tim’s inks you have to try it.   Simply dab your inks onto a slick surface. I used my large acrylic stamp block. Then use your water pen to pick up the ink and color away.  It’s really that easy and not messy at all.

I also watered down some pretty Lumiere paint and used that to add some shimmer to the finished piece. It really sparkles. You can see it a little bit in the bottom right corner of the photo below.

Then I topped the corset off with some Want2Scrap Baby Bling Pearls and the saying with Amber Rhinestones, added my sentiment that comes with the stamp set, and accented the corset with some stickles.  I also used dimensional adhesive and beautiful lace trim to put it all together.

I hope this inspires you to create a birthday card tag for that special person in your life. . .  and get those water brushes and inks out.  You’ll have so much fun! 

Have a great weekend!
