I am truly hoping that you enjoyed our live video together yesterday where I shared not only how I created the distressed tags, but also Stampin’ Blends coloring tips for the Fruitful Blessings fall cards I shared with you!!
If you were unable to join our live chat and crafting time, I’ve got the replay below for you!
Be sure to watch the video below if you’d like to see the step by step creation of these unique, one of a kind distressed tags featuring the Distressed Tile embossing folder, ink and Metallic Enamel Effects!
If you don’t have time to watch the video, I hope these step by step photos will help you visualize how I created the distressed tags with Blending Brushes, ink and the Metallic Enamel Paint! There are so many possibilities and different ways to use the products and achieve similar results!
The tags were die cut out of the piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the tag die from the Merriest Trees die set.
As I always suggest, I swatched the fall colors of Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers I thought I would use on my 2 cards and used all of those colors. You can purchase these supplies by clicking the product photos at the bottom of this post! Thank you so much for your order!
Both card bases are Thick Very Vanilla (a color I don’t tend to use much, but looks great with fall colors!), and I flicked my Bronze Blend onto the base card before layering the Copper Clay Distressed Tile mat layer. You can see from the photo above, I added extra leaves to my acorn bunch, and actually added a 3rd acorn as well. I finished off this card with Neutrals sequins and ribbon and a greeting stamped on a little flag.
Above: I colored and die cut the 2 Fruitful Blessings images, placed them on the tags, but felt they needed “more”. That’s why I stamped and colored extra leaves (above) to add behind the die cut images.
Below: I wanted just a couple little die cut leaves, and had these left over spaces on my Very Vanilla piece of cardstock, so instead of getting out green cardstock to die cut them, I just colored the cardstock with green Stampin’ Blends markers and then die cut the leaves.
Truth: I actually pulled this piece out of my recycle bin to do that! 🙂 hee hee.
Below: Pairing the Exposed Brick embossing folder with the Distressed Tile embossing folder was a win for a lovely rustic look!
Below: this was the final card created live on the video… with the beautiful Naturally Gilded paper as a background!
