Hi Friends, I am so excited to share with you a tutorial from the talented Irit from Irit Shalom’s Designs! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Hugs, Joanna

Today I made a tutorial for Inspired by Stamping and I am going to show you the simple and fun way to make a fancy tag in no time. Here is the supply list for this tag:

Stamps: IBS Doilies

Inks: Clearsnap Frost White, Truffle Dona Salazar Mixed Media ink

Embossing powder: White

Paints: Tim Holtz Distress stains

Ranger white tag, ribbon, lace, Handmade Halo glass pebble and brass key charm

Step 1: Gather you supplies (the embellishment are not on this photo)

Ink some of your Doilies with Frost White ink and stamp them randomly over the tag. I used to ink with Clear embossing ink and white embossing powder, but I found that white ink +white powder on white cardstock give us the better effect.


As you can see I made my stamping random, and some of stamps are stamped just partly on the edges. Heat emboss it with white embossing powder and let it dry a bit. Just a couple of minutes is enough.

Step 2:Cover the  embossed tag with a mix of distress stains using some make up foam or a real paint applicator. I used 3 different colors of stains, also you can see just 2 on the photo.

Now wipe it with a baby wipe and  your white doilies will be seen clearly over the painted tag.

Step 3: Make a central stamped doily over some Kraft cardstock.


After stamping with white ink  and white powder heat embossing, punch a circle using your circle punch  as I did here or use your circle die  or any other cutting device.

Now add the Kraft circle over some fancy lace with 3d foam glue and add a glass pebble on the middle. You can also use any other round embellishment as your center: brad, button, epoxy  etc.

Make a huge bow  and add some small brass charm over it.

Here is my finished tag

    Thanks for the tutorial. Your tag is lovely! Any advice for cutting the tag if a person doesn’t have any ready made ones?
