Hello! I am finally able to sit down and do some crafting today as everyone is back to work and the house is quiet. I have been down in my craft room most of the day just trying out some things I've wanted to do lately, but not had the time to do.
I am participating in Papertrey's Makeit-Monday #147 today, where Betsy Veldman shows us how to take a single stamp and stamp it repeated times and create multiple layers on a tag or embellishment. Betsy used one of the Papertrey Tag sets for her video. You can check it out here. I only have a couple Tag sets, and the first embellishment I made uses the Round and Round Anniversary set, which are similar to tags. I cut out Matt Stack 1 and the Layered Matt Stack 1 for the base of the tag. I stamped the swirly image from the R&R set onto the white Matt Stack 1. Then I stamped the berry/leaf image three times, once on Aqua Mist cardstock with Aqua Mist ink, then twice onto white cardstock with Pure Poppy and Ocean Tides inks. I cut around the berries and colored the edges with a copic marker R22. Then I cut around each of the tiny leaves and colored around the edges with copic marker BG70. I mounted the Aqua Mist circle onto the white Matt Stack with glue dots to give it a little lift. Then aI added the berries and leaves with foam adhesive (VERY tiny pieces!), to give them more lift. I thought it "needed" something, so I added some aqua rhinestones for some bling.
