Mini Stamps Big Impact



Hi Chris here today sharing this cute Easter tag using the mini stamp from the Anime Fairies 2 Stamp set.  

Supplies needed to create this tag:
Manilla Tag
Sin City Stencil Template #20
Tim Holtz Distress Inks -Old Paper, Walnut Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Markers- Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Pickled Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, Stormy Sky
Embossing Folder-Darice
Sizzix Die- bunny
Vellum
Staz-on Ink
Copic Markers - B24, Y15, YR04, R04, V06
Scenic Route Stickers
Ribbon
Liquid Pearls


I started by inking over the Stencil #20 template using the Old Paper Distress ink.


I then embossed the tag with my embossing folder. A little hint, I partially cut along the fold of the embossing folder just enough to allow the tag to slip through the embossing folder.

 Here is the result.

I then stamped some mini flowers on the embossed image using the mini flower stamp from the Anime Fairies 2 collection.  I used the Distress markers to color directly on the stamps .  I stamped the flowers in multiple colors.  I added Liquid Pearls to the center of each flower. 


I then stamped the mini butterfly from this set onto vellum with Staz-on and then colored the back sid of the image with Copic markers. After fussy cutting the butterflies I attached them to the tag. 






I trimmed off the bottom of the tag that was not embossed.  I die cut out the bunny and inked edges of the bunny with Walnut Distress Ink and added the bunny to the bottom of the tag.



I added some ribbon and Baker's twine and matted the tag on card stock to finish off the tag.

 I had so much fun creating this tag I decided to use the same techniques and stamps to create this card.
I sprayed Glimmer Mist all over the tag.  After embossing the tag I "painted" the vines and flowers with distress ink and my water brush.  The butterflies were stamped on cardstock and then punched out with the Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  I  layered the flowers from Petaloo with Fabri-Tac from Beacon Adhesives and added microbeads to the centers of the flowers using Gem Tac from Beacon Adhesives. I hope you are inspired to create some project using mini stamps.
