This image lends itself well to being heat embossed! I began by stamping the image onto a scrap of white chipboard (the backing that comes with Stampin' Up! designer series paper) using Versamark ink. I covered it with gold embossing powder, heat embossed, and then cut out the image using scissors. Next I stamped the greeting from Short & Sweet into the center using Elegant Eggplant ink. The tag was stenciled, sprayed, stamped and sponged - notice the little flourishes along the edge? I just stamped a small portion of the Elizabeth tag along the edge of the tag using Elegant Eggplant ink. Here is a close up:
I created a few folded paper roses that I embellished with dazzling diamonds. The small flowers were punched using the Itty Bitty Shapes punch. I then painted them with Champagne Mist shimmer paint and added the adhesive pearls before adhering them to the tag with glue. The cheesecloth was cut in strips and sprayed with ink (Tempting Turquoise and Perfect Plum) and added to the tag.
You can totally change the look of a stamp just by changing its orientation! Here, with the help of my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the image using Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White card stock - but I did so vertically. I then stamped the image onto scrap paper and cut it out to create a mask. I covered the first image with the mask and stamped the second image onto the card stock. I repeated this process until I had all four images stamped. Next I used the stamp-a-ma-jig and the Lovely Letters Alphabet to stamp the letters into the ovals. The final touch was adding some dazzling diamonds and some adhesive pearls. The piece was mounted onto a Crumb Cake card stock base.
