Stampendous! Color Fragments Blog Hop

Today the Stampendous team has something extra special planned for you...we have combined our regular monthly challenge with a blog hop showcasing some of the great new products released at CHA last month! 


My card started as a tag but it wouldn't all fit so I turned it into a card!  First I stamped Butterfly Post with versamark ink and embossed it with Clear Bark EP onto a piece of pale pink cardstock that was previously sprayed with Tattered Rose and Creme de Chocolat Glimmer Mist sprays.  (all products used and most links are in a list at the bottom of the pictures).  Then I tore my edges and distressed them with Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen distress ink from Tim Holtz.



I added a small bit of hardware around one of the "stamps".  It started as silver, which just wouldn't do, so I embossed it with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.


For the tag I started by dry embossing it through my cuttlebug with the Jumbo Damask stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils.  I then rubbed Rose and Gold inka gold paint over the embossed areas, and finished it off with a bit of Vintage Photo Ink around the edges.  Lastly I used Fran's embedded jewel technique on the bottom portion of the tag.  I applied versamark ink then a layer of Aged Rose enamel.  BEFORE that was heat set I sprinkled on some Shaved Ice, Bronze Glass Glitter, and Rose color fragments and THEN heated it.


On top of the tag, but under the pink panel I added a chipboard butterfly from Tattered Angels that I embossed with part Gold detail powder and part Aged Rose and added some of the Rose Color Fragments there as well.

The base of the card was stamped with the new Calligraphy Sampler in Vintage Photo ink.  Added a smidge of yummy May Arts ribbon and a Prima flower, and volia!

Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo distress ink (Ranger)
Versamark pad (Tsukineko)
Tattered Rose & Creme de Chocolat Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels)

  52. Loved your tutorial and how you went from a tag to a card. It made me laugh because I was at work the other day and showed someone a tag I made and they asked why would I make a tag. I tried to explain but they didn't get it since they are not into crafts. Now I can tell them it's b/c I can use it as a decorative element on a card!! Thanks for participating in the bloghop and for the great giveaway!!
