Today I want to show you how you can create Heat Embossed Garden Tags Cards using Close To My Heart’s Stamp of the Month. This month’s Stamp of the Month, Garden Tags, might be intimidating for some if they have an aversion to coloring in images. However, there’s absolutely no requirement that you color these beauties in!
In addition to the flexibility of deciding whether to color the images in or not, I am in love with the fact that there is a coordinating Tags & Tabs Thin Cuts (Z3726) to go with this set. Close To My Heart has never had a Stamp of the Month that has a coordinating die! So this is pretty exciting. In fact, they are so popular that the dies are currently on backorder until mid-July. If you simply can’t wait until then, contact me as I do have 1 set of these dies in my inventory I’d be happy to ship you!
If you prefer to not color in these tags, you could heat emboss them just as I did. I took our Espresso Pigment Stamp Pad along with Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed the tag images.
Rather than just create one heat embossed tag, I decided to make up several. From there I decided I’d cut a second coordinating tag in Espresso Cardstock for each heat embossed tag and layer them together.
I adhered the tag duo to some Kraft Paper card bases that I had stamped with VersaMark ink (Z891.) Don’t you just love the subtle watermark look of using VersaMark ink? To finish off the cards, I added bows to the tags with our now retired Burlap Ribbon. Love the natural look of it!
I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new with this Garden Tags Stamp of the Month Set. I’d love to see you create your own heat embossed garden tags cards!
