Hi ASD friends
Thank you for joining me in the Alex Syberia Designs blog today.
I am sharing a card with a matching gift tag that I designed using some new products released this month by Alex Syberia Designs.
Did you see the beautiful Chrysanthemum Stamp Set? Whoa! It’s a beauty!
I know some crafters get a bit intimidated by layering stamps because of lining up the stamps. I have stamped many layering stamps and some very complicated ones and yes, it is intimidating. In my opinion, I don’t want something that brings me joy become too challenging.
Well, friends, be assured this layering stamp is one of the easiest layering stamps I have used, and it gives dramatic results.
By using my MISTI, I lined up my first stamp and then stamped three base layers. As the stamps lines up easily, I then just followed the layers. I used a gradient of light to dark blues/teals for the Chrysanthemum flowers.
Of course I had a Chrysanthemum left purposefully for a gift tag. I die cut the brand new and definitely new staple in my stash, Signature Tags Die Set. This set has fun elements to give you lots of options.
I die cut another panel using the Meadow Magic Cover Die. I then die cut two tags, one from the Meadow Magic and one plain. Using one of the elements from the Tag Set, I die cut the front and added champagne gold cardstock at the back before adding the extra plain tag die cut. This is nice as it tidies up the back of the tag and gives a clean surface to write a greeting to and from.
The champagne cardstock brings both the card and the tag together, and then finished with gold ribbon.
Well friends, I hope you feel inspired?!
Until next time….
