Creating Fabulous Tags with Tina Connolly

Hi everyone, today I’ve got a tutorial on how to make this sweet tag.  It’s part of a large 60cm by 90cm canvas that I am creating with around thirty tags.  It will be  showcasing a variety of techniques and mediums, but all featuring the gorgeous products by Lindy’s, as well as Couture Creations dies.
Here’s is my tag….
(The lace was used on a different tag which I’ll show you later on).
I actually used the Couture Creations “Honeypot” die as a stamp with the “C’est la vie Cerise” spray to create a subtle background layer.  I then stamped a crackle pattern in black ink.  I die cut “Honeypot” and heat embossed the cut using “Angel Wings Gold”.  I then attached the muslin and diecut as shown.
I cut two of the “Classic Vine” die, using one to frame my photo, with the second one layered underneath. This is where I got a bit tricky.  I mixed some “Merry Go Round Green” embossing powder with “Morning Glory Azure” and embossed the top diecut.
Then I wanted a slight contrast and to make it darker for depth, so I added a little “Queen Sheba Silver” embossing powder to my custom mix and heat embossed the second diecut.
(You can see the colour difference in the photo below.)
And just for a little extra inspiration, here are a few more tags I created using the March Challenge colours.
Happy scrapping,

  1. This is fabulous Tina! The whole canvas idea is wonderful – it will look amazing when it’s finished!

  2. Tina your tags are fabulous. The colors you used make them look “fresh” ….. Almost spring-like… I adore the way you added die cuts and the colored lace is awesome too. I need to see which dies you used and might feel tempted to add them to my stash….lol
    Thanks a lot for sharing. Both the lovely result but also the step-by-step tutorial. Great with an explanation on your custom embossing on the photo frame.
    Sending hugs Monica…. Spain
