STAMplorations~ Stencil Sunday #107

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm sharing a lil
coffee inspired tag I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #107. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  hereso be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o) 

I started with watercolor paper and die cut a tag using the Tag O'Coffee Die set. I then applied Fossilized Amber and Barn Door Distress Inks to the tag and then used Carved Pumpkin through the Christmas Trees 1 Stencil. 

I die cut the coffee mug from the same Tag O'Coffee Die set and stamped a sentiment from the Dark Coffee stamp set.  I inked the edges with some Barn  Door Distress ink so it gave it some definition from the tag and adhered it to the tag with pop dots. A little Twine bow finished off my lil' tag.

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! Oh and don't forget if you use code "STAMPGIRLAMY"  in the STAMPlorations Shop,you can get 20% off your purchase! :o)

Here's my make using the Tim Holtz Hipster Stamp Set. I just love this set, so many fun and "different" images and sentiments to create with!

I started with a tag and applied Distress Paints (Mermaid Lagoon, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen) and blended them with my finger. Once dry, I stamped some background stamping with Archival ink. I then added some die cuts from the Memory Box Distressed Addington Collage set. 

I then stamped the image and sentiments onto script paper from Michaels in blue and brown Memento Inks to go with my background and mounted them on black cardstock. I trimmed them out and glued them to my tag base. I then used Black Soot Distress Paint around the edge of the tag.  

Some crinkle seam binding and twine from my stash finished off my tag. :o)

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today and look forward to seeing your creations.
