Here's my Autumn Leaves inspired lil' makes:
I used the new Lawn Fawn THANKS A LATTE set and Tim Holtz Funky Florals #3 Die Set for both tags- I just used them differently. ;o)
First, I used the smaller Mug from the set and stamped it onto Prima Vintage Emporium paper and fussy cut as I don't have the coordinating dies- I then inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. I then die cut florals and leaves from the Funky floral sets in oranges, reds and browns. I cut a slit inside my mug lip to create my Autumn Bouquet.
I then used the stamp from the set for the insde of the mug upside down to create my shadow using Archival Ink in Potting Soil. The sentiment "You matter to me" is from Concord and 9th's Hugs set, also in Coffee Ink. The "LOVE YA" is from the Thanks a Latte Set in Carnation Red Archival Ink. I used Bazzil Cardstock with some Fired Brick Distress Oxide for my tag base. A little white Dylusions Paint Pen to add highlights finished off my tag with some crinkle ribbon.
For the second tag, I used the same Bazzil Cardstock for my base, but this time, covered the larger tag with the same Vintage Emporium Paper from Prima. I stamped the second mug from the set using the same steps as above but added the Coffee Swirl Stamp inside my mug. I then stamped the Leaf from the set and fussy cut it out and adhered it to my mug to cover the heart so it would tie into the Autumn theme.
I added the leaves from the Funky Florals #3 set behind my mug and adhered the mug to my tag with 3D foam Tape. I then added Tonic Crystal Glaze to my Mug to create added dimension and it looks like liquid. ;o) My sentiment is a combo of the "FALL" from the set and "Happy" using the TH Shadow Scripts #2 set. A little wood button from my stash finished off my tag.
I sure hope you had fun, and I've inspired you to use your stamp sets differently. Now you are onto Karen's Blog for her fantastic make.
