Sally CT - Tag inkable samples

  Hi There! Did you see Bev on the Craft Store last week with the new tag inkables?  They are sooooo cool! I have loved playing with them and still have them out on my desk! Here are the samples I made.  First up is a card where I used them to emboss through using speckled egg embossing glaze.

Next I used them to add distress oxide ink to a smooshed background...
And here I used them to add texture paste then dry brushed dylusions shimmer paint over them and the pop out mdf elements. 

 I also used them to add texture paste once more to an mdf arch plaque.
For the cover of this notebook I used them over a gelli print. 
As well as the samples above I made a bag using calico.  I painted the fabric with gesso and Dylusions paint, stencilling and stamping it with the products that were on the show. 

I also used gelli print papers to create this mini book featuring the Dragonfly stamps

Alison CT - Mdf tag with Butterfly Popout

Hi I thought I would share how I made one of my samples for the inkable tags showStart by creating a background paper. Apply the Dylusion paint to the paper, brushing in both vertical and horizontal lines.

Using the distress oxides stamp several of the different butterflies from the stamp sets. Rip four strips from this paper and ink the edges with hickory smoke distress oxide.

Using one of the tag inkables from set 1 and peacock feathers distress oxide completely cover the mdf tag with the pattern.

Using twisted citron and a second inkable tag from set 1, add more detail to two opposite corners of the tag.

Using hickory smoke distress oxide stamp your chosen sentiment several times over the mdf tag, this will add more texture to the background.

Add the four strips of your backing paper to the right hand side of the tag. I used pva glue to stick it to the tag, as collage medium would react with the distress oxides.

Add more detail to the background using the coffee stain stamps and peacock feathers distress oxide.

Paint the silhouette butterfly popout with the green paint and the intricuts part with the blue paint.

Stamp two of the same butterfly from the stamp set using versafine clair warm breeze and colour using twisted citron distress oxide with a waterbrush. Then die cut out.

Add the popout and stamped butterflies to the tag. Stamp the same sentiment that you used on the background using versafine clair morning mist. Cut out and glue to the tag.

Products used:
Mdf tag
Wordage: Ticker tape 1
Dylusions paint: Island Parrot and Calypso Teal
Versafine Claire: Warm Breeze and Morning Mist
Distress Oxide: Twisted Citron, Hickory Smoke, Peacock Feathers
Popouts: Silhouettes and Intricates butterflies

Sue CT - Birds and Butterflies


Sue CT Birds and Butterflies

We have had some very cold days here recently so this week, I decided to make a page that will hopefully be a sign of warmer days to come in the not too distant future. 

What I have Used


I started off by blending the Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks across the page to give the impression of a rainbow.


I then went across the page using the circle Dinkable from set 3 and matching inks to add some texture to the page.


I added some coffee stain stamps and the number stamps from the same set in random places using the matching inks. 

 This was followed by using the number and letter stencil from set 5 and Hickory Smoke ink to add some contrast, and also some of the small circles from set 2.

On a sheet of white card, I stamped a whole flutter of butterflies from the regular Birds and Butterflies stamp. I knew I had way too many, but I always do a few spare when I stamp as they are very useful to keep ready for another project.

I coloured these in various rainbow colours to match the background using Ecoline pens, then cut them out using the corresponding dies which made the job a lot easier and didn’t take long at all.


I also stamped the large bird from the Birds and Butterflies XL set and cut him out using the die. I decided that I was going to sit him on a branch from the Beautanical Large Branch stamp so cut the branch he was currently sitting on off at the edges, as you can see in the photo. I decided to leave this image uncoloured so it stood out against the coloured background.


Finally, I stamped the branch on the side of the page and arranged all of the butterflies on the page. I added a couple of the coffee stain stamps in Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to add some extra depth to the page and went around the edge of the page to add a frame. I also stamped the words from the Ticker Tape 1 set and cut them apart to fit on the page. The final step was to adhere everything to the page with gel medium.


Thank you for looking at the blog today, have a great day.

Tag Inkables Samples by DT Ann

Tag Inkables - Birds & Butterflies 

By DT Ann 

A brief description of each sample… 

Used a die to cut a tag from Gelli print background, stencilled over using the numbers from Inkabkes Tags set 1 . Using Dinkables set 6 with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to create the lines seen. The Butterflies were stamped & also die cut from the Gelli print. Add some torn washi tape & a sentiment from Small Words stamp set. 

Six tags were cut from bubble wrap print. Then cut a piece of card into an oblong & scored at intervals to create a book. Added Distress ink through a couple of the new Tag Inkables & some dots from Dinkables set 2.  
Stamped coffee stains (numbers are from this set) & butterflies in Versafine Clair Nocturne. Washi tape added & some ribbon ties. 

Glued all Popouts to birdcage then painted in white gesso. Used various colours of acrylic paint to achieve a rusty look. Coloured the flowers with Ecoline Brush Pens & Gelly Roll Pens 
Stamped & die cut the XL bird & again coloured with Ecolines

Spritzed cling film with Distress Oxide Spray took a print & cut into 5” square piece. Used a Texture Disc for the centre & inked from the outer edge, to form a “halo”. Stamped & die cut  the dragonfly & word from the set

This is an art board piece.. I covered it in the Bee Crafty Papers. Then spread Texture Paste through a texture disc. When dry I added some stamping and dots using Posca pens… finishing with the die cut Dragonfly (coloured with Ecolines) & word. 

Here’s another I made … 

Thank you for stopping by… Ann xxx

Caroline - Journey

This mixed media tag was created using the brand new TODAY Art Stamps Butterflies & Birds XL!!

Die cut three solid black butterflies, three butterflies in white and three on patterned paper. 

The white and coloured butterflies were heat embossed and then layered – black on the bottom, white and then the colour.

Create the mixed media collaged background.

I used Distress Crayons to create the background colours on the tag, together with coordinating scraps of paper.

Using a stencil and texture paste add to the tag creating dimension.

I used a D’Inkable stencil from set one, the hearts, and added to the stencil with Distress Oxide.  Added black ink and the sentiment, and some black hearts.

Back the tag onto some black card to create a frame around the tag.

Add the layered butterflies and a pearl in each centre. Finish off with ribbon.
