Karen here, sharing some Fairy Tags that I created using stamps from the Fairy Magic Stamp Set and canister lids. Who knew that canister lids could be used in your crafty space to create fun tags?? The 3 ¼ size lids are the perfect size to play with and can be conveniently found in local stores. They provide just the right depth, dimension and base to enhance tags. I coordinated the stamps and lids with some Tim Holtz Oxide inks, charms, and dyed ribbon.
I began these fun tags with inking some watercolor paper with various oxide inks and water. I used oxide colors: broken china, fossilized amber and spiced marmalade. I loved the color combination.
I inked 2 sheets of watercolor paper. I also used the remaining loose ink to coordinate ribbon for the tags. I heat set the inked watercolor papers and continued adding inks until I was happy with the end result.
Using black ink, I stamped fairies onto the inked watercolor paper and then heat set the ink. The fairies were then cut out, edges distressed with coordinating oxide ink and set aside.
Next, I applied gesso to the canister lids and let them dry. I added oxide ink to the edges of the canister lids and dipped the tags in clear embossing powder. Then I heat set the edges- creating this fun bubbled texture on the edges.
Next, I created some circle die cuts using the inked watercolor paper, stamped a fairy and sentiment on to the circle using black ink and distressed the edges with coordinating oxide ink.
I adhered the stamped circle die cut to the inside of the canister lid.
Next, I punched a hole in the canister lids with a Cropadile, added an eyelet to each lid and added a stamped fairy to each tag with 3D tape.
Lastly, I added a ball and chain with coordinating ribbon and charms.
I loved creating these tags. Rita’s Fairy Magic Stamp Set is versatile and fun to use. The stamp images are so crisp, easy to create with and they are perfect for small or larger projects. The stamp set can be found using the link below:
