samples, samples, & more samples Part 4

...coming to the last of the tag samples.. more flowers which is good - if the weather report is to be believed we're in for some nice sunny days this weekend (fingers crossed! lol) (I'll still be packing my brolly though)
Left tag:
This is colour using mainly Distress ink, the flowers are stamped and cut from misc' papers (scrapbooking, book text etc)... the panel running up the left side of the tag is stamped with Mini12 - lovely to use as a backbround stamp or use the individual flowers:
The words are taken from JOFY11 - stamp them and cut them out - easy way to add a phrase - these have been 3d mounted to create dimension/layers on the card (as have some of the flowers...):
Centre Tag:
The colours on this tag are sooo juicy! the peachy pinks (created with the help of Blood Orange Fresco Finish paint) (love)... its also a version of one of my favourite colour schemes - pink&green... also a slightly different treatment used on the ball stems... are they pussywillows or are they seed heads??? I don't know - use them as you want.. that's how I designed the stamps - so you could interpret them however you want...   On the this tag I've coloured them to look like berries...
The 'summer' tag is created with MINI15... here it has been used as a stamped on to kraft card, cut out and attached to the tag..
Right tag:
This tag is in a completely different style (I think) - very simple - the images are stamped onto paper (Prima) featuring ledger paper.  The leaves have been coloured/painted with Distress Stains to create a watercolour effect.  The flower was created with leave images stamped onto a dull red paper - I painted over that with London Bus - this worked really well because it brightened up the red and because it's a translucent colour none of the stamped detail was lost.

Enjoy the weekend - fingers crossed for a sunny one! lol


  1. All the tags but like the right tag especially.

  2. They are all gorgeous, Jo, but I think - if I had to pick one - my favourite would be the 3rd one on the right. Love it!! Have a lovely sunny day, it's beautiful here!

    They are all beautiful, but if I had to choose, the tag on the right would be my favourite too. It's so dramatic, I love it.

  4. So many different looks with these stamps. Love the middle tag especially.

  5. Love all the tags, love the way you cut out and mount the flowers to create dimension, love the leaves as flowers with the gorgeous London Bus red on top.

  6. Beautiful. I reallym truly, love these stamps. Your tags are gorgoeus
