12 Tags Of Christmas Day 5 Alternatives And Suggestions


I have decided for todays 12 Tags Of Christmas post instead of listing all the supplies and giving you alternatives I would instead write a short blog post with my suggestions for copying the look and style of todays tag.

Realistically speaking I couldnt justify buying a rubber stamp just so I could do reverse wordings on the back of acetate or acrylic shapes, seems like a waste of cash especially when you can emulate the same look on card stock.

Theres a couple of ways to do it –

1. One way would be to take a sheet of glossy card and swipe all over it with Red Pepper Alcohol ink, once the ink was dry you can then stamp over the top using a white Stazon inkpad or emboss it with white embossing powder.

2. Another option would be to emboss the word stamp with clear embossing ink onto white card stock, then using either a brayer or sponges take a red ink pad – could be dye or pigment based and swipe over the top of the stamped wording to create a resist effect.

3. The easiest option of them all would be to take a sheet of red card stock and either stamp with a white inkpad or emboss it with white embossing powder.

If you really wanted to stamp onto acetate you could always use theCAUGHT IN CRYSTAL TECHNIQUE – where you stamp onto tissue paper first using a permanent inkpad and then adhere the tissue to the back of the acetate (words the right way round) using floor wax or diamond glaze. The wax would them protect the ink of the stamped image and therefore allow you to apply alcohol inks.
