OCL Challenge 57 – Embossing

Wow! Look at me – playing along with a challenge!!  OCL Challenge #57.

Oh the things one can do with a clean stamp table! ; ) 


The Challenge: Clean & Simple – Embossing


Not sure that it is Clean or even Simple, but it is Embossed – so we’re lookin good!!  Ok, so definitely not so much on the clean side, but  it actually really was simple to do!! 

First I sponge-grunged up a Manila Craft Tag #8 with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.  I used embossing ink and Black Ranger Embossing Powder along with stamp sets Dandy Days and Life Is from Our Craft Lounge.  

Obviously I’ve fallen onto the dyed seam binding crinkle ribbon bandwagon – What??   A cute ribbon that I can dye to match my project and it’s totally affordable??? WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL OF MY STAMPING LIFE? (I also used the same inks  as above to dye the ribbon – and Black Soot Distress Ink, of course, to get the black ribbon – I LOVE love that it dyes it TRUE black, not greenish or purplish, but BLACK BLACK!!).

I am also falling in love with these tags… but I must ask, What does one do with these tags??

Now go emboss yourself something!! : )

I'm loving your tags!! What would one do with tags? I've used a binding machine if I'm telling about an experience ie vacation, have a poem I stamping with a couple of pages (of course you want to bind the end without the ribbons/hole). I've also attached a piece of magnetic tape on the back so someone could put of their fridge or at work on a file cabinet. For work if someone did not have a file cabinet, most have cubicals with fabric cover and then I used circle velcro (loop side) direct on to the fabric, plain wall? use circle velcro (both pieces have sticky). I've found they are almost better to send/give to someone than a card because the cards keep falling over, etc. Hope this helps with some giving ideas.
