Collaged Valentine Tags




Good Afternoon Papercrafters!
Today I'm sharing a Valentine tag set.


For each of these I started with Marah Johnsons (Creative Imaginations) Bliss Paper and Bliss Swatch Book Impress Ons (rub-ons).
You can purchase yours HERE and HERE.   It was the perfect match for my Layers of Color art stamps - Renaissance Hearts, Fleur Hearts, and  Regal Wings.


On this one I stamped my Fluer heart image in VersaFine Black Ink by Tsukineko.  This is my favorite black ink pad when I'm not using my copics.  I used a rub-on "My Love" from the Creative Imaginations Swatch Book.  I picked mine up at Hobby Lobby.   I added this little vintage cut-out.  I had found a Dover Holiday Vignette Book.  Loaded with lots of vintage images for each holiday.  I found mine at a used bookstore.  Just google Holiday Vignettes dove and it will come up.  In fact if you love incorporating vintage images into your projects then you should really check out the Dover Vignette and Clip Art books.  Yes!  it was that easy!


Tag #2.
I mixed it up and added some music paper.  Adhered a my Valentine image.  I picked up the Valentine images on this one and the one below from The Shabby Cottage HERE.  I REALLY like the digital Collage sheets she sells.  Check out these Easter collage images!  Stamp on patterned paper using an image from Renaissance Hearts.  And next Christmas you will definitely see some of these Christmas collage images on my projects.  You can download and print them yourself or purchase them already printed.  She has 2 different catagories over in the left column.  One says "digital downloads"  and the other "printed", so make sure you are in the section you want.  Here is a link to the Store Front.


Next just stamp the Fluer Heart image.  Then stamp it again to create a mask.   I use Eclipse Masking tape because it has a very light sticky back, like a post-it note.  HERE is a link to the site.  You can get this from lots of online stores.  When you are masking, you just stamp your image a second time, cut it out, and lay it over the other stamped image.  This technique is used when you want to stamp an image over an image and you don't want part of the second image to obsure the first.  And lastly I used the rub-ons again along the bottom and on the image of the couple.


This one was pretty much made the same way.  I just switched the direction that I tilted everything. 


The clock is part of the rub-on booklet as well.  This little booklet is loaded with rub-ons.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll be back friday with a set of Valentine cards.
