Hello Deerie Tag.

Evening crafty peeps -

Here is a quick post of a delightfully red tag that I made the other night. It features images from Critters in the Snow (Lawn Fawn) and CMS106 – Papillon (Stamper’s Anonymous) stamp sets. Pairing cute with shabby elegant? Sure, why not?!


The main image is a deer from the Critters in the Snow stamp set that I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. After trimming I attached the deer to a panel cut out using the Circles & Labels, Stitched die set from Sizzix.


For embellishment I pulled some neglected items from my stash – tissue tape and remnant rubons. I also added a few black gems here and there.


I created the background using Gelatos applied directly to the large stamp image from CMS101 – Papillon, spritzed with water and then stamped on the tag. After heat setting, I sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, stamped a snowflake in Red Geranium Archival Ink, and the sentiment in Jet Black Archival Ink.


Let me know what you think. I’m always happy to read your comments.

Answering some emails I’ve received recently:

Number One: I’ve had a few inquiries asking if I would be selling any of my There She Goes stamps. Sorry - I don’t have any plans at this time to do so. I’m a bit attached to them.

Number Two: Every once in a while I get a question on coloring with Copic markers. I have not written any tutorials myself but if there is interest I could do a few posts on how I color. Give me a heads up if that is something you would be interested in.

Have a good night!
