Today I've been playing with some floral stamps from Oak House Studio. The stamp is part of the Big Christmas collection and is proving to be one of my favourites - there is a positive and negative so great for creating different textures. All the products I've used in this tutorial are available from Oak House Studio (ribbon and gems are from my stash).
I've made a step by step tutorial if you fancy having a go at making these tags.
So here goes -
1. Gather all your ingredients.
3. Cut a piece of card which is smaller than the tag. Stamp the solid flower using the dusky pink ink pad and then the outline stamp with the sea blue. You'll notice that there are a few lighter solid flowers - I stamped these after the initial flowers had been stamped and there is usually a little bit of ink still on the stamp (no point wasting the ink right?). Add a border again using the sea blue ink pad as in the previous step.
4. Next we need to add the leaves. Here I've used the Oak House Studios acrylic inks and a nail art brush (which you can get from Poundland yep you read that right :) ) Dipping the brush lightly and making sure you don't have too much ink on the brush all you need to do is gently stroke the brush in the areas where you want grass/stems and leaves. You don't have to be too neat to do this.
5. Glue the smaller stamped card onto the tag (on this one I've glued it off center and to the right. I've added a few lines of acrylic ink along the left side of the tag using peridot and amber inks with the nail art brush.
6. I finished off the tags with some ribbon and gems which I added to the middle of the flowers.
Here are a couple of cards I made using the same flower stamp.
