Project: Anything but a card for MAWTT

Hello and happy almost Christmas! This week at Moving Along with the Times we have an 'Anything but a Card' challenge for you. Luckily this time of year everyone giving gifts needs gift tags so this was a great opportunity for me to make a fun set.

I started with a fun deer stamp that I haven't used much despite having it for some time. I heat embossed it in black and white directly on a tag. I then blended the background using a mix of Distress Inks and Distress Oxides. I took two large background stamps, one that has a random sort of smooshed-texture and the other that is a moroccan tile pattern and used Distress Inks sprayed with water to get irregular prints. I added some paint flicks for good measure.

I tried a different image but it was a bit too busy given the complicated background, so I stuck to the deer for the rest of the mini set. I really liked having a messy play, it's always fun to get away from cards and mix it up a bit. Can't wait to see what projects you come up with!


  1. Super set of tags Jessie, thank you.
    Merry Christmas, xxxx

  2. I love these, especially the 1st and 4th ones. Great technique playtime, tags are so good for that. I am hopeful to see one of these beauties on my 'possible' gifts ;) Merry Christmas man. Cx
