TAG-stravaganza! With Blockheads Stamps

Hi Everyone,
It's a TAG-stravaganza today!  (I made up that word and it means lots of tags.  LOL )  I made three tags using a new Blockheads Paper Arts stamp set called Household-Sewing.    This is what the whole set looks like.

For my tags, I used the three different scissor images.   I had some pre-cut tags in my stash and just started stamping.

Versamark Pad
Galaxy Gold Pigment Ink- Brilliance
Ranger Distress Inks: Tattered Roses, Vintage Photo, Milled Lavender, Faded Jeans
Ranger Distress Stains: Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo
Pre-Cut Tags or Make your own
Embossing Powder from Ranger: Gold Superfine, Clear Superfine
Ribbon, lace, gems, and pearls

TAG #1

Images were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Superfine Powder.  I distressed the whole tag with Milled Lavender.  The edges were distressed with Faded Jeans Distress ink.   I added some lace pieces, an aqua ribbon, and various sized pearls.  Here is a close up.  I love the lavender and blue together, it is so dreamy!

TAG #2

Images were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Superfine Powder.  I distressed the whole tag with Tattered Roses and the edges with Vintage Photo distress inks.  Here is your close up.

I added pink lace, a brown satin ribbon, and pearls.  The sentiment is from the  Flowers-Daisies Stamp set.

TAG #3

The scissors were stamped with Galaxy Gold Pigment ink and heat embossed with Clear Superfine Powder.  I used the new Distress Stains to color this tag-Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo.  The stains come in a bottle with a sponge top.  The stain is applied with the sponge top onto the paper.  I used the Vintage Photo on the edges.  The stains are very wet and require drying time.  You could use a heat gun, but I did not what to re-heat my embossed images.  So, I let this tag air dry.   I added green polka dot ribbon, black lace, and black gems for accents.  Close up:

I hope you have enjoyed today's TAG-stravaganza!  There is still plenty of time to enter the Blockheads Faux Fabric Technique Challenge on our Facebook Page.  It runs until August 21.  

You have a great day, now.  Take some time to stamp a little something.  Love ya.
