Stunning tags and card by Vivian Keh

Hello, Hampton Art fans!  Vivian Keh here with a very easy card to share.  I used the Hampton Art/ Echo Park SC0528 "Scoot" Clear Stamp Set, which is great for boy projects, but also adorable for well wishing someone onto a new chapter in life.  There are a number of great graphic sentiments in the set, too, for birthdays and congratulations - definitely a loaded set.

There is also  a dash marked line stamp in the set, which saves oodles of time when we decide to include those in our projects!  For my card, I began by spritzing a sky.

Wherever there was a clearing, I stamped a cute helicopter. Then I stamped my sentiment and dashed lines.

Thanks for visiting with me here today!

Have y'all seen too many tags from me?  I may have mentioned last month how much I adore the tag format.  This month, I played a bit more with tags, utilizing the Hampton Art/ Echo Park SC0528 "Scoot" Clear Stamp Set to create the fresh and modern Happy Birthday tag shown here.

Instead of using the dashed line stamp as a border, I used it to create vertical movement in my composition.  I also used the triangle stamp from the set for some sharp, bold interest.

In addition, I clear heat embossed circles using a woodblock stamp from Hampton Art, DF2194 Lg Circle.

I intentionally stamped imperfectly, doing a partial emboss as I just love it when mists pool in the spaces left from an imprecise impression.
1. Cut tag out of watercolor paper.
2. Stamp circles with watermark ink, sprinkle with clear embossing powder, tap off excess, and heat with heat tool.
3. Mist with your chosen combination of mists.
4. Stamp sentiment, dashed lines, and triangles.
5. String organza through the hole at the top of the tag and heat for funky twists.
