Embossing, Trinity Stamps

Easter Tags

easter tags

Happy Spring! I can hardly believe that Easter is around the corner.  I decided to make a few Easter tags to adorn some of the Easter baskets I’m going to give to friends.

I have a large assortment of tag, large and small, white and colored.  While many companies have tag dies, I chose to use some small white tags from my collection.  I’ll admit, I’m pretty obsessed with the Winter Botanical stamp and die set.  I stamped several images in a very pale grey ink and die cut them.  I stamped the bow in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Wow sand dunes embossing powder.  I colored the other images with the copic markers G43, YG67, V22 and V25 as shown below.

I decided against putting a sentiment on the tag because I thought the simple look was elegant.  I’ll write Happy Easter on the back of the tag before I put it on an Easter basket.

Thank you for stopping by!

Catherine Pooler

Storing Catherine Pooler Mini Inks

I have difficulty using a product if I can’t physically see it from my desk- I tend to forget about it!  I wanted to figure out a better way to physically contain these adorable inks so that I would be sure to use them.  I don’t tend to swatch my inks unless I use them a lot (like distress oxides), but I do love the properties of the Catherine Pooler Inks and was impressed by how easy it was to stamp an image perfectly in one try.

I used business card protector pages- which fit the inks snuggly (they will not fall out) and then placed the swatch in the neighboring slots.  Using a binder ring to contain all the pages will allow me to keep them together easily.  Finally I made a mini swatch for each ink that might even be more helpful than the larger swatches I made and labeled each swatch with the Brother label maker.

Thanks for stopping by- I hope this was helpful!
