Art from the Heart tags

I saw the cool embossing technique Danielle was sharing for Make It Monday and decided I had to play along this week! I thought the gold gilded edges had a painterly look to it, so I randomly added it to the edges of this tag to look like an artist in the process of painting.


This could be a tag you add to a handmade item or art project or even a kid's project given as a gift.


I made the tags in a couple of different sizes. The tags are from the Tremendous Tags die set by PTI. The sentiment is from Friendship Jar Fillers stamp set.


Heat embossing is one of my favorites and doing this technique, reminds me a little of the sprinkle embossing I did on this card here. I really like the look and can't wait to try it again.

I also made some using PTI kraft paper and Chai inked edges.


I've been making a bunch of crafts lately for craft shows and also just started displaying and selling my work at a new handmade store in the mall called Unique Designs, which I'm really excited about! It was fun incorporating this technique into the designs.

Thanks for stopping by today! Today was actually cooler and in the 70s here in Florida. It's an autumn miracle! ;) Hope you've had a pleasant day wherever you are! :)
