Wanderlust Tag


Hey Quietfire Fans! I was busy playing with the Butterflies/Dragonflies stamp set this past weekend. Combining the stamp set with a few other stamps and A Way With Words dies, they were the perfect for creating my Wanderlust Tag. This tag is perfect to add to a gift or give it to someone special with a note on the back. You'll want to grab a cup of your favourite summer time beverage and learn how to recreate my tag at home.

To start, you'll need a Distress Tag. Spritz Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Spray over the entire surface of the tag. Before drying, spritz the tag with a bit of water. Dry the tag with a heat tool.


With the sprays still out, spritz Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Sprays over a piece of white cardstock. Before drying, spritz the paper with water. Dry the paper with a heat tool. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Wanderlust word and stamp onto the now coloured paper. Fussy cut the word out. Ink the edges of the word using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the Grid Background stamp and stamp randomly on the tag. Reapply the ink to the stamp as needed. Apply Jet BlackArchival Ink to the Crackle Background stamp and stamp randomly on the tag. Reapply the ink to the stamp as needed. Apply Ground Espresso Distress Crayon to the edges of the tag and rub the crayon in.


Die cut the Flourished Oval Frame out of a piece of white cardstock. Apply a coat of Emboss It Ink to the frame. Sprinkle Weathered Wood embossing powder over the entire surface of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to both dragonflies and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Using a waterbrush, colour the dragonflies in with Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans Distress Ink. Fussy cut the dragonflies out. Ink the edges of the dragonflies using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the flourished oval frame to the middle left hand side of the tag. 


Shape the wings of the dragonflies. Use foam squares to adhere the dragonflies to the middle of the frame, one on top of another.


Foam square the wanderlust word to the bottom right hand side of the frame.


To finish off the tag, tie a piece of twine through the top of the tag.


Here are a few closeup photos of the finished Wanderlust Tag.
