Destiny Mixed Media Tag


Hey Quietfire Fans! I'm thrilled to be joining the design team and sharing with you my love for mixed media by combining all of the wonderful stamps and dies Quietfire has to offer. Today, I get to share with you my "Destiny" tag which features a variety of Quietfire Stamps and A Way With Words Dies. Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and I hope that you enjoy learning how to recreate my "Destiny" tag at home. 


1. Rip out a piece of dictionary paper from a dictionary. Grab a tag and trace the tag around the dictionary paper. Cut the tag out. Use Distress Collage - Matte Medium to adhere the dictionary paper tag to the tag. Paint a coat of White Gesso overtop of the dictionary paper.


2. Place the Faded Dots stencil in the bottom portion of the tag. Using a palette knife, apply texture paste through the stencil. Repeat the previous step, but this time, place the stencil in the top left portion of the tag.


3. Apply one coat of Blush Paint to the tag. Use a baby wipe to apply Vintage Lace and Snowflake paint randomly to the tag. Once the paint has dried, rub Spun Sugar and Walnut Stain Distress Crayon overtop of the stenciled areas.


4. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the Crackle Background Stamp and randomly stamp it on the tag. Clean Stamp. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Crackle Background stamp and randomly stamp it on the tag. Rub Black Soot Distress Crayon along the edges of the tag. To soften the black edges, ink the edges of tag using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


5. Die cut a 2 1/4" Fitted Oval out of white cardstock. Ink the edges of the oval using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


6. Die cut the Flourished Oval Frame out of white cardstock. Apply a coat of Emboss It Ink to the frame. Sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder overtop of the frame. Tap off excess powder and emboss with your heat tool.


7. From the Butterfly Flourish die, die cut the small and medium sized butterflies out of white cardstock. Use a blending tool with foam to blend Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink overtop of the butterflies. Spritz the butterflies with water. Once the butterflies are dry, ink the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


8. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the "Destiny is not a Matter of Chance" stamp. Stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Cut the sentiment apart. Use a blending tool with foam to blend Vintage Photo Distress Ink overtop of each of the strips. Ink the edges of the strips using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


9. Adhere the fitted oval to the middle of the tag. Adhere the flourished oval frame overtop of the fitted oval. Foam square the medium sized butterfly in the bottom right corner of the frame. Foam square the small butterfly in the top left corner of the frame. Foam square the sentiment strips to the middle of the frame.


10. To finish off the tag, punch a hole at the top and make a bow out of light pink ribbon. 

Here are a couple of close up's of the tag.
