Spring Butterfly Tag

Hi everyone and happy Monday! I want to share a springy tag I created for ClearSnap!

I started by inking a glass tray with Hydrangea Blends Ink, adding water and placing the Tag in the ink mixture. The tag didn’t have to be completely covered so I removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray and inked with Frog Blends Ink, added a small amount of water to ink and randomly lay parts of the tag in mixture, removed and let dry. Next I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Glacier Lake Archival Dye Ink and roll over tag.

I placed the Tear Drop Circle Diecut on top of a piece of Textured White Cardstock and  placed between two cutting plates and ran through the Diecut Machine. I placed the first Butterfly Art Screen on top of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Citronella Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over the screen and removed.

I placed the second Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of butterfly, ink art dauber with Shamrock Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen and removed.

I placed the third Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of the butterfly, inked an art dauber with Moonstone Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen.  

Once I removed the screen I inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the edges of diecut. I added pop dots to the back of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and place on top of tag. With a paper cutter I cut a piece of patterned cardstock 1 7/8″x4 1/4: and cut a “v” in the end which creates a banner. I adhered the banner to the tag.

I cut from textured white cardstock Flowers and leaves from crinoline fabric from the Journaling Cards Flowers  and Leaves DiecutsI inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink the edges of two of the flower diecuts, shaped and adhere both flowers together. I added a button to the center of the flower. I inked an art dauber with Olive Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the crinoline fabric leaf and adhered to back of flower before adding to tag. Next I made two bows one from seaming binding and one from thread and adhered both to the corner and underneath flower.


I placed the “For Small Wonders” stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamp Set on the MISTI Stamp Tool  Ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured white cardstock. I cut the word “Small” and “Wonders” out with a paper cutter. Cut a “v” in the end of each to create a banner and adhered both to the bottom of stenciled butterfly and under the flower. I cut three 8 inch pieces of ribbon and lace and threaded all pieces through the top of tag. Tie off and adhere a button to ribbon and lace. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
