Summery Polished Stone Tags

Remember the bookmarks that I was having so much fun with? Well, today I've created some fun summery tags using a polished stone technique. These will be great to attach to a gift for someone's birthday or even tucked inside a book to be used as a bookmark.

I've used the new Tag #4 - Large with Layer from Creative Cuts and More, and I love the sweet curvy shape at the top of these tags. The tag is cut from black cardstock, and the layer is glossy white cardstock. I had a great time experimenting with different alcohol ink colors to make these polished stone tags for you. :-)

Do you like the polished stone tags that I've created for you? These are really easy to make. All you need are the tags (glossy white cardstock) from Creative Cuts and More, some alcohol inks, some Alcohol Blending Solution (from Ranger), and the felt applicator for the alcohol inks. Pick two or three colors of alcohol inks, and then follow the directions for the Alcohol Ink tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers.

I didn't have any ribbon that matched my tags, so I pulled out some white grosgrain ribbon and colored it myself. All I had to do was cut a small length of white ribbon and squeeze small drops of alcohol ink on the ribbon. The ink spreads out and saturates the ribbon so you really don't need much to cover a small piece.

Are you ready to get inky? Go shopping for these tags at Creative Cuts and More - just make sure to pick the glossy white cardstock so you can make your own polished stone tags. :-)
