VIDEO | MFT Birthday Balloon Tags

Hello there, I am over on the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel today sharing two tags created using the same products but with different looks. I thought it would be fun to experiment with applying Distress Spray Stains in different ways - spraying and ink smooshing. 

I started off my tags by die cutting the MFT Trendy Tag Die-namics four times. Twice from Distress Watercolor Cardstock (for the front) and twice from MFT Smooth White Cardstock (for the back). I took the balloon image from the MFT Balloon Bouquet Stamp Set and stamped it on to the tags using Versamark Ink. I applied detail white embossing powder and heat set. 

For the first tag, I sprayed the Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains directly from the bottles. I used Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire. I added some water and then let it sit to dry. Once dry (I did speed it up a little with a heat tool), I splattered on some water, let it sit for about 30 seconds and then picked it up with a paper towel. This created some more interest to the tag. 

For the second tag, I used the same sprays but this time, I sprayed them on to a craft sheet and then pounced or smooshed the tag into the ink. This creates a completely different look. I did this with all of the colours and again added some water droplets at the end. I then left both tags to dry completely. 

I took the sentiment from the MFT Itty Bitty Basics Stamp Set and stamped it on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied detail white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut the sentiments in to strips using the MFT Itty Bitty Strips Die-namics

I adhered the the white cardstock tags to the back of the inked ones using tape runner and MFT On-Point Precision Glue. The sentiments were added on top with foam tape. I tied twine through the top of the tags and then embellished with Lucy's Raindrops. 


Here is the video showing how I made the tags:

I love creating tags! I do often keep them as tags but I do also end up adding them to cards too. I love that I can do both and get more use from them! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. They both look so pretty! The colours you chose go so well together. I absolutely love the smooshed tag as I love the more random look you get with that technique, but the blended does look so pretty too with the balloons more visible. Great video! Xx
