Grape Tag Tutorial

I made this tag a while ago but never shared it on my blog so I thought I would do so today!

I made this tag using Jumbo Grapes by Stampendous.


If you haven't purchased any of the Jumbo Stamps from Stampendous yet you may not be aware that all of the newer ones come with a plastic stencil/mask that coordinates with the stamps.
This is the one that came with the
Jumbo Grapes.

Before punching the pieces out, I recommend labeling them with a sharpie.  It makes it quicker to figure out which way they go when you are working with them AND it makes it much easier to find them when they are laying on your workspace or have fallen on the floor!

Use Brush Stix to apply lulu lavender, grape, and pear tart ink on tag.

Love this tag. The new way of providing masking templates with the stamps is so wonderful. I really like using them. Love your tag and its complexity.
