Lavinia Stamps "Stag Tag"

I saw the Lavinia Stamps Emma Jo "Stag Tag" tutorial, it's number 8 in a series of 12, and decided to give it a go. 

I used three Elements Inks:  Blue Atoll, Red Emperor and Dark Denim for the background colour with the Lavinia Stamps "Stag" sticker, which is in the Sticker Stencil pack 4 set.

I used a Wow! Clear embossing ink pad and the Wow Super fine "Metallic Silver" embossing powder and heat set using the Lavinia Stamps "Winter Magic" stamp.

I added splatters to the background using a fan brush and water.  I also added dots of silver glitter pen around the stag, in the background and also edged the tag in silver too.

Finally, I used a white gel pen and "Ruby Red" Liquid Pearls to create hanging baubles from the antlers.


  1. Beautifully done Sam,a gorgeous icy background and wonderful stamped image

  2. Stunning thanks for using Emma Jo's video, she is in my group and promoting her is appreciated xx

  3. I watched Emma's video and I think you have made a brilliant job Sam and I particularly love your blue, and you have the baubles hanging down where unfortunately some of hers were hanging uphill, sorry sounds a bit critical but I understand she was under time constraints on the video and these things happen. I also love the silver embossing which is so crisp, and some great shading on Rudolph, and love the bright red nose. x

    1. Hi Pat, I know what you mean about the "uphill" comment. I think Emma-Jo maybe should have done the hangers first and then add the baubles to them. That's the way I did mine. That way you can choose your spacing better, but like you say for her there were time constraints, where as I was able to take my time. x
