52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2024 - Week 23

The Crafting Niche 52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge 2024:

This is a weekly challenge. I provide you with a prompt/theme each Sunday morning through out the year.  The challenge is very relaxed.  You can do as much or as little as you like.  You can create cards, tags, Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) or index cards, the choice is yours. You just go with what ever is in your head at the time.  You can stamp, get inky, use patterned papers, texture, embellish it is all down to you.

There is a dedicated private Facebook Group, with a lovely bunch of people who are already sharing their makes from previous challenges.  You can find the group by clicking this link.  I'd love you to join in.

The prompt for Week 23 is "Weddings"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 23, I started with a piece of white card, cut into a tag shape.

Using "Finger Dabbers" and three shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac.  I added lots of dots across the surface of the white card.  Some over lapped, in places I left some white space.

I then cut a strip of Vellum, wider and longer than the tag by about an inch each way.  Along the bottom of the narrow edge, I used a punch to create a scalloped edge to the vellum.

Then, using a stamping platform, with Wow! Clear Embossing Ink, I stamped the image of the bride on to the vellum, using a Stampin' Up stamp set, called "Wonderful Moments".  I coated the stamped image with Wow! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder and then heat set using a low heat setting in case the heat distorted the vellum.

I added a strip of double sided sticky tape to the top of the back of the tag and folded the top of the vellum from the front over to the back, so that the sticky tape held it into position.  I then mounted the tag on to a piece of lilac coloured card.

Next, I stamped the sentiment, using the same Wow! ink and embossing powder as I used earlier, with a Penny Black sentiment saying "Love is all around".  The sentiment is part of their set called "Only You 30-666", I then heat set the stamped sentiment.

Returning to the vellum, the decorative edge, kept lifting, so I added a touch of glue to keep it in place.  I then added a handful of sticky backed pearl gems across the surface of the tag.


  1. Stunning and vellum can be tricky to keep down.. looks awesome xx

  2. What a really prettily coloured tag and the white embossed image of the bride is really beautiful especially on the vellum with a lovely scalloped edge, and the white embossed sentiment, and the added little pearls all over it finish it perfectly Sam. x
