52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2024 - Week 24

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 24 is "Die Cuts"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 24, I started with a cream coloured tag, covering it with scraps and off-cuts of gel plate printing and inked book page projects that I had kept - just in case I could use them!

I used Range Archival Ink in the "Red Geranium" shade of ink to stamp the Funky Fossil Designs "Bubble Wrap stamp" in the bottom left and top right of the tag.  I then went around some of the circles using a black fine liner pen.

I used white Gesso through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Horizontal String Layering Stencil - THS103" in various areas of the tag, then set aside to dry.

While the Gesso was drying, I cracked on with die cutting, using three Memory Box dies:

  • "Honeycomb Background 99434" with dark blue card
  • "Leafy Border 98628" with white card
  • "Chloe Stem 98321" with white card
I then stuck the die cuts in to position using wet glue.

Finally, I mounted the tag on to a piece of dark red card and added some touches of gold glitter gel pen to areas of the white die cuts.


  1. What a fabulous tag Sam packed with lots of different scraps and then added stamping and white gesso using the string layering stencil which looks great, and the three different die cuts..I love the dark blue honeycomb which contrasts beautifully with the white Leafy Border and Chloe Stem. x
