Dry Embossing and Stamping Tag
The 3” x 6” tag was lightly sprayed with water. Tag was placed between Cuttlebug Scroll embossing folder and the embossing folder was further sandwiched between cutting pad pair. The cutting pad pair was placed on Tab 2 of the Multipurpose Platform and rolled through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine. The tag was removed from Scroll embossing folder and Spiced Marmalade Stamping Ink was applied lightly to the embossed surface of tag using Tim Holtz Ranger Foam Ink Applicator. Once all embossed surfaces were covered, Pealed Paint Ink was used around the edges of tag. Using Pumice Stone ink stamp pad, ink was applied to PinkPaislee Impressions Cupid stamp of choice. Image was stamped along the right vertical side of tag.
Creating Dahlia Flower
Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix Die was used to create Dahlia floral image. Printed paper was placed on the foam side of the die and die was sandwiched between cutting pad. The cutting pad was rolled through Sizzix big Shott. Repeat this step 3 more times to obtain a total of 4 flowers. Metallic Amethyst Folk Art paint was used to high light leaves of each Dahlia die cut. Each Dahlia die cut was impressed, face down, into embossing stamp pad and each petal of Dahlia die cut was longitudinally folded in half. The Dahlia die cut then placed into embossing powder. The heat gun was used to melt and affix embossing powder unto Dahlia die cuts. The four Dhalia floral images were placed and hot glued to each other. Seven Crystallzz pearls were hot glued to the center of the Dhalia image and synthetic leaves were hot glued to the back of Dahlia image.
Butterflies (5) were punched out on DCWV Mariposa paper using the Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch. All punched out images were impressed; face down, into embossing stamp pad. The Butterfly punched image was then placed into embossing powder and a heat gun was used to melt and affix embossing powder unto Mariposa cut outs.

Paper with stamped image placed in embossing powder tray and Tim Holtz Black Soot powder was sprinkled over paper with stamped image. Heat gun was then used to melt and affix distress powder to paper. The edges of the SEI paper were torn to 2” x 4” to complete the look.
