Thanks for popping in! Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Happy Memorial Day in America! Happy last day of May Monday!
Yep. This year is certainly flying by! June tomorrow! What?!? But today is Monday, and in Clarity World, it’s the day we launch our Offer of the Week!
Love these Tag dies! From Mixed Media to fabric work, from Card-making and papercraft to running your own arty business, these tags and plaques are perfect. And at half price plus your Clarity Craft Club Discounts, they are a very worthy investment.
Personally I find tags ideal when I am looking to make an arty card. The tags provide me with a great and simple starting place, and allow for lovely layering with movement too.
If you watched the TV show on Friday at 3pm on the Craft Store, you will have seen me pulling Gelpress Prints with our new panel stencils.
Now these are BRILLIANT for use with the tags. ALL the Tag shapes work like a charm actually, and the stencil panels are the perfect fit for the dies too.
Here‘s a quick step by step I rustled up, using the Stencil prints and one of the new Lino Cut stamps. First decisions: which Tag shape? Which Size tag die? Where on the art print?
There’s so much more on the print to use! And then there’s the tiny tag for the message too.

Another print, same colours, more of the stencil panel, brilliant for the backdrop.
Time to tie it all in. Another print which is very light for the background would be good. There are always prints which don’t work as well as you might like. They are perfect for the matching background. Look!
Now I”m not a blingy kinda gal, but sometimes it looks pretty arty when there’s a flash of glitter. Now where did I put those large Pergamano diamante brads. Ideal! I know I know. The automatic reflex is to go for twine or grunge. But actually, why? This looks cool.
By attaching the tags to the grungy background with the brad, the card itself will not end up with a brad poking though.
The new Sticker Stamp work so well too. Use Archival (permanent ink) when stamping on acrylic paint.
Done. Simple. Arty. Making good use of Gelpress prints.
I think it’s important to see a link, a connection, between all the different products we present you with. Here for example, the tags are superb for chopping up those arty Gelpress prints – even the ropey ones. Now there are those who would say that there is no such thing as ropey prints. I would say that even the ropey ones have a place, a home in my stash!!
Half price plus club discounts. Dive in. CLICK HERE. Offer of the week lasts till next Monday.
Enjoy the sunshine !
