Pink Persimmon + Lisa Pace = great stamps!

 

 Pink Persimmon is a stamp company that is locally owned, and they are such great ladies! When they asked if I’d like to try out some of their new Lisa Pace designs I said of course! So today I want to share with you a tag technique I’ve been using a lot this holiday season – and you can see the tags I’ve made with the perfumery set.

First use distress stain (a light color) all over a manila tag. Then stamp text image with SAME COLOR of distress, but the ink pad (not stain). It is faint, but there is a slight color difference that gives you a great watermark-like effect.

Then stamp in a darker color the bottle image, stamp the entire tag with versamark ink, coat in embossing powder, and heat until the powder is set into a glossy finish. (and that’s it!)

Aren’t they lovely? My plan is to use these on some packages for the holidays – just adding a monogram sticker or something simple, and a note on the back perhaps. I jus adore these bottle stamps. So fancy and the coordinating text stamp is going to be used a lot around here as well I’m sure…

 I just love this process for making quick, sturdy, fabulous tags that could act as page embellishments, adorn gifts, or even be for a card. What’s even more fun? I’m going to give a set of Pink Persimmon stamps away!

Aren’t they so vintage chic? I love them – but I’m going to share that love and give this set (shown above) away to one of you darling blog readers! Just leave a comment here, winner will be drawn around the 21st…

Happy Crafting!!

    THese stamps would be so perfect for your upcoming class! Wish I had been learning these techniques for making tags earlier as they would be perfect for some little gifts I’m making. I’ll just have to use them next year! Thanks so much for sharing! Have a wonderful christmas.

    These stamps are so cool vintage. The technique is perfect, and I shall be trying it out this weekend. I do not remember ever seeing this technique before. Thank you for sharing.

        Yea! If I do not do the technique within the week as planned, I may forget about it. It will be awesome to have a reminder.
        Just curious – are you finished with your holiday shopping? I cannot believe that I have more to purchase, but then I do have 9 grandchildren (we added a dgs last week). I am off to buy some crafty stocking stuffers for the 3, 4, 6 and 8 year old girls. Also might purchase some water color art journal supplies for my talented 20 year old dgd. It is so much fun to have grandchildren who love art and crafting. Have a fun weekend.

    Lisa Pace rocks!
    I am more clean and simple girl but those tag turned out awesome! Makes me want to dig out my embossing powder. Don’t include me in the giveaway, just wanted to say “hi” :)

    They are beautiful tags, I love that they are simple to make, but the end result is so gorgeous. I’ve added Lisa’s stamps to my stamping wishlist. I’m glad Lisa retweeted your tweet otherwise I might have missed this post.

    Ooooh, aren’t those nifty?! And I totally dig your technique, May. If I ever have time to paper-craft again, I’ll have to give that a try!

    Your tags are gorgeous! Those stamps are to die for!! Going to have to google them & see if I can hunt some down! :)

    I like the difference of the stain vs the stamp pad of the same color on your tags! I would have thought you wouldn’t be able to see it in the same color & would have never tried! Now I will. :) It really gives a nice effect. Thank you for your continued wonderful tips!

    Your tags are divine! What a great technique you’ve shared-I never thought to clear emboss an entire tag; can’t wait to try it out. I’m loving this new line of stamps by Lisa-they’re lovely! Don’t have any of them yet, but maybe I will be a lucky winner here. Thanks so much!
