"Quote Unquote"

I did this How-To for the Ranger Yahoo group and thought I'd share it here too.

Tag Quote Book

using Resist Techniques



Supplies
5 large shipping tags
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads(Vintage Photo, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye, Old Linen, Fired Brick, Tattered Rose)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Reinker (Walnut Stain)
Emboss It embossing pad
Clear embossing powder
Stippling brush
Cut and Dry foam
Assortment of quote, image and background stamps.
Found items for stamping e.g. corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap
Spritz bottle filled with water
Ranger non-stick Craft Mat
Embossing heat gun

Instructions:

Select the quotes and accompanying images for each tag. Stamp each tag randomly with the image of your choice using embossing pad, and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.




Technique 1: Stippling

Tap stippling brush into Weathered Wood pad, and apply with a tapping motion to tag.














Once complete, ink background stamp with Tea Dye and stamp randomly over tag. Using a soft cloth rub ink off of the embossed portions.



Finish tag with quote stamp, and other embellishments.

Technique 2: Direct to Paper

Use the Mustard Seed pad to apply ink directly to embossed tag. You can vary the effect by tapping lightly or pressing firmly.















It should look like this once done















Ink background stamp with Vintage Photo and stamp randomly over tag













Finish tag with quote stamp, and other embellishments.

Technique 3: Sponging with Cut n Dry Foam

Cut a small piece of Cut n Dry Foam, tap into Tattered Rose ink pad and sponge ink onto embossed tag


























using a piece of mesh as a stencil, sponge Fired Brick randomly onto tag, again using the Cut n Dry Foam














Finish tag with quote stamp, and other embellishments.

Technique 4: Monoprinting

On your Ranger non-stick sheet, press the Peeling Paint pad several times.













Using the spritz bottle mist ink with water















Press tag into wet ink, swirl slightly and lift up.













Once dry (you can wait, or cheat like me and zap it quickly with your heat gun), repeat with Fired brick pad. Use found items like bubble wrap and corrugated cardboard to stamp on tag with Vintage Photo and Mustard Seed pads.













Finish tag with quote stamp, and other embellishments.

Technique 5: Brayer Resist

Using the dropper from the Walnut Ink re-inker, squiggle a line of ink down the short side of tag.













use brayer to spread the ink over entire tag.












Finish tag with quote stamp, and other embellishments.

To assemble book:

Use a shipping tag as a template to cut two covers from raw chipboard. Decorate front with varied stamp designs (the ones I used are by Club Scrap). Use letter and quote stickers to make title "Quote unquote" (Making Memories and Chatterbox). Reinforce holes with 7 Gypsies canvas reinforcements. Use a binder ring to assemble book. Tie strips of ribbon, ric rac or fiber onto ring.

I love this--it's a great idea to just have in your workspace, to keep track of your quote stamps--and the matching stamps in the set--and you can add to it as you get new stamps--oooh, the ideas are coming, now! How cool, TFS!
