Sugarplum Monoprint Tag Set - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm sharing a Christmas themed tag and envelope set that I created with some monoprints I made with the new Sugarplum Ball Embossing Folder, a Gelli Plate and Block Printing Ink for Couture Creations today.


Step One: Gather a Gelli Plate, several colors of Block Printing Ink, a brayer, book pages or other thin papers and several Couture Creations embossing folders.


Step Two: Apply a small amount of Block Printing Ink to the Gelli Plate and spread the ink evenly across the surface of the plate with a brayer.


Step Three: Open the embossing folder and place the raised pattern down onto the plate.


Gently press the folder onto the plate.


Step Four: Carefully lift the embossing folder from the plate and press a book page over the plate, pressing gently to transfer the pattern onto the paper. Lift the paper from the plate and set aside to dry. Make a second print by placing a book page inside the embossing folder, closing the folder, and pressing down on the folder to transfer the paint from the folder to the paper. Note: The layer of paint on the plate and on the embossing folder is thin and dries quickly, so be prepared to work through these steps fast! Clean the paint from the embossing folder as soon as you are done printing.


I was able to make two prints using one embossing folder. The print on the left was lifted from the Gelli Plate and the print on the right was made by pressing the paint left on the embossing folder onto a piece of paper.



These prints were so much fun to create! I added a piece of a doily created with the Dazzling Doily Die to the tag. I added a flourish cut with the Lanvin Intricutz Die to the bottom of my festive flower cluster on the tag envelope.


I also embellished an ATC with a monoprint that I created with the A Songbird's Poinsettia Embossing Folder, the Lanvin Intricutz Die and some Moonlight Self-Adhesive Pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
