“Loved” Mixed Media Tag with Karen Jiles


Hi there,

It’s Karen sharing a “Loved” Mixed Media Tag that I created with the Bubble Wrap Stencil and chipboard border. I love the combination. The use of the stencil enabled me to add a pop of colour and the chipboard border added some great elements throughout the tag. The chipboard and stencil really paired well with the flowers and pins that I embellished the tag with.  The Stone Drops added some vintage and aged effects. Take a look at how this tag came together in the tutorial below.




Step 1: Lay Bubble Wrap stencil on top of manila tag and secure stencil using washi tape. Transfer Bubble Wrap pattern onto tag using a Blending Dauber and Panama Rose ink.




Step 2: Cut chipboard border down to size of tag and adhere to tag. Note: Save the leftover chipboard for a future project. Add flowers, leaves and clear pebbles to tag.




Step 3: Add additional flowers, metal charm, beaded pins and dyed ribbon. Distress edges to tag using Panama Rose ink.




Step 4: Add White Stone Drops to edges of tag and heart pins.




Step 5: Using white paint and a paint brush, highlight the flowers, leaves and dyed ribbon.




Step 6: Tap on white paint with paint brush to enhance the overall design.


Step 7: Add crystals to the tag using Crystal Katana tool.

Step 8: Continue adding texture to the tag. Note: I added white Stone Drops to the chipboard border to add some more texture.
Step 9: Continue embellishing as desired.

Altered Clipboard with Karla Yungwirth

Hello friends, Karla back today. I’m so excited to be continuing on with the awesome Southern Ridge Trading Company Design Team, and I can’t wait to bring you inspiration using the fun products in the shop each month!! Today, I’m sharing an Altered Steampunk Clipboard using the Steampunk Dragonfly Chipboard (sm)Mini Wood GearsMulti Gear Stencil and Fibers Stencil from the SRTC Shop.


It was fun to pair the cool steampunk supplies with the metallic embossing powders to create coordinating accents. The stencils add such a neat layer of interest of dimension as well! Those gears turned out so neat! I’ve used them on quite a few projects previously and I still have some left over. I love how versatile they are!


I just love how all the layers of powders melted beautifully on the lovely chipboard dragonfly. It did not warp at all even after heating it numerous times and was easily attached to the embellished clipboard with Matte Medium adhesive. The stencils added so much detail using both Distress Oxide Inks and Embossing Powders.


You can find the video HERE to see the process I used to create this chipboard wall-hanging and see how easy it is to customize the chipboard and wood pieces! I had so much fun combining all these fun products and really love how this project turned out!
