Great video! Thanks for sharing!


When I first saw the tag I couldn't figure out how you got that torn look, well you got to watch the video, this is so exciting to learn a new trick. Or treat. Glad Mario sent me over to see you.


Okay my friend this is torture ... You knew I wanted that stamp set on Saturday but could not buy it yet !! LOL
This is so cool ... great video I AM GOING TO GET THAT STAMP SET !!! :)

Love this technique...new to me! Thanks so much for the video tutorial!! I think the tag turned out GREAT!!


Very cool! Thanks so much for sharing!


I really like this technique, except I think it's a waste of Tissue Tape! Maybe if you peeled it off and stuck it on wax paper to use on other projects.


This is fabulous Chelle - thanks for the awesome video!


Wowzy - the seahorse version is even more fabulous!!! Stunning!


So very cool! Your projects are always stunning!

This is the first time I've seen the inking tool pads stored in the bottom of the minis and it's genius! Thanks for sharing. The look overall is awesome too. -Steve

Great idea, Miss Chelle, love the tag!
The little round pads on the bottom of the mini ink pads is genius! I def need to order some more foam pads!

Super technique, beautiful tag and card, I will definitely be trying this one, thanks.

Amy Gray

Great technique. Thank you for sharing! I'm going to give it a try. BTW, great stamp set, can't wait to get it!


Hi, Chelle! Great tag and technique. Thank you so much for sharing this info!

One question....can Artist Tape be used instead of the washi/tissue tape for this technique? I tend to be stingy when it comes to my decorative tapes. Artist tape is removable...any reason why I shouldn't substitute it?

Thanks so much.
