The Funkie Junkie Saturday Showcase - Stamperia's House of Roses

Sadly, this is my last post for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.  I find that life is demanding more of me and  I don't have the crafting time that I used to have.  It has been a real pleasure to serve with this design team and Linda, the owner.

For this Saturday Showcase, all the designers have designed a tag to share so be sure to visit the blog to see all the designers' creations.  I've used Stamperia's House of Roses paper collection on my tag.  This is such a gorgeous collection of pinks.

I decided to go simple with this as the cut apart I used really doesn't need anything else other than the simple white woodgrain background,

To create the background, I first painted a Graphic 45 large tag with white gesso.  Then I stenciled on a woodgrain pattern using a Tim Holtz stencil and texture paste.

After the texture paste was really dry, I inked with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to give the appearance of aged bleached out wood. 

Next I put a thick layer of Ranger Crackle Accents all over the cut apart and let that dry.  Then I rubbed Hickory Smoke ink over the surface so that the crack in the surface would show. 

Then it was a simple matter of assembly.  I diecut  couple of corner vines to place underneath the pretty Little Birdie flowers.   I also used Lindy's Ponderosa Pines Olive and Frosty Forest Green to color the leaves to give them a more natural appearance.

At the bottom I added die-cut paper lace.

A pretty bow and butterfly complete this simple but effective tag.  I can see this on a white wrapped package. It would be the perfect thing to turn an ordinary package into a masterpiece.


  1. Wonderful shabby chic tag! I loved the soft effect of the bird and didn't realize that you had added that crackle glaze that gave it such a beautiful shabbiness! I am storing that one away for future use as I never thought of using it on pattern paper! :) Beautiful tag!

  2. Love this gorgeous shabby tag. The wood grain is a perfect backdrop to the gorgeous pinks. Love the crackle finish and that lovely bird perched in front of his house. You definitely are a master with paper and this creation is a perfect example of that.

  3. Oh, Maggi, your tag is a masterpiece all unto itself! I love that shabby wood backdrop and how you've used the crackle accents over that gorgeous cut apart to give it this gorgeous aged effect highlighted with the Hickory Smoke ink. Clever you! You will be sorely missed at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog, and wishing all the best to you!

  4. Maggi it's heartbreaking that you are leaving us. One last time I see how you take papers to another level with your skill and mastery - the crackle over the base comes alive even more with the ink and the woodgrain background and floral bouquets are of course the perfect accompaniments. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you've done for the team, for being such a good friend and for sharing your talents with us over the years. You will be sorely missed by us all xxx
