MIM #181


Okay, another Monday, another learning experience (for me).

This week the talented and very sweet Miss Danielle  Flanders is up on MIM and she is showing us how to create beautiful embossed and debossed tags by using a paper casting technique with stamps and dies and TP.  
I must admit, I had to watch this video a couple of times before I attempted my paper casting project :-)

I tried a tag first, using a shaped die cut to cast my Spiral Bouquet stamps on.  It cut out okay, but the layers of TP seemed to be coming undone, so I stapled it to my DIY notched banner with NBUS blue staples :-)

Not crazy about how this came out, so I'll have to give the technique another try. Also,  thinking this tag will look better tied to the gift bag instead of hanging it on the wine bottle.



  1. Congratulations on completing the challenge. I'm still trying to figure out which stamp to use!

  2. Out of the 3 I started with, one turned out ok. There is definitely a learning curve with this technique, and I for one am going to try again. And I think your tag turned out just fine! :0)

  3. It IS hard to keep all the fluffy layers together, but your staples did the trick. Nice going. Love that you made it wine bottle tag, your friends will think it hoot when they find out what it's made of!

  4. great solution with the staples, it makes it easier if the paper is completly wet, then the paper sticks together. have fun with your next attempt :-)
