Technique: Embossing a wine tag

Hello crafting friends!! This is Ruthie and today I come with the embossing technique but with a variant. I decided to do embossing on a wine tag but with different colors; yes, so I used a the VersaMark Watermark Ink Stamp Pad  Dazzle Frost and the Bricks Tempalate

Its's quite simple but i would still go ahead and share the easy steps!

I used the Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Bag to remove any static from the paper. This is one useful product i cannot have neat embossing without. I put the desired stencil on the tag and apply the VersaMark Watermark Ink Stamp Pad  Dazzle Frost over the cardstock. With this particular embossing ink you get a beautiful dazzle effect as well unlike the plain Versamark.


I used green, yellow and red embossing powders. Choose colours you love! And then with a heat craft tool  settle the embossing powder; you will see how it changes the consistency and creates a fabulous texture look.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut this wine tag ; makes it easier! You can have a wine tag in just a few minutes! Else there are couple of templates floating around too :)

Here is a close up! I used the Lawn Fawn stamp from the set Hello Friend with Archival Dye Ink - Jet Black. Archival inks are water resistant and my favourite. You can use them on all surfaces and they are suitable for stamping, embossing too!

Now it is ready as a gift!

Hope you like this technique and this wine tag. I love it!! You can use this technique for just about andy project!

  1. Pretty tag!!! I have the frost watermark pad too, but I never used it. I'm guessing I'll give it a go now! :)
