Game Time: An Awesome Tag


Hi everyone!

I feel like I've been neglecting my bloggers lately, so today I thought I'd share a tag that I made just for fun! It's a rare occasion that I make something that isn't related to my design team work, or a class project, so I'm excited about this one! Let me know what you think!



Products Used:
Distress Ink - Rusty Hinge
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
Distress Ink - Tea Dye
Distress Ink - Wild Honey
Staz-on Ink - Timber Brown
Alterations Texture Fades - Checkerboard
Alterations Strip Die - Tickets
Tim Holtz Stamps - Game of Life
Tim Holtz Stamps - Ultimate Grunge
Maya Road Wood Bingo Calendar Numbers
Tim Holtz Paper Distresser
Glossy Accents
Pop Dots


Quick Walk Through:
1: Ink entire tag lightly with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, and blend in sections of 
Tea Dye and Wild Honey.

2: With any of those Distress Ink colors, stamp images on the background from the Ultimate Grunge collection, and stamp the saying from the Game of Life collection in Rusty Hinge.

3: Emboss one corner with the Alterations Texture Fades - Checkerboard, and rub the Walnut Stain Distress Ink pad directly onto the embossed areas of the tag.

4: Stamp the Bingo stamp from the Game of Life collection onto a separate piece of cardstock
 with the Staz-on Ink, and cut it out.

5: Ink the edges of the bingo image with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and distress the edges 
with the Paper Distresser.

6: Die cut a ticket with the Alterations Ticket Die, and stamp the ticket image on top with the 
Staz-on Ink.

7: Ink the edges of the ticket with Walnut Stain, and distress the edges.

8: Adhere the bingo card, ticket, and game piece to the tag using Glossy Accents (or glue dots). Play with the paper, and roll the edges or crinkle the paper when you adhere it!

9: Distress and ink the edges of the tag.

Enjoy! If you make something similar, let me know! I'd love to see :)

  5. Hi Courtney

    I've fallen in love with the Bingo tag. So much so that I would love to frame a series of photographs of it for my living room wall.

    Please contact me at lyndal.beer@gmail.com to discuss this possibility?

    Many Thanks

  6. LOVE how you used those Bingo chips - just saw your You Tube and you weren't sure how to use them. If I found those, I would buy them too!
