Tag

I decided to use a shipping tag for my ‘tag’ card! I stamped Stitch Background in Distress Pumice Stone. (I see this BG being used for so much more than just stitching!) Then I sponged the tag edges with Distress Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain.

Each of the Holiday Ornaments 2 were stamped in black then sponged while still in the Spellbinders Holiday Tags die with Vintage Photo.

Tag clsup

I used cotton crochet thread to suspend my tags, and popped 3 of them up.
I also made some tags the other day without the sentiment, just right for my packages!
BTW… I designed the set and Kelley added the wording! I love her insight of knowing just the right font to use!

Tag back

I finished off the backside with another piece of cardstock cut to fit the tag, sponged the edges and added last month’s release, Sacred Season & Ornaments 2 sentiments.

Here’s another one… see what I mean about that Stitch Background?! Buzzing Bee trails!

Simple Daisy

Daisy and the Bees from Simple Things stamped and masked to stamp the Stitch Background, colored with Copics, then embossed with clear embossing powder . I then sponged the image while still in the Spellbinders Labels 21 die with Tumbled Glass and wiped the excess with a paper towel.
The quote is stamped on SEI Sunny Day in the Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags & Accents and sponged with Wild Honey.

Now it’s time to move on to
Lorelie’s amazing blog!


Have fun and good luck!

Dawn
