Tagapalooza Part 1: How the addiction began...
Oh man, I have fallen for tags - big time. Let me tell you how this happened. I have been wanting to try my hand at making tags for awhile, but I lack the tools to do so. So I pushed the idea to the back of my mind. Until I was browsing at my local craft store last week and noticed a bag of tags (yes, I repeated that a few times too). On clearance. For $1.50. So, it begins.
This first batch of tags was made after I experimented with my MFT The Whole Herd stamp and die set.
I mean, seriously?? These are adorable! I can totally see tying these onto a gift bag or a present.
My inspiration was the MFT Sketch Challenge # 346, turned sidewards. (Or is it sideways? I never know). I digress. Here they are closer up:
I cut my haystack out of 110 lb CS and colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I propped it up on foam tape and stamped the sentiment directly onto the background. All my tags were stamped with Simon Says Stamp black ink - my very favorite ink I own.
My next one:
I got a bit fancy and took my diecut background and ran through my cutttlebug with a cloud embossing folder. I colored piggy with Spectrum Noirs and propped with foam tape. Super Cute! I meant to use Hogs & Kisses sentiment (and will, believe me) but I have been wanting to use the Squeal so had to go with it!
My final tag is super cute too!
I again ran my background cardstock through my cuttlebug with the cloud embossing folder (from Darice, I forgot to mention prior). But this time I wanted to use the negative side of the cloud to get a different look. I think it came out adorable. Chicky is colored with Spectrum Noirs like the others.
I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Add a sentiment.
Thanks for listening, have a great night!
