“With Love” Tag
This tag was made for the Mod Squad Challenge “Tag It!” where we were to create a tag. We could make just a tag, any size, or attach one by using a little pocket on the card. (http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/2014/10/tag-it.html)
I wasn’t sure if the tag had to be attached to the card using a pocket, or if it could be attached to a card in any way and the pocket was just how Cat decided to do it as an example. In any event, I included a picture of the tag by itself, and of it attached to a card base. (I couldn’t get it in a pocket; it was too thick.)
This card is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Falling in Love With … where we are to create a card to show what inspires us this fall. I am inspired by and love the warm, fall colors! (http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/?p=1955)
I had gotten a few new things from the Heartfelt Creations booth at the Scrapbook Expo I went to in September, and thought I’d use them for this tag project.
The cardstock I used for this tag was Gina K dark chocolate and 2 sheets from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection paper pack. I cut the tag using the Tim Holtz alterations Moves & Shapers Bigz Die – Tags and Bookplates. I really like this die because it makes a nice size tag with plenty of room to work.
I used the Heartfelt Creations (Spellbinders) Classic Sunflower die for the flowers, and the Heartfelt Creations (Spellbinders) Ornamental Add On die set for the leaves. The flowers were stamped with the coordinating stamp called Classic Sunflower Pre Cut Set to add detail.
The flowers were colored with Copic Markers (YR24, YR31, E39, and E29). Viva 3D stamp paint in copper was sponged on the petals to add shimmer. Barbara Trombley’s Elements – Earth Textures was added to the centers of the flowers.
The greeting came from the Gina K Designs “A Year of Flowers 2” set and was stamped with Gina K dark chocolate ink.
The flowers ended up a lot more orange than I expected, so I inked Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress inks onto the tag to get the color a litttle closer.
I added a Tim Holtz Ideology wire pin to the ribbon to keep it from falling off of the tag. The greeting is in a Tim Holtz Ideology ornate plate. And K & Company metal art stickers were added to the card base.
Thanks for checking out my tag and card project!
