Happy Tuesday!

Today I’ve got a quick, cute tag that would be a great tie on to a Valentine’s gift, but I avoided the traditional red & pinks so it could be used anytime for someone special 🙂

Lawn Fawn’s mini sets are perfect for little projects like this and the combo of cute images, quirky puns and a fab price point make them pretty irresistable! This one in a chameleon set has to be one of my personal faves though (and it’s on SALE right now!)

It’s a fun one because it can be any color you want it to be… I sat and did a bunch a while back in shades of green, blue, yellow and orange and this little guy was the last of them.  I decided to work with a background of green & blue (mowed lawn & peacock feathers Distress Oxide on a kraft tag with a sweet heart pattern like this one from MFT) and to ink up a die cut heat with spiced marmalade & fossilized amber to tie it all together.  The little heart in the stamp set was a nice fit to add some black highlights to a few of the hearts in the background and a few glossy white dots (Nuvo crystal) finished it all off!  The detailing on the heart started out glossy white, but picked up the color from the oxides it was spread over.  Kinda gives a cool tone-on-tone effect!

I hope you like my little tag!  It was fun to put together and a nice break from the traditional valentine colors.  I’m looking forward to sharing with you again in a few days for our February Blog Hop, happening this Friday!  Be sure to check back and see what our design team has been up to!

Happy Tuesday!  (I’m just going to pretend this post isn’t a day late… gotta love technical difficulties!

I’m sharing a tag I made using many of the same products I used on my card from the ‘All That Sparkles’ blog hop.  This tag has a bit more of a distressed feel along with the glitter, but I simply used a torn piece of the tissue collage paper on a kraft tag.  The shape of my tissue wasn’t planned, but seemed like a perfect fit to use this die cut sentiment from MFT, miss you.

Missing people is a big part of Christmas when you’re far away from family, but I’m so blessed to have a loving husband and family where I am and technology to keep us all feeling close <3

I love the look of the Glimmer paste on the kraft tag and a bit of extra sparkle one one of my berries with some red Stickles glitter glue.  A full crinkle bow finishes off my tag!

With less than a week until Christmas (wow!) I hope you are feeling the warmth of the season and take some time to enjoy the people you are spending it with, as well as sending warm thoughts to those you are missing!

Inky hugs,

Tara

 

Floral Aviary Tag

How TWEET is this Floral Aviary Set from Flora and Fauna???

I just love the whimsical little images in this set and loved coloring them even more!

I created my tag using a Luggage Tag die from my stash but any  tag die will do like the Concord and 9th Sprinkles tag. I die cut it from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides with a blending tool to create my background.

I colored the image with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut them out. I created the cage using  a Spellbinders Bird Cage Die, but Penny Black has some adorable ones here too. I die cut the bird cage from white cardstock three times and adhered them together, and then embossed the top layer with Clear Embossing poweder twice…doesn’t it look like a real shiny metal bird cage? lol

I adhered the flowers and birds with the cage onto my tag using glue and foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx Ink. Some white gel pen highlights finished off my little tag.

Thank you for stopping by today and happy Craftin’!
