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’!

Happy Tuesday!  If your weekend was anything like mine, you may have felt like your only super-power was the ability to rescue some wine that was trapped in a bottle 😉  If  you know someone having one of those days (or weeks, or…) this quick little tag and a bottle of wine might be just what they need!  It’s simple, but pretty fabulous I think… I know I’d welcome it if someone brought one to me!

I’ve used the stamps from Tim Holtz blueprints WINE mini stamps- love them!  I stamped all in Archival Ink on a kraft tag, layering the wine glass slightly over the bottle and stamping a second time on a scrap of watercolor paper.  The grapes & corkscrew images were stamped with colored Archival Ink and I simply colored the images to match using Watercolor pencils.  A touch of glitter on both (Nuvo Crystal Drops) and a finish of Glossy Accents on the glass add that little something special.  And of course, a snarky sentiment about wine from Tim’s new Small Talk set… love it.  I found some pre-colored krinkle ribbon in my little stash bottle to tie at the top (I tend to make this in large batches when I do so I can just grab a piece when I need it).  If you’re tying it to a wine bottle for a gift, a bit of twine through the hole works perfectly!

Quick & fabulous… just the way I like it!  Hope you like it too!  I’m loving these blueprints (they’ve been on my wishlist for a while, so you can expect to see more of them in the future!).   Cheers!


Inky hugs,

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’ve got a tag to share with you!  I know many people avoid tags because they don’t know what to  do with them, but I like them as they give me options… a tag this size can easily be attached to a blank card base for a quick card, or tied to a gift bag or bottle of wine 🙂 A handmade tag is a great way to add a personal touch to a quick & easy gift!

I’ve used the same tree I featured last week (cut from two different papers to make two trees!) which is a fave of mine (from several years ago) by Dee’s Distinctively.  The little cabin scene was stamped in grey on a die cut circle… I’m honestly not sure who makes the stamp though, as it was an extra piece from a card class I went to a couple years ago and it just seemed like a perfect fit! 

The tag is kraft, dipped in some Distress Oxide ink leftover on my kraft sheet from another project.  The metal tag is by Tim Holtz, I inked/painted it with some Vintage paint to warm it up a bit.

It’s a simple project, but is perfect for sharing some holiday cheer 🙂

Inky hugs,



p.s. plan to join us this Saturday, Dec. 9 for another BLOG HOP!
