Tag 7

I'm still doing tags this is day 7. I must admit I am getting addicted to making them :)  Today's tag is a mish mash of stamps again. I like to mix them up a bit. I really like this sentiment God's timing is perfect, Trust it. You can find it here and the other stamp set is The simple things you can find that here also. I love that stamp set it is so versatile. 

I really like making borders with stamps so I did that again with this tag. I took some purple card stock and cut out a tag. I stamped all around using Versamark ink in then added white embossing powder and set it with the heat gun. I then stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to white card and then cut it out. I went around the edges with Colorbox silver ink then glued them onto the tag. I went around the whole tag with the silver ink also and it created a very soft border.  I added a few rhinestones and some white ribbon and it was done :)



Tag 6

I thought the tags finished up yesterday over at the Unity show and tell facebook page. But they are going til the 30th so I had some time to make another one today. I am not really sure what I was going for here but I ran with it whatever it is :) Bling overload comes to mind that is for sure :)  Here are my supplies and stamps I used.

~ Unity - Your Wings Exist ~
~  Unity - Angie girl: Dream With Your Heart ~
~ Memento Tuexedo Black Ink ~
~ Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch ~





 I stamped the sentiment onto the tag then stamped the flowers all around to create a border. I then just added lots of bling rhinestones and pearls to the flowers. I punched 2 tiny butterflies and then added some back lace to the the top.



Hope your having a great weekend - Enjoy :)

Friday Tag at Unity


Day 5 of my tag making I must admit I have enjoyed making tags.  I never thought I would since I have been strictly a card girl :) Today I went with flowers and butterflies I had to get them in there somewhere :) Feel the Joy and A Friend Loveth Itty Bittys were used in today's tag. 



I used a piece of coloured card stock and cut out a tag shape. I stamped the flowers with versamark ink then added white embossing powder and set it with the heat gun. I did the same thing with the small butterfly and then cut it out and glued just the body on the tag and curled the wings to give it some dimension. I then went around the whole tag with white pigment ink to give it a border then very lighty sponged over the top. I then added some bling to the little butterfly and some white ribbon to finish it off  :)

Thursday Tag 4

I am having a lot of fun with the tag challenge over at Unity. I was not really interested in tags until this week now I love making them :) I  needed to make my Thursday tag tonight since I am up so early for work I will not have a chance to make anything tomorrow. I decided on an Itty Bitty I have not yet used called a child is born. It is a really sweet Christmas stamp. I wanted to go with non traditional Christmas colours so I went with purple.


 I stamped the tag with memento Tuxedo black ink then the sentiment. I then took a dauber and sponged the Grape Jelly all around the edge darker on the outside and then lighter in the middle.  I then went back over the whole tag with Rose Bud. I left the manger white but then decided it needed some colour. So I went with the really light Memento Angel Pink. I added 1 rhinestone on the star just to finish it off :) 



 Thanks for visiting  ~  Happy Christmas 3 months early  ;)

Wednesday Tag


Day 3 already :) I pulled out my fav stamp from the Phyllis Harris collection Every Breath for today's tag I just love all of her girl stamps. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then paper pieced her dress with some scrap paper im not sure what kind. But I know it came from Michael's so it may be recollections. I then colored using alcohol markers. I added some flowers to the bottom as it looked a little bare then used some Icicle Stickles on the flowers and the wish she is blowing. The flower stamp is from stampin up. I then cut out the sentiment and inked around every word with memento rose bud ink then glued it on to the tag :)





                                I think she turned out really pretty in her polka dot dress :)

Tuesday Tag Challege

Welcome to Tuesdays Tag challenge . I went with the dragon fly stamp today called Dragonfly of Beauty.



  I am usually more of a clean and simple kind of style but wanted to venture out and make mess with splatter :)  I mixed acrylic paint with water in a spray bottle and sprayed the tag with 3 different colours. I used my heat gun to dry it in between colours. Then I stamped the dragonfly with white Colobox pigment ink I then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I could not fit all of the sentiment from the stamp set so just chose the word Beauty and embossed that also.I then coloured in a rhinestone heart hot pink and put it on the dragonfly.

Tag Challenge

Happy Monday :) It's my day off today I got up early to do my housework this morning. I thought I would check my email first then signed onto Facebook. BAD idea!!! I saw the tag challenge on the Unity show and tell page just had to take part :)  I have never done a tag before. I only had really small ones so decided to take the template and just make it bigger.

My inspiration was some card stock I got from Michaels craft store a few months ago. It was a cherry blossom tree. I just love Cherry blossoms :) So I pulled out my faithful flower stamp from the Angie Girl : Dream with your heart set. It reminds me of cherry blossoms I use this all the time. I then searched my stash of Unity stamps for a nice sentiment. I  wanted something with HOPE in it. I found the While I breath, I hope stamp from The simple things stamp set. I love the word hope it keeps me going in my faith when times are tough.






I stamped the flowers and the sentiment using Memento rich cocoa ink. The sentiment is one long sentence so I had to stamp it on sections to fit on the tag. I then used some acrylic paint to for the flowers. It was looking a little plain so I then stamped the whole tag with Memento Angel pink with a scrunched up paper towel. I added some small pearls for the centre of the flowers and some pink and brown ribbon.

  



 Here is the finished tag I love it and there are no butterflies in sight :) 






Here it is beside my inspirational cardstock :)
