As I mentioned a few days ago, I've reached the point where my next four Stampin' Up! sets are all tag stamps. I've made a decision - I am not going to use them all. I have the set called "Too Terrific Tags." I am not going to use any of them. I also have the set called "Tagger's Dozen." I have used three of the twelve stamps. I have the set "Terrific Tags." I am going to use three of the six stamps. And I have the set called "Tags So Much." I will use all six of those stamps. And I will call that "good enough!" :)
So today's tag and card are done using the "Tagger's Dozen" set. This first one is about two and a half inches across. The punched base was in my "card parts." I stamped the flower with the sentiment onto white cardstock and used a Nestability die to cut it out. I sponged light blue ink around the edges before removing from the die.
For this second card, I used the friends stamp. I inked it up with lavender ink and used black for the sentiment. I cut it with a Nestability and again sponged ink around the edge before removing from the die. I added tiny black gems to the butterflies' bodies. After doing that, I decided I wanted more black, so I used a black marker to draw over the stamped antennae and also the "trails." The embossed border was done with a Darice folder and I matted with black. I mounted the image piece on foam squares.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
