Today I want to share a tag with you I created for one of the VSN challenges on Friday. We were to incorporate Music in our project. With all the gorgeous paper out there, it was an easy challenge. Since I had just gotten my latest Ranger product order, I had to try that out right away.

I started by cutting a tag with Tim’s Tag die out of Kraft cardstock. The edges of the tag were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

2 7/8″ wide pieces of  MME Lost & Found Christmas were adhered to make a slightly smaller layer. The edges were sanded and sponged them with Vintage Photo Distress ink before the layers were stitched to the tag base. A paper doily as cut, sponged with Vintage Photo ink and topped with a partial circle of the Lost & Found Christmas paper.

The doily was adhered to the left hand side of the age. Finesse Pearl swirl piece were adhered to top right of the doily. A sentiment from Flourishes Sentimental Christmas was first stamped in Tsukineko’s Delicata Gold ink, then in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the lower right corner of the green paper strip. The same gold ink was used to add a gold edge to the tag base.

A lightweight coaster as well as a dark red piece of paper from the Christmas collection were cut with Tim’s Mini Reindeer die. The patterned paper was sanded. Both the paper as well as the coaster edges were sponged with Vintage Photo ink before the paper was adhered to the coaster reindeer. Small branches were cut out of Core’dinations paper with Tim’s Festive Greenery die. The paper was sanded before both the branches as well as the reindeer were adhered over the doily layers.

The tag was sprayed with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist and a few more pearls were added to the reindeers neck. Seam Binding was dyed with Vintage Photo Distress Reinker and sprayed with more Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist before it was tied under a black button and adhered to the top of the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

I am excited to be a guest designer for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps this month! My gig starts out easy with today’s Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge . Use heat or dry embossing on your project. Since making my first tag for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge this week, I was itching to create another tag.

For this one I started out with embossing a 2 /3″ x 4″ piece of Winter Park Patterned paper with a Snowflake  Embossing Folder. The raised snowflakes were sanded and the sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. Two more 2 3/4″ wide pieces of the same paper pack were sanded and stitched to a 3″ x 6″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been sponged with Vintage Photo ink. The layers were adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock that had been cut with Tim’s large tag die.

For the sentiment panel I cut a piece of white and Kraft Cardstock with Tim’s Tag die. From the white piece I used the inner oval of the sentiment label. A sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Holiday Sentiments was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink in it’s center. Then it was embossed with the same embossing folder used for the Winter park paper and sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. From the Kraft cardstock I used the outer part of the label. It was also sponged with Vintage ink and two brown brads were added. The panel was adhered with dimensionals to the lower part of the card.

I dyed some seam binding with Vintage Photo Distress Re-inker and water. It was turned into a bow and a button was tied on with Linen Thread. Parts of a Finesse Swirl were added above the bow and underneath the sentiment label. Three red Baby Bling Rhinestones were added under the sentiment.

As focal point for the upper part of the tag, I cut and embossed a piece of textured Kraft cardstock (Stampin’ Up!) with a Fanciful Holiday Shapeabilities die. It was sponged with Vintage Photo ink and a red Baby Bling Rhinestone was added to it’s nose. More dyed seam binding was attached to another red button and adhered to the top of the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to participate in the challenge.
Have a great weekend!

Today’s Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess is Cindy Haffner. The Challenge is:  Use any image stamp your heart desires, just make sure you include these embellishments on your project: Tag, Flowers and Ribbon!

I heard tag and thought it would be fun to create a tag for this challenge. I started by cutting a tag with Tim’s Tag die out of Kraft cardstock. The edges of the tag were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

2 7/8″ wide pieces of Echo Parks Times and Seasons were stitched together into a slightly smaller layer. The edges were sanded and sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink before the layers were adhered to the tag base. A paper doily as cut, sponged with Vintage Photo ink and adhered to the left hand side of the age. Finesse Pearl swirl pieces were adhered to top right and lower left of the doily. A sentiment from the new Flourishes set Petals and Peace was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on the lower right of the green layer.

A leight weight coaster was cut and embossed with a Holiday Tag die. The same die was used to cut a red piece of Times and Seasons paper. The edges of the paper were sanded and it was cut at the embossed line. Both pieces were sponged with Vintage Photo before the paper was adhered to the coaster piece.

Seam binding was sponged with Vintage photo before it was tied into a double bow and topped with a button. The bow and button were tied to the ornament with gold cord (Stampin’ Up!).  Zva Creative Mini flowers were added underneath the ornament. More sponged seam binding topped with a button on top of the tag finish off my project.
