Tag Set

Happy Monday!
Shellye, TRC's November Guest Designer, here today with a tag duo that I made with the November "Love Makes You Family" Kit:

I started with standard, manila shipping tags from my stash. You could create your own by cutting a triangle, trimming off the corners and punching a hole out of any of the papers or cardstock you have received in your kit.    I inked around the edges with the Mini Ranger Distress Ink – Antique Linen.

 For the first tag, I stamped the flower bunch motif from the "Home Sweet Home" Stamp Set onto the top and bottom of the tag with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Next, I colored in the leaves and smaller flowers with Faber Castell Pitt Pencils.  I stamped the larger flower twice onto the red dot paper found in the 6X6 Paper Pad and trimmed out.  It was attached over the original stamping with foam adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment onto the blue grid paper and die-cut it with an oval shape.  For the sub-sentiment, I curved the stamped slightly so that it would follow the shape of the "Y" in family.

The second tag includes stamps from the "Family Tree" Set.  Before stamping, the background of the tag with lightly sponged with the Mini Ranger Distress Ink – Peacock Feathers.  The owl was stamped onto the kraft cardstock and trimmed out.  The eyes were stamped in two part onto white cardstock and the teal blue paper from the 6X6 pad.  Again, I used Faber Castell Pitt Pencils to color in the branch and leaves.

I love tags!  They can be added directly to a card, package, basket or scrapbook pages!
Thanks for joining me today!
