Got an email from Waltzingmouse today and realized I hadn't been there for awhile. Saw this sketch:
remembered that Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge #42 is to use pink and brown and ribbon and decided to use up scraps from last week's card. Since the scrap of homemade PP I had left was skinny, decided to make the center piece a tag. So Simon Says Stamp Tag It here I come.
CASEd myself sorta. Stamped the treetops from WMS Teeny Trees in a random pattern with Versamagic chalk ink, keeping in mind that I would wrap the mid-section with seam binding. Also stamped a border on the inside. Stamped welcome baby from WMS Say It Loud - great set - and heat embossed with clear powder.
TIP: use pigment inks to stamp and emboss with clear powder instead of adding millions of embossing powder colors to your stash.
Attached seam binding (can't see the wrinkles in the photo) with score tape. Attached buttons with glue dots. Finished up tag top with a spot of Basic Grey PP and attached to front with dimensionals.
Non-traditional colors perhaps, but the cute circles make it OK for a baby. I think.
Next is a tag I just assembled for Simon Says Stamp. The stamping was done over the past week. Frugal as I am, I like to stamp off on an empty tag before actually cleaning my stamps. The images are a bit lighter, but that's cool too.
Just added the burlap-y ribbon, button and beads strung on twine and voila:
Have a great weekend and keep your nose out of trouble. That's what I always tell DS. Doesn't always work...
