A Tale of Two Tags

I made two tags for two friends with different tastes:

The one above used Country Life.  I used the Cricut Craft Room to extend her pant legs and make boots from her previously bare feet.  I hand cut her jacket, trimmed her previously long hair, and added a leash.  Her dog, Sneaker, loves to wear bandanas and go for walks.  The flower is from the Flower Shoppe and is inked with Copics and Sneaker’s “boots” were inked with a white Uni-ball Signo pen.  The tag is from Winter Frolic and the red cardstock is embossed with a rose pattern from Lifestyle Crafts.  It was inked with Barn Door Distress Ink to bring out more of the dimension.  I have to say, I really love how this turned out.  I hope my friend does too.

The one below used Something to Celebrate for the birds with their heart and I used the same embossing folder as the previous tag.  I inked it and added glossy accents and glitter.  This is the same Winter Frolic tag.  The branch is the “tree” from Paper Doll dress up turned sideways.  There is a lot of pattern and glitter on this tag – aqua and red is one of the recipient’s favorite color combos (and mine too).  The roses were made from the Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge.  I wrote the Happy Valentine Day (couldn’t fit the ‘s)  on the heart as my friend loves those conversation hearts (that I couldn’t find anywhere)….And although it is very different than the tag above, I really love this one too!

Both tags include an Tim Holtz easel stand so the recipients can stand them up if they choose.

And here is one attached to a red gift bag:

Wherever you are today, I hope your day is sweet!

  1. I was reading this and bam it hit me, thats my baby. Thank you and yes I love the tag, now I get to go downstairs and open my gift, thanks again

  2. Works of art. First, let’s talk about that dog. OMGosh, Sis! How perfect and fun is that guy!? I think the bandana did me in! Perfect with the embossing, the colors, the mini prints! Love the flowers too!

    Wow- the second one needs to be framed. You are a genius with pattern. This tag reads like a collage with so much energy. Perfect flowers, the extended branch, coordinated colors and prints. Just so much fun to look at.

    I am sure your friends will use the easels because they are so lovely – pun not intended.

    Happy Valentine’s Day and thank you for this wonderful visual candy!
