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!
