Your Creative Connection 111: Creative Tags
July 09, 2020
Hello friends. We are back for another creative showcase with my global demonstrator friends. This week, out theme is 'Tag, You're It'. When I think of tags, my mind usually goes to vintage tags, or Christmas tags. This time I have created a vintage tag using some of my favourite floral and vintage Stampin' Up! products.
I started with a 2" wide piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and have used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch (links to all the products I have used today are at the end of the post). I sponged the edges and then layered images from the Very Versailles stamp set, using Crumb Cake ink. I just love this stamp set for vintage floral imagery.
The flowers are from Tasteful Textures stamp set, and were stamped in Saddle Brown Stazon and then watercoloured with a mix of Rococo Rose, Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss. I used my Early Espresso marker for some additional highlights at the end.
My sentiment is from Very Versailles and I used the script stamp on the background of the sentiment strips as well (plus some additional Crumb Cake sponging). The Champagne Rhinestones are a great colour for adding to vintage projects for a little bling, and I have also used some In Good Taste wooden elements.
Finally I have used the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack for top of the tag. I really love the texture in this trim combo and they are easily frayed for more of a vintage look.
Now it's time to head to our lovely friend Dawn Olchefske in Minneapolis, USA and see her tag themed project.
