Especially for You - Tag

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everyone, I decided to join in the fun of the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs this week and make a tag for my DT post. I had full intentions of it being Festive in style, but it was such a horrible day outside I decided to think of summer days.

I cut a piece of Cardstock into a tag shape measuring 3.5 by 8 inches. I mounted my pink striped paper onto it which was distressed at the edges with my distress tool, to give a shabby feel.  I cut out my Deco Border in pink and white paper and offset one in front of the other to give added dimension.

I cut sections of my Snowflake Doily and placed on my tag for interest and texture. Next layering my fanciful flourishes on top.

My flowers were cut out in white card. I dabbed a little distress into the middle area of the flowers for shading and added flower soft for texture into the centres to finish them.

My speech bubble is from the Latest Release. The die is called Say What and has many shaped bubbles which are so much fun to use. I stamped a sentiment onto it and added distress ink around the edges.

My doll stamp was coloured with Copics and her dress was stamped on patterned paper and layered up. Finally adding a ribbon and some bling for finishing touches.

Hope you have a lovely creative weekend,

  1. Hi Julie! Your tag is wonderful! Love the stripy paper and those delicate dies!
    I've been meaning to ask you.. What gsm paper do you use for die cutting (what's best anyway) and what do you use with it to make them cut properly and how on earth do you take them out so pretty and straight? So you use a vellum paper in between? I have a swirly die and no matter what I do the die doesn't want to come out of the cutter and when I manage to get it out it's like you pulled it through a bush! :) any tips? :) thank you! X

    1. Hi Ingrid, I will email you later on today to try and work out where you are going wrong. Cheery Lynn dies are coated with a special release paint which makes them far easier to come out. I also use a metal shim for intricate dies.
