Tags are the inspiration for this weeks Sparkle and Shine challenge. Tags aren't something I make very often and I haven't used a tag on one of my cards for ages, so thought it was about time I got out my tag die and put it to use:
I received some gorgeous WPlus9 stamp sets a few weeks ago for my birthday and have been fiddling around with them but as I mentioned in my last post, I had completely lost my mojo. So today was all about creating and trying some of the ideas that have been stuck in my head.
I die-cut the tag from white CS and put a piece of patterned paper behind it. After stamping, die-cutting and colouring the critters, I positioned them in the windows. These are great because the die cuts their arm separately so they hang over things. So cute!
I popped up the tag on some foam tape, as well as the sentiment on some white CS as well. I actually managed to make a decent bow with grey and white twine and glued that along with a scattering of sequins.
The critters and sentiment are from WPlus9 'Going Places'. The patterned paper is from Dear Lizzy 'Serendipity'. The sequins and tag die are from Pretty Pink Posh.
I have three other challenges I would like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Use a Stamp and Blog Hop)
Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge (Use a Stamp/Die or Punch)
NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) Challenge
I feel so much better after making a few cards today and hopefully my 'lack of mojo' funk will now pass. I have another card design in my head that hopefully I can tackle tomorrow. Lets hope it keeps on raining.......
