Today is all about tags!
Tags of any shapes or sizeswhatever else you want to play withSample #1
This is a tag....just a tag, but what a tag! Sam has collaged a shipping tag with various background papers, added stickers and a brad plus a button, then she has wrapped wire around the tag and added tiny beads. I topped it off with some cool fibers. This may be used as a stand-alone tag/card just as it is or you might adhere it to the front of your card. Sample #2
For this card I ran some cardstock through my corrugator for dimension, then glued some fibers behind it before placing it on my card. I guess I first stamped the little flower in Versamark all over the cardfront. Then I sponged different colors of dye ink on the 4 small tags and stamped more flowers and colored them with markers. I laid the tags together and stamped the verse then I adhered them to the cardstock strip just a little ways apart from each other with pop dots. This is a quick way to incorporate your tags right into your design itself. Stamp credits: verse is Art Gone Wild and flower is unknown Sample #3
For this card I first stamped in Versamark and a couple of light dye ink colors my main image all over the front. Then I took an oval vellum tag apart...prying off the vellum from the back side very gently. I then glued a pc. of plastic for my 'window' and turned the tag face down with the plastic on the bottom. I then (very tediously) laid small pcs of foam tape along the metal rim and filled with small confetti and a cute little metal clothes hangar then covered it with a pc. of white cardstock. I then taped this concoction on the center of my cardfront. My tag has now become a shaker window! Stamp credit: paper salon (hard to see from the scan but it says: Hang In There!) There are many more ways of using tags with your cards but these are just 3 easy ones for you. Now....tag! You're It!!!
