Tags!!! Yay…. I love them. These useful functional little stationery items can be the cutest little works of art. Or they can be a simple little creation, the possibilities are endless. Welcome to another week of Caseing The Catty, where we are drawing inspiration from tags in Holiday catalogue. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Rebecca.
My inspiration came a little differently for this challenge. Instead of using a tag design for inspiration, I used a card and created a tag from that…. this is where my inspiration came from…
I love the elements and I thought this would look great on a tag. So I recreated the elements to work on a tag layout. This is how it turned out….
Creating tags are a great way to use up scrap pieces of cardstock and designer paper left over in weird shapes from other projects. Here I had this piece of DSP from the All is Bright designer paper pack and I just loved how the bauble was still in tacked. So I created a longer tag to suit this element too. Then created the feature element to sit beneath it.
First I used the Tailored Tag punch and a thin piece of scrap in another designer from All is Bright pack, but just punched out the top half, then a bottom half. They are not really halves though, it just looks that way, but I used up a strip of DSP, that was just waiting for it’s turn to shine.
I stamped my sentiments and fussy cut them to fit they way I wanted them too and adhered them on, with dimensionals, over the punched shape pieces. I adhere a star paper clip from the All is Bright Paper Clip pack at the top and adhere the “wishes” sentiment on an angle to match.
Finishing off the tag with a red circle punched shape and some Call Me Clover ribbon, brought it all together.
Next up in the hop is Judy.
After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, November 4th.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
