I am trying to introduce some themes to my daily posts to challenge myself to make different projects. So today is “Tag it Tuesday” LOL. Well we all know Stampin’ Up do amazing punches including the tag punches which I love! However, you do not always have to use them as plain tags, albeit at Christmas this is mighty handy! But throughout the year you may not feel the need to break out your tag punches but they can be used for so many other things!
I decided to create a couple of cards incorporating the Ornate Tag Topper Punch as an embellishment piece on my card front.
So I took some Pistachio Pudding and So Saffron A4 Cardstock and I cut the So Saffron piece to 8 2/8inches x 5 7/8 inches and scored it at 4 1/8 inches and cut the Pistachio Pudding piece to 11 6/8 inches x 4 1/8 inches and scored this at 5 7/8 inches for my card bases. I took some of the gorgeous Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper, free as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion with every £45 you spend, see more details below, and cut two pieces to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and a further two pieces to 4 inches x 2 inches. I then sponged on some Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink on to one of the larger pieces and some So Saffron Classic Ink on to the other larger piece of DSP. Taking the two smaller pieces I sponged on Pink Pirouette Classic Ink on to one piece and some Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink on to the other piece.
Taking my Ornate Tag Topper punch I punched the two tag pieces from these smaller pieces of DSP. To embellish the Tag I used the floral stamp image from the For The New Two Stamp Set. I stamped this in all four colours and fussy cut this out. I then took a small strip of Pistachio Pudding Cardstock and So Saffron Cardstock and stamped my sentiment from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. I thread some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon through my pink tag and some Crushed Curry Ribbon through my Wisteria Wonder tag and then popped these up on some Stampin Dimensionals and adhered them to my card front. I then adhered the stamped images and my sentiment banner. I also took my Four Petal Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack and punched 3 flowers from some Pistachio Pudding cardstock and some So Saffron cardstock. I added some Basic Pearl Jewels to these and added them to my card front with some Mini Glue Dots. I popped both card fronts onto my card bases with more Stampin Dimensionals and finished off with a few more Basic Pearl Jewels.
For the inside I just popped in some Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and stamped the floral images again from the For The New Two stamp set in coordinating colours.
I had no idea how these cards were going to turn out, I didn’t have a plan going into them only that I wanted to use the Ornate Tag Topper Punch!
