I am trying to introduce some themes to my daily posts to challenge myself to make different projects. So Tuesday’s will now be known as “Tag it Tuesday’s”. 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 tag to adorn a bag of Easter yummies using my ever faithful Ornate Tag Topper punch.
Taking a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and some Daffodil Delight cardstock I cut them both down to 4 1/2 inches x 2 inches and used my Ornate Tag Topper Punch to create two tags. On my Whisper White tag using my favourite stamp set of the moment, For Peep’s Sake (love it, its so cute!!!), I stamped the main chick image in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink. For my sentiment I partially inked my stamped with Daffodil Delight ink by covering the top half of my stamp with masking tape and then after removing this I used the Costal Cabana and Strawberry Slush Markers from the In Colour 2013 – 2015 Stampin Write Marker Set and with a little huff I stamped my sentiment.
On my Daffodil Delight tag in matching Daffodil Delight Classic Ink I stamped the row of Easter Eggs image from the stamp set all over my tag. On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock I also stamped this image in Pistachio Pudding, Daffodil Delight, Costal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush Classic Ink. I cut an egg out of each colour and popped these on to my Whisper White tag at the feet of my little chick with some Stampin Dimensionals. Using the Small Oval Punch I punched an oval out of some Daffodil Delight cardstock and lined this up with the hole in my tags and a punched a hole for my ribbon to go through.
To finish my tags I sponged all the edges with Daffodil Delight ink and popped some Daffodil Delight Candy Dots onto the front and then using some Crushed Curry Taffeta Riboon tied it round a Cellophane Gusseted bag filled with yummy chocolate eggs.
