Today I had a realization... I love making cards and usually make at least one a day, if not more. However, I hardly ever make tags! In fact, the only tags I have ever made were completely one dimensional- just stamped and given a "vintage" look by using distress inks. I think my problem lies in my misconceptions about tags. They don't have to be simple and they don't have to be flat. In fact, since they aren't going into an envelope, they can pretty much have as many layers and embellishments as I want! I decided it was time to change my thinking and get over whatever was holding me back from making tags. My plan? To think of tags as miniature versions of cards. Once I put my mind on that track, my hands did the rest! Here's the tag I made tonight...


  • white card stock
  • Nestabilities dies (Labels Eight)
  • Tim Holtz Visual Artistry clear stamp set (Flights of Fancy)
  • Martha Stewart clear stamp set (Butterflies)
  • Stampendous background stamp (Music Score)
  • Tsukinekos Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black
  • Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey)/Blending Tool
  • Copic Markers (Y15, Y17, YR16)
  • Honey Bee Scissors
  • Dimensional Adhesives
  • Black Eyelet
  • Black satin ribbon

I am so in love with it! I don't mean to toot my own horn, but it turned out so beautifully I can't stop looking at it! (Don't you just love it when you make something that takes your own breath away)? Anyway, I'll probably be listing this little beauty in my Etsy shop in the next couple of days, but I wanted to share it with you first!

As always
