Post#79 Love You Glitter Tag

I try out quite a few things/ideas all the time….some turn out perfect or quite good….some go straight into the bin ..while some turn out somewhere in the middle….but I learn something new every single time…..like this tag that I’m sharing with you today… ūüôā
My aim was to create a die cut word tag and the use glitter to fill in the negative spaces….So I die cut the words love & you on a large tag…then put double sided tape on the back of the tag…then I attached a slightly smaller tag at the back…Now I had to add glitter on the words and press them down so quite a lot of it stick onto the tape and create the glitter effect words on the tag…
Now here is what I learnt…for this technique one should always use superfine glitter as quite a lot of it would stick onto the tape…unlike the not-so-fine glitter that I used…it still turned out quite nice…
Jennifer McGuire¬†has quite a lot of ¬†excellent tutorials on using glitter with dies etc…Once I am able to get the right kind of glitter I plan to go through her tutorials again…¬†
I stamped a hearts border stamp on the top section of the stamp and added ribbons to finish the tag…
Hope you liked it…

Post#35 Paper Fringe Tag

My daughters and I have enjoyed making fringe cards….they are fun to make and the end result is always beautiful….but this time I wanted to try this technique on a tag…
I used two strips each of 3 different shades of pink….the topmost layer has to be a bit wider than the rest ¬†to leave some space for ¬†punching a hole for the ribbon….cut all these strips three quarters of the way to the top with fringe scissors…then attach these layers onto the die cut tag base starting from the bottom layer upwards…The sentiment was attached with a few mounting foam squares…
Hope you liked it.
