I have decided to try my hand at making some tags. I only have one set of dies for tags and its this curved one with stitches and they are not very big. So I had a go at extending the length of the white tag and was quite pleased with honeys it was. Hopefully when I go back in to cut a pile out in anticipation it continues to be easy.
I then stamped and gold embossed this cute Christmas Tree stamp. Cant remember who I got it from so will have to ponder that. If anyone wants to know, let me know and I will put more thought into it. I love the gold embossing on black and it really pays to use the antistatic pillow (mine is so old but still works brilliantly so has been worth every cent).
After gold embossing I used the next size down in the tag die and cut the black layer.
I used a bit of scrap gold ribbon I had to make the tie for the top, Gold speckled gems in the circles that are empty. Finished off with a Winnie & Walter 'Joy' die and stamped 'to the World'. I used washi tape to cover the word 'Joy' on the stamp when I inked up.
All done and very simple. I have a feeling I will end up adding my tags to cards rather than using as tags on presents or maybe give as gift sets if I get enough done.
Okay I would like to enter this at:
My first and hopefully not my last.
Thanks everyone for visiting and I hope you come again soon.
I would also like to take a moment to thank all of you who take the time to leave such wonderful comments. There is nothing nicer than coming to the blog and seeing appreciation for what I have done.
I do try to get to people blogs and often link up through Feedly which I can check when I'm away looking after mum and dad. I also try to reply to comments when people have come visiting if not when on Feedly then through their comments. But sometimes when I click on a commenters name it will not take me anywhere to leave a message or find a blog.
Again thank you all very much.
