Just cause it’s called “Tag It” doesn’t mean you can’t use it on a card!
I took a page right out of Pam Morgan’s stamping demonstration at convention and just used the image – no coordinating framelit – to keep it simple. The images in this set are VERY versatile – it’s awesome if you have the framelits, but you DON’T HAVE TO HAVE THEM to use the set. (I KNOW. What a SHOCK.)
I inked the image twice – once with Gumball Green (my new fave green) and once with Primrose Petals. I cut the Primrose Petals image up to get the “Celebrate” flag and the accent balloon, then added the Summer Starfruit Dahlia with a glue dot.
That eyeball is begging for embellishment but I held back. Make a note – that doesn’t happen often with me.
Of course, the stamp set is called TAG It. In my book that mean’s it’s just begging to be a tag, and while I was at it I tossed in the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits for good measure (you knew I had them – when I said you didn’t need them I meant it in the most hypothetical sense. Of course you need them.)
This little tag just makes me happy. Same color scheme with a little bit of Soft Suede, cuz now we’re talkin’ dirt. And take a closer look at the pearls in the middle of the flowers:
Yellow Sharpie Marker to the rescue! Had to be done.
I used the negative of the Chalk Talk Framelit to create an opening in this tag. If you jumped on the Magnetic Cutting Pad bandwagon before we sold 13 weeks of inventory in 3 weeks (Yes Ma’am!!) it will be a snap to get that tag image cut squarely in the center of the Gumball Green tag. (If you didn’t jump on the bandwagon, don’t worry, they are coming – you just have to be patient. I’m not good at that.)
Layer a piece of Very Vanilla card stock behind with some dimensionals to keep it floating and you’re good to go:
It’s a special priviledge to feature the Tag It! stamp set for this month’s RemARKable blog tour. This set is the 2013-2013 Ronald McDonald House Charities fundraiser stamp set. For every set sold, Stampin’ Up! donates $3.00 to RMHC in support of the good work that organization does to support families in crisis. Learn more about the Stampin’ Up! giving program and RMHC.
Your next stop on the tour is the Trinity Design Studio – I know Robin has a treat for you!
