Day 2 of the Love TAGplorations Blog Hop & Linky Party

Hello Peeps! I'm happy to be taking part in the TAGplorations Blog Hop at STAMPlorations

Here are my tags:

For my first tag:
  • I used my brushes with the new ZEN HEARTS stencil on white CS. 
  • Fussy cut a HEART shaped tag around the stenciled area
  • Punched a hole at the top for the floss
  • Then I outlined the small opening with a coordinating marker
  • Added a few ZEN lines of my own 
  • And a  touch of shading with a broad marker.
  • Cut three layers of FOREVER word die from black CS 
  • Glued them together with spray adhesive and splaced them on the tag. 
  • Finished with two small hearts from the Clustered Hearts die 

 For my second tag:

  • Cut the middle sized tag from  LUGGAGE TAGS NESTING DIES
  • Brushed a soft shade of pink over the ZEN HEARTS stencil
  • Cut several of the Clustered Hearts die from different colors of CS
  • Placed teh outline of the Clustered Hearts at teh bottom of the tag
  • Inlaid the heart pieces..mixing up the various colors.
  • Cut one FOREVER word die from black CS. Glued it to the edge
  • Added embroidery floss and called it done:))
