Day 5: Love TAGplorations Blog Hop & Linky Party


Welcome to Day 5 at STAMPlorations:))
Here is my tag for the day:

  • I used the largest of the LUGGAGE TAGS NESTING DIES and cut one from White CS and one from pink CS
  • Then I cut the Clustered Hearts die from the white tag and another Clustered Hearts die from red CS
  • Cut one FOREVER word die from white CS and colored with a few shades of red markers
  • Placed a piece of acetate behind the white tag over teh hearts opening
  • Inlaid and Glued the Red outline of the Clustered Hearts die back into the white tag
  • Added several sequins to create a shaker..used foam tape to adhere the two tags together...allowing the pink tag to show just a bit from the bottom edge
  • Added a bit of splatter with red and black distress inks
  • Glued the colored FOREVER word die in place
  • Finished with several strands of embroidery floss for the tassel:))
  • And then popped four red hearts around the front for balance and interest
