When the Occasions Catalogue was first released I totally discounted the ‘That’s the Tag’ bundle on page 23. That was until my downline gave me some sample tags. It was then added to my next order. This bundle is so much better in real life.
I had fun using one of the dies to create not one tag but four cards.
Using the ‘Starburst’ die from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies I cut it out from Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Copper Foil. I love these colours together.
I then cut two Copper Foil and two Basic Black Ovals – this is one of the other dies in the set. This is for the mat.
Using a scrap of Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake I cut two of the central piece (using the Starburst die) then stamped the ‘Happy Birthday’ in Memento Black. I did use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to make sure my words were straight.
Then the fun began swapping the colours around to create the above four cards. The first two cards have a stamped background. I used the ‘splotches’ stamp from Touches of Texture for this inked in Crumb Cake. The last two cards have a dry embossed background. I used Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the third card and the Large Polka Dot Folder for the last card.
The thread is the Metallic Copper Thread wound around a variety of ways.
I love how these turned out – they have already been used as I had four masculine birthdays this month. Better get making some more.
