Many thanks

** 10/20/14 Featured Creation at Scrapping4fun Challenges! **

Hi everyone! We're already into the third month of my guest design gig with Card Mania Challenges, and I have to say that I've thoroughly enjoyed myself! August and September are just a blur (like this whole year has been) and October has begun. I'm happy to share my inspiration project for CMC #57 - Tag! Come play with us! This is a real easy one - we want to see your projects with tags. Your project can contain a tag or your project can be a tag. And we're being sponsored by the fun ColorInk Digital Stamps! ;)

I chose the pretty Bloomy Watering Can digi for my tag project which I fussy cut with my Silhouette and adhered to a circle die cut affixed to a large tag (matted on another large tag) from my stash. I have tons of tags in various colors and sizes in my stash, and it felt good to use a couple of them.

I chose a couple pretty 6x6 EP papers for the background and matted them on charcoal cardstock. I stamped a sentiment in the upper right corner and added several gemstones.

I finished the inside by stamping a simple sentiment and matting the panel on charcoal cardstock.

  • GKD Pure Luxury White and Charcoal Brown cardstock
  • Echo Park Victoria Gardens 6x6 papers
  • ColorInk Bloomy Watering Can digital image
  • Copics: YG61/63, RV13, C3/5, R85/89, Y06
  • Clear Wink of Stella
  • GKD Lots of Lines stamp set (front sentiment)
  • GKD I Appreciate You stamp duo (inside sentiment)
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Spellbinders Classic Circles die
  • Tags from stash
  • Dark pink ribbon
  • Imaginisce green gemstones

Well, that's it for now. Hope you've found a little inspiration to create a tag project for our challenge this time! And be sure to check out all the fun digis over at ColorInk! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
