This Tag's for You!

Good Morning my crafty friends, Amy here, from Lil Cutie Creations.

I'm here to share a little Gift Tag I made using the newly released Whimsy Tree

I started by inking up the Whimsy Tree stamp with Archival Ink in Black onto watercolor Cardstock. I then used the Smooshing Technique (Kristina Werner does a great tutorial) to create a pretty background. 
You do this by dabbing Distress Inks (used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral here) onto acetate, spritzing with water and smooshing down to your watercolor cardstock. Just be sure to dry your paper in between layers/colors so your colors don't get muddy. :o) 
I then stamped Flourish Border with Aquamarine Archival Ink at the top of the tag and layered onto Olive green Cardstock.

For the back I used Flourish Border with Aquamarine Archival Ink and Ornament Swirl with Magenta Hue Archival Ink. I then used the "To" and "From" from the Layering Christmas Trees set in Leaf Green Archival Ink. I finished with Twine in different Olive, Yellow and Orange (to match the distress inks of the front of the tag). 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you to get Crafty today and  don't forget about our  Thanksgiving/Fall Challenge going on. If you don't have a blog - you can still enter over at our Facebook group. :o)

  1. Wow Amy.. I absolutely love the rich background colors in tag #1... perfect for Autumn!!! I have to tell you I was super excited to see the second tag where you used ornament swirl... I just bought it last month and was thinking what to make and how to go about it! It looks absolutely lovely in magenta on the tag! *Big Hugs* <3

  2. Beautiful! Love the vibrant fall colors and the smooshing effect. The new stamp is killer too. Just got mine in a happy mail today.


Woo hoo! Comment time! I totally do a little happy dance every time a new one pops up!
