Confession: I am in LOVE with the Tag, You're It stamp set. LOVE I tell you! LOL It's SO pretty, sweet, and SIMPLE. Every now and then you just need to make a quick and easy card... like this one:
The Tag, You're It stamp set includes many gorgeous, large sentiments and several polka dotted icons. For this card, I chose the Just Because sentiment, and the polka dotted strawberry. I stamped them over a newsprint patterned paper. I stamped the included polka dot frame in green around the perimeter of the tag, but it's hard to see in the picture. I staggered 2 layers of the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics die.
Check out the amazing new Fancy Flourish. I love it! I added a cool white brad (Michaels - Recollections brand) and the tiny flower from the Notched Tag Die-namics.
I had to incorporate the tag on another card, but this time I decided to do it a little differently and used shrink plastic! FYI, the best type of shrink plastic to use is the prepared type. It's WAY easier and less messy to buy is prepared (sanded). I found some frosted, prepared shrink plastic at Michaels for $6.
I used the à la modes Bundle of Baby stamp set along with the Tag, You're It stamp set. I created the flower embellishment with 2 different types of Prima flowers, the leaf die-cuts from Upsy Daisy Die-namics, a button, some twine and the Tag, You're It Die-namics die adorned with a onesie die from the Notched Tag Die-namics. The tag frame was stamped. I added the dotted lines, and a sentiment from the set. Then, I shrunk it with my heat gun and adhered the cute little onesie.
See the excessive green shading around her? It was a cover up! LOL I had recently reinked my E31 and while I was coloring some ink ceremoniously leaked down and made a BIG blob of brown ink on my paper. After cleaning it up as best as I could with my blender pen, I decided to further mask it with some darker-than-usual shading. I had spent a lot of time coloring and was trying to avoid the round file. LOL
Here is a close-up of the cute little shrinky dink tag. :)
