With Mother's Day this coming weekend, and my children's school district honoring teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week, I have a need for a lot of tags, to put on gifts. So, today I am going to share a few tags I made using the Bold Blooms set from Becky, and the Pretty Patterns 2 set from Melanie.
Up first is a circular shaped tag using the Pretty Patterns 2 stamp set. I created the gradient pattern by taking the single stamps, and repeatedly stamping them in different inks (of the same color family). I am not sure if you know, but Gina K Designs now has custom ink pads. They are the GKD Color Companion Ink Pads, and I am in love. The three inks I used for this gradient look are, Passionate Pink, Bubblegum, Innocent Pink, and the bold black sentiment was stamped in Black Onyx.
The tag was finished off by embellishing with Gina K. buttons and ribbon.
There is nothing I love more than making a shaped tag. To me it just screams classy and professional. Classy is definitely a word I would use to describe the Bold Blooms stamp set by Becky O. More like holy beautifulness!! So, I grabbed a die cut that I had lying around, stamped the bottom of the die cut with the big flower, and colored it in using Copic markers. To finish the tag, I added some luscious black sheer ribbon with a satin edge (from GinaK).
Just a quick note/thought...Becky really outdid herself with this stamp set, I really can't get over how beautiful these flowers are!
Take a few minutes, and visit these wonderful blogs to see all of the great project the designers created for you today.
