Time again for another Impression Obsession Design Team Challenge! This time the theme was "tags." I thought it would be fun to make a card with a tag as well as some mini tags in time for the upcoming holiday season.
For my fall tag card, I ran some cream paper through an Accu-Cut machine to cut out my tag. I then stamped a maple leaf repeatedly over the tag using yellow, orange, and red inks. To finish the tag, I sponged some yellow ink and lightly splattered some brown paint so that the tag wasn't so stark in color. To complete the card, I layered the tag onto brown paper, added a leaf border, and popped a saying up on top of the tag.
After making the card, I decided to make some quick and easy tags for my holiday presents. If you are like me, you might be planning to make your own gifts this year. Adding a handmade tag to your gift is a great way to embellish your present.
For my three mini tags, I used one of my favorite IO sets called "handmade." For the left and right tags, I simply stamped an image in black ink onto an office tag. I don't think you can get any easier than that! The right tag was embellished with a rhinestone heart, so that did add an extra 10 seconds to the project. :) For the center tag, I stamped my saying in the center and added a flourish around the edges. To finish the center tag, I added some rhinestones and some red Stickles to the flourishes. I decided I liked the extra bling on the card.

Well, I'm off to bed. It was a late night for me. I was lucky enough to have the chance to go into DC tonight and see Jason Mraz. He is definitely one of my favorite artists. I had a fantastic time at the concert even though the person behind me spilled a glass of wine down my back. At least it was white! In case you need a little Mraz fix today, I am including a link to his "I'm Yours" video. Jason Rocks!!
