BIG SURPRISE.......not........

I told you I was going to post some more tag cards! What? What do you mean you didn't believe me and thought I would post some fantastic project? *okie rolls eyes and sighs* You guys just never listen do you?

Well you will just have to accept that the post for today is TAG CARDS AGAIN! So stop complaining and just look at the pictures and read the descriptions!

I again used the K & Company Maison stack. It just seems to go well with the tags. The flowers are Prima's and I layered two different sizes. Since I had 6 cards to make I was able to cut them in half and use only 3 of each size to make the cards. Three small pearls were added for centers. Okay go ahead and say "ooh and aah" I will wait right here....are you done yet? Then let's look at the next picture.

I think by popping up the tag it gives it more focus in the card. That and ya'll know I got a serious addiction to mounting foam. Can't get enough of it!

If you will notice the 3 ribbons on the card I will tell you how I did that. I made my card mat first, using both the patterned papers. I then used a button hole punch, Paper Studio brand I believe, and punched my holes. I cut my ribbon at an angle so it would be easier to thread through and then just tied into a knot. Now, could I have just tied ribbon in a knot and put it on the card, probably. But it really does give it a different look by doing it this way.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I use this set frequently! Especially since it works so well with the Stampin Up Word Window and Modern Label punches.

I added a strip of braiding at the bottom of the tag and then thought it needed something else so I looked on my bling pegs and found these small flowers. I did add the pearl to the middle of the flower.

Oh and guess what is coming up tomorrow!! Yep, another set of tag cards. So if ya don't like them...DON'T COME BACK! *okie falls out chair laughin*

  12. How in the world did you come up with the embellishments you used on these?

    I might have figured out that the background paper looked good with the tags but I'd never have thought about sticking all those things on there!

    I'd have been jumping off the ledge to put more than just a bow or a punch out on there! ROFLMAO!

    I'd hate to be inside your head with all that stuff rolling around in there! LOL!
