CCM #265 Create A Tag

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is to create a Tag.

I have used a combination of my new Polkadoodles Stay chirpy stamps and my new Julie Hickey Mini Sunflower stamps.

I have to say those Julie Hickey sentiments are very, very tiny fonts, but my do they ever stamp and emboss beautifully!!

I started with Graphic 45’s Staples range of tags and dies. The black background is one of the staples tags and the paper matted onto it and cut with the matching dies is from one of Art by Marlene’s collage papers.

Before sticking it down I embossed Julie Hickey’s Mini Sunflower in gold embossing three times. The sentiments and hearts between the two birds also came from that stamp set.

The birds and house are from Polkadoodles Stay Chirpy stamps. I stamped them onto Daler Rowney Mixed Media card and coloured them with my progresso woodless aqua pencils. The fancy tail feather on the left hand side bird and the large striped heart tucked under the right hand side bird’s wing are accessory stamps from the same set, as are the borders which I turned into long legs. I stamped both birds’ wings twice and decoupaged them onto the finished birds.

I finished off with some gold shimmer pen over certain areas, some white highlighter and fancy threads.

I am entering this into::-
