Hello. I hope you are having a great week. Today I’m sharing some tags that are up on the Sunny Studios Blog using the Harvest Happiness stamp set and the coordinating dies.
I love making tags as they are quick and easy projects. We don’t have Thanksgiving in Australia, but I love the idea of taking time out to be thankful for the many blessings in our lives. Tags are a really simple way to say thank you and easy to attach to gifts such as a bunch of flowers or a treat bag filled with yummy goodness. Let’s face it, we all like being thanked!
The first two tags are very similar, except the first one has a blue watercolour wash around the wreath (Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink). I started the tags by water colouring a panel of Strathmore watercolour paper with different colours of distress ink (Festive Berries, Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon). Once dry, I used the small leaf dies from the Harvest Happiness die set, and ran them through my die cutting machine several times.
To create the wreaths, I drew a circle in pencil to act as a guide (head to the Sunny Studio blog where I show a photo of this). Before adhering the leaves into position, I stamped the sentiment.
I added some gems to the second wreath to add some shine.
This last tag was created using the negative die cut panel from the first two tags. I did have to die cut a whole lot of white leaves which I then inlaid into the panel. It was good to make a third tag with the scraps from the first two!
