Newton’s Nook – Sweet Treats Blog Hop

I have 2 fun tags to share with you today – a coffee version and a hot cocoa version – to customize for your recipient.

To create my tags, I started by cutting four pink tags from the Fancy Edges Tag die set. Then I cut two more of the top half from white cardstock. I inked up two of the pink ones with the Petite Hearts stencil and some pink dye ink with a blending brush.

For the coffee tag, I stamped the sentiment from Love Cafe on the white tag topper portion, then lined up the scallop border and ran it through the die cutter. I also stamped the coffee cup image in the set and some hearts from Cup of Cocoa (which we’ll use on the next tag as well) and colored everything with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and assembled my layers, popping up the images with foam squares.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to all of the hearts on the tag and the word “coffee” as well. Then I threaded pink baker’s twine through the hole and tied it to a bag of K-cups.

Switching gears to the hot cocoa tag, we need to do some simple masking. I placed the Love Cafe sentiment in my MISTI, put a sticky note over the word “coffee” and inked it up. I removed the sticky note and stamped the inked up portion of the sentiment on the tag topper. Then, I took the “It’s a HOT chocolate kind of day!” sentiment from Cup of Cocoa and did the same thing to mask off portions to only stamp “HOT chocolate” on the bottom of my tag.

I stamped mugs from Cup of Cocoa and Time for Coffee and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies for each set to cut them out and assembled my tag the same as the first one.

For finishing touches on this tag I added glossy accents to the hearts and dots on the mug. Then I also added unicorn Stickles to the whipped cream and marshmallows for a little sparkle to with with the shine.

I hope you enjoyed these fun tags and found some inspiration to create something wonderful to share with someone.
