Hello there everyone! So glad you’re here today. It’s #tagtimesaturday and today I’m playing with a variety of fun products from Heffy Doodle and layering some tags together for a fun and full look. I’m beyond happy with how today’s project turned out and hope my daughter loves it too!
I started this project by choosing a tag shape from the Tiny Tag Trio dies. I cut one from white cardstock knowing I would use it for a backer but could use it for layout in the mean time. Then I chose a sentiment from Very Vertical Greetings stamps and eventually landed on the absolutely adorable chubby unicorn and clouds from Fluffy Puffy Unicorns.
With all of the elements chosen, I narrowed my color palette down to my daughter’s school colors and an accent – yellow. I stamped and colored everything with copic markers, using the coordinating dies to cut the appropriate things out. I glued the clouds to the tag and popped the unicorn up with foam squares.
I thought the hugs sentiment was lacking so I went back for more. I love these fun Pebble Sentiment stamps but there wasn’t room on the tag to add it. When I was looking at the dies for these I remembered there is one that turns them into a tag. I thought an awesome way to incorporate more to my tag is to layer them together with fun twine and ribbon.
When I stamped my pebble sentiment, I chose a light yellow/orange ink and then went over it a second time with a slightly darker ink only on the bottom. I used my finger to blend out the seam before stamping it so it’s not a harsh line.
Finally, I threaded all the layers together with different kinds of ribbon from my stash and then decided to add some finishing touches after all.
I started with stardust Stickles on the clouds and gray parts of the unicorn hair. Then I added glossy accents to the “hugs” sentiment and unicorn’s horn.
There’s just enough room to write a small message on the white tag and my daughter’s name and school is already written on the back of that one so they know where to deliver her package.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project as much as I did creating it! I get happier every time I look at it.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
