Hello friends! Today I have a simple tag tutorial! I love adding tags to my layouts and cards so I wanted to share my thought process on creating some great tags.
For the first tag, I wanted to use that great Heidi Swapp Minc circular stencil that comes in the My Creative Scrapbook April creative kit. I have been on a kick of watching all of the great Jennifer McGuire YouTube videos...she is amazing when it comes to stamps, inks, and stencils!! I was completely wowed when I saw her "Rotating Stencils" video (click here to see) and knew I had to try it!
I pulled out my Distress Oxide ink pads in the colors of Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick and my Moonlight White pigment ink pad. I started off with a 4" x 6" piece of smooth white cardstock and followed Jennifer's instructions from the video. I used the darker color first and ended up with the white as the top layer. After the inks were dry I cut my paper into a tag.
Here is a look at the 3 tags bases before I added embellishments...
Here is a close up of the tag that I used the Rotating Stencil technique on. I used 2 strips of washi tape on the bottom but one of the pieces I cut in half length wise. The "choose joy" piece is from the ephemera pack that comes with the kit.
The next 2 tags were just pattern papers for the base tag and embellishments from the Creative kit.
And here are the projects that I used my tags on...
I hope this tutorial gets those creative juices flowing and gets you to creating some tags of your own using any one of the beautiful Spring themed from My Creative Scrapbook.
