Hi everyone! Since Winter was pretty much replaced by Spring during its season here, Winter is taking a bit of revenge now that the Spring season is here! Yesterday, it snowed most of the day. Since it was a wet snow, accumulations weren't high. Today, it is very cold. Seems like the seasons don't know where they belong anymore!
It is no secret how much I love Pion Design papers and really don't like to cut into them! However, I did make a tag for a swap using A Day in May papers.
I began by inking the edges of a manila tag with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Next, I layered a couple of pieces of pattern paper onto the tag. Martha Stewart Smoky Quartz glitter was applied to the Spellbinders diecut doily. I cut an image from the papers, attached it to the stripe paper and adhered it with foam tape to the doily. The flowers and metal embellishment are from Recollections. The butterflies were fussy cut from the papers. The vintage button is from my stash. A bit of vintage lace trim was attached to the bottom of the tag and a seam binding bow was tied at the top.
It was a lot of fun putting this tag together. Some of you may already do this, but in order to save time, I have started to diecut quite a few different shapes to have on hand when I'm crafting. It makes the time go faster in putting together a card or tag when these items are all ready to go.
Well, that's it for me today. It's been a busy weekend, so I haven't had much time to craft. I did manage to squeeze in some time to stamp a few images to color for future cards. I hope you are having a good weekend with some crafty time. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments. Have a wonderful week ahead!
