Oh, you know me. I couldn’t just stop at the last card I made from the Tags Tags Tags stamp set. I wanted to see if the third winter image would work on a card, too. I chose different papers, but used the same layout.
Stamp: Tags Tags Tags
Ink: Gray Granite, Real Red light Blends, Daffodil Delight dark Blends
Paper: Pool Party, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White
Accessories: Trio of Tags dies, Starburst punch
Isn’t that just adorable? I used the paper with the trees, to go along with the trees in the stamped image. I used Flirty Flamingo for the Starburst punch. Wow, the little bit of pink in the paper and the starburst really make the card feel fun and cheerful.
I did try to be careful when coloring the birds. I was mostly successful, but the little bobble on one just makes it look like the little guy has a dark patch. Which is normal for cardinals.
Look at the sparkle on the paper. I think four of the designs has it. How fun!
Oh, a note on stamping and die cutting the tags. I found that it was much easier to die cut FIRST. Use the negative space to line up the stamps in the Stamparatus (or a block). Put your die cut back into the negative space, then stamp. The way the dies are designed, it’s really hard to get the alignment just right because all three cut at the same time. Maybe you do better than I do, but I found this was a less frustrating way to create the tags. Plus, you can cut your tags in whichever color you need, and stamp whichever tag you need, too.
