Birthday Tags

A few tags I've made just in between other stuff, or as test tags for different techniques. wp-1457701365695 wp-1457701358146 wp-1457701344155    

12 Tags of 2016 – March

It's March and time for a new tag from Tim Holtz Challenge. And this time it's Textured Surfaces and Dimensional Dies it's all about. It wasn't easy since in the Textured Surfaces he used cardboard and dies... and since the only dies I had that could cut in the middle of a tag was the lady and the thread roll from Tim Holtz Sewing Room set that was the first one I made, and also the one I'm most happy with. But I figured I would try it with two other ones aswell, with the hears I first made a diecut of the heart and then cut it out with a stencil on the tag, on the other one I used Tim Holtz Gadget Gears, and as you can see it's not set up to fit perfectly on a tag, so it was a bit off. Butt still got the look I wanted. To make the tags I used the Tag and Bookplate die, it's the same size as the #8 Manilla Tag. This is my first and my favorite tag! IMG_7734 I also used Gelatos on the colorful parts, and Dylusion to color the ribbon. The "believe" metal I found on ebay. Here is all the tags and detailed pictures of all of them.

Colorful Tag!

Here comes another really colorful tag.  Here you can really see how the colors from the Drop Dead Diva Set pops out on my tag. The mushroom is all colored with the Drop Dead Diva Embossing powder, and the leaves on the top of the tag, aswell as the butterfly and the flower. It's insane how much I love these colors. Can't get enough of them. On this tag I have also used the two technique that is on the February challenge as Tim Holtz, I have used them a lot lately, since they're easy but gives such a great look. Here is some more closeups of the tag.

This month the techniques are Mono printing and Embossed Paste! I've looked at them both before, tried the mono printing but never actually got it to my liking. But hey, if you first don't succeed... Embossed Paste I've only looked at, and liked, but never tried. So that's a new one. The mono printing I've done before was with Distress Stains and Distress Paint, I think the fact that they are too fluid made it squish out more then I liked, but this time I did as he did and used the Distress Inks and then misted them with a bit of water and it worked perfectly. SOOOO pleased! And the Embossed Paste was actually pretty easy, just takes some patience since you have to wait for the medium/paste to dry before you actually use your heat tool on the embossing. But when it was done it looked amazing. IMG_7570_2 And of course since I liked it so much I made 2 tags and 2 cards with the same technique. If I like something I can't just try it one time. 😀 Tim Holtz used more brown-ish colors on most of his projects, but since I like strong bold colors I went for some really colorful creations this time! Check them out and let me know what you think!

When you get new stuff you just HAVE to try it out right away, you just can't let it lay there without seeing what it can do. So ofcours I made a few tags. IMG_7345 I so love that stamp and die from Tim Holtz, the one with the party hat and "Happy Birthday", totally my favorite. And of course I've used Tim Holtz stencils and Distress Paint on these. Also the Deer die from "Kort & Godt" is really cute. Here you can get a closer look on the tags.

Just a few days into the new year I got my spark back. I was sick and I wanted to do something where I didn't have to think so much, and making tags is the best way. You can just be free and add whatever you want, not having to worry about how it ends up. I love this about scrapping. Here are the tags I made my "first day back" in the new year. IMG_7331 Here are a closer look at each one of them!
