Over on the SUGAR NELLIE Facebook group this Monday a new challenge was posted. It was an inspiration challenge, and here..
..is the inspiration!! STRAWBERRY DELISH! I had trouble thinking of a project inbetween drooling. It does look yummy, doesn't it?
So I decided to make a tag using My Friend Kitty.. I got the idea for making the tag using Spellbinders Nestabilities from THIS HERE talented ladies blog post! I can see this being a popular project with me, I plan on making many more, infact, when I sat down to cut these pieces out, I cut out 3 more of each for future tags! ;) Keep your eyes peeled.
I tried to create a little scene with the grass and the strawberries and butterflies. I'm so glad I got the MS grass punch, it really helps to ground images!
Here she is!! What a cutie!! Her legwarmers have got to be some of my FAVE from all the Simply Sassy stamps. They're just adorable. As for her expression - she makes me smile everytime.
That yummy strawberry ribbon is from MeiFlower Crafts, I thought it was perfect for the theme. I embossed some PTI Pure Poppy cardstock using my Candy Strip EF for the background, and punched some pink butterflies to complete the 'scene'. The rub-on is from October Afternoon which I have made into a banner and curled to add a bit more dimension.
Just like I enjoy decorating the inside of my card, I think I quite like decorating the back of tags - it finishes them off nicely. I used a sentiment and a to: and from: from some PTI sets, along with my handmade stamp.
This last picture shows the braided twine I made to serve as the string for the tag. I used lime green, red and pink bakers twine from The Ribbon Girl and attatched it with some linen thread which I threaded through the hole in the flower shaped reinforcer! :)
