MIM: Tags from Dies

I love when technique tutorials show you new ways to use things.  I went to a stamping conference once upon a time and one of the classes was 20 things you can do with markers.  The presenter said you should be able to come up with 10-20 things that you can do with something to make sure that you aren't just impulse buying.  I found that to be sage advice.  One day I will follow it :D

So at least now I have another thing I can do with my dies ... make tags !!

I actually made a couple of different ones because they were so stinkin' simple:
First up is a snowflake tag for my nephew.  I decided to go grungy for his birthday card and present tag this year.  I first cut the snowflake with the fold, then a full one.  On the full one I spritzed with Silver Foil, Blue, and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  I then over-stamped with the Grunge Me set using True Black
 See the sparkles ... so shiny, but also "boy" since its graffiti :)
 The second tag is super simple, I used Tag Sale 5, Background Basics: Circles and In the Meadow.  I offset the full tag a little to show the white underneath.

Thanks for stopping!

  2. Oh, I really like both of these. I think I need that circles set. It looks great in white on the blue.
