By now you might have figured out that I really like making tags… and a TE Sneak Peek week just wouldn’t be complete for me if I didn’t make a new set of them!  So today, I’m using the elegant Embrace Beauty stamp set to create a set of four Thinking of You Tags. :)


I stamped one of the smaller circle images in VersaMark on Choice Snow White cardstock and heat embossed with a glittery silver embossing powder.  I then used a Circle Nestabilities die to cut out the images.  Next I used one of the smaller dies from the Fleur de Lis die set (Spellbinders) and cut out a fancy circle to mat the images on using dimensionals.  I added a Tiny Twinkle rhinestone to each point.  I matted some Stella Rose designer paper on Early Espresso cardstock, added a bit of thin silver ribbon and a couple of brads.  I then used the Keeping Tabs die (Taylored Expressions) to create a tag topper – after adhering in place I added a jumbo silver eyelet and some gray baker’s twine.


To cover up the back of the tag I cut a slightly larger rectangle from Soft Sky cardstock. To make the tag backer a bit fancier I stamped one of the larger circle images in VersaMark and then stamped the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa.  A little more foam dimensional tape and the tags were assembled!  So what do you think?  Do you like how they turned out?  :)
