Summer 2012 Tags: Blog Candy Time!

Hey Crafty Friends!

It is finally that time.  I have finished the sixth and final tag in the Summer 2012 Tags series.  That took long enough! ;)  What does this mean?  That soon (Friday evening) I will be picking a winner who will receive a pile of ribbon and one each of the six different tags.  So be sure to leave a comment on this post and/or on the prior tag posts.  I’ll be choosing a random winner from the comments.

But before you rush off to leave a comment check out the final tag.  Please?! :)


For this very pink set of tags I used the Enjoy Life stamp set and dies from There She Goes.  The ice cream cone and scoop of ice cream where die cut from white cardstock and then coordinating images were stamped.  The sentiment (also from the Enjoy Life stamp set) was stamped in Rich Cocoa ink on a light pink cardstock.


I thought the treat would look a bit tastier with sprinkles so I added a few pink rhinestones to the ice cream.  I did quite a bit of layering on this tag and added some dots of Liquid Pearls, a bit of sewing and some of my favorite ruffled gingham ribbon.


Much adhesive foam was sacrificed in the making of these tags. ;)  You can see the dimension below.


So what do you think of these pink treats?  Delicious?  Do you want some Neapolitan ice cream now?  I do!  Before you head for the freezer read on for details on the blog candy!  I really do appreciate all of my blog readers so this is my little way of saying thanks for stopping by. :)
