I’ve got an idea

Hello crafty friends -

I have a fun set of tags to share with you today. They feature the recently released Smarty Pants stamp set from Taylored Expressions (one of the sets I illustrated).


Each tag features a different critter from the set. The critters were stamped in black and colored with Copic markers before cutting out. I also stamped the light bulb image four times, colored and cut them out. The light bulb was also stamped on the designer paper before adhering the cut out ones in place. Added Glossy Accents to there glasses for another fun touch.


Cut out some blooms from cardstock using the Bloomin’ Stacklets 2 and then stamped a sentiment on each one. Assembled the pieces using a lot of foam tape, added designer paper, jute and embellishments.

Here are close ups of all four tags (first is the fox):

Hope you enjoyed these tags. Let me know which is your fave critter. I’m curious to know!
