Sweetheart Tag

Hello sweet friends -

I put away the Christmas colors and broke out the PINK to make my latest tag. It is a nice change of pace. lol.


This sweetheart of a tag features an image from CMS143 – Valentine Blueprint stamp set. I stamped the playing card on heavy white cardstock in Archival Jet Black ink. I then gave the image a wash of pink using Sakura Koi Watercolors. Once dry I spritzed the image with Picked Raspberry Distress Spray Stain. I used a manila tag to pick up the excess ink from the image and the craft mat. I liked the resulting look of the tag so much that I changed my plans from making a card to making a tag. Love when that happens!


I cut out the playing card and stitched it and a bit of designer paper to the tag. Pulled out a few fun embellishments (ribbon, flair button, and metal dots) and added them to the card. Finished by added a Chitchat Seasonal sticker and adding some baker’s twine.


Hope you enjoyed today’s project. Check back tomorrow for more inspiration featuring new stamps from Taylored Expressions.
