This month at Bombshell Stamps our wonderful Guest Team Designer, Ms. January, Laura, challenged us to create a tag using our Bombshell Stamps. Well I decided that since I have two nieces getting married this year that I would get ahead of myself and make a wedding tag. I wanted it to be elegant and have a vintage feel so I went with cream and sepia for my color palette.
Bombshell set called Butterfly Dreams. I stamped the butterflies in sepia and then added Tattered Angels Pearl shimmer mist to them and pearls for their bodies. I purchased the edging and fringe just for this tag. I thought it would make it look sort of like an old fashioned beaded purse. I added a vine die cut that I received from a paper craft friend for Christmas. Pearls that I have had in my stash forever and are one of my favorite embellishments were added to each vine joining and curlicue before I added it to my tag. My tag was hand cut from cream card stock and then embossed and hit with the shimmer mist too. The Roses were made by first embossing cream card stock with a dotted Swiss embossing folder and then cut out with My Favorite Things rolled rose dies. I added shimmer mist to those too and pearl centers. I couldn't decide what to do about the leaves at first. I tried card stock punched leaves and didn't like them or ribbons. I was rooting around in my cream/white box and found these old leaf dress pins so I cut them down and added them. I think they worked out really nicely.
So one of my nieces now has a tag for a gift that I don't have yet. I guess I'll have to make a matching card for her or maybe a guest book or maybe both. I do know that she has asked for help with wedding invites.
