MFTeasers: Day Four!


Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!  Today is the fourth day of MFTeasers!  The big My Favorite Things release is tomorrow night!  WOOT!!

Today, I am SO excited to share with you an AMAZING Die-Namics and Stamp Set Combo...Tag You're It!  I had SO much fun with this set, and created a set of six holiday tags!  I plan on making lots more of these as time allows so by the time Christmas arrives, I am all set!  They were all REALLY easy to create!

Here is a picture of all six tags.  I created three different designs and make two of each design.  The Tag You're it Die-Namics is AMAZING...seriously...where has it been all my life?  I paired it with TONS of other Die-namics dies to create these tags!


For all the tags,  I cut the tag base using Fossil Cardstock with the Tag You're It Die-Namics.  I added some patterned paper, Wonder from Authentique, to the bottom portion of the tag (I die cut this as well).  I sponged all of the edges with Memento Potters Clay (all of the paper elements on each tag were sponged with this) and added some machine stitching to the patterned paper portion. 

For this particular tag, I cut some Wild Cherry Cardstock with the scallop circle from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics and embossed it with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I cut another piece of Fossil Cardstock using the Framed Greetings Die-Namics and stamped "No Peeking" in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Using My Favorite Felt in Puff Cloud White, I cut out snowflakes with the Let It Snowflake Die-namics.  I added a crystal in the center and attached it to the tag.  A gingham ribbon through the top completes this one.


For the next tag, I cut out some Always Artichoke cardstock using the oval from the Layered Label Die-Namics and embossed it with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I cut out Vanilla Cardstock with another die from the Layered Label Die-Namics and stamped "Only The Finest For You".  Using My Favorite Felt in Cherry On Top, I cut out hearts with the Hearts A Plenty Die-Namics, added a wood button tied with Charcoal Baker's Twine and attached it to the tag.


For my last tag (and my personal favorite), I cut a piece of Wild Cherry Cardstock, Fossil Cardstock and Vanilla Cardstock using the Sweet Stack Label Die-Namics and embossed the Fossil panel with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I stamped "Open Me" on the horizontal panel, and before attached it to the others, I added Always Artichoke cardstock cut with the Fancy Flourish Die-Namics.  After adding the sentiment panel, I just pulled the flourishes so that they laid nicely around the sentiment panel.  Love that.


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my cards today:
