What a FUN challenge! I decided to create a tag for each of my daughter's for Christmas this year! I thought it would be cute to pair up the ADORABLE Pure Innocence Peek A Boo along with the "No Peeking" sentiment from the Tag You're It set!
I stamped the girls in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. The dresses were paper pieced with the same patterned paper I used on the tags, Jingle from Lily Bee Designs. The tag bases were cut with the Tag You're It Die-Namics (love) and I added the striped patterned paper. The border was created with the Dainty Doily Border Die-Namics.
I stamped the sentiment, "No Peeking" onto a panel cut with the horizontal die in the Layered Label Die-Namics. I tucked this under a rosette cut from patterned paper with the 1/4 Rosette Die-Namics. I then "fussy cut" out the girls and popped them up on top of the rosettes. I added pearls to their dresses, the flower in their hair, and onto the striped panel on the tags. A simple eyelet and twine finish them off.
Here is a look at the two together:
And a closeup of one of them:
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my tags:
