What do you do with a tag?

Since during grand opening weekend of the Hen House Paperie we will be doing some make-n-takes with tags, I thought I would show how you could use a tag on a card. 

The tag was made with distress stains (fired brick and wild honey) directly on the stamp (bottom flower) and then distress inks on the larger flower (fired brick) and the swirls (peeled paint).  Sponged the edges (vintage photo) and the large flower (fired brick).  Used a SU embossing folder for the background card (SU cherry cobbler), which I sponged with  a darker distress ink (walnut stain).  Mounted the tag on some brown card stock.  Stamped, punched and then sponged the sentiment with the same distress ink as the tag (vintage photo) and a touch of fired brick.  I also stained the string with some fired brick and vintage photo.


  1. Luv the color combos! You read my mind about using the tags. More please!

  2. This is SO pretty! I am excited to be on the DT with you and get to know you better! I'm your newest follower and I hope you'll be mine too! Creative blessings, Brynn
