My Cards and Tags: Heart Tags using Bo Bunny's Terrific Tag Die Set

"Love is in the air" this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  With that theme in mind, I made some layered heart tags.


I cut the tags out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper and used Sugarpea Designs' With Love die.  I laid the tags onto my 3" x 5" Gelliplate, which I'd covered with spots of acrylic paint.

I did this process with a few different color combos until each tag was covered.

You know I love me some color, but these were a little...camo-crazy-looking, so I added some white stenciling.  I decided to go with pastel tones, so I added even more white paint in addition to the stenciling.

From here, it was just a matter of cutting more tags out of text paper and patterned paper and gluing the layers together.  I also added on some hearts cut with MFT's Lots of Hearts dies, as well as other embellishments here and there.

I did add some acrylic paint to the background tags, then these tags were done!

Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

  8. I can see the gelli plate is now a good friend, Andrea! I knew you would love using it! Your pastels are fun, and all the tag layers make such a bigger impact than one tag. Maura
