Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: "Starts with S" Tag Card using Studio Light Tag Dies and Spellbinders Sky View Pies Dies

"Beginning with S" is this week's intriguing theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I decided to make a tag card with products from some fantastic "S" Companies: Studio Light, Spellbinders and Simon Says Stamp.

I started by cutting out this tag using Strathmore Mixed Media paper, my Sizzix Big Shot, and Studio Light's tag die set (numbered as JLMM-CD192) from the Mindful Moodling line.  I folded the tag in half.  Then I cut out a pie circle from Spellbinders' Sky View Pies die set.  I smeared paint on everything and cut out a circle-frame-shape from Vicki Boutin's Color Study patterned paper.

I added some more paint to the patterned paper and layered everything onto my tag and glued it down.

It was looking decent, but I needed MORE!  I cut out a double-circle die shape using Simon Says Stamps' Circle Loops die and glued that on.  I also stamped some faux stitching on using a stamp set from Studio Light.

I cut another little piece of patterned paper (same Vicki Boutin set), folded it in half and added some paint.  This would serve as my little closure flap thing.  Then I dug up a paperclip to keep it shut and decided to glue a little text strip to the front (from Tim Holtz's Number Strips ephemera pack).  And with those final additions, this baby was done!  Here it is halfway open to give a peek of the flap and the inside.

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