Tag of the Month

Hello and Happy Monday Morning! Hope you all had a great weekend. This past weekend was National Scrapbook Weekend in the crafting industry. I wasn't able to attend any local crops but I did spend time in my studio on several projects. I finished a tag for the Tag of the Month feature on my blog. I used a Julie Nutting Doll Stamp and some papers  and embellishments from Little Yellow Bicycle's "Poppy" collection. I focused on the teal and orange elements in the collection to give my tag a springy feel - much needed after a rough New England winter!
I used another ADORABLE Julie Nutting doll stamp in my growing collection of these fun stamps. (I have 16 of her stamps ...) This cutie is "Megan". I love her sassy pose and her boots. Here's my tag ...
 
  
The cardstock stickers that coordinate with the collection are so bright and cheery.  I clustered several stickers along the side of the tag. The subtle white script stamping in the background, on the bird and her skirt was done by painting gesso on the back of a script stamp and stamping directly onto the tag.
 
 
I hand cut a few banners out of the papers and added them to the tag, along with a cute charm and some pretty white ribbon ... 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back with more projects soon. Have a great week!
