Last month, Esther from the Crop Stop Challenge Blog had asked me to be a guest designer on the blog and as she was having a bit of difficulty finding some for this month, she asked me if I would be willing to guest design again today.  Of course, I said "yes!"  Here is my card for your inspiration:
I created my tag with a bunch of scraps from one of my favorite paper packs (alas, it is all used up now.) and a Spellbinders scalloped tag die.  I layered it with a Pierced Heart die from My Favorite Things (which happened to be in my bits and pieces stash) and then my cupcake image, colored with spectrum noir markers) and sentiment banner.   I finished the tag off with some ribbon tied in a bow using my bow-easy tool.  Since there were so many patterns/colors going on with the tag, I wanted to keep my background more neutral.  I used core-dinations white card stock embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and die cute with an MFT stitched rectangle.  Thanks for stopping by, and thanks, Esther, for inviting me back again.

Stamps: PTI "Baker's Dozen"
Dies: PTI "Baker's Dozen"; Spellbinders "Scalloped Tags"; MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle
Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing dots

Aud Sentiments #195--anything goes
ART Impressions #224--feel the love
As You Like It--favorite die and why (My favorite die would have to be this stitched rectangle from Blueprints 13--it just adds a finished touch to the second layer  and is the perfect size)
C.R.A.F.T #451--love/Valentine's
Double D Challenge--Kitchen is the heart of the home (inspired by the colors of the aprons in the upper photo and the baking theme)

How "sweet" this is - and the first thing that I saw was the ribbon and bow at the top of your tag. Just adds the finishing touch.

This is such a great way to use up those scraps we all hate to throw away. The colors you chose work so well together and the white background really lets them pop.

Thank you for joining us at Crafty Gals Corner for our Anything Goes challenge.

Brenda said...

I love that you made the tag from scraps and how better to showcase it than on a wonderful stitched rectangle. One of my most used dies also. Thanks so much for joining us at As You Like It Challenge!
