Finally, The Tags I Made For Amber's Party

As I have been promising, I am finally showing the tags I made for Amber's party she hosted for me. Here is the skinny. I made one of the projects way too complicated and poor Amber and the rest of the participants spent a lot of time doing just one of the 5 tags! Agghhhh! Every person's nightmare who does any kind of demonstrations or home party, right! Thank goodness all of the fabulous ladies stayed fabulous and are still friends with me after the ordeal!!! :-) Love all of you!

So lets start with the easiest of the 5, which also happens to be the last one - as well as my least favorite. :-P.

Can you see all the lines on the label that says You Take The Cake! That is from the Big Shot plates. We used it so many times, even though my plates were brand new, the lines showed up from the previous dies that were cut out. I actually didn't mind it, thought it gave it kind of a fun texture.

Here are the details: {All Supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight

Stamps - Party Hearty

Inks - Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight

Dies - Lots Of Tags Sizzlets 4 pack

Onto Tag Number Two....

Looks like the little half pearl that was on the flower on the bird cage fell off before I took the picture. This was my second favorite tag that we made. One thing about this stamp set. The pole for the cages is pretty long. It actually takes up most of the height of the white block. What I did so I didn't have to change how I stamped it was stamp the post directly on to the block and then stamp the cage on a separate piece of white paper. Then I cut out the bird cage and glued it on top of the post covering up a lot of it. This also lets me overlap onto the patterned paper just a bit. The cage isn't hard to cut out except for the little swirls close to the top on both sides. So I didn't cut that part out! But because I am putting white paper on top of white paper, you really don't notice. At least not enough where it bothered me. I hate when things are noticeable when they don't need to be, so I was excited when I came up with solution instead.

Here are the details of the tag: {all supplies are Stampin' Up!}

Cardstock - Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

Patterned Paper - Greenhouse Gala

Stamps - Aviary {clear mount}, Birthday Bliss

Inks - Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizazz

Punches and Dies - Scallop Square bigz die, Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates {not a fan of the plates for embossing! The folders and embosslets are awesome though!}, Scallop border

Half Pearl - {not shown since fell off} from the retired Pretties Kit but are now sold all by themselves and are adhesive backed!!!!

Tag Number Three...

I liked the way this tag turned out. I knew when I was planning the class that I was going to want a big flower one at least one of the tags! As you can always tell, I am obsessed with flowers :-). And I hadn't had the die too long, so I figured I would use this one for sure. I liked that it had the center large enough to put a large circle in the middle too. The patterned paper is the paper that comes completely white with embossed images over the various sheets. Then you take a dauber, roller or some kind of tool to transfer color onto the paper, and the embossed images stay white! It is so cool! I love it!!!!

Onto Tag Number Four.....

This is my second least favorite one. Here is why. I actually think it turned out quite nice, but it really isn't my style. Although I like it just fine, it was a stretch for me only because of the plainness of it! I know, lame! But it is the way I am! :-)

Here are this tags details: {all Supplies are Stampin' Up!}

And finally!!! Tag Number Five.....

I have saved this last one for a few reasons, one it was my favorite, and two, as I mentioned above, this is the one that was the biggest pain of all of them! Almost all tags, I used the big shot on and this had a lot of pieces that needed to be die cut! Again, ladies I am so sorry :-). Hopefully you will forgive me for sure!

As you can see, lots and lots of pieces. The blue flowers and then the tag that is the tag the chair is on, is 2 of the same die. The flower, I staggered. The tag behind the chair, I cut the middle out of a diff patterned paper and layered it over the other pattern of the same tag. If you look on the chair, it shows specks over it. I watched YouTube and learned how to make my own glimmer mists!!!! So easy and so much cheaper than buying them! I will post the link if I find it!
