12 Tags of 2012- February

Finally I got my 1st tag done for 2012.  

 As you may recall I don't have a ton of Tim stuff, infact I had no stamps, folder or die required for this tag.  Here is my version of Tims first tag of 2012...plus a bonus tag.  I'll show you how I made this tag work with almost no goodies used in Tim's tag. 

I don't have the cupid die used.  I went to the $1 Store and found these jelly cupids.  Not what I wanted but I thought I would give it a shot.  I traced the jelly's onto a cereal box and because they are jelly they kinda do ok sticking.


I found these metal hearts at the same time and thought they would be good to use instead of the honeycomb.  It was Valentines day so the LSS was out of red honeycomb.  I used a page from the dictionary and tore off stripes.  I cut the hearts by hand using a cereal box, then used spray adhesive to apply the ruffled paper. 


Instead of the border die, I used scrap ribbon.  But really any boarder punch will do if you don't have the Vintage Lace die. 

My 2nd Variation

On both tags I stamped a background stamp, SU Tres Chic inked with Snow Cap.  I embossed both tags with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and then sprayed with a pearl.  I kept the tags similar.  The ruffled heart wasn't as nice as the other one as I was learning on this heart.  But it turned out OK.

For this sentiment I wanted to use "Love Stuck" my SMS Crazy for You set.  I wanted to make mini banners.

Here are my 2 tags together.
