Avery Elle Guest Post - Simply Tags Everday - Love card and Shaker Tags


Hey everyone I'm here to share my last set of projects as Avery Elle's guest designer this month.

Today I created two projects using Simply Tags Everyday.

First, a card featuring the cross stitched heart stamp.  I created a quilted pattern by stamping it multiple times using three inks that graduate in color as you move away from the center.  Then I used the Love sentiment and a couple of the small hearts from the set.  There are so many possibilities with the cross stitched heart, I already have a couple other ideas for patterns to create with it!


Next, some fun shaker tags that also feature the Simply Tags coordinating dies.  To create these shakers I cut the large tag and then used the smaller one to cut a window.  Cut a second large tag, place the original tag on top and lightly pencil in the opening to help with stamp placement, and stamp your sentiment/images.


A piece of page protector was cut for the window, then foam tape was placed around the window - you need to butt the pieces together enough so that the sequins can't fall out.  Place the sequins in (it was lots of fun mixing colors as well as sequin finishes) and then add the stamped tag on as the top of the 'sandwich'.



These were so fun to make, and possibilities/variations are endless.  I could not stop making them except that I was running out of my foam tape!


Hope this gives you some great ideas for using this set.  Thanks so much to Jamie for having me this month.  It was a blast!

  14. Soooooo fabby! I thought you used my 'cross-stamp-stitch' technique for that first card- that's a lot of stamping!!!! But then I read it was a stamp- phew!! Love that you created your own design by stamping it several times! Fab!!!!!

    I love the tags- super cute shaker tags! Love love love!!!
