Guest Designing -- Blessings Ink new Challenge--Tags

Hello Everyone,
Welcome!  Today's post is the second post for my Guest Designing spot on Chris' blog: Blessings Ink.

Chris is an A Muse Studios Demonstrator and hosts weekly challenges with  weekly winners and top picks.  The weekly winners are eligible for the monthly prize.   I will be posting projects for each of the weekly challenges all during the month of September.

The Theme of the current challenge is:


****Just a few Guidelines for entering  the Challenges:
 2 entry limit and no digis please!
Link your creation to your paper crafts blog, gallery (SCS or Flickr) before midnight of the following Sunday.
Use any product but please follow the challenge criteria.

Double your chances to win by using A Muse Studio products (just leave Chris a reminder in the comments please)

I stamped up a bunch of tags in a blue color scheme then added lots of trims and ribbons.  The tags are perfect to attach to a gift bag or a wrapped present.  Would be really pretty with pale blue wrapping paper!

Materials List:
Dye ink: black Memento
CS: white - cut into tags
Ribbons and Laces
Hole punch


  • Cut four tags from the white CS
  • Stamp all the images onto the tags with the different ink colors
  • Use the darker inks to distress the edges of each tag
  • Use Black dye ink to stamp the sentiment

  • Stamp a couple hearts; fussy cut one and add to tag
  • Punch holes in to tops of the tags
  • Add the ribbons
  • Add the laces

  • Stamp "All For Love" repeatedly to cover the background in the lightest ink

  • Stamp the rose on the background in the lightest ink

********Challenges For my Tag set:
Vintage Stamping: anything goes
613 Avenue: anything goes
Polkadoodles: tags
Stamping Sensations: things with wings
