Put a Tag on It!

This week's challenge over at Stampotique Designers Challenges is hosted by Kaz Broughton , whose challenge is "Tags". Here's what she had to say about it.
"I love using tags on things I make, so my challenge is simple: whatever you make, put a tag on it. You can make a tag for the challenge, but it has to have a tag on it!!"

Here's my tag using Stampotique's Stacked Cups and Barcode Text.

Stacked Cups was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto white Neenah cardstock. The image was colored with Copic markers, then fussy-cut. Small slits were added to the rims of two of the teacups.

Teacup and the navy polka-dot patterned paper from the Soho Garden 6x6 pad by American Crafts  were layered, then edged with Tea Dye Distress ink. Really old yellow paper lace from Flair Designs was added to the bottom edge. Clock printed Washi tape was layered over the paper lace, then real lace was stapled over that with my Tiny Attacher. Small QuicKutz tags were die-cut and rub-ons were added to them. Thread was used to attach the tags to two of the teacups, which were then adhered to the layered paper using dimensional foam adhesive.

The top corners of piece of cardstock were punched with a Ticket/Tag punch by Tonic and a hole was punched in the center of the top bit. The tag was edged with Tea Dye Distress ink. The image panel was adhered to the cardstock tag.

A very old Sizzix pocket tag die was used to die-cut patterned vellum. The edges of the pocket were sponged with Tea Dye Distress ink. A small label die-cut by Die-Namics was used to die-cut the vellum and a scrap of the teacup patterned paper. The Barcode Text was stamped onto the vellum with Jet Black StazOn ink. The vellum was stapled to the die-cut teacup patterned paper and a punch was used to add a slit to make the die-cut into another tag. The sentiment tag was adhered to the pocket tag die and a teabag was put into the pocket. A bit of lace was threaded through the hole in the tag. This piece was then adhered to the tag.

Six pieces of seam binding were dyed using Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, and Mustard Seed Distress reinkers and water. The dyed seam binding was dried with a heat tool and added to the sentiment tag and the top of the tag.

Thanks for visiting today!
