Creative Construction with Blueprints - Lots of Love for Blueprints
Hello, welcome to the January MFT Design Team Challenge, Creative Construction with Blueprints - Lots of Love for Blueprints! I have a couple of tags to share with you that I made with MFT’s January Release products, namely Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics and So Much Love stamp set.
For my first one, I cut the tag front from Painted Prints Smitten Paper Pack and the back from Sweet Tooth card stock, then stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice dye ink. I built my shaker tag with Heat Resistant Acetate for the window and foam mounting tape, then cut the shaker elements from Cherry Crisp card stock and Cotton Candy card stock and added some seed beads along with them.
The sentiment banner was cut from black Licorice card stock, stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before being popped up on foam. I finished off with some ribbon and baker’s twine.
My second tag also started by cutting the front from Painted Prints Smitten Paper Pack and the back from Sweet Tooth card stock, and the sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice dye ink and Wild Cherry dye ink.I added a little flag cut from Black Licorice card stock and an arrow cut from Silver Sparkle card stock with a Wild Cherry card stock heart.
Another heart was adhered to a Silver Mini Clothespin and I finished off with some crinkle ribbon and baker’s twine. I think I’ll start a campaign to bring back crinkle ribbon, what do you think? I CAN’T be the only one out there with a drawer full of it, can I? Let’s bring it back, shall we?
And that’s it for me today—thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
