Hi, and welcome to this month’s MFT Creative Construction With Blueprints Design Team Challenge! This month we’re challenged to use our Tag Builder Blueprints for our projects.
I’m not usually a big tag maker so this really WAS a challenge for me! But I must admit it was FUN so you might be seeing more tags in the future :)
For my first tag, I started by cutting Sweet Tooth card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 1 Die-namics and stamping the whole thing with Balloon Strings Background and Black Licorice dye ink. I added a strip of patterned paper from Plaid Patterns Paper Pack, cut with a die from Blueprints 17 Die-namics, popped up on foam. The sentiment is from BB Birthday Bears, stamped on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Blueprints 22 Die-namics. I cut the “happy” from Brushstroke Birthday Greetings Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on foam, added Birthday Balloons Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple card stock, Daffodil card stock, Orange Fizz card stock, and Blu Raspberry card stock and arranged them on the balloon strings. I finished off with a little gift package from BB Birthday Bears and BB Birthday Bears Die-namics, colored with Copic markers and popped up, as well.
My second card is a little more CAS but I love it just as much :) I started by cutting some Ranger watercolor paper with Tag Builder Blueprints 2 Die-namics and did a little water color wash using my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added the top of the tag, cut from Black Licorice card stock. The sentiment is from BB Birthday Bears and was stamped on a strip of Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then backed with some Sweet Tooth card stock cut with a die from Blueprints 21 Die-namics. The balloons are from BB Birthday Bears and BB Birthday Bears Die-namics, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink and also water colored with my Zigs, then popped up on foam mounting tape. The black bow was cut from Blueprints 26 Die-namics and I finished off with some baker’s twine.
And there you have my tags! Yep, I might have to make more of them—they WERE fun! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
