Serene Sunflowers, I think this set is just so warm and fun to use. It is a 2 step stamp set so I always like those. I used mustard as my base, old olive and chocolate to layer and very vanilla as my base for the stamping. I then used the linen background on the mustard but still shaded around the edges with chocolate ink. The little tab is the word window and then a couple brads and I thought it turned out quite nice.
Some of you ladies indicated you liked the tags and wanted to make tags of your own. But, the ideas just weren't coming fast enough for you and you wanted more ideas- so this evening I sat down and started making some more tags. I love them for one, and then I am going to use them for a tag swap that I am in with some girls and then lastly I thought I could sell them at the bazaar later this year. So, here are a few thoughts or ideas. I used perfect presentation from the hostess set but we will also be coming out with another new tag set in the holiday mini (check it out at stampinup.com). I think that I will also get this set b/c it has some SWEETNESS to it. I went with old olive and ruby red on the tags on the left, punched the circle and make it pop with a dot. Then, the blue ones I wanted to go non-traditional and they are brilliant blue and bashful blue, added a little glitter and you have a bit different looking tag. Now tell me, wouldn't you like to get a gift with these cute tags on them?
So, don't forget the tag and get working on them for the holidays girls! Have an awesome Labor Day- I am taking the boys to Cedar Point!!!!
