Birthday, Ink Blending, Tags and Gifts

Party Animal Tags

Hello, crafty friend! Today I’m wrapping up a mini series of project tutorials featuring a birthday themed collection by Becca Bonneville for Catherine Pooler Designs. To start at the beginning of this mini series, visit THIS POST, or stick with me to see how I put this trio of tags together…

Step 1: Tag Bases

Since we have a birthday theme going for this mini series, I figured I should certainly make a set of gift tags.

To create the base for this set, I cut out two tags for each one using the Notecard Frame & Tag die set.

Step 2: Ink Blending

Just as with the shaker window card we made earlier in this series, I didn’t have room to ink blend the entire palette, so I narrowed my selection to the three primary colors.

Only the bottom and right side of this layer will show, so I didn’t bother wasting effort or ink on the upper left side.

Step 3: Stamp & Stick

Once again, I stamped smaller images from the stamp sets in light grey ink onto the top tag layer. Next, I stamped the sentiments and secured the tag layers together with eyelets before adding the animals with foam adhesive.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

If you’ve been following along through this series, then you won’t be surprised to see I then added a splattering of white pigment ink and clear shimmer ink to match the rest of our projects and create a confetti look.

Finally, a few sequins and a bit of ribbon & twine were added.

Hooray! We did it! We made it through the entire mini series. I love this set of projects so very much. They’re so colorful, yet I didn’t have to color at all! Not one marker, pencil, or brush was used, and I think that’s pretty fun. What do you think?
