myStamp Box Tag

Hey everyone, are you happy it's the weekend? I certainly am. We are into the single digits until Christmas. I have calendars to finish up, cards to send out, packages to wrap and a house to clean. Yea... that last one will be the last to get done. I can guarantee that.  

So I was asked to be on the myStamp Box Design Team and today I have our first what I call all skate project, which is to make a tag. Let me tell you about my it.

It came to me as a line green tag and I was concerned because I don't really do lime green. So I started by covering the entire tag with gold distress stain by Ranger. It didn't change the color enough so I stamped and heat embossed the long stamp from the Ornamental flowers stamp set and some myStamp Box embossing powder. Then I used the Mini Alphabet-Small box to stamp my greeting onto a small piece of white cardstock with Tsukineko ink.

The leaves were cut out using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge. I scored them and distressed them to make them look like that. The paper used on the leaves is by Making Memories. The twiggy punch is by Martha Stewart, sequins with rhinestones on them are from my stash as well as the ribbon and the patterned paper strip down the right side is by Pink Paislee. 

Thanks for stopping by.
