I'm finally getting around to doing Tim's tags. I had done the March tag, but fell behind on February's tag and January's tag hasn't materialized as a challenge yet...  I'll also b e posting my April & May tags today - BIG GRIN

I'm using one of the newest sentiment stamps released this month from Quietfire Design


The base of the manila tag was supposed to be stamped and then embossed with Tim's matching folder... I don't have that so I made my own stamp and matching embossing plate. I used the Sizzix Word Play alphabet die and die cut a layer of adhesive backed Fun Foam, adhering the negative piece to a piece of packaging plastic. PS - I've also made a positive background stamp with the drop out letters.

The embossing plate was made with two layers of manila cardstock and Sookwang tape, die cut, placing one set of letters into the openings of the above stamp, release tape removed and then a piece of packaging plastic placed down onto it, pressing down to get the sticky tape to adhere to the plastic. Gently lifting and helping to stick any pieces that didn't catch. I then stuck the 2nd layer of letters onto the first. I use a Spellbinder's Tan mat to emboss and whatever shims etc to get the right pressure.

So stamped my letters with Snow Cap acrylic dauber onto my tag (cleaned my stamp right away) then dried my tag. Sponged Distress Seedless Preserves all over. Ran my tag through to emboss and sponged Gathered Twigs lightly to accentuate the embossing.

Used the larges of the keys from a grungeboard package, sponged the Twigs all over and embossed with Judikins "Rustique Tin Can". Adhered to card with Glossy Accents.

I only have white "Honeycomb" paper, so cut out my heart, sprayed with Dylusions "Bubblegum pink", dried, adhered to a cardstock heart, then adhered pieces from a doily die cut (Cheery Lynn). Adhered to tag.

Stamped the Love Lives Here" with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Die cut the bottom border (Spellbinders "Moroccan Accents"). Sponged with my dirty brown applicator then touched with some Shaded Lilac and then with Spun Sugar. Embossed with Plum Pearl, then heated again, dropping some white embossing powder. Adhered to tag, wrapping it to the back.

Tied the brown with pink dots ribbon.
