Two autumnal swap tags

After making 2 tags yesterday, I was still in the crafty mood and made both of my autumnal swap tags for October.

Both tag bases were made using cream pearlised card and stamping a Personal Impressions Chestnut leaf stamp, stamped using VersaMagic Mango Madnesschalk ink pad, Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters & Fired Brick distress inks. The tags were also edged with the Fried Brick distress ink.
This first tag was also stamped with Personal Impressions Swallows stamp using Fired Brick distress ink & the tag was embellished with coloured lace and leaf brads and finished with ribbon.

this second tag was embellished using tiny flower brads and die-cut leaves, and finished with thin red ribbon.

Two 'Back to School' swap tags

I am quite behind on my monthly themed tags for the swap on the scraboooking forum on the Do Crafts website, mainly due to poor health, but today I sat and really enjoyed making two tags for the September swap.

                    The first tag uses House Mouse decoupage.

I layered the decoupage onto Websters Pages 'Petite Papers',(a 6" paper pad which came free with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine) then onto copper pearlised card for tag base.
I embellished the tag with a Docrafts 3D tag, a leaf brad, paper scrabble letters which came free inside a craft magazine, and finished the tag with chiffon ribbon from my stash.

This second tag, I used a donated stamped image of a schoolgirl (sorry don't know the brand name) and coloured her with Promarkers. I 3D'd her onto lined floral school paper and again used the paper scrabble letters (both free in a craft magazine), then onto copper pearlised card for the tag base. I finished the tag with East of India maroon twine.

I enjoyed my crafting afternoon and aim to make some more tags tomorrow, Fi x
