When I am struggling to find a great colour combo, I often pull out a copy of homeware catalogues and look to them for inspiration. Well for this week's AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge - Say It With A Tag, I decided to use a sheet set that I have been looking at for a few weeks now. I really liked the colours that were in the pillow cases and sheets and boy am I happy I incorporated this into my tag! I will have to use this colour scheme again I think!
As I was contemplating how to go about my tag, I remembered that I had some Making Memories coasters that I had not worked with yet, so I decided that one of these would be perfect. I stamped the little flower image from Backgrounds By Design 1 in Versamark ink and embossed each one with white embossing powder. I then used the polka dot background from the same set and stamped this along the bottom in Baja Breeze ink. For the top half of the square I wanted to get a letterpress look, so I embossed it with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder reversed adding some pink rhinestones in the centres. I then matted this on some Hibiscus Burst card and adhered some Hawaiian Shores ribbon across the middle.
I stamped the Heartfelt Thanks sentiment from Jasmine's Cupcake in Melon Mambo ink and punched out a circle matting it on a larger Hibiscus Burst circle. Finally I crocheted a small white flower, sewing a button in the centre and adhering to the tag with GlossyAccents. I finished off the tag by tying some more Hawaiian Shores ribbon through the top.
This was so much fun to make and I will be making many more like this! Why not have a go at this challenge - hop on over to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog and link your creation. Be sure to check out the other tags by the rest of the design team:
