Fourth Friday Fun Challenge for November

(I know – I’m posting a little early.¬† But I don’t want to forget with all the partying going on here ūüôā¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† )

Its another 4th Friday… you know what that means… So – if you are not out there shopping… come join the fun!¬†

This month our challenge is “Tag – you’re it”.¬†

You prize?  This month its my all time favorite Kraftin Kimmie stamp РClara and the bird.

The rules – pretty simple.¬†¬† Please include only newly created projects (although feel free to combine this challenge with others out there in blogland).¬† For this month – feel free to enter as many¬†projects as you’d like.¬† Please link back to this challenge if at all possible.¬†¬† You have until midnight (EST) on Monday, Dec. 6 to enter.

To enter, just use the little froggy face at the bottom of this post to link up your creation. 

For my tag project, I created a tin full of tags.

Its no secret that I adore Eat Cake Graphics images.  I got to use a whole bunch of them to create my tags.  So fun!

The tags are small folded cards and I sized them to fit in the square tin.¬† The kraft base is 2 3/8″ by 4 3/4″ – scored in the middle.¬† Then I layered a scalloped square Spellbinders die on top.¬† The images were stamped and cut out using a smooth square die¬†and then colored with Copics.¬† I also added a little Burlap Distress ink around the edges of the white squares.¬† With the images layered with foam tape (as I did here), the tin holds 9 tags.

Some of the images I wanted to use were larger than the square.¬†¬†So I just cut and embossed my paper, and then stamped the part of the image I wanted before removing the die.¬† I find I get the best impression when I do this with a pad beneath the paper.¬† I use a sheet of¬†craft foam.¬† (Make sure you clean your die after stamping so you don’t get ink smudges on your next project).

For the tin itself, I covered the outside with a strip of kraft cardstock and then wrapped ribbon around it.  I added the sentiment from the Mr. and Mrs. Clause cling set, also cut with Spellbinders dies.  Last, I wrapped twill ribbon around the lid of the tin. 

Here are the stamp sets I used.  All of the images here come from Eat Cake Graphics (painfully cute huh?):

 

 

So that is my little project РI had a lot of fun creating it.  Hope everyone here in the US is having a fabulous Thanksgiving!
