Growing in Unity gals blog hop - Floral tag

If you came here from my dear friend Angela's blog you are at the right spot. If not you might want to go to the beginning of the Unity Blog Hop.
 The list is below

For my project I used 2 different Kit of the Month
Everyday Fairytale {kom 12/12} 

 I stamped the flowers on dp
I stamped the flower again on white cardstock.
 I embossed the centers with gold embossing powder.
Then I fussy cut the flowers out.

I water colored the leaves with green.
I decided to shape the flowers and since I didn't want the brown to show I stamped the flowers and leaves again on white and cut them out and glued them to the base.
I used a die from STAMPlorations to cut out the tag.
I glued the leaves down.

After I shaped the flowers I added glitter to them.
I also added glue and red marker to the berries.

 The finished tag has a silk ribbon bow.
There is a used  tea bag in between the top tag
and the bottom tag

 I hope you were inspired by my tag.
 Time now to hop to Amanda's blog

Winters Coffee Lovers Bloghop double coffee tag with a touch of silver

For this double tag, I used CUTplorations TAG O'COFFEE DIE
I cut the top tag out of paper that had vintage look. I stamped the Eiffel Tower using Unity's Everyday Fairytale set. I also stamped trees and reindeer using
I paper pieced an old MFP set called Oh Beans, fussy cut and popped up for dimension. Between the top and bottom tag I glued a used tea bag. I ran the tea bag and bottom tag through my cuttlebug using a script embossing folder. I then used metallic rub to add a touch of silver to the raised script. I finished this double tag with twine and sequins.



Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop puzzle double tags

For these three tags, I cut out two tags for each "double tag" using
The top tags were cut from a distressed designer paper that I stamped coffee rings onto. The bottom tags were cut from plain kraft cardstock. I paper pieced and cut out cups using an old MFP set called Oh Beans. I used the same dp to cover a puzzle piece. Ribbons, and Sentiments are a little different on each card. On the bottom tags, I stamped the Eifel tower from Unity's Everyday Fairytale set. The snowflakes are a little different on each double tag, but all have little sequins in the centers.


Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Cafe Winter Mug

I made this CAFE double tag. The Eifel tower is from Unity's Everyday Fairytale set.

 The giant mug and delicate snowflakes is from a STAMPlorations set called

 The double tags (one is partially hidden by the giant mug) were made using CUTplorations
I heat embossed the snowflakes with silver embossing powder. I really like how the little red sequins look in the centers of the snowflakes.

Time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

I made this coffee themed gift tag. I used 3 different stamp sets from 3 different companies. I used the Eifel Tower stamp from Unity's Everyday Fairytale set. The coffee cup was from an old MFP set called Oh Beans and the cute little reindeer stamp is from a STAMPlorations set called
 to cut out the tags  Just under the first tag is a flattened used tea bag on top of a layer of cheese cloth. They both add dimension and texture to my tag.
I have an old jigsaw puzzle that was missing a few pieces. It is fun to cover the pieces of the puzzle with matching designer paper to use as an embellishment. I also used a snowflake die and faux scrabble tiles along with ribbon and twine to finish off this tag.
