What a fun treat to be bringing you this next group post from Papertrey Ink. As you may already know, the new Tiny Tag set (available for purchase on March 15th) is a sweet set with ideas from both Nichole Heady and myself...she has such a magical way of bringing ideas to life and I can't thank her enough for taking time to bring you Tiny Tags.
I will give you a little glimpse into my thought process as I create cards....rarely do I ever begin with my sentiment...I have found that from the beginning, I have always been drawn to using the stamps, paper, embellishments, and other design elements first....with a theme in mind of course....but when my card was near completion, I found that I didn't have room for the sentiment...I just had way too much fun with the other stuff....and continue to even today....so for quite a while now, I have loved snatching up a tag, stamping my sentiment on it, and hanging it from the center of the bow, flower, button, trinket pin, etc. to finish my card...which led me to this stamp set idea.
I have also found...that try as I might...I am more of a dimensional type of girl...I love how others are able to bring their creations to life while keeping their style so very clean, one dimensional, and simple...but for me, I have failed....so I keep creating in the manner that works best for me and enjoy the familiar process as I go along...the beauty of all of this, as I continually learn and remind myself, is that there is no right or wrong when it comes to art. So, I stick to dimensional cards...and love to make a sentiment pop or give it a little more attention by hanging it from a tag.
With this group post...as you go around and enjoy what the others have created with this set...I know you'll find some wonderful ideas of how to use this set in a way that suits your style of creating...these little babies are so much fun to work with ...my most favorite thing about the set without a doubt...is the coordinating Tiny Tags die, which enables you to cut out 10 different tiny tags at once...then you've got yourself a handful of tags to coordinate, stamp on, distress, embellish, and use however you'd like.
Along with the new Tiny Tags set and die, I also used the Cupcake Collection die here...more of that beautiful, beat up cardboard that I love...wish I could tell you this is the last you'll see of it, but I can't stop just yet. The cupcake is stamped with the new Background Basics: Twinkle stamp and you can catch a little glimpse of the new Postmarks paper, and Background Basics: Gingham on the card base.
Here are some fun links for you to browse through and enjoy:
