Tags Galore from Amy Yang

Hello, MFT fans! It’s Amy from Sharingnewlove, and I’m super excited to be guest designing for MFT this month. It’s such an honor to be invited again. For today, I created some fun shaker birthday and Christmas gift tags using one of my favorite new release stamp sets, Bitty Bears. Not only are these adorable bears great for making cards, but they are the perfect size for making cute tags using the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics.

To begin, I stamped and colored the images from Bitty Bears with Copic markers, and cut them with the coordinating dies. I used a white Gelly Roll pen on some of the images to add details and highlights.

To create the back panels, I die cut Bristol card stock using the solid tag from Tag Builder Blueprints 5. I distressed the panels using various Distress Oxide inks. For the Christmas tags, I added white dots with the Gelly Roll pen on the background as well as the front of the acetate to resemble snow.

I normally use foam tape for shakers but for this project, I die cut 42 tags from white card stock using the the tag die with the rectangle window. I added 7 layers to each tag and adhered them onto the back panel with Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue. With the thin borders, I thought this was a cleaner and neater way to do it.

For the front panels, I die cut white card stock using the tag with the rectangle window for the birthday tags, and a tag with two windows for the Christmas tags. I adhered trimmed acetate behind all the front panels. After adding the sequins, glitters, and some small colored images (as shown) on top of the back panels, I enclosed it by adhering the front panels.

I used the banner die from Tag Builder Blueprints 5 to die cut 6 banners and stamped the sentiment from Bitty Bears using Versamark. Next, I heat set it using silver embossing powder. I curved the sentiment stamps a little so they would match the shape of the banner. Then, I adhered the banners to the front as shown. I also glued on the die-cut circle reinforcements on all the tags. Lastly, I adhered the bears and added ribbons to complete the tags.
