LOVE TAGplorations – Day 5 – February 12, Sunday

Hi! I’m here for the 5th day of the LOVE TAGplorations event.  The event will last for 7 days, with the final day being Valentine’s Day. The STAMPlorations Girls will be showcasing love-themed or Valentine’s Day tags or projects which include tags. You can play along too!

lovetagplorations

I have a CAS, tagged, Valentine’s Day card to share with you today.

 img_7202_edited-1This makes me think of a balloon, celebrations (like the Patriots winning the Super Bowl) and my husband who is a career military officer and, in my opinion, a hero. I think that this might be his Valentine’s Day card.

 I sponged red ink onto the white card base using the Zen Hearts ARTplorations stencil.

I have a non-traditional Valentine’s Day tag to share with you today. I used some fabulous dark blue cardstock that I bought at a shop in my mother’s hometown of Dunoon, Scotland. I’d like to thank Valerie of Coleman Cards & Crafts for the excellent selection of lovely heavyweight cardstock that she keeps in stock.

 img_7221_edited-2

 I heat embossed in white, using my new Zen Hearts ARTplorations stencil.

To make the top of my tag, I did some partial die cutting using the CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Dies.

I added some red and white twine. I decided that my tag needed to wear some

itsy-bitsy teenie-weenie scarlet polka-dot washi-ni,

Image result for washi tape red polka dot

so I added a bit of that.

😉
