I hope by now you have seen the three wonderful new Elizabeth Craft Designs Tags & More die sets. Our design team and guest designers have already posted some amazing projects on our blog using these new dies. But we though you might like to see some more and that is why we decided on the theme Tags & More for this month’s Designer Challenge.
Because it is Halloween today, I would like to start with this lovely Halloween Tag card created by Mary Prasad. Mary used the basic (main) tag shape die from Tags & More Set 2 – Deco and the Lots of Pops to create her tag card. The first picture shows the tag card open, the second shows it closed. The two leaves are holding the card closed! What a great idea! Visit Mary’s blog for more info.
From Halloween we jump to Christmas with these two beautiful projects Kelly Booth created using Tags & More Set 1 – Lace. For the first tag Kelly created a band to hold folded money, a gift certificate or letter. The background is created using Silk Microfine Glitter and the Snowflake and Outdoor Edges dies. Kelly’s second project is a fun treat bag for candy decorated with the Christmas Ornament Round Peel-offs in Gold. See instructions and full supply list at Kelly’s blog.
Raquel Mason made two Christmas tags featuring Dutch the Fox and Honey the Bear, two of the character dies by Karen Burniston. Love how Dutch turned into a reindeer and Honey into Santa. Raquel used the main tag shape die from Tags & More Set 3 – Leaves to create the tags.
The tag dies are so versatile, they can be used on flat cards like Frances Byrne did on her first project below. She also used the Season’s Greeting Stand Up Helper and the Five Part Pine. Love the color combination Red and Pink for a Christmas card. For her second project she created a tag card featuring the Cardinal Peel-off in Black. Check out Frances’ blog for more info.
The next two projects are from Debra Hensley who created a tag and a tag card. The Happy Birthday tag card opens from the side and has space inside to write a note. Debra used the Funky Cakes Peel-offs in Black and the Happy Birthday accessory die from the Happy Birthday Pop Up to decorate the front. Her second project is a beautiful fall Thank You tag. Make sure to visit Debra’s blog if you would like to know how to create the tag card and tag.
Jackie Smith made a beautiful card and two separate tags to match the card. The tags can be added to the front. For the two separate tags she used Tags & More 1 – Lace and Tags & More 2 – Deco. She also created two extra tags for the inside of the card. Different ECD dies and peel-offs were used to decorate the card and tags. You can find more info and pictures on Jackie’s blog.
Candy Spiegel created this stunning mini album using Tags & More 1 – Lace. What a great idea! She used Dutch the Fox to decorate the front of the album and some Silver/ Gold Glitter Dots Peel-offs to accent the project. Find out how to create this lovely mini album on Candy’s blog.
The next project is from Rita Edwards who used Tags & More 1 – Lace and Tags & More 3 – Leaves to create these two beautiful lollipop bags, another great idea for using the dies. The hole in the tag secures the stick on the candy! Since you can make the tags as long as you want you can score at different lengths to create both short and tall lollipop holders. Love the coloring of the pumpkins.
Karen Aicken’s first project is a gift card pocket tag tied to the handle of a gift bag. She used Tags & More 3 – Leaves and the Happy Birthday Stand Up Helper. Love the masculine colors she chose. For her second project she created a beautiful bottle hanger to hang around the neck of a beverage bottle or bottle of gourmet olive oil. Two great ideas to adapt for any occasion – Christmas, birthdays, and more. See more on Karen’s blog
The last two projects are from Kelly Booth. The first is a tag on a card featuring Tags & More 3 – Leaves and the Rose die. All elements are cut from paper Kelly created herself. It is just stunning! The second is a cute gift box for candies or a small present (lipstick, jewelry!). The front of the box is decorated with peel-offs from the Lighthouses sheet.
We hope you enjoy all of the projects our talented team made and feel inspired to create them as well! Be sure to leave comments on the blogs – we love hearing from you.
We will be back with another challenge on November 30. See you then!
