Hello, fellow Craft Hoarders! And welcome to another support group meeting of the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog! The theme this time around is Tag, You’re it! So without further ado, let’s get the details on Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge 11!
Challenge #11 Tag, You’re It!
Use a tag on your project. Create a handmade gift tag. Create a tag mini album. Add tags to your scrapbook layout or your card. You may use some hoarded tag-shaped packaging or you may cut tags from scrap paper using a die cut template. Maybe you hoard shipping tags of all sizes. As long as your project contains some sort of tag, you will meet the requirements to play along!

I had a really good time playing with my Spectrum Noir re-inkers for this project. Take a look:
I used my Tim Holtz tag die to create a tag from glossy cardstock. I used the eyedropper from my re-inkers to randomly apply “blobs” of the BT and DG ink refills onto the tag. Then, I used a blending tool to spread the ink out, used my Blender Pen to blend and shade the ink, and let it dry. Which only takes a second. Next, I stamped a doily image in white pigment ink and embossed with super fine embossing powder. I stamped the lady’s face in Jet Black archival ink from Ranger and heat embossed with super fine embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment onto an extra bit of cardstock and heat embossed it as well.
I dripped the alcohol ink into the printed portion of this metal tag and then colored the tag with one of my BT markers. The ribbon is Cream Seam Binding from RRR. I put it in a baggie, dropped some alcohol ink in there and scrunched it around to color the ribbon to match the tag. Then I just tied it into a shabby bow. The side of the card was wrapped with Iridescent White Metallic String.
The card is a 5″ x 7″ side fold made from pale green cardstock. The vellum was run through a Basketweave embossing folder and secured with Zip-Dry paper glue, as were the sequins.
