See You Soon Jumbo Tag

Hello, Friends!  Today is sort of a bittersweet day for me.  This is my last post as a design team member for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  While I have greatly enjoyed the past 6 months working with Bonnie and the rest of the team, my freelance business is headed for a very busy season and I realized that I will not be able to meet those deadlines if I maintain my current DT work load.  Since I am DT Leader at Crafty Secrets, and am doing creative writing for Heartfelt Creations, that left me with just one team that I could leave. So today I have a special See You Soon jumbo tag as my farewell post for RRR.

I broke out some of my favorite ribbons and embellishments for this special tag.  I layered Blue Topaz Satin Swiss Dot ribbon over my trusty 1.5″ wide Natural Jute Ribbon and topped it off with a piece of dainty Rachel white crochet lace.  This created a good foundation for my tag.

The digital stamp I used is from Crafty Secrets and is called See You Soon.  I layered this over a digital landscape scene from their Creating with Vintage Typography CD.  The Bingo card and little birdie also come from that CD.  Here’s a look at some of the details:

I think the combo of jute ribbon, satin ribbon and crochet lace makes for great texture.  I also added one of my favorite little WOC Sweetheart Blossoms and a couple WOC leaves with the button.  Of course, I secured those ribbons with Scor-Tape. The G45 metal staples was painted with Antique Linen Distress Paint to match the shabby chic feel of this tag.

Foam tabs let me add lots of dimension to the focal image. I also embossed, shaped and painted a metal butterfly from G45 and added Prima charms to the body.

And by now you know I love me some banners!

More gorgeous ribbon and flowers at the top of the tag.  I added some Stitched Sheer Satin in Ombre Blue along with another sweetheart blossom and a crochet lace bow.

And that’s really it for me this time, friends!  I want to thank Bonnie for a wonderful experience  and all the great DT ladies at Really Reasonable Ribbon, too.  I will miss all the chatter and camaraderie…but notice that the caption on this card doesn’t say “good-bye.”  It says “See You Soon!’ And I hope that I will be back from time to time to share my love for Really Reasonable Ribbon with all of you.  Thanks for all the great comments and support.   Being a designer for Really Reasonable Ribbon this past 6 months has made me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers.

    Love the tag. And I’m a Crafty Secrets fan as well and you’ve used their images wonderfully. I’m sure RRR is sorry to see you go, but it’s because of such a great reason. People see your talent and request your works. Being too busy doing what you love is wonderful!

      Kathy, I am late in reply but this is a super vintage tag. wouldn’t this be great for a young person to use as a book mark of encouragement….I just love it,even though it is a digital image.
      an not stamped and colored…. beautiful…by the way RRR ribbon is a wonderful co. I love their ribbons as well, sorry you are leaving, understand, and wish you much success with your other projects.

    I know they will miss your creativity on this team but sometimes we just have to step back and bit and “breathe”. If you get overloaded then creativity takes a hike. So take care my friend and I have to say your farewell tag is just gorgeous!

    Love this tag. Those little girls are too sweet and I Love all the textures, dimension and color you brought into this. Know it was a hard decision to leave this design team, as you have really loved it, but sooner or later, we all have to face the fact that there are only 24 hours in a day, and some of them have to be spent sleeping!

    Kathy….your farewell tag for RRR is a wonderful send off. The tag is absolutely gorgeous. I love those little children…so sweet. You are making me curious about the CD, too. Just what I need…MORE stuff! haha But the way you have used those digital stamps, the landscape background and bingo card is just beautiful. I think this is definitely up there with one of my favorite pieces you’ve done. <3 Candy

      Thank you so much, Candy! I can assure you the CD is a wonderful tool to have in your crafting kit! So many gorgeous images and bits of ephemera. And, it’s only a CD! How much room can that take up in your space? LOL!!!

    Thank you so much, Robin! I’ll continue to blog and share my projects here on Kathy by Design, so if you’re a follower, you won’t miss a thing. And, I’ll continue to create with beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon, too. I just won’t be on the team. Thanks for all your lovely support! xoxo
