Botanicals for You and Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack Card Class by Stampin' Up - Tags VII

Well, I'm glad my Hubby returned home from a trip yesterday as now we are all plowed out from all that snow we got Wednesday through part of yesterday.  I do have to admit that it is so pretty out today with the sun shining full on and making the snow glisten.  It's supposed to get into the mid to high 40's for the weekend so we will probably have a big melt down.   

On my blog last week, I started sharing a Stampin' Up Botanicals for You Card Class that Stampin' Up so generously shared with us Demonstrators to use for teaching classes.  It has instructions to make 4 cards and a card box holder using SU's Botanicals for You Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set, Botanical Blooms Stamp Set, Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper, Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack and Botanical Builder Framelits Die's.  I am also going to share some envelopes, gift tags and a gift tag box holder that I designed which revolves around the design of SU's class.

So, stay tuned to my blog the rest of this week and next week to take advantage of all the cards, tags, box holders, pictures and instructions.

You've seen the cards and the card box holder now so it's on to the tags that I designed which revolve around the design of SU's class.  

Let's get started with the second tag:

I made my tags 3" x 4" and angled the top corners.  

And, Yay!!!  I used my Washi Tape now that it is all organized and I can see it out in the open.  (See my Washi Tape Organization blog post here ) - .   I used the Basic Black with tiny multi-colored flowers piece of SU's Botanical Gardens Designer Washi Tape and wrapped it around the bottom edge of my tag.

I used one of SU's Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper with the Hello Honey plaid pattern and cut it at 3" x 3 3/8", adhered it to my tag using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and trimmed off the excess paper hanging over the edges on the angles of my tag.  

I cut a piece of SU's Old Olive Cardstock 1 1/4" x 3" and adhered it to my tag just above the Washi Tape. 

I cut a piece of the tiny multi-flower pattern from SU's Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack at 1" x 3".  I stamped the sentiment in Black StazOn Ink using the thank you stamp in SU's new monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit for February called Hello Sunshine.  I then adhered the vellum centered over the Old Olive Cardstock using Mono-Multi Purpose Glue behind the letters of the sentiment only.  (You don't want to see glue showing through your vellum).  

I placed one of SU's Basic Jewel Rhinestones in the corner of the vellum and then added a tiny spot of glue behind the vellum under the rhinestone to make it a little more secure.

I die-cut one Small and one Medium Flower from SU's Botanical Builder Framelits Die's with Cajun Craze Cardstock and one Pinwheel Flower Center from SU's Basic Black Cardstock.  I adhered all 3 together using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and then adhered the flower to my tag.

I then die-cut the Small Leaf from SU's Mint Macaron Cardstock and stamped it twice; once using the Dotted Vein stamp and once using the longer Vein stamp in SU's Mint Macaron Ink.

I used my Petal Roller Tool to cup and curl the Leaf and the Flower Petals and adhered them to my tag using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I adhered one of SU's Basic Jewel Rhinestones to the center of my flower.

(I'm using yesterday's blog post picture above as I didn't take a picture of each individual tag to show the hanger portion).

I die-cut a small Flower from SU's Cajun Craze Cardstock, rolled and cupped the petals and adhered it centered to the top of my tag using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I punched a hole for my hanger at the top of my tag and through the center of the Flower using my SU 1/8" Handheld Punch.

I took a short piece of SU's Linen Thread and tied it into a loop.  I took a very long double piece of the Linen Thread, threaded it through the short piece of Linen Thread and through the hole in the tag and tied it off into a double bow. 

I just LOVE how my tags turned out and coincide with SU's Botanicals for You and Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack Card Class by Stampin' Up.  The vellum is so pretty with the Old Olive Cardstock showing through.

Thanks for visiting.  Come back Monday where I'll share the next tag that I designed using SU's Botanical Gardens Suite.

Have a great day!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
