“I thought I would do something out of my comfort zone for today’s post……. yup, a tag!!
I pulled out one of my favorite sets to use for a male and made a tag that could go on a gift or just be handed out by it’s self. I love the look of the guitar when it is heat embossed in clear after stamping in a color over select parts. I have heat embossed the solid red parts and also added some sparkle to the white area using a glitter pen. The sentiment is also heat embossed with clear after being stamped in a bright blue. Here is a close up so hopefully you can see how fun the glitter and embossing are to use with these stamps.
Here are the stamp sets I have used today
Have a great day!! Rose”

“Hi everyone! Lisa here sharing my card and tag for National Crafting Month.
It was fun creating this card and tag gift set. Yes, I think of it as a gift as well. The ‘spools’ can easily be removed so the trim can be used by the recipient. Though, I must admit, if I received this set I don’t think I could take it apart. I would most likely display them in my craft area.
I used paper from the Vintage Floral paper pad to mat my card. The Vintage Thread stamp set creates darling ‘spools.’ In keeping with the vintage feel of the card, after I made the seam binding bow, I drenched it with water, crumbled it all up, then shaped it, and put it outside to dry.
A coordinating piece of paper from the Vintage Floral paper pad was used on the tag. To get the fancy cut on the top of the tag, I used the Fancy Label Dies 1. I placed a doily between the layers to add to the feminine feel of the tag. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Iris stamp set.
I hope you are now inspired to create a card and tag for National Crafting Month.
Thank you to Lisa and Rose for creating such lovely projects on today’s blog. We hope that you are feeling inspired to create something today! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great crafty day!
With Paper Hugs & Love, Joanna
