this is the tag
that hangs on the bag
that's part of the gift-set
that i cannot show yet!
why not? 'cause the gift-set... (which is destined for lovely husband jeff's mother, whose 75th birthday party is tomorrow!) ...is my big project for the caardvarks' "in the studio" blog hop next week sponsored by gcd studios. luckily i am on the team for the first day, tuesday september 15th, because i don't think i could wait much longer to show it off! this tag is a sort of a preview, though, since i've used scraps leftover from making the gift-set itself.
the center of the tag, which features a custom stamped phrase encircling a delicious paper-pieced cupcake, was made using one of my cool new justrite stampers! i ♥LOVE♥ that i can make tags, stickers, emblems and seals especially for my intended recipient and have them look so fancy and "official" like i had them custom printed! i'll be showing some off other justrite stamps during THEIR big font mega blog hop, which also happens to take place next week!
the back of the tag features thickers that were part of the studio calico kit i used to make ALL EIGHT of my cards for caardvarks' upcoming seven-day sketchfest. that's all i'm allowed to tell you so far, but you will definitely want to stay tuned for that because i have seen some of the other dts' cards...and trust me...they'll blow you away!!!
so to sum up: i think you'll pretty much want to hang out on t'internet ALL NEXT WEEK because there'll be waaaaaaaaaay more fun...and inspiration...and prizes (!!!) than you will want to miss! :)
