Hand-Stamped and Personal, Tags, Tags, Tags

It was never really my intent to do so many tags the past few months.
They just seem to be fun.  Some are hand-stamped, some are painted, some are embossed.  Personally, I like vintage.  But, my customers have different tastes and styles they like.  It requires me to work with all kinds of images and techniques.

This tag fits on a welcome bag for a destination wedding in Hawaii.  It is a large heavy-weight piece and has aqua and pale coral flowers and green leaves hand-stamped. I also made her a matching thank you card that will have her wedding picture on the cover.  Another customer liked it so much, she wanted some of these tags in mango and aqua for her wedding in Jamaica.
This sweet baby shower tag was made very personal by adding the baby's name at the bottom.  I just love this sleeping baby on the crescent moon.  The star is embellished with a silver rhinestone.  Pretty!

This large favor tag is bold and beautiful with the peacock strutting his full tail.  Peacock blue and green cardstock make this tag pop.

I just love this vintage wishing well image.  I couldn't help but make a wedding wish tag with it.  The bride and grooms names and wedding date personalize it.  I have also done a multitude of personalized favor tags for so many brides and grooms, with chandeliers, star fish, magnolias, damask patterns, and birds.

These are some of the matching escort cards I have done too.  The magnolia card is hand-pained with gold paint in the center of each flower.  The Golden Chandelier series I did has a gorgeous metallic gold chandelier and two tone vintage colors rubbed all along the edges.  Gold metallic paper highlights the Luxe series of black damask escort cards.  Beautiful!  Lots of seashells grace both sides on the beach escort cards with its aqua colored shimmer cardstock. 

I keep all my tags in a box next to my design station.  They help inspire me.

Talk with you soon.
