My Favorite Things Guest Designer Call Submission

The company My Favorite Things is having a Guest Designer Call. I am very excited to say that I have submitted for this DT call. The theme or challenge for the call is 'Play Tag'.... How Fun! I LOVE making tags especially when you have such amazing products like the My Favorite Things stamps and die-namics to work with. For this project I used the amazing a la modes- Miss You A Latte cling stamp and the Dainty Doily Die-namic. The stamp can be found HERE and the die HERE. The paper collection I used for this tag is the My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2 Rosy Love collection. I just adored the colors in this collection and thought they would look super cute with the tag I had in mind. Here are the pictures of my DT submission:

For the tag I used the Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die. I adhered the patterned paper to some medium weight chipboard then die cut the tag. I recycled a Starbucks coffee sleeve, turned it inside out and placed it around the tag to add some cohesion among my theme. I used the very detailed Dainty Doily Die-Namic with a piece of gray card stock and placed it over the coffee sleeve. I then cut out a circle with another piece of patterned paper to add dimension to the tag. 

I stamped the MFT image on white cardstock then I colored her with Copic markers. I fussy cut her out and then placed dimensional stickers to give yet some more dimension. Can you tell I like my projects to be very dimensional?!? :) How cute is this stamp! I also want to note what a good quality MFT stamps are; they are excellent.

For the detail and sentiment part of the tag I used one of the 3 sentiments the stamp collection came with. I stamped it on a piece of kraft cardstock, cut it out in a banner shape and then layered it on a piece of patterned paper and again cut that out in a banner shape. I adhered the sentiment down  and bowed it out a bit. I chose flowers and embellishments to match the papers. 

I really love how this tag turned out and hope you do as well. If you have not worked with My Favorite Things products before you should check them out. With new releases monthly and a wide variety of products you will always have items on you Wish List. I think I add more and more items weekly! :)

Please leave me some love and tell me what you think about my tag and thank you for visiting!

Hi Katie! Loving the tag and thanks for always noting the products you use. I'm awaiting the arrival of my first batch of I am roses. They add so much realistic beauty to your work, I cant wait to experiment with them. Good luck on the Guest Designer position. <3
