Attempting a Tag

Hi this is Cheryl. Today for my post for Flamingo Scraps I decided to attempt to make my very first tag. On Saturday I went to the Rubber Stamp Show here in Plano and the last booth that I visited was the one for Ranger. I could have camped out all afternoon, but I had my very tired Grand with me and she was ready to go. So I hung around as long as I dared and watched bits and pieces of a project or two and then we left. I love Ranger products and love Wendy Vecchi's line most of all. Her products are totally earthy and feminine, but the type of projects she makes are totally foreign to me. I am a card maker first and then a scrapbooker second.  Making tags, 3D projects, and Mixed Media is totally out of my comfort zone. But, I took notes, picked up a few things, and took a shot at it. I really don't know what anyone does afterwards with these tags. Maybe use it for a book marker? Do people collect these as someone would a ATC card? Oh well, here is my tag. There were many steps to make this, but it was really a lot of fun too! It has me wishing I had a small piece of canvas to play with now. I might get to like this! Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting Flamingo Scraps Blog today. We have a lot of fun here as we adventure with our inks, stamps, and papers.

Happy Stampin.........Cheryl


  1. Cheryl! you did much more than attempt -- this is lovely!!!

  2. Love your tag Cheryl, background came out cool! Great job!

    1. I think making these tags could get addicting!

  3. Your tag turn out wonderful Cheryl! I don't know anyone who collects tags like ATC's but I like to use mine (in various sizes) in scrapbooking. Try using a tag color cardstock for you layout and ink and stencil the edges the same as you did the tag, keeping it subtle. If you're like me, you won't do this often, but it's a nice change of pace. Plus, larger tags can be cut or punched into embellishments for cards and layouts. The same techniques work on card bases for backgrounds. The ideas are endless. Have fun!
