Smile Everyday!

Hi bloggers! Happy Saturday to you! I thought I would start off your Saturday with some sweet inspiration featuring some great stamps & dies from The Greeting Farm with a tag by Guest Designer Rachel Parys!

Here’s a bit more information about the process from the designer:

I love making tags, it’s a nice change from doing cards constantly.  I feel like there is a little more freedom since I know I won’t have to try and fit it into an envelope!  The hole at the top allows for all different types of bows, ribbons, twines, etc….

I chose to make layered flowers with the die for some fun dimension.  Crumpling up the paper before stacking the flowers gives it so much life and fullness!  I used brads in the center of these particular flowers, but they also look cute with buttons, pearls, and bling!  The sentiment that comes with this Mini Fleurs set is a great saying, and could be used for just about anything!

When I colored up Cheshire Bean, I spent A LOT of time on her hair.  With this particular type of hair, I worked each separate chunky strand individually.  It takes more time doing it this way, but I find it has the best results with the way her hair is sectioned off.

  1. The tag is adorable. I agree, you have less restraints and don’t need to worry about weight and bulk. Love the hair – I wish mine looked like that!

  2. That’s a lot of beautiful detailing on such a small bit of real estate. The sentiment says it all.

  3. Oh, this is just beautiful. I don’t have the patience to color an image like that, but I certainly love looking at this. I can see what Rachel means about coloring the hair section by section. Great tag!

  4. Wow! What a Fabulous coloring job! Your tag is Awosome! Such great bright colors! Thanks so much for sharing your amazing talent!

  6. Wow…I love to embellish and this is right up my alley. This little darling would make such an awesome little Halloween card. Stinkin’ cute!
