When Vintage Meets Shaker !! Tags with Cricut Explore Air 2 and items from my Stash
Have you ever gotten so inspired by what you are making that you ask yourself, "Honey child!! Did you make that??"
Well, I had that type of fun making these gorgeous tags!! It was truly a great project from beginning to end. For all of these tags, I used my Cricut Explore Air 2, and Design Space, as well as a combination of frilly and delicate dies from my stash.
This one was all about Vintage Charm, and thanks to my Cricut, and some tulle, I was able to easily make this into a shaker card with lots of delicate bits of glimmer and sequins. I began using oxide ink to give it a smoky weathered look. For the background I used a large Stampin' Up stamp, I added embossing enamel on the edge for a bit of texture and shine,some sparkly glitter, and free-handed some lace designs with black ink. The hat shape also got dressed up with small gems, and mulberry flowers. Lastly, some elegant touches of pearls finished off this tag.
These other darlings also took a turn getting all gussied up. I made handmade flowers with several dies, stamped the backgrounds, dressed them up with lots of added texture with vintage laces, silk trim, pearls, gems, glitter, a felt flower from Petaloo, small glass beads, and acetate, as well as rub-on images. These tags represent everything I love about being feminine, and shabby!
