Simplify your style

Day 2 of Tim's tags...I got a later start than I wanted but had some other things that had to be cleared off my workspace first.  Sigh. 

I didn't have any kraft resist paper but made my own using Ranger's kraft tag, Jet Black archival ink and clear embossing ink and powder.  Looks like the real deal to me! 

Again, I switched off the Christmas stamps and dies and went with the sewing theme.  Hey, the things were still on my worksurface...why not use them again?  Seeing as how this tag is sewing related I went with Tim's Vintage Lace strip die and red kraft core for my border; mini buttons replace the brads.  Instead of a greenery wreath and charm I have added green chain and a fragment charm that has a small Santa image from Tim's Seasonal Stash paper.  Instead of a burlap piece with the ribbon I opted for muslin.  Yup, I like following the leader but with my own ideas thrown in.

  1. Love this ... love your interpretation of resist paper, I think even I could manage it! Thanks for sharing

  2. Susan, how clever to make your own resist paper! LOVE it. And the dress form stamp is perfect to along with your theme. I'm loving the necklace as well.
