Let Them Eat Cake: Suzanne's Tag Set

Hello Crafty Friends!

Don't you just love all those pretty tea time images in our May Kit?
Today Suzanne creates a set of tea-time inspired tags.
Poor yourself a cuppa and enjoy!......

This is my second project with the May Kit from Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft and I have created a set of six tags in three different sizes.  The smallest tags are 12 x 6 cm, the next size up are 16 x 8 cm and the largest are 20 x 10 cm.

The two small tags

The first tag I made with the patterned papers front and back and I used one of the beautiful tea cup stickers from the May kit (7 gypsies). I then used two of the sentiment stamps so that they fit on the scalloped square diecut shape. I used the brown ink again for this sentiment embellishment.  I inked the edges in Distress Oxide (work lipstick).  To finish it off I added three pink enamel dots in the corner.

The second tag I created I used some of the patterned paper for the front and back of the tag.  I added one of the beautiful teacup stickers from the kit (7 gypsies) and made an embellishment with a small doily die and some lace and eyelash trim and a stamp from my stash (You're just my cup of tea).  I stamped this out with the brown stamp pad from the kit and inked the edges of the doily die with Distress Oxide ink (worn lipstick).  To the bottom of the tag I added a piece of pearl trim that matched the teacup nicely.

Middle sized tags
These two tags both have the patterned papers from the kit.  The green tag has been embellished with metal corner pieces that are an old gold colour.  I have then diecut the cake several times to give it dimension and added this to the tag along with a Kaisercraft oval vintage frame diecut that I have stamped on.  This stamp is from the kit and I have used the brown ink again for this.

The next tag is the white wood panel paper and I have diecut a frame and stamped the teacup image onto this and coloured it with my prismacolour pencils.  I stamped the image again on scrap cardstock and cut it out and used it as a mask before I used the worn lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the rest of the diecut.  I then spritzed this piece with water and quickly dabbed the water away.  This left the pretty speckled pattern on the white cardstock.  I added a small sentiment from my stash as well and some pink sequins and pink lace trim to the bottom.

The large tags
The pink tag is very clean and simple.  I have distressed the edges of the tag and added metal corners that I have painted with dark pink Inka Gold paint.  The letters are from my stash and I have also painted them first with gesso and then with light pink Inka Gold paint.  I die cut the cupcake with dies from my stash and added kindy glitz to the top of the cupcake to add some sparkle.

The last tag has the peeling wallpaper patterned paper on the front layered on top of another one of the papers.  The edges have all been distressed.  I used a sticker from my stash for the sentiment and layered it on white cardstock to make it pop.  I fussy cut the teacups from one of the papers and added it to the tag on top of some tulle which I have stuck on with matte gel medium.  I also added some small clear glass balls to finish it off.
