Negative Tag Thank You

Negative Tag Thank You

Hey there! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend! Mine is nice! This morning I went to Forest Hills with Heather and Brian to pick up a bookcase for Heather from her brother’s apartment. It’s a great apartment in an older building. Nice and roomy with a great kitchen and a fantastic bathroom! We stopped and dropped off the bookcase at Heather’s and then went to All American to get lunch. I ate with Brian, Heather had to go over to George’s. After we finished Brian dropped me off at my house and I spent a little time organizing the Stampin’ Galley and then crafted for a bit. A nice quiet evening, no complaints here! Today I will do my laundry! If I say that it might actually happen! LOL! Some of you asked to see the sequin storage that I picked up yesterday. I finished adding the sequins today so here it is all full and organized!

Sequin Organization

The card that I have to share with you today is a different take on a tag. The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp On Edge Thank You Die across the top of a piece of Black 110lb and the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Die to cut out the negative tag. To see just where I wanted to put my stamped images I traced around the inside of the tag with a pencil. The flowers and leaves are from the Simon Says Stamp Flowers on My Mind Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the flowers in Simon Says Stamp Goldenlocks Ink using my MISTI and added the centers with Catkin Ink. They are cut out with the Simon Says Stamp 2 Flowers 2 Leaves Dies and arranged in the tag space so I knew where to stamp my leaves. The leaves are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf Ink and then the flowers are adhered to the card base with E-Z-Runner. I erased the pencil lines and then adhered the black piece with Foam Tape. To the center of each of the flowers I added a pearl and then scattered some Pretty Pink Posh Summer Mix, Shamrock, Marigold and Sparkling Clear Sequins on the flowers and leaves to finish the card. I really like the negative tag and the sequins and pearls give it just a little bit of sparkle and shine! I hope that you like today’s card! Thank you for your visit and I wish you all a supreme Sunday! 🙂
