For the chevron painted background, start by creating the zig zags in green.

Alternate several other colors in between.


Splatter a few specks of black.


After the watercolors dry, stamp hearts using the Hey There stamps set and some denim colored ink. Cut five strips of ribbon and attach them in the middle of the tag. Mount the die cut piece on top with foam dots, and embellish.


For the Hello tag, dab some light green watercolor on the right side of the tag in the middle. Splatter with red paint.


Allow the paint to dry a bit and stamp the Hello word from the Hey There stamp set. Cut out a word bubble from the Think Good Thoughts paper and stamp part of the Hello word on the edge. Mount on dimensional adhesive and attach to tag, layering the color wheel die cut, heart, ribbon, and ampersand. Attach the man/woman to the corner and the real life sticker to the top.

For the Autumn tag, create a "sunset" look on the background of the tag by blending two different colors of orange and yellow paint. Allow to dry.


Stitch the blue banner sticker on the left side and attach transparent letter stickers on the bottom. Layer a tree that you've die cut from cardstock along with ribbon, leaves, hearts, and a camera sticker.



Quick, easy, fun, unique, and beautiful tags made in a snap!
