Using Tags on Handmade Cards

Using die cut tags on handmade cards + Altenew Terrific Tags + Altenew Doodle Blooms

Hello and welcome! Don’t you just love bright summery colors? I recently posted about how to make your own glitter cardstock which I then turned into tags. I decided to take it a step further, and turned two of my tags into cards.

Can you see the pretty shimmer on the tag?

I used Altenew Supplies on these cards:

Altenew Doodle Blooms + Altenew Terrific Tags

I love how bright and happy the cards turned out.

Tags are so versatile. Hang them on a wrapped gift, decorate a gift bag or box or turn the tag into a card.

I am so happy you stopped by!

Altenew Doodle Blooms + Pantone Veri Peri

Altenew Doodle Blooms stamp and dies paired with Honey Bee Square Window Trio die in a birthday card.

Hello and welcome! Altenew is celebrating Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, “Very Peri”, with an Instagram Hop.

Altenew’s Doodle Blooms Stamp and Die Set

Altenew Lavender Fields Dye Ink Blend Background + Doodle Blooms floral images + Warm and Cozy Enamel Dot.

I used Very Peri two ways: as a bold background (card 1) and as the focal color for my images (card 2 below). Veri Peri is blue with violet undertones. On my first card, I ink blended a background with Lavender Fields Dye Ink from the Shades of Purple Ink Collection. I then paired it with long time favorite Doodle Blooms Stamp and Die Set. I colored the greenery and blooms with Altenew Artist Markers Sunshine Valley Set F. I finished the card with a Warm and Cozy enamel dot for the flower’s center.

For the second card, I ink blended a background Parrot crisp dye ink. The blooms were colored with a Wisteria Artist Marker from the Water Garden Set G. I finished the card with enamel dots from the Shades of Purple collection.

Easy Mixed Media Cards

Easy Mixed Media Cards

Last week, I taught a workshop on creating Easy Mixed Media cards. The participants had never done Gel Press printing before so I guided them through the printing process.
