Spring Banner

It's a beautiful day here in Texas - sunny again and still cool - a great start for the week!

Here's one more project from last Monday's art day - a spring banner made with dyed tags. We had packets of various spring images which were adhered to the tags along with flowers, brads, ribbon, buttons, whatever we wanted. The scalloped ovals had computer-generated letters, but I added the K&Co patterned chipboard letters when I got home. Another simple project.

And this is the make-and-take that we offered at the Open House last week. It uses Heidi Swapp's new Invisibles - awesome new products. This tag was diecut from the lightweight Invisibles chipboard which comes in white with an embossed design. You can use just about any medium over this and the design resists it, giving you a white design on a colored background. The line also includes cardstock, alphabet stickers and peel-and-stick punch-out chipboard shapes. I love this stuff! Here I inked the tag with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, the heart with Fired Brick, and stamped the cardstock rectangle with Brushed Corduroy. Quick and easy. You can see the various designs available. I can see so many possibilities for this!
