12 Tags of 2015 - June

Hello everyone! I'm here to show my take on Tim's June Tag for 12 Tags of 2015! His tag was so fun, didn't you think?!! practical to be used to give gift cards...LOVE that! The man is so inspiring! So inspiring that I made three!
Since I've already used the Coffee Cup die on another project,  I thought I'd go with the Tea Time die this time. The red is for me and the other two are gifts.
I misted with both Antique Linen and Pumice Stone Distress Spray Stains from Ranger.
So I cheated a lot. I only had one custom pad, so I just inked on the colors for the other two tags. Guess what's on my wish list now?!!
I die cut the stick burlap from the Tattered Doily die, and the bottom of the tags as well. What a cool die! I used one of the pieces from inside the die on the tea bag tag...the little flower shape. Using trash is great!!!
I die cut the tea cups with Manila.
One of the cups and the saucers for each tag were painted with Distress, dried, and then inked. I also used a Frayed Burlap Marker to outline a little.
I wanted a granite ware look (Thanks Wendy Vecchi for the inspiration!) so I added drops of Picket Fence paint with a paintbrush. Messy goodness!
I stenciled in the rest of the tea cups with the Layered Stencils. It was hard to choose which ones to use.
I fishtail cut the wooden spoons, inked them, and added the Hashtag sentiments. I stapled on string to the tea bag tags, and tied Jute Ribbon around each tag. I also painted in the Typed Tokens for each tag.

Thanks so much for looking and for all the comments! If you haven't gotten the chance to look at all the entries, I suggest you do. They are wonderful!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
