Hello SCT friends! It’s day three of our birthday celebration week. Scroll back through the blog posts to check out the wonderful projects and giveaways from days one and two in case you missed them! Today, we have creative team member Mindy Eggen sharing some gorgeous, magical tags with us that we know you will love! Be sure to read through the entire post so that you can find out what today’s giveaways are!
Welcome, everyone! It’s Mindy Eggen and I’m so excited to be back on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog during their birthday week with a cute birthday project to share!
I couldn’t resist this adorable new stamp set Decorate Cake from Hero Arts. It has images to create a unicorn birthday cake, and who doesn’t love a unicorn birthday cake? You also can’t have a unicorn without a rainbow. They just go hand-in-hand, right?!
Supplies | Hero Arts: Decorate Cake Stamp/Die Set, Peony Cardstock, Dove White Cardstock, Intensified Black Ink; Gina K Designs: Sparkling Crystal Crystalline Drops; Lawn Fawn: Pretty In Pink Sparkle Hemp Cord; My Favorite Things: Treat Tag, Gold Glitter Cardstock
For simplicity, I kept the design of my tags similar with only minor changes, like the color of flowers. I used my Copic markers to color the unicorn and decorative banner hanging across the cake.
I didn’t want to take away from the adorable stamped image, so I used Peony cardstock from Hero Arts, a nice soft pink. I die cut the cardstock using the Treat Tag from My Favorite Things. A fun way to add sparkle to the tag is die cutting the topper of the tag from Gold Glitter cardstock.
Even though the cardstock is light-colored, the unicorn really pops off the tag and is such a fun way to wish someone a happy birthday!
One other way to add some subtle sparkle to your tags and projects is by using the Gina K Designs Sparkling Crystal Crystalline Drops. You can see in the close-up shots how I applied it over my unicorn and banner.
The finishing touch was a soft element, the Lawn Fawn Trimmings which I added to the top. I layered mine up a few times and tied together with a small bow. The new Pretty in Pink Sparkle Hemp Cord was a perfect finishing touch as it has small strands of silver sparkle in it.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I had so much fun making these adorable tags and I may have to keep one for myself!
How gorgeous are Mindy’s tags? Now that we’ve been inspired, let’s get to the giveaways!
