The Day After!


Oh, well, I had plans to post yesterday, they just didn't work out! I finished this tag early in the morning, 'cuz I get up reeeeally early (not just Christmas, every day off!). Then I didn't get it photographed until company left just a bit ago today! These mini images are lots of fun to work with. This is #3060 SECRET TILDA from the collection. You can find her (and many others!) here at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS.
I cut my tag using the Doohickey vintage tag die.
I cut it from some cardboard that comes with your paper so it is thin chipboard weight! We crafters don't waste a thing, do we?! You can see it's a little thick for the small holes to punch out, but I like it anyway! I stained the edges with a sponge and vintage photo ink. I stamped an old SU snowflake image around the edges in Fresh Snow ink. Then I used a black thin marker for fake stitching.
I use my Cutterbee scissors to cut out small images and that's how I cut Secret Tilda out of the Xpress card stock that she was colored on. She's colored in Blue Violet shades of copics with r81, R83 and R87 on her package.
I think she would be a great tag on a gift for a January birthday!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas day and weekend with your loved ones. It's a little sad for me when it's over. I better not dwell on it though, because with the week off I want to do some organizing at home!
Hugs, Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, Tilda looks so pretty in blue. Cute little tag, a handy thing to have for those birthdays that just seem to sneek up on you. Hope you get some down time during the holidays since you're an early riser. Nancy

Hi Cheryl, I think you did a cute job with this. I have the tag die, and I just purchased this Mini Tilda and the regular Tilda to match. I got them to use together, and the mini to use just like you did, on tags! Can't wait to use them. Hope you have a good week off! Rea
