Tag: Pearls!

Or the kingdom of heaven is like a jeweler
on the lookout for the finest PEARLS.   
When he found a pearl more beautiful and valuable
 than any jewel he had ever seen,
 the jeweler sold all he had and bought that PEARL,
Matthew 13 : 45,46  (The Voice)

Welcome to Thursday Totally Tags ‘n’ ATCs over at!  Every Thursday we on the Design Team do a team post featuring Tags n' ATC's.  We have a specific Theme each week featuring an element, technique or embellishment.  We all come up with something excitingly different – using various types of tools, etc. to create our projects...i.e., Cricut, CAMEO, Spellbinders, punches, stamps, paint, material, lace, inks, etc.   The sky's the limit!  The only restriction...  If we use SVG's or Digi's, we will only use those from the vast selection at PCW.  There are some changes coming for the next few summer months, so please keep track of things by visiting Melin’s blog – and checking back here often.  I’ll let You know, when I know how things will work out.

The Theme for this week’s projects is PEARLS!  I used light and airy Spring colors – Cream and Sage green. 

As I did last week, I made a larger Tag – one that fits in a #10/Business-size envelope, so it can possibly be used as a Card and not just as a Tag on a gift.  I began with a 3 ¾” x 8 ½” piece of Sage cardstock for the base.  I then cut a piece of Cream cardstock (3 ½” wide) and used a MS punch on each long side of it – mirroring the punches, so both sides were identical in pattern.  I also punched once across one of the ends.  I used a corner-rounder on all 4 corners of both pieces.  I lightly inked the Cream cardstock with Sage ink – and also the edges of the Sage cardstock.  I cut a piece of cream cardstock to fit in the middle of the Tag.  I used a border embossing folder – the Wicker pattern – and then lightly inked it, so the embossing was more prominent.  I then added Sage green pearls to the embossed piece.  I adhered that piece with foam pieces to raise it up.  I added a Sage green bow to the top.  There is plenty of room to include a sentiment and personal note on the back.

Be sure to visit Melin at MPC and sign up for her blog and Newsletters, join us on the Blog Hops at various times of the year and check there weekly to see what’s offered in her Store!  She offers Amazing Digi and Cutting Files and I’m SURE that you will find lovely items to enhance your paper-crafting projects!  As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about what or how I have done on here -  Happy Crafting!  ;-}
