Tag: GEMS! 'You are a treasured friend'

Your fortresses will be built of RUBIES,
your gates of JEWELS, and your walls of GEMS.
Isaiah 54 : 12   (CEV)

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 GEMS!  I chose to use one of the newer Cutting Files, 'Vintage Pendant cf,'  that Melin has recently offered as the ‘base of the tag.  I decorated it with Gems and added a stamped sentiment on the back side.  There’s room for a hand-written note, also.

Here is the tag –

I cut the ‘shadow’ from Black and Gray paisley print paper.  I cut the design file from Charcoal Gray Sparkle cardstock.  I adhered them and then added the Gems.  I also added a bow to the top.  I printed the sentiment on White cardstock, cut around the words, inked the edge and adhered it to the back of the Tag.
