Tag: SUN! 'You are the Sunshine of my life!'

This is what the Lord says to me:
    “I will remain quiet and will look on 

from my dwelling place,
like shimmering heat in the SUNSHINE,
    like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
Isaiah 18 : 4

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 SUN!  Rather than using an actual sun, I chose to use one of Melin’s lovely cut files of a Sunflower to depict the sun in a faintly cloud-kissed blue sky and I incorporated the song lyrics from a favorite Oldies tune.  I also made a Tag for the Tag, so it’s a ‘2-for-1’ Tag day!

I cut the Tag from light blue cardstock.  I inked the edges with a darker blue ink and then with gold.  I faintly inked with silver ink some scattered clouds.  I cut the Sunflower from deep golden yellow cardstock, inked lightly with brown and then gold inks.  I hand-embossed the petals to shape them for dimension, adhering them alternately with pop-dots to give more dimension.  I added a brown gem to the brown center.  I inked the green leaves with gold ink.  I typed and printed the lyric sentiment from my PSE 10 program onto cream cardstock.  I punched it out with my Tag punch.  I lightly inked it with gold ink and the edges with brown and then gold inks.  I attached it to the Tag with a brown gem brad. I added a brown ribbon loop to the top.

Here are the files I used -

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!  ;-}

Here is the FREE digi-file for this week at My Paper Crafting.  Be sure to stop over there, if you haven’t already, see all of the other creative projects, get the file, make a project of your own using a digi-file from My Paper Crafting and then link it there so we can see it, too!

Thanks for visiting here today!  I hope you take a few minutes to check all of the Tag/ATC creativeness on the other blogs, too!    Melin should have a Free File for today on her blog, also!  I’ll Update and have the file here as soon as it’s posted over there -
