A Variation and Some Tags

I was talking to Laura at my Hostess Club on Monday night. We were looking at all the pretty tags that come with TAC's Soar With It Collection paper packs. They are so beautiful, little works of art really.

I am trying to send more cards this month. Looking at the tags with Laura gave me an idea. Why not make some simple cards that showcase the tags? I pulled out my Emma and Maggie Soar With It Collections and a pack of Birch Cardstock then got to work. These are the cards I made. The sentiment is from TAC's Blossoms and Blessings. I stamped the image with Adirondack Espresso ink. The edges are punched with my SU! eyelet edge punch. I finished the card with ribbon from the Maggie and Emma ribbon collections.

So what do you think?

I also have a variation of the Pick A Date Birthday card I blogged earlier this week. You can see the original card in this post. I wanted to show you all how versatile Pick a Date can be. The variation is made using TAC's Emma Soar With It Collection paper and Cardstock, just like the original. Isn't it cool how different the same paper pack can look? I stamped the card with the date I sent it and added a Thinking of You sentiment from Sophisticated Sentiments. It's the same card but different.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a happy stampy day!
