Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs - Designer Challenge Tags & More

Hi and welcome!!!

I’m excited to share my very first Elizabeth Craft Designs (ECD) project for my very first Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge!

The theme for this month is ‘Tags & More’. Tags & More is a series of eight Elizabeth Craft Designs steel cutting die sets that allow you to cut and embellish your own tags. Please visit the ECD blog to see all the amazing projects from my fellow Design Team members and to get an even better idea of what can be done with the cool Tags & More die sets!

The wonderful thing about these wafer-thin tag cutting dies is that only the width of the tag is fixed. The height of each tag is up to your own preferences: you can make them as tall or as short as you want. Each Tags & More set also comes with a custom die overlay and a couple of accessories like shaped hole reinforcers and corners.

Because this was the very first project I created with my brand spanking new ECD supplies, my idea was to just start with test driving all the different die sets I had received and go on from there!

I decided to die-cut all my shapes out of watercolour paper. There is ECD watercolour paper available, but the size isn’t large enough for the largest tag shape, so keep in mind that you will need another brand of watercolour paper for the largest dies!

Steps for my trio of tags:

There really is no rhyme or reason to how I added the spray ink to the tags… I was just playing ;-). But here are some spray ink tips:

I hope you enjoyed my little show and tell and please don’t hesitate to share your artsy Tags & More creations. You can simply link up in the comments below. I would love to see!
