Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Tag Sampler

yay! it's the 2nd day of Newton's Nook Designs April Release

today, the whole DT is showcasing the ADORABLE and FUN Tag Sampler stamp set!! i love love love this set! it's perfect for ANYONE who loves to also get their paws fuzzy, as well as inky! ha!
this set coordinates PERFECTLY with the Tags Times Two Die Set!! Bonus, right!?
you can totally use this to scrapbook, create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on April 21st, right here!

for my 1st project, i created a fun card!!

i think this would be perfect to send along with a homemade project to someone!!
now - full disclaimer here: i don't knit! i used to know how to do a basic knitting stitch, but you know what say: you don't use it, you lose it! 
BUT - my good friend DOES knit, and i am going to send her this (blank!!) card so she can send it to someone with a knitted project!! so FUN! :)

ok, back to the card: i created the background by simply pressing down with my Black Soot Distress Paint dauber - INSTANT polka dots! ha!
the tag was watercolored with Ken Oliver Color Bursts and then i popped up the 'knitted' part! i finished it off with some Spectrum Noir glitter pen action! :)

for my 2nd project, i made a layout with the tags!!!

hello - rainbow colored tags are PERFECTION!! i love all things rainbow, and this makes me happy! ha ha! I used a combination of Distress Inks and Ken Oliver Color Bursts to create the watercolored tags! 

i stamped various phrases from the stamp set onto the tags, because let's face it, this layout is about the 'Mario Karts' i made for my little Menn, and they better appreciate them! ha ha!! 

I just did a little embossing paste/stencil action on the background, and then added the title and a few wood veneers to add some extra pizzazz! :)
