Tag Swap # 1

Hi Guys,
I hope your all well!

I just want to share with you all some tags that I have made for a couple of tag swaps that I'm in. These are my first international swaps that I have been involved in and I quite enjoyed my self.

My first lot of tags that I made are for Marie's tag swap at The Pretty Paper Boutique(Marie's works is so stunning and Marie makes the most beautiful Vintage creations that are truly works of art)and the theme was 'Vintage Lady' and 'Distressing' and for a added challenge you could add lace or a doily or both, I just took on the one challenge and added a little lace lol!

I wanted to print out my Vintage Ladies onto some Glossy Paper and use some Alcohol Inks but my printer had other ideas lol so I had to make do with some Vanilla Card Stock lol!

So here's my tags~'Vintage Lady'~

and here's a pic with all the tags

I made the silk and feather lollipop flowers with some satin material and some of my smaller nesties dies.
I tried to make these flowers before and had a small little fire(I set a circle of material on fire as I was a little careless and dropped it into my scrap basket and ended with a teeny tiny fire lol)as you need to run a lighter around your satin circles and I was determined to make these and I was so happy that they turned out right lol!

I used some distressing inks in Walnut Stain and tea dye, a Prima Script Stamp, a edge distresser, Black Stazon Ink, Black Lace, Some Cream Rose Organza Ribbon and I think Prima makes this, varies ribbons from my stash, Little Black Safety Pins, Jump Rings, Love Heart Charms, some Black Tiny Pearls, Black and Silver Gems from Bella. I also used a little Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist and a Paint Brush to add a touch of colour in the ladies flowers.

I really wanted to add a few more embellishments but I left it a little plain as I was worried that they might get damaged in the post lol so I do hope the other ladies in my group like my tag, I'm a little nervous as this is about my second or third tag I have made lol!

During the week, I'll post my other tag for other swap I was in so I hope you can call back then lol!
Thanks so much for stopping by, Till next time Have a wonderful week, Take Care, Hugs and Smiles,

  2. Have mercy, Kylie! Seriously, if I saw these for sale in a boutique I would buy half a dozen. These are so gorgeous. I love that vintage lady, and so would my entire family who are avid readers and usually use silly things like gum wrappers or scraps of paper for book marks.

  3. Hiya Kylie! They turned out just so elegant! Great job!


  4. Kylie - these are gorgeous!
    If you happen to find one extra, that you just don't know what to do with, well, I'm happy to give it a home ;)

  5. Hi Kylie, Love your tags. You have done an amazing job. I had a little giggle about the small fire. Sorry. But it sounds like something I would probably do as well. *laughing*.

    Can't wait to see your next lot of tags. Do you now of anyone in Australia doing tag swaps? Could be fun! Just thinking the postage costs might be prohibitive for me for overseas swaps.

    Hope you have a lovely week.
    Cheers, Deb

  6. OMG Kylie, these are just stunning!!!!! I absolutely love them. pmsl at your story of the teeny tiny fire. You have done well with those satin lollipop flowers. Gorgeous.
