OWH Midweek Throwdown: Tags & Twine


  • Stamp – Hero Arts “Year Round Sentiments”
  • Patterned paper – My Mind’s Eye “Dolled Up” 6 X 6″ paper pad
  • Die cuts made with Hero Arts “Frame Cuts: Rectangle Frame” set
  • Baker’s Twine – Doodlebug Designs and American Crafts
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I made this card for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown: Tags ‘n Twine.” I used the card sketch for Day 90 at 365 Cards for design inspiration. I created the tag by applying Ranger Distress inks (Weathered Wood and Scattered Straw). I then spattered it with water for a little visual interest, edged it with the same blue ink I stamped the sentiment with, and then added the baker’s twine. The distressed look of the tag worked well with the patterned paper I chose for the background. I love the die cuts I made with the Hero Arts die! I’m going to have to play with those chevrons some more! Thanks for stopping by today.
