October Diva Dare - Day 9

Happy Monday morning! Janelle here today with another angle on our "Tag, You're It!" challenge. But first, did you all love the new Verve Release last week?!?!?!?! The new sets and dies are such a joy to use. You just might see some tags later in this post because I couldn't resist.

Here's how I took the challenge.


I'm in love with these Verve Robots! I stamped one of the robots from Birthday Bots and colored with Copic markers. The gears in the background are stamped in matching inks with gears from the Geared Up set. The sentiment is split up by inking up the stamp and putting scotch tape over half of it and stamping the image down on paper, repeating it for the second half of the stamp. The happy is die cut with the straight flag in the Flag It die set just to go with the popped up elements on our little bot.

I played with the new release on a few tags, too. The images are perfect for making tags with patterns. Here's two styles I came up with in a jiffy.

The chalkboard tag uses Geared Up numbers, sentiment and chevron frame from Holiday Treats which are all embossed on black cardstock. A quick coloring of white chalk smudged over the whole tag finishes it off.

The kraft tags are using Holiday Treats and Geared Up. These tags were such a breeze to put together that I'm certain there will be more made up for the holidays.
