DOODLE STAMPS & CUTS - TAGS | with Shellye

What happens when you take assorted Doodlebug Stamps & Dies and combine them with plain kraft tags and some coloring? A delightful collection of tags for any occasion!
To begin, I sorted through the various sets of stamps and chose those that wouldn't be too busy as a background.  Next, I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Ink onto pre-cut kraft tags. I find that colored pencils (I used Prismacolor w/ a colorless blender) work beautifully on kraft.  For extra whimsy, I also used a white gel pen on a few of the tags!
After completing the tag backgrounds I moved onto stamping images to layer onto the tags. As you can see, some colored and stamped nicely and some didn't LOL! My process included selecting some of my favorite images, so not all of them were used for this project.  
For the larger background images, I decided to stamp only two or three times. And some images, such as the "love you" heart, was simply stamped without anything else added to it!

If you'll notice the nest that the two birds are sitting on...that's the crescent moon stamp!  It's so much fun to see how all  of the various images can be layered together.
For a few of tags I used some of the larger, basic-shaped dies to create little backdrops for the colored images.  Below, an upside-down heart was used!
After adding the die-cut images with foam adhesive, I went back and stamped sentiments that were attached to the tags.  Again, it was fun to sort through the stamp collections and find just the right greeting for each one!

Lastly, enamel shapes and sprinkles, along with a chunky twine hanger were given to each!
The tags can be added to gift bags, lunch boxes, card fronts or even used as ornaments.  
I hope that you'll give them a try!
