Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Enchanted Mum Tag

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! I have created another Enchanted Mum project, using a fall color palette this time!

I cannot create enough tags, especially if I have a chance to use the Graphic 45 Tag Staples! The regular size tags are perfect for creating altered gift card holders. I created this beautiful tag with a pocket to hold a gift card, some cash, or a love note! {giggle}

By this time of the year, I am sick of hot weather and dream of cool, crisp days. I may as well keep dreaming, because that is NOT happening any time soon here in Southern California! I do what I can by creating with fall colors and decorating my house for fall.

Create a 5 3/4" x 3 7/8" pocket tag by covering a Graphic 45 Regular Kraft Tag with paper from the Farmers Market Paper Collection. Trim around the tag and use a 5/8" circle punch to punch a hole for the grommet. Sponge the edges of the paper with Rich Cocoa ink. 

Trim Blazing Poppy paper to 4" x 3 7/8". Use a 1 1/4" circle punch to cut a notch out of the top of the Blazing Poppy panel. Sponge the edges of the paper with Rich Cocoa ink. Attach double-sided tape to both sides and the bottom of the notched panel and adhere it to the tag, 1/2" from the bottom edge, creating a pocket. 

Wrap a length of plaid ribbon around the tag, 3 1/4" from the bottom edge. Secure the ribbon at the back of the tag. Cover the back of the tag with a 4" x 3 7/8" piece of Farmers Market paper, thus hiding the ribbon ends. 

Stamp the Enchanted Mum Cling Stamp Set two times onto ivory cardstock with Rich Cocoa ink. Color the flowers with various brown and tan chalk inks, then "dust" the edges of the petals with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. Use the Enchanted Mum Die to cut the flowers. 

Shape two large, one medium, and one small flower into one mum, as shown. (Watch THIS Video to learn how to shape the Enchanted Mums.) Use Glossy Accents to add gold micro beads to the flower center. Glue the large mum to the lower right side of the tag. 

Stamp the large leaves from the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set twice and the small leaf once onto ivory cardstock with Rich Cocoa ink. Color the leaves with green chalk inks, and then sponge a bit of Spiced Marmalade Distress ink onto the edges. Use the Delightful Daisy Die to cut out the leaves, and then shape them. Tuck the three leaves around the edges of the large mum as shown.

Stamp the birds from the Birds and Blooms Cling Stamp Set onto ivory cardstock with Rich Cocoa ink. Color two birds with chalk inks and use the Birds and Blooms Die to cut them out. Use foam adhesive to attach two birds to the flower embellishment. Tuck a few loops of antique gold burlap string under the upper left and lower right edges of the flower and glue in place. Tie a bow with plaid ribbon and attach it to the upper left edge of the tag.

Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments Cling Stamp Set onto ivory cardstock with Rich Cocoa ink. Use the Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags die to cut out the sentiment. Sponge the sentiment with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink before removing it from the die. Then, sponge the sentiment edges with Rich Cocoa ink. Use foam adhesive to attach the sentiment to the top left of the tag, lining up the hole in the sentiment tag with the grommet of the large tag. Place a decorative brad into the hole and secure. Place a gift card into the pocket.
