MFW's Gift Tag Challenge

I have 'gifted' my daughter hundreds of tags for her Etsy shop.
She does the most amazing jewelry, mostly bridal, and with them is a handmade tag.
Fortunately business is booming, tags run out, and mommy (who loves doing them), just keeps making them!
Cath, over at Moxie Fab World, has challenged us with 'Gift Tags'.
Did I mention I LOVE making tags?
1st, a set of 4 using Tim Holtz' Dressmaker set
This dressform just screamed 'chalkboard'!
Smokey Shadow cardstock with a handmixed embossing powder (tan + pink).
Yes you can mix your embossing powder, just try it on scrap to see if you like it.
I wanted a pale blush which I didn't have, so I mixed.
Wand and Thanks from a Crafty Secrets Fairy stamp set.
Did a set of 4.
Handpleated the vintage fabric on the bottom, adding to an already statuesque tag, 7"!
Cinderella's godmother came by and sprinkled 'fairy dust' on the mulberry rose.
She and I have collabed on many-a-project!


  1. Well, this dress form tag is definitely my favorite EVER! I love it! The colors are perfect, the embossing is perfect, the placement is perfect...everything is fantastic! The dinner is served is so innovative and simply (but not really simply) adorable!

  2. This is just wonderful! I love anything "sewing" and this is perfect!

  3. I'm catching up on a few posts - all the tags are full of wonderful details, but this set is really amazing - love the TH blueprints stamps and the chalkboard technique is perfect!

  4. Wow, these are definitely a work of art! Thanks for the tip about the embossing powder - I might have to play around with that! I love the trim - just right for these tags!

  5. Hey Nancy! Thanks for linking this up to the Gift Tag Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
