Hi Everyone,

Hasn't this week of Verve Sneak Peeks been so much fun! For Day 5 of peeks, today the Divas are peeking samples from the awesome Tag Time stamp set and also showcasing 3 different dies! I loveeee these Vervey dies! For my project today, I decided to jump into Jackie's awesome Get Your Diva On Challenge where this month the challenge is Tag Your It - where you can either create a set of tags or to incorporate a Tag into your project! So I decided to create a set of Tag Cards using the Tag Time stamp set - where I create the sentiment "Love Big" and "Dream Big" by stamping the words together on to the tag. AND can I just say what my FAVE thing is ever?! That Julee has created a Tiny Sweet Scallop Die Set! I Love that these dies together give you not only two sizes, but an instant way to mat your little scallop dies too!- Julee ROCKS! I stamped right onto the smallest scallop die for this card set and then put it onto the stamp that has a Graph Tag in the set that was then cut out with the Tagged Rectangle Die:


Here is a closer peek at each of the Tag Cards that I made - I adhered the tags onto the wonky rectangle shape with my nesties and then created a card by cutting one more wonky rectangle and adhering the front and to an inside with an eyelet. I threaded some ribbon through the eyelet to hold the card together and then threaded the baker's twine that hold's the Tiny Sweet Scallop Die with the sentiment stamped on it. Here are some peeks at each of the Tag Cards:


I added just a wee bit off liquid pearls going around the card and also around ed punched heart and added little pearl to the center of each of the mini punched out hearts:


The bottom of the card has a prima rose on it and the leaves were hand cut and then sponged out for some definition with some Memento Rich Cocoa ink:


The cards slide and also open up - Here is a peek of the inside of the card - that reveals a little mini paper using the Notebook Paper PJ stamp. I stitched with baker's twine around the bottom to create a little pocket for the notebook paper to sit in (ohmyword, I don't think I realized how long it would take to hand stitch these pockets onto each of the tag cards - I think I am a slow hand stitcher - but I do love how it turned out :)

 It's always so munch fun to create tags - and especially using the Tag Time stamp set and the dies - it makes it even easier to cut out and adhere fun shapes together really quickly - I loved making this set of tags and can't wait to see what the rest of the Divas have created using this stamp set and dies!!! Please check out their creations here:
