Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hi again from Laurie, here with a trio of tags for the current Mini Me Challenge where we are looking for your "mini" projects - think ATCs, ATC coins, tags, twinchies, etc.
For this set of tags, I used the Circus Dogs Set and the Verticle Party Hats Border stamps from Lost Coast Designs and the Happy, Sing, and Play clear stamps from Carmen's Veranda.
My background for these tags is part of a collage master board I had left over from another project. I die cut my tags from that master board and edged them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I stamped my circus dogs onto coffee stained paper with black ink and fussy cut them out. I attached them to the tags with foam tape to give them some dimension. I stamped a ball onto orange paper and cut that out for one of the dogs. (This ball stamp also comes in the Circus Dog set.) For the second dog, I stamped one of the party hats onto orange paper and cut that out. I added some white Nuvo drops to the tips on his hat. And for the third dog, I stamped the top portion of the original dog stamp onto orange paper and cut out the dog's ruffled collar and attached it atop the original stamped image.
Next I stamped the three sentiments with black ink onto white card stock. I ran it through my copier and reduced the size by 30% so they would fit better on my tags. I edged them with black ink and glued them to the bottom of each tag. Final step was to tie some yellow decorative ribbon at the top of each.
Please join us for the fun swap - so many options for mini sized projects!
