Circle Tag Technique!

Circle Tag Technique!

Hi everyone! Michele Boyer here with you today sharing two cards using Queen & Company’s new Happy Harvest patterned paper as well as new Word Dies. 

 Happy Harvest is a lovely collection of fall themed patterns. I used the lighter paper as a background, stripes for the “pumpkins” and brown and green for stems and leaves. I used the circle tag die to create the tag as well as the plain circular frames. Here’s how I perfectly removed the tag loop on the left and right pumpkins: 

First, die-cut the tag shape from striped paper. I hung the die off the edge of the paper since I didn’t need the whole loop.

Once the tag is die-cut, carefully place the paper back into the die, face down, with the extra loop area at the bottom. (That part could be along any side, just not at the top as that is the area we want to cleanly remove.)

Run the tag/die through the die-cutting machine a second time. The extra loop area is now perfectly removed. 

Inside the shaker, I placed new Gem Toppings mixed with circular Wood Toppings and orange Pops. Once the shaker and additional pumpkins were created and assembled, I tied on a bit of hemp cord, added a few new orange Bubbles, and new die-cut sentiment word “happy.” “Autumn” was stamped from the Windows Shaped Shaker kit stamp set.

Next, I used Happy Harvest papers, new sentiment dies and Tag Shaped Shaker kit to create a fun fall birthday greeting. 

Inside the shaker, I sprinkled new Gems Toppings and gold and green Rubble. The new sentiment dies were used with brown patterned paper from Happy Harvest.  As a finishing touch, I adhered a few yellow Bubbles and then three tiny Gems around the sentiment. New Gems are perfect as tiny embellishments and easy to adhere as the backs are flat. I used Sheer Glue to adhere.
