Are you making tags? This is only the fourth day of the Tag Challenge for September. Come along and join us. I’m making Christmas tags because I couldn’t resist the new Coffee Cup Tags. Honestly, WHO COULD? I didn’t realize these were meant to be tags because in the Hero Arts Winter catalog, I see these on cards. Imagine my surprise when I actually realized the name. I thought, how unoriginal I was to use these as tags. But, they’re very nice tags. Even though the dies come separate for the cup and the whipped cream on top, these are one piece tags. I’ve made 11 tags in all.
- I stamped the cups first, leaving room enough to stamp the cream on top on lots of tags (twice as many stamped as tags shown here)
- I cut the paper in coffee cup sizes.
- I die cut the cup, leaving the top of the die cut over the edge of the plate on my Cuttlebug, so the outline was cut, but not the top rim.
- I then turned the image around so the cream die (long edge) bottom hung off the plate on my Cuttlebug, so the cream was cut, but not the rim sitting on top of the cup.
And there you have the simple story of using two dies on one image for one die cut image. I haven’t use my NEON Hero Arts Inks in awhile, so I had a go with them.
