DT Ptoject # 3 by Astrid

Featuring Kaisercraft Basecoat Collection

Hello everyone, welcome and lovely to see you! Today I am showing you another project, using the left over bits of paper from my previous projects. I made a Tagalope. Don't know what a Tagalope is? Well it's an envelope for a tag, - easy....

 I started my making the envelope. For that I cut a large circle out of the Concrete paper. I happen to own the Spellbinders large circle die which I used for it, but you could just as easily draw around a plate or use a compass. You fold in the sides, then fold up. the bottom, making sure it lines up properly, and that's all there is to it.  I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then embellished it. For that,  I cut a strip of manila card stock, made puddles with Antique Linen, Bundled Sage, Picket Fence and Antiques Bronze Distress Stains on my craft sheet and swiped both this strip and a size 8 tag through this, blending the colours to match the paper. I then inked the edges with some Rusty Hinge, Bundled Sage and Walnut Stain Distress Ink and stamped the Texture Believe stamp in Sepia Archival and edged it with a punch from my stash.

If you look carefully, you can see I stamped it up-side-down by mistake, ah well, embrace imperfection lol.... I also added a Butterfly, Ideaology Pen-nib and a couple of Chit Chat Stickers
Here you can see the whole envelope without the tag in it.
Alright, now to the tag: I made the background in the same way as the strip at the bottom of the envelope. 

I then stamped the Texture 36 stamp with Distress Ink in Bundled Sage in one corner and inked over it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink
I cut a doily with another bit of the Concrete paper, stamped two Kaisercraft clear stamps to create tickets and layered them all up as shown. I stamped the word Believe from the Secret Admirer Definitions stamp on one of them.
The main sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Classics # 5 set. At the top I added a banner with some left over paper and a brad from the Prima Engraver collection and that was it.

Well hope you liked my little Tagelope. Thank you for visiting and don't forget to come back on Monday to see what Hels will have made to show you.
