I have been wanting to create a project using my latest favorite color combination: red, kraft, teal and white. So when I received the latest release from Diemond Dies and saw their fantastic Nesting Tag Die Set, I knew I wanted to use some card stock in those colors and make a sweet tag for a crafty friend, Elena (YT: Eleval Labat). She has been going through a lot, and I hoped that this tag with the “recharge your batteries” sentiment by Sticko might bring a smile to her face.

I used the three largest nesting tag dies to make the three tag base layers. Then I added a white paper doily, which I softly colored with my BG10 Copic marker to highlight the main focal image. The stamped girl is a Little Blue Button Stamps image called “Miss Lilly Tea.” What a cutie patootie, right?! I colored Miss Lilly up with the following Copic colors: Hair: E55, 57, and 59; Skin, E000, 00, and 11; Eyes: G94 and 99; Tea: E25 and 21; Cup and spoon: C1; Teal color on cup and dress: BG10 and 13; Red of bow, dress and shoes: R22 and 08.
I then rummaged through all of my crochet flowers and found some fabulous ones that coordinated perfectly with this color palette. They were all made for me by my crafty friends Brenda and Cheryl (YT: Brendahdp77 and delygirl1961, respectively). I added some small teal mulberry paper flowers on top of the smallest white crochet flowers and hot glued clear, aqua and red bling for some fun sparkle. To add a little more softness, I also added a bit of lace and small and medium pearl trims. The tassle at the top was made with delicate satin ribbon and flower lace. Lastly, I added Glossy Accents over Miss Lilly’s eyes, and over the tea cup and spoon. This is a special addition on this tag for Elena because she was the first person who told me about Glossy Accents! 🙂
