Avery Elle Stamp Highlight: Simply Tags Everyday

Hello out there!  Today I'm having fun with a set from Avery Elle that my pal Nina Yang designed.  It's called Simply Tags: Everyday and you've already seen me playing around with this set.  Like me, I'm sure you will not want to stop making tags once you get your hands on these stamps and the matching dies:)  

 


I've used the tag dies the traditional way (like here) and used them to creative a negative die cut (like here), but today I tried something a little different.  Not wild and crazy different, but just a way to get something new from a tool you already have.  To create the little gold tag frame below, I die cut the largest tag die in gold card stock.  Then I took the negative die cut and cut around it.  Instant frame!  After a bit of experimenting, I found that the flags of the set Papel Picado fit just right into the frame.  (Don't you love when that happens!)  


Thank you so, so much for stopping by!  I hope you're having a wonderful week!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
