Sweet Baby Gift Tags

Welcome everyone!!
It's Tracey here to share my latest project featuring gorgeous ScrapBerry's products. 

We are anticipating the birth of our first grandchild. I recently shared a card I created for the baby shower, and today I have two coordinating gift tags. 

I've combined the beautiful In Bloom and The Art of Nature Collections to coordinate with the pink and grey color scheme of the shower.

Here are some close-ups of the first tag:
I diecut the grey paper from The Art of Nature Collection into a doily and clustered gorgeous ScrapBerry's flowers on top. I just adore how pieces of different collections coordinate so perfectly. The sweet bottle cap is from the Winter Joy Collection. I've also tucked in a diadem and heart metal charms as well as chipboard from the Holiday Romance collection.

For added texture I stenciled molding paste across the tag, sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set. The chipboard and charms are painted with white gesso, then colored with a spray mist that I brushed on. The flowers and other elements are dry brushed with gesso to soften the color and highlight textures.

Of course this is a baby tag, so I just had to include a little resin teddy bear from the Kid's Fun Polymer Set. The silver swirls on the background are stamped with the Fairy Tale clear stamp. I tied a bow with ScrapBerry's white Shabby Ribbon with white and beige Wax String at the top.

 . . . and the second tag:
I've used the same lovely ScrapBerry's flowers on both tags along with the Diadem metal charms, however, on this one, I've tucked in a heart from the Floral Embroidery Crystal Stickers Decoration pack. I've also used more of the Holiday Romance Chipboard pieces.

This sweet horse rattle also comes from the Kit's Fun Polymer Set. **Tip** Resin resists water based color products, so if you want to color them with a product like color mist or watercolor paint, brush the resin piece with gesso and allow to dry. Then your color will stick to the decoration.

More mixed media textures.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's supplies to create a sweet tag for the next gift you give.
