Tag, You're It! #33 and a Winner!

Candy corn, you either love it or you hate it, but you have to admit that at this time of year, it's as cute as can be!  Today starts a new challenge over at Tag, You're It! and I have the privilege of presenting the inspiration piece:

I created a 5 1/2"x2" long tag out of GP white cardstock.  I cut a half circle at the 1 1/4" mark by partial die cutting a (size) circle die, and scored a line from the curve to the ends.  Next I scored a line another 1 1/4" from the first score line.  I stamped the images and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink using Paper Smooches' Sugar Rush stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.  The end of the tag was cut with pinking sheers and backed with PTI Orange Zest cs.  Another strip of Orange Zest cs was adhered to the top of the tag, and stamped with circles from Paper Smooches Alphadot stamp set.  Some dots were colored in with a white Gelly Roll pen.  Two thin strips of PTI (name) cs bordered the top and bottom of the tag.  A bit of yellow grosgrain ribbon finished off the top.

I hope you get the chance to play along with us at Tag, You're It!  I would love to see how you are inspired!
 

And now, the winner of the stamp set is... Vinita Jain!  Congratulations, Vinita, please email me your address and I will get that stamp set out to you ASAP!
 
Thanks for coming over to visit!  I hope you have a great day!

  27. This is so adorable. I hadn't looked that closely at the tag before, and only just now noticed your ingenious fold and partial die cut. Love this, and how amazing to get so much punch and mileage out of a sweeet image of one single piece of candy. Brilliant, Kara Lynne.
