Tag, You're It! #77 With Hazel Kinvig-Paul

It's time for a new challenge over at Tag, You're It!  We're CASEing a dear blogging friend of mine, Hazel Kinvig-Paul of My Card Attic.  

When I CASE someone's work, I like to sketch out their card or tag first.  It helps me to look closer at the elements within the design.  Hazel has some remarkable details that I wanted to include on my tag:
Here's Hazel's tag:

There are several obvious similarities in our tags such as the baby theme, baby clothes, scripty sentiment and bow.  One less obvious element would be the connection between the clothing and the tag itself.  Hazel placed the neck of the onsie right on the hole of the tag, which was very clever.  I connected the clothing to the tag by hanging it on the sentiment.  Hazel also has hearts in the background to reflect the little heart on the onsie, so I used a star on the overalls and scattered some in the background as well.

Stamps:  MFT Denim Background
Dies: MFT Creative Clips, MFT Tag Builder Blue Prints 4, Bundles of Baby Clothes, SSS Hand-lettered Greetings
Other: Tumbled Glass DI, Brusho - Scarlet, Brilliant Red, Orange, Yellow, Copic C0, Sharpie - Metallic Silver, Nuvo Crystal Drops - Silver Lining, Strathmore Cold Press 140lb Watercolor Paper

Please stop by the Tag, You're It! blog to see how other DT members were inspired.  I hope to see your inspiration in the gallery!

Thanks for coming over to visit.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

  4. Oh, my, once again you are the cream of the crop, Kara! The coloring and how you CASEd the details of Hazel's adorable tag are amazing and so thoughtful in totality, but hanging that squeezable darling outfit on a hanger over the sediment is what makes you a GENIUS designer!! If you ask me. And I agree with you that the way Hazel punched the hole to line up with the neck of the onesie was pretty genius, too!! Hugs, Darnell
