Tag! You're It!!!

Hey yall! Happy Monday to ya! I hope you are having a great day so far! It's a brand new week and that always means a new challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot! This week at CBS we are creating tags using our Cuttlebug! I was so excited to see this challenge because I have not made a tag in ages...like over a year I reckon'! LOL. So, I decided to make not one, but two tags for this challenge.
Now, I have to tell ya....this past weekend I received a big box full of goodies from Imaginisce. I was so giddy...you should of seen me! Brandon was laughing! Anywho, inside the box was some super cute paper and embellishments from the 'Splash Dance' line and I knew I had to use them on my tags. Here are the two tags I created....(if you want, you can click on the picture to make it bigger so you can see). I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner on these. I also added a combination of funky fiber for the tops....another item laying in my scrappy stash that has not been used in forever. I'm so glad I pulled it out and used some!
For this first tag, I wanted some of it to be clear so that you could see through it. So, I first pulled out my Purple Cows laminator and laminated a 6x6 hot pocket. I then put this laminated pocket onto my Cricut mat and cut out my tag. Next, I ran this tag through the Cuttlebug using the 'Tiny Bubbles' embossing folder. I then cut two more of the same tag out using some solid cardstock and some super cute patterned paper. I cut the solid cardstock tag into two pieces. I then pulled out my new punch, the Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page set in 'Double Loops.' I have been eyeballing this punch for months and was so glad when the hubby picked it up for me at Michaels. I took the bottom portion of the solid cardstock tag that had been cut into two pieces and tore it. I adhered it to the back of the clear tag. Next, I took the patterned paper tag, and tore it along the bottom too. I adhered that onto the top of the clear tag. Here's an upclose of the tag so you can see what I mean....
Here is an upclose view of the top portion of the tag where I used the MS punch I mentioned above. I added some pearls from Queen & Company to jazz up the punching a bit more. This ribbon is also from Imaginisce.
For this tag, I also made a fan folded flower. I found the tutorial for this on Splitcoast Stampers. I added a 'sticker puff', also from the Imaginisce 'Splash Dance' line. I adhered this flower to my tag using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots....these are SO AWESOME! If you haven't picked any up, I'm tellin' ya, you gotta do so! They rock!
Here is the second tag I made. For this tag, I used the leftover scraps I had from the first tag. I used the 'Tiny Bubbles' and 'D'Vine Swirl' embossing folders. I incorporated 2 more cute stickers from the 'Splash Dance' line. Also, I got to play with another new toy that came in the Imaginisce box....the new 'I Rock' tool!!!! I used it to add the rhinestones to the embossing at the top portion of the tag. This tool is so cool and fun to use!!!

Be sure to hop on over to CBS to see the other DT's fabulous tags!
