I have a couple of projects to share with you today.  My card combines the newly release Faithful Friend with
Flourishes Verses stamp sets.  I decided to go CAS with this design.  I die cut Spellbinder's Fancy Tags One.  I die cut and used the stamp a ma jig to place the sentiment and flourish designs into the center of the tags.  Aside from the textured background, the only embellishment are two pearls.  I did used some foam tape to pop up the tags for added dimension.  The center sentiment tag is popped up on a double layer of foam tape to make it a little bit higher.  I love how it turned out.  Always a fun go to and easy sketch.



For my second project, I decided with so many sets this release focusing on friendship, it would be fun to have a quick little gift to give or something cute to make for myself.  I decided to make key chains or key tags for this project.  I started out with Faithful Friends and Flourishes Verses sets.  I die cut ODBD tag die with coasters.  Each key tag uses three coasters glued together for added support.    I made a collage on one side using some other ODBD images.  I added the Glossy Accents and let dry.  I then stamped the images for the other side, added the glossy accents and let dry.  Once they are dried all three pieces can be glued together.  I stamped on both sides, however, I think it would be nice to have a handwritten note signed as well.  Lots of options and fun to do.  I added the little hinge closure and key and the project was done.  I am thinking with the three layers and glossy accents this key tag should be pretty durable.  If you choose to only use it for all the grocery store discount tags, then it still makes for a cute friendship gift or personal key tag.  I am going to use this one.  I really love the size and the fact that it does not make lots of clingy clangy(word?) noise. 



As always thanks so much for stopping by!  From here, hop on over to the ODBD  BLOG to answer the question and comment for your chance to win!

  92. Key tags/key chains are a cool idea! I think I need to make a few! I wonder if I could use ModgePodge to seal the tag & edges after gluing the layers together. I'm trying to remember if that's what my sister used years ago when she made pins from layered paper, after filing the edges to show the layers of colored paper glued together.... Hmmm, thanks for the inspiration!

    I like the triple die cut panel look. I've never thought of that. Your colors are classy and the design helps me get a grasp of the dimension of the stamp you're using. Sometimes I get stamps on the internet and they come way bigger than I anticipated...Thank you for some great ideas.
