Ashley created this beautiful tag!  I love her color combo...the flirty baker's twine and perfect design.  The book print backdrop is totally up my alley - love!!
(Bookmark die, Scripty Sayings, Botanicals 1)


Karolyn used the fun "kiss technique".  She stamped the houndstooth pattern from Kissables 1 - onto the leaf cluster from Botanicals 2.  I am guessing the leaves were inked in kraft and the houndstooth pattern was inked up with white.  The effect is fabulous!  Her design is clean and rustic at the same time...ohhhh how I love that!!!
