Papertrey Ink - November Release Countdown - Day 4

Hey there, crafty friends! We're getting closer and closer to release day. Before I start today I just want to say thank you for visiting with me over the past few days and leaving me such kind comments. You always brighten my day with your sweet words. *mwah*

Now onto todays projects! I have the pleasure of sharing three cards/tags with you using the new Mix Ups Pocket Tags! These tags were so fun to create with and I hope I can inspire you just a little when it comes to creating with them. There are 3 tags total and each tag has a matching die that allows you to create a *pocket*. On each of my projects you will be able to see that. Even though I did not place anything inside the tag pockets,  you can envision placing a gift card of cash. So let's get started!

**All of the new products will be available November 15th at 10pm EST!**

Card #1 features one of the tags mixed with the beautiful images from Forest Floor: Winter (introduced on Day 2). I chose a cheerful color palette for this card … Lilac Grace, Hibiscus, Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores and Limeade Ice.

Just a helpful tip : 1/4" Scor-Tape is perfect for attaching the top portion of your tag to the bottom. 

After I die-cut and assembled my tag, I attached it to the front of my card with dimensional foam. 

I then just attached all of the pretty images underneath my sentiment and finished it off with a few clear sequins.

Card #2 - Who says you can only add a gift card or cash inside the pocket tag!? I love this sweet little deer from Fawn & Flora and thought she would be a perfect fit inside. Now, on this tag I didn't use the coordinating die that creates the pocket. Instead I chose to use one of the rectangle dies from the new Nesting Basics: Rectangles that was introduced on Day 1. After I die-cut it I then used the coordinating pocket die to cut a tab out of the top. 

I stamped the rectangle with images from Floral Fantasy: Christmas in the following colors … Lilac Grace, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and True Black. I added dimensional foam on the back and attached that over the Hawaiian Shores tag and the deer.

To finish it I added a few die-cut flowers (also from Floral Fantasy: Christmas) and a sentiment, from Fawn & Flora.

Up last for me today is a pretty in pink baby tag. I used the new Home to Roost set and mixed it with the third and final tag in the Mix Ups Pocket Tags

I used the Bitty Big: Limeade Ice Collection for part of my tag and then stamped the birdhouse in Sweet Blush and Hibiscus. 

Well friends, I sure hope you enjoyed what I shared with you today. These new tags are going to leave you with so many fun creating possibilities!
