Quietfire Designs - Sentiment Tags

 Sometimes I like to just use a sentiment stamp on a card or tag and here are two beauties I found by Quietfire Designs at my last trip to Oyster Stamps .

This first one I had in mind for a Grandson going off to university - and we all know how hard male cards are to do! So this one was perfect to me, I used some papers I already had and distressed the edges - first by pulling the edges (using a wet wipe and my nail!) and second by using distress ink (Tim Holtz Faded Jeans) . A little bit of Frantage and a couple of embellishments from my stash and it was done. I wanted to keep a vintage look so I stamped the sentiment on a  piece of backing paper and cut out the oval shape with my Spellbinders Classic Ovals die.

The second one is more girlie and I thought suitable for someone moving to a new home - hence the key and little house charms on there. I used similar methods as the first one to distress the edges (using Spun Sugar DI) and used Memory Box Tiffany Frame to highlight the sentiment. I added a few Liquid Pearls to finish it off.
So two tags from two little stamps, I find the tag style of card suits using sentiments as they really become the focus of the card.
