Manor House Creations - Romantic Tag Set

Hi Ladies,

Today I have 2 romantic shabby chic tags to share created for Manor House Creations.

I was inspired by the My Minds Eye In Bloom 6" paper pad, which has a soft and dreamy feel to it, and mixed this with a cream pp from My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart 6" paper pad for contrast.

Dream Tag

For my 1st tag I chose a pretty floral pp and contrasted with the cream pp.  I framed the floral pp with a pretty stitched ric rac trim, then machine stitched around the edges.

I also used the cream pp to cut out the floral wreath diecut, cut off one end and embellished with a white Solitude flower and cream Minuette flower. I altered the Solitude flower with a couple of shades of mists, a touch of gesso and a pearl brad for the centre.  The white minuette flower was altered with a touch of saltwater taffy mist added to the flower centre with a brush.  Finished off the flower cluster with some cream leaves and a bow in cream jute twine.
Love the flexible words.  The white is so versatile, as it can be altered to match the colours of your project, which I did here with 2 shades of mist, to give the word a pretty mottled effect.

MHC Product: Solitude-white, Minuettes-pink mix, cream leaves large, Flexible Words-dream white.

Love Tag

For the 2nd tag I went with a similar design, but changed it up a little. I chose a floral pp in a larger pattern and contrasted with soft pink pp.  I framed the floral pp with an antique ric rac from my stash, then machine stitched around the edges.  The wreath diecut was backed with mesh and the flowers topped with pearls.

The larger cream flower came from a Value Pack which as the name says are fantastic value!!  I altered the edges of the flower with mist and gesso, then dabbed a few drops of pink on the stamens.   To create the sweet open blossom, I altered one of the mini blush roses by opening up the petals, pulling out the centre bud and replacing the bud with a pearl brad.
MHC Product:  Mini Blush Roses-soft gold, cream leaves large, Solitude, Value Pack, Flexible Words-love white.

Other Product Used:  MME 6" paper pads, Kaisercraft pearls, pearl brad, Lindy's Stamp Gang mists- salt water taffy, cotton candy,  Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist-strawberry shortcake, Glimmermist-crushed shells,  Craft Queen ric rac trim, jute twine and fine satin ribbon, Prima pearl centre and lace covered button, pearl brad, vintage ric rac and button, mesh tape, gesso, x-cut border punch, lace butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

  3. Cathy these look so gorgeously feminine (think I made that word up) I really love the softness of the colours with the other embellishments.
