J&C Creations - Life is Beautiful!

Good Morning!
This month at J&C CREATIONS BLOG we shall be moving on from focusing on certain brands and moving more towards different craft basics and showing how versatile they can be! This week we will be focusing on Ranger Tags in various sizes! These tags come in a selection of Manilla, Kraft & Black in 3 different sizes. However they are also available in larger sizes and today I am using one of those, the #10 in Kraft. I wanted to make a tag that was quite straight forward to those of you that are new to them!


To create my tag I cut a strip of white card that fit in the centre of the tag and mounted it onto some black, with only the sides of the black showing.  Before glueing together I stamped two flowers from the Penny Black Set 'Petal Party' down the white card in varied positions. I coloured the flowers in using 3 different Distress Markers and a Water Brush. Once complete I glued the pieces of card together with a strip of ribbon in-between then onto the tag, punching through the hole at the top again using a Crop-a-Dile. Next I added some Glossy Accents over the top of the flowers to give them some more definition and left to dry.

Once the Glossy Accents had set I tied the ends of the ribbon around the back of the tag fixing down with some tape. I then tied a bow through the strip on the right with another piece of ribbon and attached a Metal Charm with Glossy Accents in the centre, finishing with Liquid Pearls.
Using the Sentiment from the Stamp Set I stamped it down the bottom right of the tag and fixed some Dew Drops at the top. To make the left side of the tag different I pressed an Emboss It Ink Pad all down the side and sprinkled some White Chunky Embossing Powder by Stampendous on top.
To complete the tag I threaded some more ribbon through the top and attached a safety pin and charm through the centre.
