Valentine Week Fancy Tag – by Darsie Bruno

Darsie’s Valentine tag today is over the top! She used crepe paper to create her luscious roses, layered atop an assortment of leaves and vines. A lacy red heart peeks out from behind, and Darsie added in a generous supply of pearls and some die cut glitter tape, all on the beautiful tag she made. You’ll just have to take a look – OH MY!!!

Layers and layers or lusciousness here!

Please note those flowers are made from the same Melissa Frances Crepe Paper that Deb used yesterday for the ruffle on her Vintage Valentine. That fabulous texture sure adds a lot to a project!

You can find Darsie’s post on her blog here.

Darsie used:

Stamps: Spring Wishes Vintage Labels 8 & 9 by JustRite

Paper: Be Mine by Pebbles

Melissa Frances Crepe Paper

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fired Brick

Dies: Spellbinder Spiral Blossom One (the large rose)

Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms (the smaller roses and larger leaves)

Spellbinders Foliage Flourish (larger light green flourish with vines)

Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sprigs (smaller dark green foliage)

Spellbinders 5×7 Heirloom Legacy (the ornate topper on the tag)

Spellbinders Lace Hearts (red lacy heart)

Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One (glitter tape applied to paper, then cut with this die)

Spellbinders Die D-Lites Gilded Gate Two (wrought iron type border along left edge)

Spellbinders A Gilded Life Petite Pennants (sentiment tag)

Ribbon: May Arts 1/4″ Silk Ribbon – Rose

May Arts Multi-sized Beaded String – White

(The graphic from May Arts is poor for these beads. These are the beads seen throughout Darsie’s floral cluster. Multi-sized pearl type beads on a fishing line type string — delicate in appearance, but sturdy and so pretty!)

Embellishments: Kaisercraft Pearls – White

American Crafts Glitter Tape – Peony

Adhesives: Liquid Glue; Scor Tape

Spring Wishes Vintage Labels 8 & 9 small clear stamp set by JustRite

This set is filled with sentiments for Valentine’s Day, Easter and Mother’s Day, but it also includes generic sentiments for year round use, too!

Melissa Frances Crepe Paper

 This crepe paper is not like those inexpensive rolls you can buy in the stores. It is much thicker and has a bit of a stretch to it, making it super easy to work with.

It was used today to make Darsie’s roses and yesterday to make Deb’s ruffle.
