My Cards and Tags: Beet Tag using Spellbinders' "Beets Me" die

"Food and/or Drink" is this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I decided to go in a beet-y direction by making this tag:



The beet came from an adorable die set and stamp combo from Spellbinders called, "Beets Me."  I started with a tag cut from Strathmore Mixed Media paper, which I glued some patterned-paper scraps to.  After the scraps were added, I covered the whole thing with smears of acrylic paint.  I also cut out my beet and colored it with Distress Ink.


I am loving this Trellis die by Tim Holtz, so I used that as a background element.  Again, I toned down the overly-bright colors with a thin coating of white paint.


I liked the idea of replicating the dirt that the beet was pulled out of, so I made a little splatter of dirt out of Brusho crystals.  I also added some text stamping at the bottom.



I glued my beet on the top, added some embroidery floss through the hole, stuck on some enamel dots and this tag was done!



These are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:


I'm excited to see how you're inspired by food and/or drink this week!  Upload your yummy creations to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win $50 to the Simon Says Stamp store.
