Birthday cake...!!

Birthday cake...!!

Hey my crafty friends..

It's Ashlee here today, Have you seen the brand new set "Meerkats on the lookout"??!!
(Co-ordinating dies also available)

OMG it is the cutest set ever!!!! 
I put in a request to Gerda awhile ago for meerkats and she has absolutely outdone herself they are even cuter than I imagined a Gerda meerkat to be....LOVE!!


I am enjoying making tags so much lately, they are perfect to add to crafty birthday gifts....

I started out making the tags by die-cutting the Heffy doodle tag along die in white cardstock twice...

On the base die cut I masked off the bottom piece and inked with Ground espresso distress oxide ink. Once I removed the masked piece of tape I added some clouds using an MFT mini cloud edge stencil and Salty ocean distress oxide ink...


I stamped a sentiment onto each of the tag bases using Memento tuxedo black ink...

Using the same ink I stamped the meerkats on some xpress-it blending cardstock and coloured with Copic markers...


I finished off both the tags by adding some blue/white twine and they were done...

I think these would work well for male or female gift tags and I can't wait to add them to a present!! That birthday cake sentiment is so perfect for them too...

I hope you enjoy my new tags and feel inspired to create some of your own meerkat tags!!

Happy crafting, Hugs Ashlee
