3 Baby Tags & A simple Birthday

Happy Friday crafters.  Hope you've been having a great week!   Here to share a set of 3 Baby-Shower Gift Tags and a simple but bold Birthday Card. Both projects were created using Creative Expressions Cutting Dies by Sue Wilson!

3 Baby Shower Gift Tags
This could have easily been a card too! I chose tags to attach to the gifts and the plastic container behind here is what I packaged this trio set into! 
Stamps: None 
Paper: Yellow, Green, Blue, White CS
Ink: soft yellow dye inks (for light sponging around edges)
Accessories: Ribbon, Paper Hole Punch, CE/SW Dotted Matrix Embossing Folder, Creative Expressions cutting dies by Sue Wilson; Striplet Lotus, New Arrival - Little Treasures, and the Shadow box Collection New Arrival Dies
Techniques: Layering, Dry Embossing
I multi-cut and layered each cut for dimension. The tags are sponged lightly with a soft yellow for added interest. The BABY word cubes were also stenciled / sponged while die was still over the cuts.  These are finished-off with punched holes in various locations of tags for adding the ribbons. Below is another photo of these 3 baby tags split-up.

Would you believe that this was actually a BABY CARD originally? Yeap- it was and this is what it looked like before splitting it up to make the 3 TAGS;

A simple-but dramatic-  BIRTHDAY CARD

Stamps: None.  Paper: Glossy Primary Colors, White CS. 
Ink: None
Accessories: Creative Expressions Cutting Dies by Sue Wilson - Perspectives - Happy, Shadow Box Collection Lattice Frame Dies (for framing)
Techniques: Layering

I simply cut the Happy multiple times and stacked them for dimension.  I used Lattice Frame rectangular cutting dies to cut out a smaller framed piece for top  and separated the bottom to show the happy "floating".  I liked the birthday negative on its own with the contrasting yellow behind it. Aren't these dies fun?  There are so many ways to use them. Hope you will give them a try! :)
