Bird Call Tags

Recently I hosted a Birds Tags swap at the commune "Follow Your Arts" (in Israel).
Here is the tag I created.

Supplies used:
Manila CS for the tag
Old book's pages
CS from my stash (for my details on the back side)
Ranger's Distress Ink - Pine Needle, Crushed Olive, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade
Black VersaFine ink
Cuttlebug embossing folder - Bird Call
Background stamp (name unknown)
Tiny clear blings
Ochre leather textured CS
Trails of old Israeli postage stamps (from my private collection)
Metal binder clips, in Pastel colors
Satin ribbon and fibers from my stash
Scalloped Oval punch

First I cuttlebug th tags using the Bird Call embossing folder.
Then I used Ranger's Distress Ink (Pine Needle & Crushed Olive) for the background.
I used Ranger's Distress Ink (Spiced Marmalade) for the bird and added a tiny clear bling as its eye.
I stamped the background stamp using Black VersaFine ink.
If any of you recognizes this stamp and can tell me its brand or where to get it, I'll be grateful (it's a friend's stamp and she didn't keep its package).
I distressed the tags' edges and the small scraps of ochre CS using Ranger's Distress Ink (Rusty Hinge), and added trails of old Israeli postage stamps (from my private collection), attached with small metal binder clips to add some dimension.
I added satin ribbons and fibers.
I covered the back side of the tags with pages from an old book and added my details on a colorful scalloped CS.

Here are my 4 tags:

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly


  1. Those tags are beautiful! I love the embossing!

  2. תגים נפלאים. הצבעים חיים ומתאימים כל כך יפה ביחד. הייתי שמחה להיות הבעלים השמחים של תג כזה. רמז? ודאי! הכל עשוי בטוב טעם. ממש מקסים
