Lots of Love for Blueprints

This month’s Creative Construction with Blueprints is the perfect opportunity 
to showcase how MFT's Blueprints can be used to create Valentine-themed tags.

I had fun pairing Tag Builder Blueprints 5 with Birdie Brown's Ewe Are the Best 
stamps and coordinating dies, together with Painted Prints Smitten Paper Pack.
The sheep (and ram) were stamped with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink on watercolor 
card stock, colored loosely with Zig markers, then die cut with the coordinating dies.

I die cut the tags from an assortment of papers and mixed and matched them 
until I found combinations that I liked. It was fun to add the punny sentiments
in the tag's spaces, and add on those teeny tiny hearts.

For more tag inspiration, visit the MFT blog for links to other participating
designers who took on this month's challenge. Better yet, check out
MFT's Blueprints board on Pinterest. Thanks for stopping by!
