Today is Day 5 of the Blog Hop and here's the tag that I've made to share using the fun color combo from the {Cupcake Inspirations} challenge as well:
I have decided to play with the new STAMPlorations Zen Hearts stencil and create a heart-shaped tag design with it!  I took some red card stock and placed one of the hearts on the stencil over it and covered it with white embossing paste.  After removing the stencil and while the paste was still wet, I covered the red card stock with fine clear glitter.  After it dried, I took a pencil and lightly drew a heart shape that fit around the heart stencil design and fussy cut it out.  (I thought it gave it the appearance of a heart shaped cookie!)  I then layered the stenciled heart onto a piece of black card stock and fussy cut another heart to layer under the red one.

I took a strip of black card stock and white heat embossed the sentiment from the A Full Heart stamp set and used some foam tape to pop it up over the stenciled heart design.  Before I attached it to the heart, I took some black thread to make a nest behind it.  I've added some black sequins to the heart and then lastly punched a whole at the top of the heart and added some black twine to make it a tag.

Thanks so much for dropping by!  I hope you've enjoyed my tag and got inspired!
Be sure to check out the list of blogs to visit from the STAMPlorations blog - Day 5 post and check out the details on how to increase your chances of winning!  Be sure to hop on over the {Cupcake Inspirations} challenge blog to check out the inspiration with these colors and play along too!
