Cool Summer Taj Tags


For those of you not familiar with Taj designs....where have you been?...it is a company that sells the cutest Hawaii based designed items. I am particularly fond of the rubber stamp designs so I was extremely pleased to find a second Taj store in Ward Center (the other store is in Ward Warehouse).  I felt like adding to my stash of tags (never know when you need another one) and thought I'd use the panda and popsicle Taj stamps.  I found 12x12 double-sided card stock (Doodlebug and American Crafts) at Market City Ben Franklin Crafts which coordinated perfectly with the images. For those of you who don't like to color much, you'll find that most of the Taj designs require very little coloring skill.  However, because the panda design had some large black areas which stamped unevenly, I added black Fun Flock (Stampendous).....instant touchable, furry bears! Large iridescent glitter (Doodlebug?) made the shave ice look 'ono'. For the edges I decided to apply skinny washi tape (from Celebrations, I think) instead of adding a second tag to frame it because I didn't want the pretty backside print to be covered up. 
Here are two more tags which I decorated with the Taj designs.  I was very excited to find the popsicle print card stock because it was perfect to use with the stamp. A little Glossy Accent was added over the Copic colored images to make the popsicles look 'lickable'. Each popsicle was adhered with 'pop' dots...hahaha!  The die cut words were made with Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn and Echo Park dies. Oh, the tag was cut with a die too (Little B)...don't you just love how dies have made your crafting life so easy?  There are so many beautiful and useful dies at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. Go check out the stores and start adding to your crafting fun!

I LOVE Taj!! She comes down twice a year to the Carson Rubber Stamp show and I always make it a point to stop by and see what goodies she brings. LOVE the tags and all the fun colors you used. And adding the flock adds that extra special touch. Brilliant! Have a wonderful day Lynn and Thanks for sharing today! :)

OMG I love Taj! I didn't know the store was still open. Maybe I'll have Mom swing by there when she goes to Honolulu next month...
