Vicki's Diemond Dies, "Life is Good" Tag

Vicki here...I'm back on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today to share another of my November inspiration projects using die-cuts from our sponsor Diemond Dies.
"Life is Good"

 I made this fun fall tag using one of my Julie Nutting doll stamps and scraps from my stash. The Prima tag is covered with the perfect patterned paper to go with the Diemond Dies Fall Leaves Set.  I stamped and cut out the doll three times using white cardstock and red patterned paper, then fussy cut her dress apart. The front and pockets on the doll's dress are popped up for dimension.  I stamped my sentiment, "Life is Good" on the dress front and added a jeweled heart on the pocket.

I created lots of dimension by layering the leaves and ferns cut with the Diemond Dies Fall Leaves Set and Fern Leaf die-cuts.

The Pine Branch Die-cut was used as the base for the cluster of leaves.

This adorable hair bow was created with my ever present Craft-Dee BowZ Tool!

You can order your tool today by clicking on the "Buy Now" icon in the left sidebar of the blog.  Donna has made some wonderful video tutorials that are available to help you along while using your new Craft-Dee BowZ tool

Life is good and so is your beautiful tag :-) I love the colours and the natural look of it with the twine and the leaves and branches.

Love all the layers! The DP in the background is a nice touch!

This is adorable! I love the big paper doll!!!! And her dress is paper pieced, too! And look at the background paper and then you used that die and that accents the bare trees. This is darn awesome looking. And the bow on this is lovely. This is quite spectacular looking! Hugs, Gail
