ROB & JAMI'S WEDDING

Several days ago, I mentioned that I would be working on tags for my cousin Jami's wedding. The tags will be attached to gift bags filled with goodies given to out-of-town guests when they check into the hotels. I feel rather silly about any hype I gave to these tags in my previous post because to the eye of any fellow stamper familiar with Stampin' Up! stamp designs, this is a simple simple tag design. BUT, to the eye of someone not familiar with SU stamp designs (like the bride & the majority of the wedding guests!), it looks like a very detailed, intricate design. Jami freaked when she saw these tags and even showed them to her cake decorator wanting her to duplicate the design on the wedding cake! That's what I've always loved about this stamp set, Baroque Motifs! ... simple to use with elegant, fascinating results! I needed simple because of time limitations, and I needed to make 50+ of them.

Jami & Rob's tags were stamped in Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery. The word "welcome" is from the stamp set, Warm Words, and Diamond Stickles (non-SU) were used in the flower/starburst centers.

My apologies for the not-so-great photos ... I'm at my new job during the best lighting for photographing my artwork ... I'm going to have to work with that.

Your tags are beautiful -- I think my Baroque Motifs needs some love -- your tags inspired me -- simple as they may be -- LOL!!! That was too funny -- the comparison to how a stamper v. non-stamper see a project -- but that's GOOD thing, now isn't it!!! I can see why they were WOWed by these and I'd LOVE to see their cake!!! Great job!!!

Nancy, these are fabulous! That's why I love papercrafting -- it's so easy to add a little "wow" to something with a handmade tag! Thanks for the reminder that simple is sometimes the way to go! :)
