Hello My Name Is Cards

Hello!  Today is my day on the Teresa Collins Designs blog!  I thought I'd share my cards here, too!  These ones use the Hello My Name is collection from Teresa Collins Designs.  I love so many things about this collection- cute typewriters, the bold color combination, the versatility... I could go on and on!  Here is what I created with it:

Typed Tag Card 

You can see one of my favorite elements of the collection on this card- the cute typewriters!  I used the stamp and also the decorative tape with typewriters on them- aren't they cute!!

I used the bold striped tag with a frame from the Hello My Name Is Ephemera Tags pack for my focal point atop a kraft card base.  I added the smaller tag from the Hello My Name Is Decorative Brads pack to the center of the frame after I stamped the typewriter on it.  

Typed Tag Card 2 

Just a little peek of the decorative tape, a bit of red patterned paper, and tone on tone stamping accent the focal point perfectly.

The next one uses the collection as more of an accent- I really wanted the stencilled background to be the focal point of this card:

Invisible Tag Card 2 

I started out with a kraft card base and used the Basically Essential modeling paste and stencil pack #2 to create the days of the week background.  I added a transparency is cut into a tag shape and embellished with patterned paper from the Hello My Name Is 6x6 pad, the hello decorative tape, and a sticker from the Decorative Sticker Sheet.  I accented the sticker with a couple of the Hello My Name Is epoxy dots as well.

Invisible Tag Card 4 

Adding the decorative brad and twine to the top of the tag lets you see the shape a little more.  In real life it's easier to see because it's shiny and reflects the light.

I have one more project to share today- a large tag.  This one was featured in this month's Scrapbook Generations online magazine, CREATE:

Here Tag 

I was inspired by a sketch sent by Scrapbook Generations.  I created a white tag base and added modeling paste over the chevron patterned stencil from Basically Essential Stencil Pack #2.  The tags are all created from paper out of the Hello My Name is 6x6 pad. 

Here Tag 2

The quote is a sticker strip from the Hello My Name Is Decorative Sticker sheet that I  cut into smaller pieces.  I thought it worked well with the here stamp- isn't it great?

I really enjoy creating with the Hello My Name Is collection!  All the fun elements make card making so easy!  

Thanks for joining me today!
