Have you taken advantage of Stampin' Up!'s annual Sale-A-Bration (SAB) giveaways this year?  So many of my customers have AND come back for more! 
  The Just Add Ink challenge this week is to feature items from the SAB catalogue and the Design Team have come up with loads of great ideas!

I chose the gorgeous DSP, Sweet Sorbet, to cover an Espresso Cup that is holding a little sweet treat for someone special.  The cup is cute, I know, but it still needed a tag to dress a simple gift up just that little bit more.
I stamped two tag images from the You're Lovely stamp set in Black Staz On ink.  This tags  fits beautifully inside the smallest Deco Label framelit, which I ran through my Big Shot.  I left one tag inside the frame while I gently sponged Soft Sky ink around the outside of the tag, softening the colour as I sponged toward to middle.  I cut out the flower images from the remaining tag, popped them up on Dimensionals and added a Basic Rhinestone centre to each to finish.  I then layered this on a Black tag, punched a whole and used the Twine from the SAB Sweet Sorbet Accessory pack to tie to the top of my bag.


  1. Such a fabulous SAB project Paula! So cute & dainty and such a great colour combo....Loving the Humbugs too! xxx

  2. The cup looks wonderful dressed up with the DSP Paula and the tag is such a sweet detail that really make the gift extra special. xxx

  3. I love the shading effect on your tag. Thanks for explaining how to accomplish it. Blessings to your sweet mother.

  4. This is such a pretty little gift, and the sponging is a perfect finish to your gorgeous little tag. x

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! Your sponging is as always stunning!

  6. You're right - the cup is so cute! I love the way you've matched in the tag too :-)
