A kit of choice I am using a gorgeous collab kit by the wonderfully talented girls over at Pimp my tags with Scraps called Spring Love you can get it here.

Ready?

Let's get started!

Open up a new canvas 700x700 we can always re-size/crop later.

From the polka dot scraps part of the kit open up frame 4 copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely on the canvas. Take your magic wand select inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 then open up a paper of choice I used paper 3. Then go to selections-invert and hit delete, make sure this paper layer is UNDER the frame.

I used ribbon 1 from the kit re-sized it so it fit nicely on the frame and placed it at the top right of the frame. I also used scatter 1, scatter 2 and the water drops placing them in the middle bottom part of the frame.

Now copy and paste your tube as a new layer, I sort of placed her so she was sitting on top of scatter 1 element. Add a drop shadow.

Now in a font of choice add your name I used a gradient of two colors from the tag but that is up to you how you want to do yours. Add a gradient glow and a drop shadow. Settings I used shown in the screen-shot below.
 
 

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!

Open up a new canvas 700x700 we can always re-size/crop later.

From Sarah's portion of the kit open up frame 3 copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it a little so its not too big and takes up too much of the tag
.
Take your magic wand and select inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 then open a paper of choice I used paper 8 from the kit. Selections-invert and hit delete, make sure this layer is UNDER the frame layer. I also used the grass element from the kit placed it under the frame layer then used my eraser tool to erase what was over the sides of the frame. Make sure this layer is UNDER the frame layer as well.

Next I added the grow with love element from the kit moved it to the left deleted the line that went along the bottom and over the frame to make it look like it was in the frame, then duplicated it and mirrored placing it on the other side.

I used splatter 2 from the kit pasted it as a new layer and moved it all the way to the bottom of the layer palette. Dupilcate, mirror and flip.

Now add your tube and a drop shadow shown in the screen shot below.

Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

Xero - Fritillary

VanDerLee - Unplugged X

A kit of choice I am using a gorgeous kit free by Laura of Cinnamon Scraps called French Kiss which you can download from her blog here.


Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up the template shift + D to duplicate it close out the original.

Delete the copyright layer.

On Circle1 layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new raster layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used a dark grey, then add some noise to make it stand out. Repeat the same steps for Raster1 layer EXCEPT do not add any noise to this layer. Close off the original layers.

Next on Circle3 layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with a gradient of choice I used a background-foreground gradient. Then add Xero Fritillary settings shown in the screen-shot below. Close off the original layer.



On the Rounded Edges Rectangle layer seletions-select all-float-defloat add a new layer flood fill with a color of choice and close off the original layer.

On the Frame background layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with the gradient we used earlier. Open up your close up and paste it as a new layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete make sure you are ON the tube layer when you do this.  Then duplicate it go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur- 3 change the blend mode to soft light and the original layer blend mode to Luminane L.  I also added VanDerLee - Unplugged X - Pattern offset, use the settings that fit your tag, on the top layer of the closeup.
On the with passion layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new raster layer and with your paint brush and a color of choice paint the words to match the tag. Select none and close off the original layer.

On heart 1 & 2 layer add some noise.

On the 3 hearts layer selections-select all-float-defloat add a new raster layer flood fill with a color of choice to match your tag and add some noise. Close off the original layer.

Open up Ribbon Wrap 2 from the kit paste it as a new layer I rotated it and re-sized it to fit nicely around the 
frame.

Open up the wordart from the kit paste it as a new layer I placed mine at the top and re-sized it so it fit nicely on the tag.
Now we're going to add our tube so open that up copy and paste it as a new layer I put it over in the cirlces. Now if you have some of the tube hanging over here is how you fix that. Go to the Circle2 layer selections-select all-float-defloat-invert then back on your tube layer and use your eraser brush to erase what is hanging over. Duplicate this layer and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur-3 and change the blend mode to soft light and add a drop shadow. Settings shown below in the screen-shot.



Now we're going to add a mask layer to the very bottom of the tag just to add something to it so add a new layer and move it to the bottom of the layer pallette. Flood fill with the gradient from earlier and add the mask, then a little noise effect.

Its time to add your name in a font of choice, I also added some noise, inner bevel,gradient glow and drop shadow. Screen-shot below shows the settings for the gradient glow,inner bevel and the drop shadow the noise setting is whatever fits your tag or tastes.
