TH 2015 June Tag - Father's Day Coffee Tag

Put a lot of hard work & detail into this Tag using mostly Tim Holtz items. Took a couple of days to complete this. Supply List is below and hopefully I did not leave anything out. 

Made the Tag a Father's Day Tag. Punched out a 1 1/2" circle from Canvas Corp Coffee Stamp Kraft for sentiment tag at top of tag to have a Coffee image on one side. Stamped Scrappy Moms Father's Day sentiment on other side of sentiment tag. Attached the sentiment tag with a TH charm clip.

The TH Stripes stencil does not show up as well in the photo.

I did not have all the items used by TH so I used what I had. 

I did not have the DYI ink pad & TH green inks so instead I used Hero Arts Green Ombre ink pad. 

I did not have the TH Fresh Brewed Coffee die so instead I used Cricut Bits & Pieces cartridge for Coffee Paper Cup. The Cricut I Love You A Latte cartridge Coffee Paper Cup was a bit too slanted so Bits & Pieces looked better. Both Cricut cartridges are subscribed cartridges so I can use with my Cricut online Design Space subscription without owning the cartridges. I cut Kraft cardstock and then cut recycled chipboard to make it more sturdy. I used the center band cut from Cricut as a guide to fussy cut the corrugated piece with TH scissors. I looked at the TH die in a store and fussy cut the plastic piece with TH scissors first from Kraft cardstock to use as guide and using paper cup image for measuring starting with a circle first and then trimming. If you look very closely you can see my little notch on the left side that the TH die had. For the circle on the corrugated piece I used a punch and trimmed to be like the way the die circle looks. I was pleased with how the Cricut coffee paper cup looked quite like the TH coffee paper cup when assembled.

I did not have the TH green paint so instead I used TH peeled paint cardstock. I did not have the TH green ink so I used Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber Lettuce on the star.

Did not have the hashtag sentiment so instead I handwrote the hashtag symbol '#' and used a TH stamp that was same words as the hashtag sentiment.

Did not have the linen ribbon so instead I used TH trimmings that I used TH Distress ink walnut stain on.

Added a Starbucks gift card.
