IBS April Release: Tags & Inspirations

Happy Sunday!!
Did you get a chance to see Day 1 of Inspired by Stamping April Release Blog Hop?
If you didn't check it out HERE.
Now it's Day 2  and I am swooning over this new stamp collection. 
The possibilities are really endless, with this new collection. 
I had so many ideas for these tags, but just kept working the card til I was happy with the results.
Believe me, I am.  I LOVE the distressed shabby chic look of this card.
I edged all my paper with white paint and them walnut stain.  Then I curled and ripped, to give it more distressing.  I used some beautiful Scalloped Border Crochet Trim and Colonial Rose Seam Binding, which coordinated beautifully with the paper.  
Did you see the tag, the upper right hand corner.  
Stamped on kraft cardstock and embossed with cream/white embossing powder.
It really added and completed this card.  
Wait til you see the rest of the tags and sentiments that come in this set. 
You will surely love it as much as I do.
