It's fall, ya'll...

...time to switch seasonal drinks!

This was inspired by the current inspiration at Tag, You're It, made by Mr. Cardmaker:

I needed a quick tag for a bottle of wine for a hostess gift, and Mr.'s tag was fresh in my mind-- I knew when I first read his, however, that I wanted to convert the saying into a wine saying.

  • 7 Gypsies tag inked with Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, and Aged Mahogany DY
  • Splatters of Aged Mahogany Distress Stain added to resemble zinfandel
  • Faber-Castell Pitt pens for the saying and border; the saying was written on very old music paper
  • Vintage seam binding inked with Dried Marigold and Shabby Shutters DI and sprayed with water
  • Red twine from a dollar store
  • Leaves cut with Tim's tattered leaves out of my scraps last week
  • Tim's mini burlap stencil inked with Brushed Corduroy DI, then monoprinted onto the tag down the center
    Notice that I cut the edges of the stencil... definitely recommend with this particular stencil. 


  1. LOVE your take on Richard's tag! Those leaves...swooning!

  2. This tag is so beautiful and features Fall fantastically! The colors are gorgeous together and that stenciling is awesome sauce! I fantabulous and wowzers! I sure hope you have been well and having fun! Hugz! ~Niki

  3. I LOVE your clever conversion from coffee to wine, AND from Chardonnay to red. lol. Love all the distressing on your wonderful tag. The leaves are gorgeous, as are all the details that you added.
