Unlock the Essential Tag Punch. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment into the opened punch and get it centered side to side along the bottom edge of the punching area. Punch. Leave the punch unlocked.
Hold the unlocked Essential Tag Punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide one end of the strip of arrows on orange background Enjoy The Journey Designer Paper into the opened punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch. Slide the strip of paper over and punch again so you have two designer paper tag punch outs.
As you are ready to stamp using the Thanks A Bunch Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the small group of three little carrots image from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Mango Melody Ink Pad. Stamp it near the left side of the white, punched sentiment tag at a slight angle just above the sentiment. Re-ink the stamp with Mango Melody Ink and stamp at again at slight angle near the right side of the tag just above the sentiment. Clean the stamp using the Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist Stamp Cleaner and/or Simply Shammy, but leave it on the block.
Re-ink the small group of three little carrots image on Block A with the Pumpkin Pie Ink Pad. Stamp it near the center of the tag so it slightly overlaps the previously stamped carrots. Clean the stamp using the Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist Stamp Cleaner and/or Simply Shammy and put it away.
Mount the small frilly foliage image from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Garden Green Ink Pad. Stamp it three times over the tops of the carrots on the white punched sentiment tag. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time.
Adhere the three tag punch outs on top of each other so they fan out from the top as shown with the carrot/sentiment tag on top in the center.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Garden Green ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8" Ribbon Combo Pack.
Fold the ribbon in half.
Use a staple to adhere the folded ribbon to the top of the layered tags in the center so the open ends of the ribbon stick out at the top.
Trim the ends of the ribbon into sharp angles.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the layered tags with ribbon staple on to the front of the card in the center as shown so the tops of the ribbon almost touch the top of the dry embossed layer.
