Today we are over the moon to have two amazing designers joining us to celebrate one of our favorite companies, Hero Arts! Jennifer McGuire and Clare Prezzia are sharing the adorable tags they have created with Hero Arts products and felt.
Jennifer McGuire's kind heart, ability to make us laugh, and bring joy to our days are all precious gifts. We are thrilled to once again have Jennifer join us for our 12 Tags series and share one of her current passions with us - the lady knows how to use felt in such clever ways! I'm guessing you all have her blog, Jennifer McGuire Ink, bookmarked. Just in case you have missed out, please head over and join her for SO many fabulous projects, videos and tips for how to stay organized!
Thank you Jennifer for sharing such fantastic tips with all of us here today and for having such a huge heart and being such an enormous support and encouragement over the years! Hugs, Ellen
Jennifer shares some fabulous tips with us today showcasing how to use felt on our Christmas tags to give them a warm, homespun feeling!

Tip #1 - Adhere Stick-It adhesive to felt before die cutting for maximum adhesion.
Tip #2 - Use dry embossing pad for a fabulous raised or debossed texture. Then use an ink blending tool and ink on raised dry embossing detail to accentuate the pattern.
Tip #3 - Use white card-stock to back white felt to add strength to felt pieces and avoid "seeing" what's behind it. As well, double your card-stock to add strength to card-stock tags and cover unattractive details on tag backs.
You have probably seen Clare Prezzia's spectacular work on the Hero Arts blog (among other places), and we are just tickled that she is with us today sharing her talent! We love how Clare's projects always include the perfect pretty little details just like the stamped & cut felt she included on her tag. Make sure to head over to Clare's blog, Bearydo Paperie, to see more of her amazing work!
