I went ahead and continued my tradition of using the new Birthstone Collection blends (Both Opal and Citrine) to create two more birthday tags.
Birthstone Collection- October Opal
Birthstone Collection- November Citrine
I started by stamping out a sentiment with the ScrapBerry pigment ink in Light Brown onto a Jillibean Soup shaker tag.
I then blended a little Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide onto the card.
I then stamped out some more simple images onto the front of the tag with more Shaded Lilac.
Picking out the right color to blend around Opal was difficult, and I think I missed the mark a little. However, it is still a fun tag.
I repeated similar steps with the November Citrine tag, using both Fossilized Amber and Scattered Straw.
I think I was able to get closer to what I wanted with this tag.
What’s even more exciting is that I am one blend away from having a full year assembled!!! Let me know in the comments below which Birthstone Sparkle Blend is your favorite. And don’t forget to continue on the blog hop. Your next stop is Meghan. Until then, Happy Crafting.

Love these pretty tags with the shaped shakers! March is my birth month and I am partial to aqua tones, so I’ll choose March’s sparkle blend as my favorite!

I have never seen those plastic covers before. They are perfect–I like the different shapes. But the stars are the blends. SO lovely!
These tags are awesome. Never thought to make shaker tags but now I might have to try it, Sarah W
