Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fancy Tags & Fancy Tags Two

Today's cards feature Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fancy Tags and Fancy Tags Two.  I find myself using these quite a bit in my cardmaking. 

On this first card, in addition to the fancy tag mat for the dimensional flower sticker (from the dollar store), I used a motif from the Fleur De Lis set. I made a couple of die cuts using the small die, and then cut them in half, creating the corners you see here.  The sentiment is a sticker that I had on hand - no idea where I got it.
This card is a very simple one that is greatly enhanced by the use of the fancy tag mat.  Layering these tags with mats made from nestability dies often creates a nice look.  In this case, as you can see, I used a scalloped rectangle for the dark aqua mat.  Outline stickers provide the sentiment and corner treatment, and a dimensional sticker from the dollar store provides the focal point.
This last card makes use of a variety of dies.  It starts with a basic gate-fold card.  The colored paper is from a DCWV Stack.  As you can see, the focal greeting at the top of the card is created using several Nestabilities dies (Labels One) and a Fleur De Lis Rectangle die.  The sentiment at the bottom of the card is stamped onto a fancy tag and then layered on another fancy tag.
