Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.
 
Needed Supplies & Filters :


Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Jennifer Nilsson (http://www.jenniferlnilsson.com) which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through My Tag Art here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous FTU scrap kit from Scraps Dimensions called "Sweet Valentine" which can be downloaded here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask160 by weescotslass which can be downloaded here.

Template of Choice .. I have used Template #4 also from Scraps Dimensions which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice ..  Pointed Brush

Let's get started

Open your template in PSP & delete credits. Floodfill your background layer with white.

New raster layer just above your background layer. Select all, copy and paste into selection Paper 2. Select none. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask160, invert transparency unchecked. Merge group. Resize 120%.

Copy and paste Doodle, resize 85% & drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout. Position on the right hand side. Layer duplicate & resize 85%. Position a lil lower on the same side.

Select Raster 2 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 6, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Raster 2 layer.

Add the following gradient glow & then drop shadow. 

Select Raster 3 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 10, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Raster 3 layer.

Select Raster 4 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 5, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Raster 4 layer. Add drop shadow.

Select Raster 5 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 2, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Raster 5 layer. Add drop shadow.

Select Raster 7 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 9, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Raster 7 layer.

Select Raster 6 layer, select all/float/defloat, copy and paste Paper 8, selections invert and hit delete. Select none and delete original Raster 6 layer.

Select Raster 9 layer. Adjust color balance/manual color correction from black to #bd104a. Adjust/add remove noise/monochrome uniform checked/50%. Add the same gradient glow and drop shadow as before.

Select Raster 10 layer. Adjust color balance/manual color correction from dark gray to #ec5c8f. Adjust/add remove noise/monochrome random checked/50%. Add gradient glow and drop shadow.

Copy and paste branch, resize 85%, rotate left 15 & drop shadow. Position on the left hand side.

Copy and paste Heart 1, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position hanging from the rectangular frame.

Copy and paste your tube, resize 85%, mirror & drop shadow.

Copy and paste Envelope & resize 50%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of the envelope frame, selections modify/expand 3. Copy and paste your image below your envelope frame layer, resize image as necessary, selections invert and hit delete. Select none.

Merge down the Envelope frame & image and then drop shadow. Rotate right 15 and position bottom right hand corner.

Copy and paste Valentine's Candy, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Add copyright and name on your tag. I have used Pointed Brush, Size 60, color #da2e67. I then added a noise effect (adjust/add remove noise/monochrome uniform checked/50%) and then added the same gradient glow & drop shadow as before.

Save and you are done.

For a lil extra twist, I added a bling to my finished tag.

The bling I have used is from KatNKDA's Member's group. Any bling will work, the only difference will be the amount of layers.

Open your bling & finished tag (.jpg with white background) in Animation shop. Check how many layers your bling has .. mine had 4 .. so you need to duplicate your tag until you have 4 layers also (edit/duplicate selected). Select your bling, select all & copy. Edit/propagate paste. Select your tag, select all, edit/paste into selection and position your bling on your tag where you would like it to be.

View animation to see if positioning is to your liking. If your bling has movement, you may have to undo and redo to position to where it flows well, or even resize your bling before starting. Save as gif.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. Pls feel free to experiment and use my tutorial as a guide.

Please feel free to send me your results. I'd love to see what you came up with.
