Folk Art Tag

 Even though this is a card, you still make a tag inspired by something from this card. 
This went to a very special blog friend we all know! You can see Here.

I used Mat Stack 7 and turned it in to a tag, 
this is using the largest die. My ribbon looks gold in the picture but its tan in real life. 
I used my favorite tag sentiment from Serendipity Stamps . 

Thanks for stopping by.

I bought this Celebrate stamp from Impression Obsession set about a month ago. This is the first time I made a card with it.  It's a fun stamp to ink up. Not sure I like where I placed the sentiment. I added just a bit of glitter to the sentiment to make it more solid. I have many ideas for this fun stamp. 

God Bless!

 Here is my card.

Having a bit of trouble, with my photos today. 

Hello, just a quick card today since I had most of the Frilly Flowers stamped already. The true color  of the dots can be seen in the very top photo, they are more slight pink or berry sorbet not yellow.

A Little Sneak Peek Of The March Release

Hello! The twist for the DT is to used vellum,
can you find mine :) 
Hope you can play along. There will be one random winner of a 20$ gift certificate to Serendipity Stamps 

I used just a bit of vellum on my trim of the heart, its gold vellum.

This little elephant has been in my possession for a while and I kinda used him a too early, I couldn’t wait to use him/her. You will be seeing more of him in March. But now he is up on the store and ready to be bought early :)                                                            

I popped this little guy up with some foam tape.....because I messed up the one under him with one smudge :(

Serendipity Stamps  also has some real wood sequins . I just got mine today and I think they would be great for masculine cards and much more!                                                             

Buy 3, Get the 4th one free sale!    Sale runs through next wed 2/25.   The lowest priced item in the cart is free.

One Of My Old Favorites

TIME OUT Challenge #24

This is my first time at this challenge. 
I saw that a few friends  were  playing . 
 This is  Kylie Purtell’s beautiful inspiration card.

Trying to show you the embossed lines.

Making this quick since I have posted a lot this week. I had one of my old favorites out on my desk and decided to just ink them all up again using: yes, my MISTI. Just look at how rich the Stampin Up colors look and some are stamped more than twice ...just because I could!

Thanks for stopping by

God Bless!

Simple Bouquet

 Each image is stamped 3 times for a more solid color. 

 This card is for challenge #4 and #5
Build a bouquet with two or more stamps sets
and for #5 use a stamp that has never been inked(NBUB)

 Very simple bouquet and card. My “ never been inked” stamps are Layered Banner Banter and one of the flowers from 2013 free stamp set. I also used Frilly Flowers  I was able to re-stamp those detailed images 3x using my MISTI

Keeping it short today, hope you have a great day!

Fancy Folk Art Shaker

Hi! Back with a tag for Challenge# 1 and Challenge #3

One flower is a bit messed up because I placed in the wrong spot.

 I had so much fun stamping this folk art image now that I have my MISTI.  First thing I stamped with my new stamping tool and I say it was pretty spot on. I re-stamped many of the images more than twice( for a deeper color) and you would never know it. It always re-stamps in the same spot. I will be using so many more of my Papertrey Ink sets that need to be matched up. 

I used some fun foam on my layers for this shaker card and double sided tape that you can buy for the fun foam. (thanks for the tip of fun foam between layers Susan)

Busy weekend here , so happy to get in my tag for today. 
Hope you have a wonderful day!

Virginia View Challenge #12 
 I decided to add this to Virginia’s challenge. 
This large tag is my card.
