Two Tags and a Card

I too stopped in at
Frilly and Funkie on Saturday and tried the
Saturday Step x Step: Faux Leather , by Anita Houston , I must say it was so much fun I can’t wait to try another one.
I only had the Perfect Pearls and Perfect Ink Refersher, so I can’t enter this.
I embossed my tag, with a Sizzix folder then tapped on Memento’s Pistachio ink. 
The Dress form die was cut from Embossed Felt and tapped with Black Memento’s ink
The charming little lady was a Google image,
and the frame is from Graphic 45.
I also tried the
Here again I didn’t have all the products need to apply for this challenge.
I used Alcohol inks to alter the hardware and sponged on distress inks to color my tag. Love the bold color.

My card was made for a friend who loves graphic’s.
The background image is from
Stamps are Hero Arts and Cornish Heritage Farms.
The Heart was a vellum tag that I removed the vellum and crocheted around.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today, hope you stop into Frilly and Funkie and give this tag a try.

Love Your Style

Over the week-end I had a little (Sew-Stampin’) fever.
The results of this fever is this card.
I stamped my spools of thread image on regular cardstock and colored with
Prismacolor pencils, then re-stamped the image on brown tissue paper, to copy the look of a sewing pattern. I cut out all the thread spools, and glued the tissue paper in place. 
Kinda like reverse paper piecing.
Stamp credits are; Club Scrap (Spools of Thread),
Rouge Redhead Designs (Love Your Style).
This image was stamped on cotton fabric, and the thread spools was repeated on the (Mover & Shapers) Dress Form.
The little shears die is from Provo Crafts.
Thanks for stopping in today, stay cool and have a great week.

Shirl’s Blog and watch the video.
I’ve used a ton of stamps, some that have never been used, what fun!

Wings and Things

This is a fun little card I made with new papers from ”The Paper Loft”, and new inks from Memento’s.
Papers were Cedar Run SpM107 and Gentler Times GT105
They had such a nice fall outdoors feel to them I could not resist using
Stampers Anonymous Butterflies with them.
My inks were, Pistachio, Peanut Brittle, Toffee Crunch, Espresso Truffle and Olive Grove.
For texture I added a small wooden tree limb cutting, and some Maple tree seeds.
Thanks for stopping in today, have a wonderful Fourth of July.
