Two Tags

Magic of the Season

I ordered some stencils from Linda Coughlin and I just love them.

For this tag I used Tim’s Festive (THS029) stencil. Along with Stampscapes tall trees and Penny Blacks, On the Town set.  

Dreaming of a White Christmas tag uses The Holiday Knit (THS028) stencil from Tim Holtz. Along with the same Stampscapes trees and Penny Blacks “Dreaming of White Christmas”, Small mittens die from Marianne Design.
Hope you enjoy these tags today and thanks for stopping in.
Have a warm and wonderful day, Vada

You Remember The Old Saying… (A Cold Day In…..)

Well we have that cold day here, plus I’m posting a few cards
and a really fun tag. Has to be very (burr) cold, right?
Hubby went to Menards, and I asked him to drop me off at
The Lighthouse Stamps and Gifts store.
It was something to do while he did his thing in hardware…
Low and Behold I found this stamp that I couldn’t pass up!!
From Impression Obsessions this large
background stamp (5.75 square) called
Bookshelves #CC152 C-A-C.
So here’s a tag that was just way to fun to do.
Then some Fall and Winter Cards.
New from Penny Black

New Die from Memory Box

Tim’s July Tag

 Gee nothing like waiting to the last minute to post my July tag.
But there’s still time for you to get your tag in, please stop by
Tim’s July tag for instructions.
For my tag, I place the Sea Foliage under the embossed clear packing material, in hopes it would give some depth to the tag.

 My Sea floor and Starfish was made using Sawdust shaving, as I didn’t have the required materials Tim listed. I also added glitter , small glass beads and Flower Soft to the sawdust for depth and shading.

I used the following Tim products, Mini Sand and Sea Die, Bird Branch die, Tattered Pinecone die, Branch Tree die, and Sizzix embossing folder.

Thank you for popping in today. Hope you are enjoying this crazy summer weather, or cool summer weather.

Spring Flowers

Over at A Vintage Journey the
Challenge 4 is Spring Flowers so I have made this tag.
I have never had good luck with the Pinecone Die from Tim Holtz, but I thought I would give it another try. 
 I ordered the Found Relatives Cards from Linda at
I found them so large for my likening and thought
I would scan and reduce them to fit my tag.
This little girl won my heart over so she became my first pick for this Spring tag. She was Chalked and stained, don’t you just love this face?
I used the Frameworks Honeycomb die, which was painted and crackled.
The Butterfly is from the Mini Movers and Shapers Die from Tim Holtz. 
Also used The Sketchbook tissue tape on this tag.
Thank you for stopping in, I would also like to apologize for my absence as of late, we were hit by lightning last week end and we are just getting things (some what) back to normal now.
Thank you again for your time. Have a wonderful week.
