Sending Hugs

Hi Everyone,

you may know that tags are not my forte - in general I try to stay away from them.....but I tried it again, putting them on a card.

First I used an old TCW Stencil and embossing paste, colored with Gelatos. The tags are a Mama Elephant die. The dandelion is an old Hero Arts stamp -one of my favorites - I do LOVE dandelions. The Kraft paper I die cut with a Simon Says die, as is the sentiment. the stamped sentiment is from the matching SSS stamp set. Given my limited experience with tags I am happy with the result.

Had a smile reading that tags are not your forte, Cornelia ... me neither, I avoid them! However, if this card is anything to go by, you should move them into your forte category! It's simply gorgeous ... the colours are beautiful together, I love that dotty background and oh my, that dandelion clock ... just beautiful! Anita :)
cm said…
"Tags are not your forte" you say? Hmmm...I respectfully disagree, because you've created magic with the one you used here! Beautiful colour, beautiful image (dandelion puffs make me smile...); beautiful dotted background. I agree with Anita...move 'tags' into your 'forte' repertoire...

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
