Lava You!!!

Hi!  Today I have this super sweet card up on The Alley Way Stamps Blog, and I just had so much fun playing around with my paper and stamps!


Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps (Prehistoric and Livin Fossils)
Ink: Memento
Patterned Paper: Teressa Collins and DCWV
Die: Avery Elle
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Various Copics
Twine
Foam Adhesive

I started this card by adhering the patterned paper and glitter cardstock to the cardbase.  I then stamped the dino several times on different papers, fussy cut and adhered together.  I also used my copics for his little spikes.  Finally I stamped and added the tag, adhered the dino, and added the sequins!

Wedding Gift Tag

Hi!  Today I am sharing a lovely Wedding Gift Tag on the SweetStamps.com Blog based the on the current challenge: Weddings!  I wanted something soft and rich looking, and so I have created this...






Supplies Used:


To create my tag I started with water color paper and trimmed it into a tag shape.  I then colored my flowers with Distress Markers, spritzed with water and stamped onto the tag.  I water colored with blue around the outside of my image.  I then stamped my sentiment, and die cut along the bottom.  To finish I punched a hole in the top and tied grey satin ribbon through it.

I can not wait to see your creations this week!  Remember that all products are welcome, and earn a double entry if you used a SweetStamps.com product ( they have their own stamps, dies, inks and stencils!!!)

Happy Crafting!
