Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and keeping warm and dry, the weather is just so miserable, I had to switch heating on yesterday afternoon as it was so chilly indoors.
Today I am showing you a set of three tags that I made to send to my Swap partner in New York,
I just wanted to add a little something else, but something that was light and not to bulky to post.
The first Tag I just stamped some little flowers in powder pink ink and smudged a little of the same coloured ink around the stamped flower, to give a more informal look. I then added some die cut flowers and little bits of the foliage sprig that comes with the die set. I added a little 'smile' sentiment that I popped on a flag tailed banner, embellished with a flower and some more foliage.
My Second Tag I die cut in Kraft card, backed with some wood effect paper, I used 'Crumb cake' ink which gives an almost 'watermark' effect on Kraft card, I just stamped some foliage sprigs all over in a random fashion. I die cut some of the same flowers that I used on the first tag, in the same powder pink ink (for continuity). I added sprigs of foliage along with those flowers, I then die cut another flag tailed banner and added the die cut 'For You' and added some more foliage sprigs and a pretty blue bird.
My third Tag I die cut in Blue, I added some scalloped borders, some Petite Petal flowers that I punched out, in Powder pink and Soft Sea Foam, I added a piece of Soft Sea Foam polka dot paper at the bottom of the tag and trimmed with a another scalloped border, I finished the tag with the 'Live, Love, Laugh, sentiment pieces.
I finished all flowers with tiny pearls in matching colours, I am quite pleased with how the turned out, I hope my swap partner likes them too.
Sue came over yesterday, we watched a bit of Craft TV, we were both mesmerised by YUPO paper and both of us want to have a play with that and some alcohol inks. Have any of you used YUPO paper? I am keen to hear how you used it and what you thought.
We then went into to craft room after and Sue got busy with her Challenge cards which are Christmas themed!!
I hope that you all have a fantastic day today, whatever you are up to,
Love and hugs to all of you,
