Hello! Hope you are having a good day and thanks for popping by to see my blog.
Today I have a tag I made for the UK stampers forum swap over on Facebook. I love making tags from bits and pieces I have on my desk and I decided to grab some of the flowers leftover from the card I shared a couple of days ago as the main images on this tag.
However the rules of the UK stampers forum is to include stamping so I grabbed the Tropical Hideaway background stamp and Parakeet Party to give this a fabulous stamped and bright background. I then added the fussy cut paper flowers.
Next to decide on a sentiment for the tag and this time I chose the saleabration set Amazing Phrasing and from that made my sentiment.
I did pop the Hey up on foam to give some dimension. Then I hunted through the ribbon box and chose this leftover ribbon which coordinated with the flowers. I decided to mount my tag on a slightly larger piece of the Petal Pink as it felt like it needed framing and this worked well.
I finished off with three sequins that are a dark iridescent navy colour.
Hopefully the swap recipient will like this bright and cheery tag!
I got some new stash to play with and I made a card for my daughter to celebrate the end of her exams … because yes we got there!
I started by stamping the Tropical Hideaway background in Parakeet Party (I love this colour … it’s so fresh!) then some of the leaves from Splendid Thoughts in both the Parakeet and Tahitian Tide. I decided the card needed a pop of pink then so die cut the bowl shape twice from Polished Pink.
Then I grabbed the Amazing Phrasing stamps that are from Saleabration and stamped the Woo Hoo! and the You Did It! in Orchid Oasis … yes using lots of the In Colours on this card!
I layered them all up and added some dimension with foam under one of the sets of leaves and the bowl shape piece. I then added some gems for bling.
I then wrote inside the card and it got messy and smudgy and I ran out of space so I ended up cutting the card front off… adding a panel of the Polished Pink and more foam and adding it to a 6×6 card.
This time my inside writing went fine and job was a good’un!
So you can see both the original and the final card… what do you think? I think the extra pop of pink on the final piece is actually better and helps frame it all … so a happy accident!
