These are the tags I bought...
Michelle's stamping is so creative and I love how she mixes many different images in one small project...little works of art...every one of them! You can almost always find a red postage stamp in Michelle's work...stamped or a real postage stamp. It's her signature element.
Another friend, Fernanda, sent me a wonderful "Get Well" gift that included several packages of floral embellishments she thought I would enjoy using in my work.
I decided to take one of those packages and challenge myself to make some cards using the same scrapbook papers on all of them. I've made 4 cards using the yellow/orange flowers and kraft cardstock.
I cut a bunch of circle shapes using Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and arranged and rearranged them to make card layouts. I'm sure that the top card designers can knock these projects out a lot faster than I can. This was an all day project for me....but a fun one!
I will be using some of the pink flowers and maybe some of the butterflies on my next batch.
The last thing I want to show you is a gift bag I decorated for David's Father's Day gift.
I usually make him a card as seen in these from past years...
I did, however, decorate a plain kraft colored bag....
I love button cards and button card images and I used this one...made larger...for this arrangement. I also glued on real buttons. The backing is a page ripped from a Thesaurus, and I chose strips of scrapbook papers that reminded me of men's clothing.
David will see this bag again.....and again. We don't throw hand-decorated gift bags away around here.
The image came from Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made. Her website is amazing and she has tons of freebies to copy and use in your art projects....find some here.
Hope you have a fun weekend. I will be in my workroom creating away!
