Featured Artist – Tag You’re It #67

I am really honoured to be the Featured Artist over on the Tag You’re It challenge blog for their 67th challenge. A big thank you to Tracey McNeely for inviting me. If you follow my blog, you would know I am a huge fan of making tags and I also used to be on the Design Team for this challenge. So it is nice to be back as a Featured Artist!

This tag is a little different to my usual style, but I was in the mood for some layers, texture and a more feminine creation. I used some texture paste and a Kaisercraft stencil to add texture to the background. The flower is a Die-Namics die called Upsy Daisies and the sentiment is from a MFT set called Label Maker Sentiments. The leaves die is a Fancy That die called Leafy Swirl.

I can’t wait to see how my tag inspires you. I hope you get a chance to play along. Head to the TYI blog for all the details.

Supplies

Stamps: My Favorite Things – Label Maker Sentiment stamp set

Card: Hero Arts Layering Paper – Shallows, Grey card stock, Black card stock

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti static pillow, Texture Paste, Kaisercraft stencil – Clock Template, Palette knife, Die-Namics die – Upsy Daisies, Fancy That die – Leafy Swirl, Penny Black die – Tagged, Cuttlebug, Twine, Large Clear gem, Liquid adhesive, Patterned paper (Brand unknown for the flower), Foam dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back real soon.

Happy Birthday Turtle Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening! Today I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog using one of Jane’s latest sets called Belated Birthday. I just love me a turtle and this set also has some great snails as well.

The background is quite textured. I found it in my craft pile of unfinished projects (that pile is quite big mind you!) and it was made with some texture paste coloured with distress ink and a stencil from MFT. I have no idea which colour of Distress ink I used though! I have covered the cake and party hat with some clear Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t show up very well in the photo.

This tag is off to my Dad as it was his birthday last week – and I’m a bit late in getting it to him.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Belated Birthday and Doodle Flowers II stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress ink ??

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen, Texture Paste, My Favorite Things stencil – Brick Wall, Palette knife, Foam squares, Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Uniball White Signo gel pen

Thanks for your company today,

Marion

Metropolitan Hugs – Penny Black Sneak Peek

simplicity sister

Hello! Long time, no post!

Well it has been a long time between cards and posting and that’s because we moved house. I’ve unpacked 90% of the boxes, so most things are up and functioning again. I’ve also just finished setting up new new craft space, so I hope to get crafting very soon. It’s been over a month since I have made anything!

Anyway, it’s my turn over on the Penny Black Simplicity at its Best blog today. I made this one before the move. Here is a little peek at my card, but you will have to head to the Simplicity blog for the full reveal.

Blue Birds – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello – just a quick post to share a serene little scene using a Penny Black die called Layered Scene. This die set actually comes with two dies that can be layered, but I chose to use just one of the layers. I die cut the scene from white card stock and then used my Copic markers to selectively colour in the different areas. I did add some dimension on the birds by using some 3D mounting foam.

It is very rare that I make a card with no sentiment, but I felt this one didn’t need one.
