SSS Flickr Challenge #19

Yeah! Another long weekend is coming up again - so happy especially the weather is predicted to be good.

Onto the card for today, I chose the colour challenge from Color Throwdown and making my own background from SSS Flickr Challenge.   I realised that I've been making tags lately but I don't know why - it just came to me!

I used all the mini stamps from Simon Says Thinking of You set and stamped them randomly.  Then, I cut a piece of tag from vellum and machine-stitched along the sides.  As for the sentiment which is also from Simon Says, I swiped the sames colours on a white cardstock and run thru the CB.

Have a good and crafty day!

TKJ #224

I am going vintage with some shabby chic today with a tag card!  The tag is stamped with HA Manuscript Background with TH vintage distress ink and lightly distress the edges as well.  I also machine-stitched the along the edges in pink thread.

The dress form is from PTI which is die-cut twice : one on kraft and another in white cardstocks.  The white cardstock is stamped with PTI Damask in TH vintage ink and distress in Victorian Velvet.  Wrapped the dress form in laces and added some pearls as a necklace.  Before attaching the dress form onto the tag, I added some metalic thread.  The background leaves are from SU die cuts.

It seems like a lot of die cuts today.... The next one is the fence from MFT and those little flowers are from Memory box.

I am entering this tag into All Sorts Challenge - No Square Allowed, The Kraft Journal - Vintage and Vintage Stamping - Shabby Chic challenges.

Added white sequins on the flowers.

Thanks for dropping by!

WPlus9 - Get Sketcy with Joni #1

** edited : Top Picks at Colour Me & TKJ **

Getting "krafty" again for this week's card.  Basing the the sketch from WPlus9 and picking three items from The Kraft Journal which are "tag, feminine and stamped".  As for the colours, I am using the colour inspiration from Colour Me.

For this card, I used the WPlus9 Fresh Floral Cut stamped, coloured and die cut.  I thought it would be fun to die-cut the teapot from Poppy Stamps on an acetate.   The sentiment is stamped with Staz-on black on the teapot.

Usually, I keep the rib cardstock from my food packaging and this time I just had to use it for as my tag. I thought to zig-zag machine stitched the kraft would give a little more interest on the kraft on kraft look!

I am also entering this into Verve StampsStamping Sensations and AAA Cards for celebrating their 1st Birthday!

The Mix Media

I made a tag by die cutting the blue burlap and sticked it onto a white cardstock to make it firm.  I hope the edge of the burlap is considered jagged as this is one of the challenges in Butterfly Challenge. Then, I used embossing paste from MFT circle stencil randomly.  The butterfly is from the HA set Antique Engravings which is watercoloured with distress inks.  Then added icicles stickles and added a some metalic twine.

I would like to pop this into the following challenges : The Mixed Media CardThe Craft Stamper and Inspiration Journal challenges.

The weather is lovely today with blue sky.  Thanks for dropping by!

The base card is first stencil lightly and stamped with PB Delicate Floral and coloured in copics.  I must say that I don't usually chose this colour combination but must say that it turned out to be "fresh" looking!

The edges are distressed and added stickles on the flowers.  I also coloured lightly around the edge of the flowers.

What a lovely make at PTI this week by Melissa P. using gelatos to soften the look of the stamped images.

The stamp set which I used for this card is from PTI Folk Arts and the sentiment is from Topiary Tree.  Instead of using gelatos, I pulled out my antique chalk set to apply on the stamped images and it looks just as lovely as using gelatos! As this is a Clean and Simple style, I am popping this card into The Card ConceptSimon Wednesday Challenge  and Verve Stamps.

Weather has been weird today.  We are experiencing rain, storm and hails again and in between greeted by the lovely sun!  Hope your weather is nicer!
