Scalloped Tag Card

Today I have a Scalloped Tag Card for you, I wanted to try something a little different and it's a very easy card to make. It's mainly just layering your DSP with some Cardstock, then making your Tag and decorating it before adhering it to your card. I also sponged all corners of my tag, butterflies, flowers and sentiment using a Dauber and my Sahara Sand Ink Pad.

Thoughts and Prayers

I have another card for you today using the stamp set Thoughts and Prayers, this time with a different layout. I have masked off the top and bottom and using my sponged brayer sponged with Night of Navy of one card and with Bermuda Bay on the other. I then have added rhinestones just to take the card to the next level. These are great cards for Sympathy or Get Well.

Paisleys & Posies

I have had this stamp set for some time now and haven't used it till today and I am loving the versaltality of it. It is from Stampin' Up!® and is called Paisleys and Posies. I have used Basic Black for both of my card bases, then used Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo and embossed them with the Petal Burst embossing folder. I have then stamped with my versamark ink pad one of the images and embossed it in Silver Embossing Powder, then I cut the piece of basic black cardstock in 1 inch strips to use on both cards to add some dimension. I then cut out using the Stitched Shapes framelits with the two biggest ovals and using dimensionals for the top layer added my sentiment. I then coloured some of the shapes with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and added them to my  card.
