2022-11-29; Tag #15; catch a Butterfly

2022/11/29

Tag #15

This tag was cut with the Cricut from the cartridge Picturesque. It cut the green tag and the brown mat. The tag has drywall tape in the background for texture.

I also added some die cuts, butterfly stickers, a doily, punched book page flowers and cheese cloth.

And remember back in the late 90’s? The big thing back then was fancy fibers added to your cards. I have a butt load of them and the tags are really helping me put them to use.

The central medallion is actually a dollar store sticker. I just added the sentiment to it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Here we are at Tag #14.

This is actually a 3-layer tag cut with the Cricut and the cartridge Picturesque.

Just a close look at the sentiment

And one more look at the tag before you go on about your day…

2022-11-27; Tag #13; Flight of the hummingbird

2022/11/27

For this tag I used a die that cut through the tag so you can make a fancy folded pattern. It is a Spellbinder’s Shapeability die called Diamond Strips and Accents.

I used a dollar store sticker for the center of the fancy folded die.

And one last look at the tag before you go on about your day…

2022-11-26; The hunter scores! CR138-94

2022/11/26

This card is for Craft Roulette Episode #138. Here is what we were supposed to include in our designs:

First off, the window. The window is the gun-site.

Next the colors of red (laser site on deer); yellow is for the 3 gems and the +1 is a gray-blue on the wood grain.

The November element is the deer hunting theme; a big thing in Wisconsin at Thanksgiving.

And finally, the 3 circles. I actually have 2 sets of 3 circles. The first are the 3 yellow round gems. The 2nd set of circles is the hole in the wood grain, The gun site and then the tiny circle of laser site on the deer.

I used the Cricut cartridge of Outdoor Man and cut the gun site at 2.5″

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day…

2022-11-25; bright & cheery birthday card CR139-95

2022/11/25

I didn’t get around to sharing last weeks Craft Roulette card. Here is what we were to include in our designs:

I used a gold foil rub on for the Birthday sentiment.

My 3 bright colors are yellow, red & purple

For the pot element, I used a flower pot.

If you look at the background you will see shadow blocks stamped in various sizes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Today’s card is a faux center step card. The wreath came from the Stampin’ Up (SU) set called Wonderous Wreath. The sentiment & center leaf is from the set Falling Leaves.

I hope you are enjoying good food, family and friends!

Thanks for stopping by.

2022-11-23; Tag #12, Pleasant Words

2022/11/23

This is tag #12. The sentiment is an old retired Stampin’ Up set called Say it with Scripture.

A combination of fancy 3-d stickers & die cut leaves.

2022-11-21; Tag #11; Let the Heaven’s Sing

2022/11/22

This is Tag #11.

A friend of mine asked me to die cut a bunch of deer and put it in the mail to her. After I packaged them up I found one on the floor. I colored it up using alcohol markers and smacked it down on a tag.

I tried to do some blending in the background, but I’m kind of hopeless. I basically just added light colored clouds.

I cut the words out of the sentiment they were in and popped them up.

And one more look at the tag before you go on about your day…

Thanks for stopping by.

This tag contains both fussy cutting and die cutting.

A close look so you can see some detail

And one more look at the tag before you go on about your day…

2022-11-20; Left overs from craft day, Tag #9

2022/11/20

When I went to craft day I took a sample of an origami fold that we were going to use to make one of our cards. That’s the zig-zag orange piece on the tag. Rather than toss it, I added it to this tag and it turned out to be just the right length.

These fun 3-d stickers are on my desk in a pile. I’m trying to use the loose stuff up and these flowers happened to be there.

And one more look at the tag before you go on about your day….
