Wine tags . . .

Hello there,

Thought I would get in a second post today . . . Whaaaat? That hasn't happened in literally years! Woohoo! It is a great day in the craft room! These are wine tags that I created for a friend who is in a wine exchange. I didn't have the much coveted MFT die yet, so created my own design with my paper cutter and a couple of circle dies. The stitched die came from the Waffle Flower Flower Circles Die set. The stamp set is the MFT Uncorked set and the dies are the Cheers Die-namics and the Wine Service Die-namics dies from MFT. Just love these products! I used some DCWV glitter paper as well as some MFT glitter card stock for the gold, silver and red shine you see. I gold and silver embossed the stamping to match the glitter paper. I love how these turned out!

For those wondering about the measurements I used:

3" x 7.5" for the black card stock background (scored at 3")
3 1/2" x 8" for the glitter background (scored at 3 1/4")

Picture from my friend showing the tags ready to hand out . . . she thinks they are too pretty to give away and wants to keep them now -- LOL! They do look nice in the dim light in front of the fire place don't they?

I think I will enter these in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge as well!

Thanks as always for stopping in!

Happy 60th Birthday

Hello fellow crafters,

As I hibernate on this truly cold, but oh so bright Sunday morning, I thought I would take a few minutes to upload a card. Goodness knows my school life is taking over my crafty life and I rarely get to post anymore. Anyhoo, I thought if perhaps I keep my blog posts to a minimum as far as explanation goes, then I can focus on at least getting my pictures up as I do miss having this record of my crafting.

Today's card is a 60th birthday card. I did some ink blending in the background and then used Versamark Ink to subtly add in the number 60 on the bottom bubbles. The sentiment is from one of my favourite Mama Elephant Stamp sets: Make a Wish. I added some dimension by die cutting the top panel and adding foam tape to pop it up, while keeping the focus on the sentiment by having it show through the window. I couldn't resist adding some clear drops and some cute tiny star confetti.

Here is a close up so you can see the dimension: 

Of course a matching envelope had to be added!

I would like to enter this card in the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.

Thanks for stopping in,
