Turtle Tag


Hello, firstly I would like to welcome some new followers to my blog. Thanks for joining me in my little world. Today I have a tag to show you using some Creative Expressions Stamps and a Chocolate Baroque Stamp. I have stamped the Turtle, Anchor and Seahorse (creative Expressions) stamps with Memento ink and coloured with my Copic markers. I also stamped the Seaweed stamp (Chocolate Baroque) and also coloured with my Copic's. I then added Glossy Accents to the seaweed, anchor and turtles shell. The background papers are from My Minds Eye 'Complete Boy' collection. The fish in the background are also a Creative Expression stamp, which I have stamped and added Stickles to. The shells were from my local  shell shop and the gem was from my stash. This card is 4 x 6 inches. 
Thanks for stopping by.

With Love Birds

Hello, today I have a card to show you using Kanban's 'In The Garden' paper pad. I cut the image of the two birds out of the frame and filled it with some backing paper, a border, some lace and beaded pearls. I then used the image of the birds with Spellbinders dies to make the circles and decoupaged the birds. The swirls are also from the same sheet as the bird toppers and the 'With Love' sentiment is a Kanban stamp. The flowers were made once again using Woodware paper flowers, Marianne Design's Dies and a Tonic punch. The gold rhinestone were from my stash. This card measures 8 x 9 inches.
