Just a Little Something

I've been making lots of Christmas tags for a sale at my church to put on packages or maybe tie around the neck of a bottle!
Here's my latest tag - as you can see - I made 3 of them!
Everything I used is from Papertrey Ink accept for the patterned paper which is Paper Stash Tidings from Tim Holtz/Idea-ology.
The tag die is Tag Sale #2, the mouse die and stamps are Christmas Critters.

My design was inspired by this tag by Donna - who was the Featured Stamper over on Splitcoaststampers today.

I'm also linking my tag to:

(I used a mouse instead of a deer, I do have a circle in there and pink on the mouse ears!)

Fusion Card Challenge (I was inspired by the plaid and colors)

Stamps:Christmas Critters, Christmas Critters Sentiments - Papertrey Ink
Paper: white - PTI, Paper Stash/Tidings - Tim Holtz/Idea-ology

Clearly a Tag

Today I have a Christmas Tag to share.  There's no stamping on it accept on the back.  The white cardstock piece was cut with Tag Sale #10 from PTI.  The deer and 25 were cut out of Clearly for Art Blackout Modeling Film using the Mini Reindeer and 25 Movers and Shapers Set from Alterations. 
I added the same white die cut on the back to cover the adhesive on the front piece - and stamped it with To: and From: from the Tag Collection 1 from Waltzingmouse. 
And I cut the tag base out of Clearly for Art Clear Modeling Film using another die from Tag Sale #10 die from PTI.
I'm linking my tag to the Tag You're It challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Christmas is coming - the goose is getting fat!  (along with the rest of us who have been having holiday party after holiday party at work!)

Tag You're It - Cupcake

Today I have a tag to share that I made for the Tag You're It challenge - Nancy Penir has made this sweet tag to inspire us!
 I was inspired by the sweet cupcake and bright colors - and here is the tag I created.
I used stamps from the wonderful Coffee Set by Waltzingmouse and also the coordinating die set. This set has SO many fun images and sentiments on the coffee theme!  The Stitched tag die is also from WMS.  I added red rhinestones and popped the cup cakes up on foam dots.  This tag would look so cute attached to a coffee or cupcake gift given to a friend!

Just the Cutest Little Thing

I'm joining in with the Tag You're It challenge today.
And what a sweet little tag from Jen to inspire us - a cute little bear and fun party balloons on strings!
I decided to go 'baby tag' and pulled out the Sweet Cheeks stamps and dies from PTI.  I was inspired by the primary colors of the balloons,  the blue tag and the bear (I just used bear heads!).  I arranged the safety pins sort of like the balloons.
while I had everything out I made a pink one as well with  pig, chick and frog heads!
You'll find the Tag You're It challenge here.
 I have some photos to share from the Wenham Tea House where my sister and I had lunch yesterday to celebrate her birthday (which was actually in April but we kept having to change the date!).
First,  we had a lovely pot of Earl Gray Tea to share
along with a delicious warm raspberry scone, clotted cream and jelly.
We ordered the Plated Luncheon - assorted Tea Sandwiches of the Day, salad, and grapes.  They also brought us little corn muffins with a delicious cinnamon butter.
For dessert they served a pastry and two cookies (we were so full, we took the cookies home for later!)
All in all, a lovely afternoon with my sister!

I used one of my favorite birthday stamp/die sets for my tag/card today -  Mama Elephants Ella and Friends.  Ella is so adorable and she has several animal friends for her to play with -  today I used the little mouse and put the party hat on Ella.  AND she's so easy to color with just a brush of gray around the edges - I used Copics.
To make the blue background, I sponged the white cardstock panel with Ranger Distress Mermaid Lagoon.  Then I spritzed water over the panel - let it sit to make watermarks - then dried it with my heat tool.   When it was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment in the top corner.
For the tag, I used the WMS Stitched Tag die cutting it out of Soft Stone cardstock.  I cut the little hole cover out of Hawaiian Shores and looped Caribbean and Pink Sorbet Twine through the hole.  I die cut Ella, the hat and little mousie out of white card stock and colored them with Copics.  I adhered the hat to Ella's head layered Ella and the mouse to the tag using foam dots.  I used foam dots again to layer the tag over the blue panel.
I'm linking my tag card to the Tag You're It Challenge where the sweet tag/card below by Anja Curvers was the inspiration.

Stamps:  Ella and Friends - Mama Elephant
Paper:  White, Soft Stone, Hawaiian Shores - PTI

He Will Cover You with His Feathers.....

Today I have a tag to share that I made for the latest Tag You're It Challenge.  Here is the inspiration - a lovely tag designed by Marybeth Lopez.
and here is my tag: I die cut two tags - one out of white cardstock and one out of Gold Luxe Foil DP from PTI.  I gold embossed the leaf on vellum and adhered it to the Stitched Edge Tag with foam dots.  The gold cord is from my stash and I got the little bell as a free gift in an order from Funkie Junkie Boutique.  It made me think of that line in "It's a Wonderful Life" with James Stewart  "every time you hear a bell ring - it means an angel got his wings."  The little bell rings every time I pick up the tag!
I just love this Psalm Verse -  What a marvelously comforting feeling to think God has his wings wrapped around me to protect me.  The Psalm and feather stamps are from Fine Feathers by Waltzingmouse.
Stamps:  Fine Feathers - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  White, Vellum, Gold Luxe Foil DP - PTI
Ink:  True Black - PTI, Versamark
Accessories:  gold embossing powder, Dies - Fine Feathers, Stitched Edge Tags - Waltzingmouse, silver bell - Funkie Junkie Boutique, foam dots, gold cord.

Birthday Wishes Tag Card and Catastropy Averted!

After a little humungous scare yesterday, when I couldn't access my blog (it was there but it didn't recognize my sign in!!) I finally got access again this morning.  I thought I was going to have a heart attack not being able to post  - I could see my blog - but couldn't sign in! I went through Google help page after help page not being able to figure out what to do - and not finding anywhere to contact Google directly other than looking at all the suggestions that didn't apply!   In the process I think I've created another Google account that is out there in cyber space somewhere that does not associate with my blog  -  but at least I'm back and able to post!
So finally after a sleepness night worrying about my blog  -  I have a sweet tag card to share today that I was trying to post yesterday!
First, I stamped the leaf on the Stitched Tag (WMS) and colored it with Brushed Olive Distress Marker, going over it with my waterbrush. I colored the background by rubbing Salty Ocean Distress Ink on my craft mat and then using my waterbrush to pick up the color and watercolor the tag. After I dried the background with my heat tool, I stamped the text from Text It (WMS) in Classic Kraft Ink.   
I stamped the flower from Flower Garden (Tim Holtz) on a scrap of watercolor paper, colored it with Ranger Distress Markers (Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick) then went over it with a waterbrush to blend the colors.  I cut it out and layered it over the stem with a thick foam dot. I covered  the head of the cone flower with Glossy Accents- but you can't really see the shine in the photo.
I think this is the first time that I've looped twine on a card - love the look!  I stamped the sentiment from Fancy Phrases (WMS) on a Sentiment Tag (MFT) and layered it over the tag with foam dots.  Then I added sequins and flowers from Shaker Mix Vanilla Frost (WMS) around the tag.
 I die cut the patterned paper (Correspondence/Paper Stash/Tim Holtz) with a Stitched Edge Rectangle (WMS), layering it to Sweet Blush and then to the Vintage Cream card base. 
I'm linking my tag card to the following challenges:
and reminding everyone about the July Mixed Media Card Challenge

I sponged the smaller tag with Ranger Distress Evergreen Bough ink then flicked water drops onto it and dried it with my heat tool. I layered it onto the larger white tag with foam dots. I colored the images from Ella and Friends with Copics.  The umbrella is popped up on foam dots and the  I added 3 dew drops to suggest the rain.

Waltzingmouse Pajama Party - June 2015

I'm attending the Waltzingmouse June Pajama Party tonight -  are you coming too? 
Around the first of each month Claire posts the challenges for the PJ Party that happens on the 14th of each month over at the Waltzingmouse Blog.  You have almost two weeks to get your projects done and ready to bring to the party.  The party starts at Midnight (Claire's Time in Ireland) and you have 24 hours to link up your projects.  Here are Claire's June Challenges:
Challenge 1 - Can It/Pickle It  Make a project involving canning jars/jam jars
I decided to make a treat bag as I often give gifts of cookies or other treats, especially during the holidays so I like to have them on hand!  The jar, jar cover and cookies stamps are from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, the Sweet Treats sentiment is from Candy Jar Christmas, the For You and little heart stamped on the striped paper are from Jam Packed.  
I cut the tags with the Stitched Tag Die set out of Kraft Core Coredinations paper and then lightly sanded them to reveal the kraft core.  I cut the jar and lid using the Jar Essentials Die set and the little heart hole reinforcer on the blue tag is from the Folding Tag die set.  So cute right?
(Design Tip:  the heart, star, circle and square reinforcer dies are great for filling a shaker card!)
I'm linking my treat bag to the Tag You're It challenge
I was inspired by the design of placing a tag on a gift bag and the food theme!
Challenge #2 - Coffee Color Challenge - Inspiration Photo
For this color challenge, I pulled out a little 4 oz coffee cup and decorated it with a brown strip of patterned paper and stampings from My Island
I stamped the sun stamp in Orange Zest, the beach hut and umbrella in Dark Chocolate and the chillax in Pure Poppy.  I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Brushed Corduroy and layered the pieces onto the sun stamping with foam dots.  I added some sequins, layered the sun to a piece of Pure Poppy and adhered it over the band on the cup.  A cute little treat container!
 (I got the 4 oz cups on ETSY here. thanks for enabling me Amy Tsuruta!!)
Challenge #3 - Old Pajamas -   Use one of your older Waltzingouse Stamps sets to create a project for this challenge! The WMS Design Team will be digging out our USA 1776,  stamp sets for this one.
Perfect timing for this set with the 4th of July coming up in the US!  I hand cut the stamped frame and Miss Liberty and layered them over the card base using foam dots.  I sponged everything with Ranger Distress Brushed Corduroy and added some sequins to the centers of several of the fireworks!
  I'm linking my 4th of July card to Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday

Challenge #4  - Bedtime Story Sketch
I was inspired to make a baby girl card with the Bedtime Story Sketch.  I used stamps from USA 1776 for the banner (see how below).  The Special Delivery and Arriving Soon sentiments are from Little Darlings Images and A Baby Girl and a little bundle of Sweetness are from Little Darling Sentiments.   I used the beautiful Picot Panel Die for the sentiment in the center.   I added 3 Mirrored Stars for some sparkle!
Here's how I made my banner using one of the star arm stamps from USA 1776 (when you put 5 of these together it forms a star) -  I stamped it and cut it out leaving a little white border around the edge.  Then I just cut across it corner to corner to make a banner shape.  I used the larger bottom piece.  I put a piece of ScorTape across the top of each banner on the back and laid the twine over it to hold it in place.  I put a piece of foam tape on each banner so it would pop up off the card.  I flipped it over and spaced the  banners the way I wanted them on the card front.
You can also see how I lined up two sentiment stamps on my acrylic block so it was easy peasy to stamp the two sentiments evenly along the bottom.  For the  single stamp Special Delivery stamping along the top I just drew a line in pencil so I'd stamp straight and erased the line after stamping!

  (Design Tip:  when stamping a sentiment across the whole card - start on one side with part of the sentiment off the edge)
So we really hope to see you at the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party - there are prizes to be won!   You don't have to use WMS stamps but if you have them please do!! You'll find all the details at the WMS blog.
