STAMPlorations Takes TIME OUT for a Birthday

Hi! I’m here with a special post for STAMPlorations to celebrate Time Out Challenges’ 3rd birthday.

Image result for happy birthday clip art

I used my STAMPlorations Happy Sunflower stamp to make 2 cards.img_7388_edited-1

HappySunflowerLARGE

I stamped the sunflower in brown ink on 2 panels with my Misti and then die cut the rectangles. preview-CrazyDoubleRunningStitches-RectangleI used the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. img_7383_edited-1Then I colored in the frame of 1 panel and the center of the other and reassembled the panels.

The sentiment is from the lovely stamp set, Faith Expressions – Shery Russ Designs.

LOVE TAGplorations Hop – Day 4 – February 11, Saturday

Hi! I’m here for the 4th day of the LOVE TAGplorations event. The event will last for 7 days, with the final day being Valentine’s Day. The STAMPlorations Girls will be showcasing love-themed or Valentine’s Day tags or projects which include tags. You can play along too!

slide2

Here’s my rainbow “XOXO” tag:img_7240_edited-2

First, I die cut my tag using the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

preview-CrazyDoubleRunningStitches-RectangleI used the Hearts All Over – ARTplorations Stencil

preview-web-stencil-007-hearts.jpeg

img_7237_edited-2

I die cut the XOXO sentiment out of the tag using the CUTplorations XOXO Word Die.

Then I sponged R.O.Y.G. & blue inks onto another, white “XOXO”

preview-XOXO-CUTplorations

 and inlaid the inked up die cut back into the tag.  I added some bits of mixed media pieces to the edges of the tag and then dry embossed the entire tag.

img_7240_edited-3

I added a small hole with a circle hole punch and attached my raspberry tinted twine.

I had a lot of fun making this tag and I hope that you enjoyed seeing it. Please make sure you stop by and check out the STAMPlorations Girls’ superb creations!

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
Melissa
