Our Theme for this month is:
“All About Christmas”
with an optional twist of GLITTER

2. We will have a mid-month reminder on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
3. Projects are to based on our monthly theme (with or without the optional twist).
4. We will be featuring CUTplorations tag dies.
Please see the below for more PRIZE details and a COUPON.

Here’s my tag, using CUTplorations Manila Tags Nesting Dies.

I stamped the sentiment on the tag in embossing ink and heat embossed.  I also stamped it another time on masking paper. I carefully fussy cut the letters and words out of the masking paper and applied the “stickers” (masks) over the stamped image on the tag.

I also made several tree masks using the same method. Then I stamped the trees over the masked off sentiment and the masked trees. I finished by coloring with Zigs and embellishing with gold gel pen and red glitter glue.

 I also used the STAMPlorations Come Adore HimTypografia Christmas & Sketchy Yule Trees.

I’m happy to be part of this fun Tag challenge at STAMPlorations and hope that you will join in the fun.

Check out the TAGplorations PRIZE details and COUPON code below.

Vintage Flowers- Because He First Loved Us

Hi! I’m happy to be here today with a pretty rose card to share with you. 🙂 img_1776-copy  First I created a a background panel using a variety of Brushos Crystal Colors. I made this panel by picking up some left over color from another project with a piece of watercolor paper.img_1810edited

Then I used Altenew’s VINTAGE FLOWERS Clear Stamp Set, stamping and masking a variety of reds, pinks, oranges and yellows roses around the border of my panel. I added some leaves too.
