Card Recognition

Sunday, July 6, 2014

oh happy day and more….


Oh, happy day!  I made a shaker card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge…  (This is the part where I confess that yesterday was my birthday and I made this card thinking of myself, grin).  Now, if only I can motivate to send it to one of the many fabulous people I love who celebrate birthday love with me in July (the list is far too long).




Next up a tag, super excited about the new Tag you're It challenge, and the first guest designer is the fabulous Virginia, so I had to play along.  I started off stamping the PTI tag with the In Bloom flowers (really need to use that set more often) and then b/c I couldn't fit the PTI wet paint die vertically I wanted to add another layer to the tag and since I have a (cough cough) messy desk, there are often scraps sitting at arm's reach for inspiration, so I used a tag I'd cut from one of the many letterpress wedding invites and added a whole layer of glitter watercolor and added a doily (b/c we don't actually need to read the directions to the wedding from 2013, right?).  And I added some May Arts silk and some vellum to the tag and presto.  Will have to put this tag on a card base and use it for one of the many birthday goodies I got…..



And the top card I wanted to have the background of the shaker card white, so I die cut the patterned paper and presto, had the pieces for a second card.  I'm using inspiration from Jen's Muse Club, you can see the inspiration, right?  Round… happy….  drinks on the beach?    Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend…
