A card and a tag



Hi
Lots to do forum have moved house and has a new name - Lots To Do Revisited! To celebrate some of us are making three items to swap, the theme being 'New Home' We can make anything we wish so my first is a simple tag, inspired by one I saw in CraftStamper. Cut on my Cricut and cuttlebug (nesties) using SU card which I inked with distress ink - milled lavender. The SU flourish is stamped with dusty concord. The cottage is from Clarity stamps and coloured with Copics. Flowers were punched from Magnolia paper. One down two to go! Deadline is middle of next week! Hope I make it!

The card I made for my son's girlfriend Kirsty, The stamp is from Hero arts and I've had it for yonks and now and again I get it out, it is one of my fave stamps. I coloured her very simply with Copics on SU whisper white and sponged milled lavender around the edge. Matted her on to SU card. The word feminine an the embossed corner is from Clarity stamps. To finish I added some lace from The Crafty Boutique.
Thanks for stopping by xx
