Tags So Much - Part Two

The last two cards using the Stampin' Up! set called "Tags So Much." I inked this first stamp up with markers. It's hard to tell, but I added tiny dots of yellow Liquid Pearls to the flower centers. I matted with green and mounted on foam squares. I also added a small piece of green for the bottom layer.
I'm sure I have never posted an Easter card in August before, but I guess I have now! LOL! The sentiment is from a SU! set called "All Year Cheer." The rabbit is from the tag set. I did the little bit of coloring with markers. I added the scored lines and matted with patterned paper.

Tags So Much - Part One

Today's cards (and tags) all use the Stampin' Up! set called "Tags So Much." It consists of six tag stamps. These four are actually tag-shaped. The cards I'll share tomorrow are not. I'm really tired of using tag stamps! With the cards for tomorrow, I'm done with tags - at least for a while. I'll be moving on to my next stack. That means I'm about half done. At this rate, I should be done about next October.

I stamped this spider stamp onto orange cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating SU! punch. I colored the spider with a medium gray Copic marker. I colored the border with orange. I added Diamond Glaze to the eyes. (I should have colored them white first, though.) I matted with black and mounted on foam squares. The patterned paper is from Recollections. I matted that with orange and then black. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions.
I'm not sure what this card could be used for, but it is "sew sweet." :) I paper-pieced the flower and added an enamel dot to the center. I matted with the same paper as the flower and mounted on foam squares. The bottom layer was cut with a die at our Group Gathering in June.

And here are two more tags that have not yet been made into cards. I inked the valentine one with pale pink ink and and colored the words with a red marker. I matted with red and added a red mini brad.

For the Christmas one, I colored with markers and matted with red.

Turquoise and Brown Color Swap

I decided to sign up for the color challenge in my stamping group this month, but kind of ran out of time. Here is the simple card I made. While I was at it, I made two more! The stamps are both from My Favorite Things. I stamped them using dark brown ink on turquoise and matted with dark brown. The card base is kraft.

Terrific Tags #3

Here is another card using a stamp from the Stampin' Up! set called "Terrific Tags." There are six stamps in the set, but I decided to only use three of them. So, this completes my use of another set!

I stamped the image with Versamark on purple cardstock and used white embossing powder to emboss it. I then punched it out with the coordinating punch. The patterned paper is from a Recollections matstack and the die-cut and embossed leaf was in my "stash." I'm pretty sure it came from my friend, Vicki, several years ago. Thanks, Vicki!

Tiny Flowers Birthday

This isn't even a "card parts" card - it's a scrap card! Everything on it is a scrap except for the green matting on the silver piece. The little rectangles are left over from yesterday's window card. I stamped on them with a teeny tiny flower from a Technique Tuesday set, colored them with Copics and mounted on foam squares. I also added a tiny gem to the center of each flower. I found the scrap of green and punched the border using a Martha Stewart punch. I also scored a line under the punching. The silver piece was just sitting on my table, so I embossed it with the Darice "Wire Fence" folder which was also sitting on my table! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

To my "anonymous" commenter from a few days ago on my glittery sticker card - there is no "fussy cutting" on that card. Without going into detail, you put the sticker on the sticky paper, cover it with microfine glitter and then color the flowers.
