Cards - Birthday, Cards - General, Cards - Get Well and Sympathy, Cards Masculine, From the Scrapheap

Happy Scrappy Results

Sorry I didn’t get this post up yesterday, life has this horrible way of jumping in front of me when I plan things. But here we are a day late : )

This is what I did with the 5 of the 6 pieces I showed you on Thursday. Somewhere along the line I misplaced one but I have found it now so maybe tomorrow…..

Back Row: A little Crazy Patched piece that I embossed using the Square Lattice folder (stamp from Bring on the Cake); A cool wee Patchwork square which I added pen  stitching lines to (Stamp from Best of.. Christmas) ; Lastly another Patchwork inspired pattern (stamp from Petite pairs)

Front: Striped pattern with various sized strips then paper pierced and faux stitched Zig Zag stitching in Early Espresso (Stamp from So Sorry); Bargello inspired strips placed in a chevron (Stamp from Tag It)

My fav I think is the So Sorry Card

Sugared Pistachio Tag It

Today I am sharing some cards I made as thank you gifts for some of my ladies. I used a new stamp set called Tag It which is especially great because $3.50 from every set sold in NZ goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities so check out the Tag It set on page 45 of the Annual Catalogue.  I also love that this set can be used with the Chalk Talk Framelits as well. They are certainly on my wishlist.

I love how these two new In-Colours, Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar, go together! I masked off the sentiments on the chameleon stamp with cellotape while I was inking the stamp up then peeled them away before stamping the image. This meant I could add a different sentiment. I used one from Sweet Essentials.

P1020059 (480x640)I tried the Honeycomb embossed piece upside down as well just for a different effect that you can see more clearly in this photo and below I used another new folder, Alphabet Press, for another effect. I cut the tags using the Labels Framelit dies to shape the top and then corner rounded the bottom corners. My trusty paper piercer added detail around the tags along with a template from the Festive Paper Piercing Pack
