The image is a rubber stamp I have. I colored it with my pencils. I used a medium small stitching die cut, layered on a light blue on the next size stichrd diecut. Used the same light blue paper for the strip. The embossed is a quilted pattern, layered on the same light blue on white cardstock. I added 2 clear gems in the center of the flowers. .
The tag is a diecut from my stash. Part of it was preprinted. I used a small stitched diecut for my sentiment, distressed it with my black ink. I popped it up with foam tape. I used black, dk and lt teal ribbon to make the tag string.
Background is rust and cream striped paper, I used a scrap of solid rust embossed and layered on a cream doily half. I used a rubber wispy wheat stamp is rust ink. I layered a tiny leftover piece of the rust in Boston paper and then made a tag out of solid rust paper and embellished with string in a buttOn
I like dabble in all kinds of crafting. My Mother in law recently took up making jewelry and on our last visit to AZ, we took a class to make these bracelets. The stones were purchased at a gem store. I chose turquoise and coral stones. We purchased the wire and silver metal from Hobby Lobby. The thick wire was snaked to form the bracelet to fit my wrist. Then we started the process of stringing the beads on the thin wire and winding around the thick wire as we went. When we got to the end, we made an eyelet on each end and put a claw clamp as the clasp. The thick wire is a soft metal and bends very easily. I enjoyed taking the class and have a beautiful 1 of a kind bracelet as a keepsake.
Cardstock is a medium grey textured cardstock.the diecut is one that I had in my stash as are the bells and wedding cake. I added white pearls on the bells and cake and a silver glittery bow. Because the lacy diecut is from a metallic paper, I wrote the sentiment on with a puffy black gel pen.
For this graduate 🎓 gift card, I used black cardstock 4x11. I made the cuts to form the cap and then made the folds. I used gold string to make the tassel and attached it with a large shinny bronze Brad. I cut the white paper just a bit smaller than the black and glued together. I colored my image in red, white and blue colors with pencils. I folded up the bottom 1.5 inches of the black paper to form the gift card
This is a floral embossed pattern on the yellow textured paper this scrap behind it was from my stash and I did some faux stitching around the diecut and I don’t cut A doily in half for the bottom. Added a paper butterfly with Gem stone in the top corner.
