Patchwork Tag-Card

When I saw Melissa Phillips' video - PTI-Make It Monday #96-Patchwork Die-Cuts,
I knew I wanted to experiment with the Patchwork technique.
Since I really enjoy making Tag-Cards, I played around with the design on the PTI-Tag Sale #5 die.
I love the My Mind's Eye-Lost & Found Christmas patterned paper.
This is my second attempt at stitching on paper.
(I'm still needing more practice.)
 This Tag-Card is for my Dear Husband.
Stamp:  Hero Arts-Year Round Sentiments
Die/Punch:  PTI-Tag Sale #5, SU-Star Punch
Paper:  PTI-Cardstock, My Mind's Eye-Lost & Found-Christmas
Ink:  Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, VersaMark

Thank you for stopping by today.

Who loves Buttons?

Hope you are having a fantastic day!
The current temperature in my part of the USA is 47.  Yeah!  I'm loving it!

As I was looking through some items that I recently received from a Flickr friend,
I couldn't stop looking at ALL the fabulous buttons (in one of my favorite colors) she sent. 
Then I looked through ALL the patterned paper I've bought/collected,
 (I really need to put it to good use.)
and found this lovely "Simple Stories-Documented" 6 x 6 paper
that I thought would work beautifully with the lovely buttons. 
I strung the buttons on twine, and added a glue dot behind each button.
After playing around with the design, this card came together rather quickly.
WOW...I love those buttons!  Thanks, Rosemary!

Stamp:  Hero Arts-Good Friends
Paper:  Kraft, Simple Stories-Documented
Ink:  Coffee-Archival, Brushed Corduroy
Other:  Twine, Clear Embossing Powder

Thanks for your visit & your sweet comments. 
Have a fantastic day!

Love You Tons

When I discovered the Cloud9 blog, I was super-excited! 
It would give me an opportunity to use my Wplus9 stamps and dies.

The two inspiration photos provided are simply lovely.
I was inspired by the colors, canvas, and hearts.


This is the Tag-Card I made.
