Heart & Love

It has been a while since I've made a TAG-CARD.
This one is top-folding, and a tag is also added to the inside for a handwritten message.
Three distress inks were applied on the SSS-Tag, and the SSS-Die-Cut Heart was adhered.
The SSS-Love sentiment is clear-embossed and inked with the same distress inks.
(Every time I use pink, I am reminded of my Sweet Mom.)

I'm playing along with the following:
 (Worn Lipstick Distress Ink is my Hint of Red.)

Stamps:  (SSS)-Hello Friends
Dies:  (SSS)-Stitched Dress Up Tags, Heart of Roses
Inks:  VersaMark, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry
Other:  Clear-Embossing Powder, Hug-Snug Seam-Binding, Sequins, Foam Adhesive

Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.

Papertrey January 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

I'm playing along with the Papertrey-January 2016 Blog Hop Challenge.
When I first saw the inspiration photo, I immediately thought of using speech bubbles.
After playing around with a design for a while, this is what I came up with.
(Wish I would have hand-drawn a much longer phone cord.)

The phone is clear-embossed.

Nichole provided this photo as our inspiration.

Stamps:  (PTI)-Heart-2-Heart #4
Dies:  (PTI)-Heart-2-Heart #4, Bubble Talk
Ink:  Onyx Black, VersaMark
Other:  Embossing Folder, Sequins, Clear-Embossing Powder, White-Embossing Powder

Thanks for the visit.
Have a lovely day.
