Hello (Tag-Card)

Hello & Welcome!

As some of you may know, I really enjoy making Tags & Tag-Cards.
My inspiration came from the colors in the photo at Moxie Fab-Tuesday Trigger-Wake-Up Call.

This is the Tag-Card that I created.
The "hello" & the blue strip are clear embossed with the Tiny Ink Spots stamp.

Stamp:  (Hero Arts)-Tiny Ink Spots
Dies:  (PTI)-Tag Sale #3, Wonderful Words-Hello
Ink:  VersaMark, Black Ink
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, Silver Bead, Hemp Cord

Thank you for your visit!

Thinking Of You

Hello & Welcome!

Jacqueline creates the most beautiful cards and tags, and she inspires many of us.
She is having a Grid-Tag Challenge in the Hero Arts Flickr group.
This is a card I made for her challenge, & for the April Hero Arts contest.
(It was so good to use up some paper scraps.)
The vellum strip also serves as a pocket to house the three removable tags.
(I will be sending this to my Dear Mom, to let her know I'm thinking of her.)
Check out the challenge for lots of wonderful inspiration.

Stamps:  All stamps by Hero Arts:  Classic Tea Flower, La Letter, Lattice, Square Pattern, Say It All
Paper:  PTI-Cardstock; K & Company-Patterned Paper; Vellum
Ink:  VersaMark, Distress Inks
Die:  Spellbinders-Tags
Other:  Copic Markers, Seam Binding, Pearls, Border Punch, Foam Adhesive

Have a wonderful day!

Collage stamping is a technique I enjoy seeing on cards.
However, I've only tried the technique one other time, that I can remember.
(Check out all the lovely entries with collage stamping.)
