Birds and Blooms Tag with Hearfelt Creations

This layered tag was so much fun to make.  The base tag was stamped with versa mark, heat embossed and then covered with vintage photo distress ink to create a lovely background.  Some of the birds and butterflies in the background were colored in lightly with colored gave a very soft effect. 

Please be sure to go to the Heartfelt Creations blog and see a complete listing of supplies and detailed instructions for this tag and many other projects.

Graphic 45 Artisans Style is knocking


The area of the country that I live in has a lot of bungalow inspired housing and arts and crafts style all around.  In fact yearly they hold an Arts and Crafts conference at a local Inn, The Grove Park and I’ve attended numerous times.  I’ve been in love with this style for as long as I can remember and have always said one day I’ll live in a craftsman style house.  This collection embodies the colors, motifs and designs of that design era.  So I may not live in that type of house quite yet, but at least I can make pretty projects with the Artisan Style collection until then, LOL. 

Something that really makes this card pop is one of Graphic 45 latest additions to the staples line,  the lion door knocker.  He is so cool and I can’t wait to use more of them in other projects, you’ll love them.   I know they’ll do great on box and mixed media pieces but to me he just had to adorned the front door of my card.
